Heidi Klum to

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 think they should have not been so selfish as to have so many children in such a short space of time, if their relationship was not good......typical hollywood!

What does anyone expect from all these celebrities marriages, except divorces. That is the trade mark. A tiny fraction stick together much longer with full respect/commitment to their marriage vows.

Honestly yes they "appeared" in love. How they went on almost ALL red carpets together,did photoshoots together,talked about their private lives too much in interviews etc...Couples that are that open in Hollywood never seem to last, if they were more private I would have been more surprised.

The adopted child is from former Formula 1 Benetton Teamchef Flavio Briatore (remember the old fat guy wearing his girlfriend's tanga on his yacht? ^^)

Not buying it    

Not really surprised if it is true. SHE always worked too hard to convince the public they were this wonder lovey dovey couple. Same with all the other stars breaking up, one day they are proclaiming their undying love and the next day they are filing. Now she needs to start acting her age and stop with the mini mini dresses and skirts. Always made me laugh the she would be sitting on Project Runway criticizing contestants on their designs while she was wearing a skirt that she didn't dare uncross her legs. Notice they NEVER showed her getting out of the chair to give the mwah mwah air kisses?

What, say it ain't so? They've been such a cute couple from the start! I hope this isn't true and they can work on it, instead of it ending this way!
