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.

She's too much of a diva and it's probably pissing her off that he's not as rich and famous as he used to be.

At first it seemed like a sweet love story; he married her while she was prego with another man's baby and raised it as his own(not many men would do!), but then later I noticed she had black eyes she tried to cover with sunglasses and I remember wondering if maybe he beat her up (esp. after his scuffle with photogs) and wonder again if maybe I was right...

Good riddance!    

I saw Seal years ago at a relatively intimate venue. Mostly just him on stage with a guitar. He is REALLY talented! I even talked to him for a minute or so after the show and he seemed like a really nice guy. Oh well, good luck to them both. I'll miss their Halloween adventures.

I'm always suspect when couples, celebrity and non-celebrities show boat their love ; their renewing of their vows seemed so phony and all about publicity. I remember on Oprah hearing Heidi say 'we do this every year to show our love'..well, at that time they'd been married two years. I was hoping I was wrong and those 'vow renewals ' meant something besides for show.

Ok, who cheated on who?

The ones who always get hurt the most.....the kids.
The ones who get the most....the lawyers.

"One day you're in, the next day, you're out" (said in snappy little tone like Heidi says it)

Did Heidi just eliminate Seal from her own runway?

I would have thought these two would have put more effort into keeping their marriage. They always seemed like such a strong couple. I'm as shocked as others at reading this news. I hope the source is full of it. I've never read anything that even indicated they had any problems. Hope they tried to work things out and didn't just throw in the towel. Their poor children. :(
