Seal Split Interview

Seal admits he didn’t want to be ‘living a lie’ with Heidi!

In a new interview with Access Hollywood, Seal revealed the reason behind his split with Heidi Klum — their kids Leni, 7, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2! “We’re not going to live a lie because of our children,” he said. “The priority is my wife and our children, and I put that before anything else. Everything else will take care of itself.”

Seal says that he and Heidi did not want to make it work solely for the kids. “You hear couples say ‘We stay together because of the kids,'” he said. “I don’t know how healthy that is kids are smarter than the think. They are more intuitive, and if there is any disconnect, they pick up on it.”

And he revealed that the kids are aware of the split: “We talked with them and we tried to explain best we could what’s going on. We spend time explaining to them that things will be different, but a lot of things won’t change.”

Although he said a reconciliation might be possible, that’s not the focus right now. “The main thing is to make sure that they are loved and make sure they understand that their parents love each other,” he explained. “If anything changes, it has nothing to do with them. It may even improve the amount of time we spend with them — the quality time. How present you are when you are with your kids.”

Do YOU think Heidi and Seal should separate?
