Seal

Files Divorce Response

Assets Bone of Contention

Seal has filed his response to Heidi Klum's divorce petition, and it looks like he's gearing up for a dispute over who gets what in the divorce.

TMZ already reported that Heidi claims there is a postnuptial agreement, which means there are no joint or community assets. But in Seal's papers, he claims there are "community and quasi-community assets" and he makes no mention of the postnup.

As for how much is on the line ... the answer is, a lot. Heidi is worth an estimated $70 million. Seal is reportedly worth around $15 million.

Seal is also asking for joint physical custody of their 4 kids -- Heidi wants primary physical custody, with Seal getting visitation.

Fact is ... based on photos and videos, Heidi has almost always had the kids when Seal was away, and given that he's away a lot on tour, giving her primary physical custody is pretty much status quo.

Seal wants the judge to deny spousal support to Heidi. For her part, she wants to deny spousal support to Seal. The reality ... they both make a lot of money and won't be getting support.

And, as for the date of separation, Seal is non-committal. He says it has not been determined. Heidi claims the date of separation was January 19, 2012.

Please make sure your comments about this nasty divorce are as heterophobic as all the anti-gay posts on Melissa and Tammy.

He is on the road a lot??? I'm going to go out on a limb that she is away from home a little more often TMZ. I don't think custody is decided by photographs from one of your boys hiding in a tree.

While I'm not fan of Seal, please refrain from making nasty comments about his appearance. He has Lupus and it has affected his face. Also, do to his Lupus, he can't have any chemicals or microdermabrasion to improve his appearance.

funny he is asking for joint custody of their 4 kids after her said repeatedly on Piers Morgan that he had 3 kids. I guess he is claiming Leni for the money now.

It doesn't matter who took the kids to their karate lessons more often. All that stuff is irrelevant now. First of all, Cali law requires that they go to mediation prior to having a hearing on custody. Secondly, physical custody basically starts as a 50/50 proposition and then works backwards depending upon what is in the best interests of the child.

Prenup.So he cant have anything that wasnt part of that. And he is also looking for spousal support? damn I just love it when they do that and are working with a bank account of 15million or more.

For me, Seal is not ugly because of his scarring or lupus, but from his constant bullying expression and temper tantrums.
