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.

Seal betrayed Heidi. The whole story will come out soon. He wasn't faithful. She put up with his temper and controlling personality because she loved him and also for the children. Yes, she loved him!! But now that he has betrayed her, she is done!

If you cling too tightly, you're gonna lose control...
Heidi seemed to be "muted" not herself, I've been in a controlling relationship before, all the signs were there.
Good for you Heidi, Seal, get a grip.

All these stupid comments about Seal, SHE pursued him! The scars on his face is from a childhood illness, you idiots! I'm sure she is no prize to be with at all times either. Nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors and if you did it would surprise you everytime.

Too bad, but not too surprising. When the "show" is more important than anything else, that's often the result. She seemed to love the spotlight and spending $$$$ hand over fist while making sure everybody knew about it, including their look-at-me! yearly marriage renewals. If there was a beast in that relationship, I'm betting it was her.

What is this world coming to when a supermodel and a singer from the past can not make it work. Look at the pictures, they are both trying to be in front.

Maybe TMZ, should start a bet for us to participate in on what celebrity couples are gonna get divorced next. Maybe it's already running in Vegas. Does anybody now ?

Guys... i love you but everytime you report a divorce you say they will ''cite irreconcilable differences' like that's some kind of newsy info.. .As Harvey well knows, CA is a no fault divorce state.. .that's just a routine box you have to check off on form. It means nothing. xoxo

Seal is part *****ian. I married a *****ian thinking he was the sweetest thing too. I'll bet you everything I got...(which is about $5 dollars:)) that he is crazy as hell, but very good at putting up the nice/sweet guy front when everyone is looking.
