Heidi Klum & Seal: The Real Reason They're On The Rocks

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.

Bullcrap effort on the marriage. Nobody wants a family and a partner for life anymore. You grew apart? Try harder to be together and don’t bail cause you’re alone or bored. Don’t take off on your kids for weeks at a time. Jesus – so selfish. All for records, tv and money – money that they don’t even need. Way to prioritize!! Congrats!

I am a bit shocked they’re divorcing but in retrospect PDA is almost always overcompensation for hidden issues. Couples who travel and our apart for long periods stay together all the time. You just have to be very careful that you’re with the right person is all.

The article quotes someone saying you can’t be apart that much in a marriage….

Um, sure you can. Lots of military couples, including myself, go months and months apart…often without contact.

Off to email my husband, who I still adore after 12 years of marriage, who has been gone almost six months on his fifth deployment.

When there isnt real love between two, long distance has an adverse affect. These two loved each other, but more it seems as great friends who tried to make an intimate love connection. Long distance does cause one to wander when there’s not that commitment love happening.
For the sake of the children they sould divorce. Theresnothing worse as a child in watching your parents mentally seperating frm one another over time because of various issues. I wish my parents and many would’ve ended it sooner. Why drag the kids through two peoples pain.

I think that Seal was overly infatuated with Klum. According to the media, they dated for a while and went their separate ways. When they reconnected, she was carrying another man’s child. Immediately, after the italian dumped her, she fell back into the arms of Seal. Afterwards, she got knocked up very quickly by him, and they got married.

It appears that he allowed himself to get suckered in. And now, that the petals have fallen from his eyes he see’s the relationship for what it is. Supermodel or not, she was a beautiful castoff that got dumped by her rich suitor and did not want to look like a has been. So, she seizes the opportunity to make herself legal by lassoing Seal. My, what a kiss from a rose will do!

I doubt seriously that this is a marriage that can be saved, even if is for the sake of the children. I believe that both parties overcompensated for the weakness in their marriage with all of these over-the-top staged events. Of the two adults, Seal has probably suffered the most because he has had to endure ridicule for his looks, and why this so-called beautiful woman chose him, when in reality, he saved her from being unwed and unwanted.

It never pays to gush about a man as much as Heidi did about Seal.When a woman shows too much appreciation to a man,The man will begin to believe he is too good for the woman, And gets very cocky towards her.I`ve seen film clips of Seal snapping at Heidi and the first thing I thought was,She`s paying for the God complex she`s given him, And soon she`ll realize that and get tired of being treated like crap.It`s happened to me and a few other women I know of,But I`ve never seen a man idolize a woman and constantly brag on her like Heidi did with Seal.

I find it interesting,confusing when couples split up because they’re spending too much time apart.Well wouldn’t the solution to that be spend more together? Not divorce?

Obviously they are blaming their problems on ” too much time apart “. Which is fine but that’s definitely not the real reason. They said they ” grew apart ” and I believe that’s probably what it is.

Im praying for these to. They make a good couple and i hate to see them split becauseof their jobs. Thats just saying one is going to have to compromise something. Its all in their hands. Yes people drift apart from long distance relationship. But remember them vows they took. For better or worst for richer or poor. In sickeness and health. Think about them words. Dont give up cause yall have so much time apart. It should make ur love stronger and make u appreciate one another. He is on tours providing for u and ur family. Family! Nothing else. Think about that before yall go heading in divorce court. Its not gone solve nothing. Pray about it and ask god to help u all. I love both of yall a real true fan. Just pray bout it. Dont give up. Please dont.

The “too much time apart” is a cover for something else. They have some control of their schedules and the money to fly and see each other. Our country has been at war for almost 9 years and there are many soldiers that have been gone for 4-5 years on and off–their marriages survive.

Wow, sad. Poor kids. I think that’s a stupid reason to divorce. You divorce when you fall out of love, not because you spend too much time apart. That can be worked out if one of them is willing to compromise. Or both of them. But being celebs, they don’t have to, so, there it is.

Four kids add a lot of stress and humdrum to a marriage. Both Heidi and Seal are used to living lives of high excitment, glamour, and novelty. Heidi is used to being a sex symbol and in the spotlight, and romance and male interest often dampens after the kids arrive. It will not surprise me at all if you see him soon photographed with a new woman….a fresh, new, exciting love to get a dopamine rush. These celebs are so accustomed to life being on a constant high. She may also be relieved to go back to the freedom and excitement of life before marriage and kids.

Marriage is tough. Kids are even tougher.

this is the dumbest reason in the world. my parents have been apart for over a year. my dad was working abroad. You’re saying my mom should’ve divorced him? What are military wives supposed to do? Divorce their husbands three months after their deployment?
Heidi should have visited with the kids. They have so many holidays in school (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter etc…).
Heidi and Seal have enough money to go and visit each other (or in this case Heidi to visit Seal) when they are working outside their living town!!

I agree wholeheartedly! There is more to this than meets the eye. It’s a pathetic excuse and they should pull it together for themselves and their children, unless of course they no longer love each other.

I truly respect and admire this celebrity couple cause their relationship was true and they were truly in love and I hope they seek counseling before they end such a great relationship they had.

For Ed Brown –

It is a good job people such as Heidi are not as ignorant as you. Ugly doesn’t come into it. She obviously married him in the first place because she loved him, for him not his looks. Honestly, some people say/write some totally disgusting things. Are you an adult?

I agree. Be liberal all you want but interracial marriages are not easy. She is so beautiful, could find a good looking white man. She openly admitted she went for him because of his *package*. That’s disgusting and no reason for a marriage! Go ahead an attack me for the truth. I could care less.
