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.

What! They always seemed so happy - this is sad. Hope they tried to work it out and didn't just take the easy way out and throw it all away soon as there was trouble.

HA, I ALWAYS KNEW SOME SH*T WAS GOIN ON. RECALL SEVERAL TIMES IN THE PAST WHEN PAP CAMERAS WERE ROLLING AND SEAL DIDNT KNOW... BASICALLY CAUGHT THE DUDE YELLING AND ACTING A CONTROL FREAK AGAINST HEIDI. THAT WAS LIKE 2-3 YRS AGO. I KNEW THEN THIS MARRIAGE IS A SHAM AND COVER UP. #TRUTH!!

This is a shocker.... They are always renewing their vows and looked like they were having so much fun together. hhmmm... maybe infidelity involved?

Next time roll with a Black woman Seal. This kind of thing rarely works out long-term... Not enough connection, not enough in common. Sorry for the kids...

I feel sorry for the kids. I knew something was odd when they said they renewed their vows every year. Seemed they liked idea of a wedding more than the idea of being married.
