Heidi Klum

She Couldn't Take

Seal's Temper Anymore

1/24/2012 12:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Heidi Klum and SealHeidi Klum is divorcing Seal largely because she has had it with his volcanic temper ... TMZ has learned.

Sources directly connected with the couple tell us ... Heidi's decision to divorce Seal has nothing to do with a third person. There is NO issue of infidelity.

But Seal's inability to control his anger has become too much for Heidi to take, in no small part because it's affecting their children.

TMZ broke the story that Heidi will divorce Seal, and we've learned this was not a snap decision. As one source said, "It was a long time in coming."

We're also told ... their careers also played a part in Heidi's decision. She has become a mega-entrepreneur and extremely rich, and that professional evolution has created a distance between them.

For his part, Seal has a new album coming out and he's about to launch an international tour.

We're told Heidi and Seal are still living under the same roof, but that will change very soon.

update_bar
Heidi's rep told PEOPLE that the couple was separating, but as TMZ first reported, Heidi wants a divorce. The couple says, "We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart."

Well this is very sad, but it's an important reminder that sometimes two people can genuinely love each other and perhaps even have a 'soul mate' kind of connection (if you believe in that sort of thing), but if one or both partners isn't willing or able to resolve his/her issues, the relationship can't be. I feel deeply sympathetic for both of them.

How sad for their kids. Too bad he couldn't get help.

On a side note - has anyone noticed that Collista Gingrich looks like a witch from the side. I'd like to see her with a black wig and see if she really is a witch. I don't want that awful woman as our first lady.....yuck.

What is even more sad than the breakup of this believed fairytale marriage are the hate filled racist comments here!!!
Truly speaks to the character and ignorance of the posters here.
I feel sorry for the children and hope Heidi and Seal will keep things amicable for their sake. Who knows, maybe a separation will make Seal rethink things and he'll seek treatment for his anger issues and they'll reconcile. Good luck to both of them.

All celebs present their fake little "reality shows" to the world.It's called show biz.Most of them are neurotic and they all are paid way too much money.(i.e Kardashians,for another example.)

that's a shame, especially for the kids - maybe he can get counseling - if he really wants to make this work

OooooNooo!    

Why would a woman marry and have kids with someone who has "a volcanic temper"? Oh, that's right, she thought she could change him. Use this as a learning moment ladies: you are not going to change him -- think before you jump into a relationship and have kids with a guy who has "issues."

Black, white, green or whatever, no woman has to put up with a abuser, mental or physical. If that was the problem she has ever right to get rid of his azz.

Lets see; you can have any man in the world just about; and you pick someone that not only looks like a monster but apparently has acted like one too, for the entire marriage. Never could see what she saw in this ugly ugly dude.

I had wondered if he was abusive and with his temper perhaps he was, whether it be physically, emotionally or mentally. It's sad though; I thought theirs was a fairy-tale romance. I guess things are rarely as they seem.
