Heidi Klum

Files For Divorce

4/7/2012 5:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0406_heidi_klum_seal_divorce_documents_tmz_2
Heidi Klum has just filed for divorce from Seal ... TMZ has learned.

Heidi cites "irreconcilable differences" in her divorce petition, filed in L.A. County Superior Court.

According to the docs filed by Heidi's lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, the couple signed a post-nup -- meaning they made an agreement after they got hitched to separate their assets. As a result, sources say there is no community property to be divided.

Heidi is asking for joint legal custody of their 4 kids, but she wants primary physical custody ... with Seal getting visitation rights.

Heidi is asking the judge to restore her maiden name -- that would be Klum, although she always used it professionally.

Heidi, who is worth a fortune, is asking the judge to reject any claim for spousal support by either her or Seal. And she wants Seal to pay his lawyer's fees. She'd gladly pay Wasser herself.

People are so rude!! If this had been a guy model and a female partner people would be saying different things. For the record, I find Seal very handsome. He may have some scars or something on his face, but he is beautiful anyway. Beauty is not skin deep. I wish them the best but lets not be so cruel to a human being.

I think they married for love, but that his temper finally got in the way. I don't get the "she's too beautiful to fall for him" thing. A pretty woman falls in love just the same way as anyone else. Sometimes to a handsome man, sometimes not. Besides, there is nothing wrong with his looks just because he has scars. I hope for the best for both of them, and especially for the children.

Judging from the majority of these comments, most of you "LOSERS" are certainly "REJECTS" in which "NO ONE" would even accept "MONEY" to spend time with you. LOVE ISN'T ABOUT LOOKS -- IT'S ABOUT CHEMISTRY, COMPROMISE, COMMITMENT AND UNDERSTANDING. This couple may have started out with plenty of "chemistry" and not much more than that which is "WHY" they are divorcing. At the end of the day, we're all people, regardless of our status in the world and those who make a living in the "public arena" have a much more difficult time with relationships due to their rather public personas. It's never easy for two high profile people to get along especially when one person's career isn't really doing that well. Egos become easily bruised and all hell breaks loose. Heidi Klum did what she had to do and I can imagine filing for divorce wasn't easy for her. Soon both she and Seal will be free to pursue new relationships with more compatiable people. I wish them both nothing but the best. They seemed like a very "INTERESTING", "FUN LOVING" couple to say the least.

I am delighted this dopey Klum's marriage to this black guy ended in flames. How many years did we all have to pot up with her bragging flapping lips about what a hot lover Seal was and how so in love they were with each other. I always thought it was a big lie because of her constant yapping about her great love life, Leno, Letterman, Conan, Kimmel you could not escape her bragging about her great love life.

And now this air head has egg on her face and looks like a total azzhole trying to get ALL 4 kids for herself and making Seal visit them. I cant stand this f*c*in B*tch and happy her experience with her black man was a disaster.

Hopefully God will zap her and turn her into an old bag Brigitte Bardot wrinkly sag face!

It must have been a frightening moment that morning when she woke up, looked over, and began screaming, because she had been sleeping with one of the ugliest black men on earth!

The good thing that will come from this divorce is the restoration of her maiden name. So much better.
