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.

You never saw one without the other. What could've possibly happened between weddings? They have a lavish wedding every year. WTF?! I'm usually skeptical about couples who feel the need to renew their vows and have a blowout showcase to prove to everyone that they're indeed happy. In their case, I believed the love. Although excessive, they could afford to throw that annual party. With that said, have you ever seen Bridezillas? Imagine being a Bridezilla every day of the year! I mean, even though I'm sure she has a wedding coordinator every year, those things don't come together overnight. And, she always tried to out-do the previous year. They have four beautiful children. I'm so curious to know why they're calling it quits. They were a HOT couple.

This is what happens when you marry a guy for the size of his jank - ask Shanna Moakler.

So was there vow renewal in 2011 a publicity stunt? Seems like it...maybe to throw off the rumors

to all of you saying that they always seemed like an "odd" couple, what do you mean? They're the opposite of odd. It's common that a rock star marries model. Just admit what you're really saying.

Here we go again. Lately, the media is constantly shoving the interracial couple baloney down our throats. Dont believe the propaganda. Bad idea kids. Remember, there are piss poor decisions you can make that will last you a lifetime.
