On the surface, it seems like all is well between estranged Heidi and Seal. But a fierce custody battle is about to being soon!

Heidi Klum and Seal seemed to have parted ways amicably, but now a new report from Star magazine says that’s all about to end! “The original agreement was that Heidi would have primary custody and Seal could visit at any time,” a source says. “But since the breakup was announced [on Jan. 22], Heidi has been looking to pack up their home in Brentwood and go back to New York.”

Seal plans to stay in California, and Heidi hopes going to New York will keep their four kids — Henry, 6, Johan, 5, Lou, 2, and Leni, 7 — will keep them at a distance from him. “She believes his lifestyle and criminal issues don’t provide a ‘conducive environment’ for their kids,” the source explains.

Seal’s violent history — the source says he pushed Heidi and had an raging temper — has Heidi concerned for the kids. And she was shocked to learn of his sordid past — he allegedly had multiple run-ins with the law, including drug trafficking and promoting prostitution.

“Heidi had no idea,” the source says. “She’s dumbfounded that Seal led a double life. Things are going to get nasty between them.”

Do YOU think Heidi should move to New York? Or should she stay in California so the kids can be around Seal?
