Heidi Klum

Files For Divorce

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.

Wow...Such a mean spirit here. We do not know their lives. Perhaps like many they just do not see a future together. They are both beautiful in my eyes and deserve respect and privacy.

i am always surprised when people from different cultures/races marry...what is a commonality in a long term? to me culture is a commonality...what will you talk about? finances, business, assets, restaurants? that is not binding glue in your relationship...culture is a glue...or one has to forgo his/her culture and totally submit to the other one...and the older you grow the more you understand this...

When she met him she had just been dumped by her baby-daddy-a famous Italian race car driver.
Supermodels are only as good as the men they hook up with- Heidi was at risk of being irrelevant and Seal was a huge musical success. She totally milked their unlikely romance.
She is shameless in her desire to be in the public eye and worked that to death. Now she has her own "fame" (gag) so she doesn't want this man telling her she can't be a whore anymore.
She is a nightmare of insecurity- Seal will find a woman who wants more from him than a photo op and to appear as though she has an adoring husband. Kids? The nanny will watch them while she finds another worthy dude.

After reading several disgusting racist comments, I have to say this in defense of you Seal...Welp,I'm assuming your novelty has worn off after you rescued "Becky" from being a "single, pregnant, un-wed mom" after billionaire Flavio dumped her while she was pregnant with her first child. Oh well you should have known better than trying to be a "Knight in Shining Armor", Im sure one of her own kind wouldn't have! Lol

So ultimately this implies she never really loved him from the start. If one is so adamant that the very person you claim to love, honor and cherish before you marry (in their case after they married) shouldn't receive a dime in the event of a divorce that is telling that you truly don't love that individual.

It's wonderful to read about a divorce between two people that are loving and intelligent enough to divide their assets fairly and not involve their children in a media frenzied and emotionally heated battle. It appears there isn't any greed involved or trying to "stick it" to the other spouse. More couples needs this type of amible mentality for the sake of their children.

Just goes to show that you can get remarried numerous times & it doesn't mean a thing. If the first time you say I do doesn't mean anything, then why continue with 6/7/8 times more.

His face looks like one of the topographical maps. He should dress up for Halloween as a mountain range.

As for Heidi, take away the money and we are left with loser euro-trash. Seal, way to go screwing a white model.
