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.

Maybe Heidi Klum thought that Seal will become white after more than 5 years of marriage but she was wrong. The second reason was maybe Heidi earns bigger than Seal. I hope they don't get divorced, I like them.

It's official. Marriage does not work for anyone if these two divorce! (my perception of her is she is self-absorbed)

How and the world could you renew your vows every year and then all of the sudden want a divorce. They were just putting on an act i guess. It is such a same. It seem's no one takes marriage serious anymore. Good luck to both.

What's with all these divorces lately? Doesn't anyone try anymore? All relationships have their troubled times. You work through it and the relationship gets stronger. Sometimes it seems like half these celebs do it for attention and to have a big ass party.

First time I've ever been surprised by a celebrity divorce. Are you sure your source is reliable?

What a disappointment! Publicly their relationship always seemed so strong. Seems like 2012 might be the year we see two of Hollywood's "strong" relationships collaspe. Heidi and Seal, and Will and Jada. I hope both these relationships survive. Lead the way..set an example..work your issues out...save your marriage. Live up to the vows you made.

I think they were putting on a big show with all their photo ops while on vacations. By the way, Heidi is worth 20 million and Seal is worth about 20 bucks!

I always got a strong sense that he was a control freak with anger management issues. The two were being videoed coming out of a restaurant a few years back, and you could easily see how he was demanding that Heidi follow his demands to stay quite and not say anything. Seal was also shown driving down a wrong way street like a maniac to avoid the cameras with no regard to traffic or pedestrians. Good for her to get out of his dominating control.
