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.

Not married 10 years, Heidi will win on child support. But check this out. Those angry dads are getting former felons on state panels against child support.

There's something about these couples that feel the need to renew their vows every year. It never seems to work. Vow renewals should be reserved for milestone anniversaries, like 25 to 50 years to celebrate the longevity of the union. Not to have a party. Just have a party for your anniversary if you need the attention. All her talk about how sexy their marriage was is also a sign she was trying to reaffirm the relationship. Who knows what goes on behind closed doors.

Why is anyone surprised? She needs to keep hanging out with kim k-trash. She can help hook her back up with her type. Did anyone else see the nude pics of Heidi nude?...Looks awful.

In celebrity world, they trade one another in after a few years. Like a Birkin bag, it no longer is in style, they want the newest latest and greatest one.

They discard one another like a piece of designer clothing that is no longer trending.

Immoral and sad.

One can only speculate. Doesn't he tour a lot? He doesn't seem as involved with the kids as her. He's quite a bit older. I think he has a temper too. All these things add up. Too bad they produced all these children though for such a short marriage. It's like they were pretend playing with their vow renewal and Hallowe'en parties, etc.

This is sad! I really liked the couple. Anyone who could celebrate Halloween the way they did should be happy together.

I always thought the her constant mention of their "perfect" life and renewing their vows was a bit much...reminds of Shakespeares's quote from Hamlet "The lady doth protest too much me thinks" -- usually people who overdo it like she did are hiding something.

That is a damn shame. Why can't celebrity couples stay together or is it just a larger reflection of society?
