Heidi Klum & Seal's Post-Divorce Custody Battle Heats Up

The separated couple is struggling with their divorce -- and the kids are caught in the middle! Heidi Klum and Seal parted ways amicably after they announced their split, but things recently became bitter after Heidi filed for divorce on April 6. She claims they had a postnuptial agreement, which means no joint community assets will be split. It only took Seal four days to fire back saying in a divorce petition that there are "community and quasi community assets," as well as firing back about the custody agreement Heidi arranged!

“He’s bitter about the break-up,” an insider tells Star magazine. “Of course he’s trying to get whatever he can out of this.”

Heidi, 38, is worth an estimated $70 million and Seal is worth just about $15 million — that’s quite the difference!

What was most shocking about his divorce petition was the 49-year-old singer requested joint legal custody of the Leni, 7, Henry, 6, Johan, 5 and two-year-old Lou. Heidi wants primary physical custody of their brood, while the father is allowed visitation rights.

“He’d disappear for weeks and leave her with the kids, without telling her where he was,” the insider adds. “That’s one reason they’re getting divorced.”

The insider insists Seal is a “deadbeat dad!”

Let’s hope Heidi & Seal can solve their issues without dragging the kids in the middle!

HollywoodLifers, who do YOU think should get custody of the children?
