Heidi Klum -- I've Moved On from Seal

Heidi Klum is now speaking out in this latest battle between herself and Seal, stating the obvious ... the pair have moved on.

Following Seal's comments about "fornicating with the help" -- and his subsequent backtracking -- Heidi released a statement today saying, "I cherish all of the great memories Seal and I created together over the years. Our separation was based on issues between the two of us. Seal has moved on and so have I."

She continued, "My priority has and continues to be protecting and providing for our children."

As TMZ first reported, the divorce proceedings have been rocky ... with Seal going after a huge chunk of Heidi's $70 million fortune.
