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.

Lots of negative comments...mostly from insecure white men and insecure black women. Go figure!

Why not, that's the Hollywood way.
They were an odd couple. Never figured what she found attractive about him physically. oh well.

...Seal's net worth is 15 million. Heidi's net worth is 70 million. If there is no prenuptial agreement guess who will come out smelling like a freshly washed seal....Artofwar

well he should have never married a woman of a different color anyway. i dont know what is wrong with these black men these days. they need to stay with their own color. all these single black women out here.and the others are just taking them away from us. shame on these men.

Okay, from a superficial perspective (which TMZ is all and only about!!), this is happening A LOT later than people expected. I mean, c'mon, this is Hollywood...Seal is GROSS by Hollywood standards, he's really unattractive by any standards. Sure, it's great that Heidi found something special and was able to see past it...though I bet he has a big wang and she's a sexaholic, thereby explaining her "openness". She really seems like an airhead, TBH.

Anyways, apologies to the kids, at least they'll grow up with rich and privileged lives. If I had to bet, Seal will sink away to respectable oblivion (pretty much what he has done up until now) and Heidi cements herself as the fame whore we all suspected her as being and we watch her looks degenerate into pretty much average in the next 10 years. And btw, do us a favor NO LIP INJECTIONS!! They're never good, especially if you had none to begin with.

She is an utterly miserable person. Typical attention whore-I've seen Seal visibly cringe when she makes it all about her. She needs to marry a mirror or a paparazzi.

Poor Seal!! I know he's heartbroken about losing a treasure like Heidi. Beautiful, sweet and rich and famous! Impossible to replace. I wish him healing and their kids the best.

Heidi, I don't have to wish well, she's so fabulous; I know she'll be fine.

Because none of those people out there should be allowed to be involved in any way with anybody in any kind of acting, wrestling, singing, etc... because it's like being inbread....

She is such a pig. I'll bet Germany is real proud of her. Geez, she'd have sex with a bull.
