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.

So.Is this unexpected. None of these narcissistic "stars" can stay married long if they don't get the attention they constantly need. Sorry for the children.

Sincerity    

SHOOT!!! I really liked this couple but alas, "ALL THAT GLITTERS ISN'T GOLD"!!! I suspect that when Seal's music career couldn't keep up with Heidi's "high profile" promotional ventures, their egos started to clash. Heidi was probably much more comfortable with the "paps" than Seal which just added more stress to the "uncomfortable" dynamics of an inter-racial marriage. The institution of marriage under "normal" cir***stances is tough enough but celebrity marriages aren't afforded the same level of "PRIVACY" that most couples take for granted. Hopefully, their divorce will be "amicable" and they'll continue to "lovingly" co-parent their children.

ah sad for the children .... and all these comments about how she deserves better because she's gorgeous? seriously? She is dumb as a box of Hair (anyone watch her on Project Runway?). She is lucky to have Seal as her house husband. Stay with Seal Heidi, he's in a very small minority of men who will actually be good to you.

There is so much hate here... Seriously, some of you really need to grow up. People of all races (mixed or same) split up all the time. I think Heidi must have a really good reason for calling it quits. She seemed very devoted to their love; taking on his last name, him adopting her 1st born daughter... This can't have been done on a whim. My heart does go out to the Kids though! Now they will be raised by nannies full time!:(

i'm not really surprised. he has done his job and now it's time to let him down. the marriage helped her to become a celeb across the borders of germany. we germans shared her joy as she was sympathic and natural 10 years ago but she changed into a moneygrubbing, craving for recognition person.
