Seal is already speaking out about the breaking up of his marriage to Heidi Klum, telling Tavis Smiley it will be handled civilly for the benefit of their kids.

Tavis asked Seal how he and Heidi can avoid the ugly break-up that has become prevalent among celebs, and he said, "We're just not those kind of people." 

Seal said, "What one has to do in this situation is to remain civil, to retain one's dignity, to be professional, and to understand that we are not the only people on this planet that are going through this."

Seal's conversation with Tavis Smiley on PBS airs this Friday, January 27 on PBS.

Oh Please, Seal, don't bullshift me. If you were not "those kind of people", you would honour your marriage vows and work it out, until the last child is out on their own. That's when you have the freedom to be free of the marriage, and anything less than that is just another broken promise that hurts another child of divorce, and makes you exactly like "those kind of people".

It's not too late. Do right by your children and their family unit.

African American men who marry white women, and divorce, usually have no problems.

I'm guessing Seal tried anger management before it came to this or at least I hope he did. Think its sad for the children and hope they can maintain civility for the sake of the children. As for as his scars I think it's mean to say negative things about him because of his scars. We don't know what happened to cause them and I'm sure he didn't do something to cause them purposely to himself. I give him credit to becoming an accomplished singer despite his scars. I think of JR who won DWTS and the adversity he overcame with his scars. What does it matter to us as long as Heidi found something in him besides looks. I'm sure Seal won't have a problem finding another beautiful woman to love him and look beyond his scars. Hope if it is true about his anger issues he will get help now that he realizes he has lost his family.

Everyone seems to forget that when they hooked up, Heidi was pregnant, having been dumped by her ex who was also denying paternity. Seal stepped in and adopted the child. Heidi also went on and on about how she was attracted to Seal because of his "package." Hmmm...sounds to me that Heidi isn't little miss innocent as you all claim. And Seal definitely came to her rescue. All of Seal's exes continue to rave about his character as well. None ever have spoken ill of him. I am betting he is a very nice guy, and they grew apart. Now Heidi is divorced with 4 kids, 3 of whom are black. Not many white men will handle that...at least not in the US. Heidi will move on with either another person of color or a European.

As soon as he sees her photographed with another guy, he could become 'those kind of people".
