Seal and Heidi Klum Divorce

HollywoodLife.com spoke with an insider close to the couple who told us the real reason the beautiful supermodel / TV star and musician are on the outs is that distance has driven a wedge between the pair.

Even though we thought they had one of the strongest marriages in Hollywood, Heidi Klum and Seal are struggling to keep their relationship alive mostly because they’ve been forced apart by distance due to competing work commitments, a source close to the couple tells HollywoodLife.com.

“They are going through a rough patch 100%,” the insider confirms. “They are trying to work it out and figure it out, but they’ve grown apart in the last year.”

Seal, 48, has been on the road touring an enormous amount the past year, leaving Heidi, 38, alone with their four young children. Unfortunately, there’s no end in site to the traveling, as he’s about to leave to go to Australia to tour through February and be a judge on The Voice.

“He’s been on the road for a long time,” our source explains. “You can’t be apart this much when you have a marriage. It takes a toll.” In the past year he has also toured in South America, Asia and Europe, among other places in 2011.

Adds the friend, “Heidi has four kids to think about, so whatever decision they make, it’s going to be very serious.”

Do you think Heidi and Seal will be able to make it work, or are they done for good? We at Hollywoodlife.com sure hope that they can work out their problems and not jump into a divorce. Marriage definitely has its’ big challenges but these two are both great people and serious people. We hope that for the sake of the love they’ve had and for their children, that they decide to stay together.
