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.

I am so happy to see their marriage crumble.For years Klum rubbed it in our face how awesome her marriage was and how so in love they were and what a hot lover her black man is. It reminded me of the dope Eva Longorai always talking about how hot her Tony Parker was and their great great love and Star Jones as well.

Hedi Klum is a low class gutter loud mouth who cant stop talking. I think she and Seal are 2 big idiots

I was suprised about Seal and Heidi Klum splitting up...they always seemed so happy at award shows....i guess they fooled a lot of people.....by Hollywood's standards, they were married a long time..... although i thought they made an odd looking couple.....i still wish both of them good luck anyhow......

I hoped these two were going to stay married forever. What happened? Did he cheat on her? They seemed so in love all the time. I am so surprised.

Oprah must be really shocked. I have seen them on her show, and she always refers to them as the "real deal." I also believed I as others are very surprised. I am hoping it is not true. They always seemed like the perfect couple to me. So very devoted to each other. Sad.

I see that the censors are happily deleting what America really felt about this couple. Shame on you, TMZ.

This does not come as a shock at all. Heidi always pretending like they are perfect with no problems EVER, always having that big fake smile on her face and pretending to be happy 24/7. Who would buy that in the first place?

She didn't answer the question about Lego Land or Disneyland either, so.

Heidi can go shopping for a new black guy with KK @ the NBA.

Sorry to hear that. It seems like Heidi may have done most of the work in the relationship. She is such a nice gal. She deserves someone who will treat her better

She is ruined. I wonder what human will take her, or is she going to continue to burn the coal?

Quite a bit of Seal bashing on here but consider that his own parents were not able to be there for him -- he spent time in a foster home as a kid. Then he had Lupus of the skin, which is a form of Lupus that is painful and debilitating, but he got the surgeries to remove the recurring lesions and was left with deep scars. Still after this trauma he entered a tough industry where you never know if you are going to have a paycheck.

This is not a criticism of HK, just the opposite. It is tougher, more challenging to be the spouse of a person who has had so much trauma. I'm sure Seal has PTSD issues. The allegations of "partying" getting "out of hand" suggest as much. She would have to sacrifice her time when she has peak earning power to help her spouse now, and it's a tough to balance.
