Heidi Klum And Seal's Split Reportedly Caused By Explosive Fights

Immediately after news first broke that Seal and Heidi Klum were separating, many of the couple’s friends spoke to various outlets to deny the split. Pretty much all acknowledged there were occasional problems, but few seemed to think the issues were serious enough to end in divorce court. Now a full day has passed since the pair acknowledged it was over, and more specific information is starting to come out.

According to TMZ, it was the singer’s anger more than anything else that pushed his wife toward demanding the split. The couple’s relationship seems to have been filled with mostly good times. Klum’s good friend described the two to People as “the couple everyone loves”, but apparently, that rosy exterior masked the fact that when the couple fought they really had it out. Rumor has it those escalating disagreements started happening a bit more frequently lately, and since the arguments occasionally happened in front of the kids, Heidi felt a change needed to happen. At least that’s the scuttlebutt going around, but there’s no mention of that hostility in the joint statement they released yesterday. Here’s a look…

"While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate. We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart. This is an amicable process and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition. We thank our family, friends, and fans for their kind words of support. And for our children¹s sake, we appreciate you respecting our privacy."

That’s a classy statement, and it’s one that needed to be made. Regardless of what was really going on, there’s no point in adding fuel to the fire and no reason to give the children too many details. It’s best for all involved if Seal and Heidi remain on good times and continue to operate as a team in raising their four kids. Pop Blend wishes them nothing but the best in doing so.
