Heidi Klum to

File for Divorce

from Seal

Heidi Klum
will file for divorce from Seal ... TMZ has learned.

Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ ... Heidi will file divorce papers in L.A. County Superior Court as early as next week. We're told Heidi will cite "irreconcilable differences" as the cause for the divorce.

The couple married May 10, 2005. They have 3 biological kids. Seal adopted Heidi's eldest girl from a prior relationship.

The couple is famous for renewing their vows every year on their anniversary ... in a lavish ceremony.

As for splitting up the goodies, there's a lot on the line. According to Forbes, in the last year alone, Klum raked in $20 million. It's unclear how much Seal made.

Heidi attended last Sunday's Golden Globes without Seal. The last photo she tweeted with him was back on December 26.

The last time TMZ filmed Seal and Heidi together, we asked her what the key to a successful marriage is. She didn't answer the question.

That's too bad. They seemed like one of the more stable and "real" couples in Hollywood.

People live too long and they grow apart. It's unatural to be together for so long.

I would be highly embarrased to publicly state that she fell for the guy because of the size of his package! Just a little too tra**y

"...It's unclear how much Seal made...." Let me clear it up for you. Not much, compared to $20 mil.

Not even a month ago they were like this: https://twitter.com/#!/heidiklum/status/151388493799628800/photo/1
do you really think that after so many years and 4 kids they're going to go from cuddling to divorcing in just a month? I don't buy it.

I never heard of him being abusive, but if - IF - he has problems with control and anger issues, and hasn't been able to solve them during 6 years of marriage, she may not have much choice other than divorce.

I never thought he was ugly at all. Scarring doesn't necessarily make you ugly. I think they were (are) in love for real. And the racism on this thread, especially the sexually charged racism, is just disgusting. For you porn racists who have obviously fantasized intimately about this marriage - don't worry, morons, she is not going to pick you. Neither would I (and I'm white).

Heidi Klum is a goddess, so I don't know what she was doing with Seal in the first place. Either she REALLY loves his music (not likely) or he's hung like a donkey.

Not a surprise! This unholy union was never blessed by God.Why are all of you approving of this couple? Is the way you want to see your daughters married with?

She had said it was what he had between his legs that drew her attention to bim in a hotel lobby. I guess she found out later the same day.
