Apart from that, how was your weekend?
Yes, Seal and Heidi are splitting up If you're like me, all your plans for the weekend went out the window when you heard that it looked like Seal and Heidi were heading for the great town of Splitsville. And then: A glimmer of hope when it looked like it was all rumours. And then, the long hours of vigilling when you didn't know what way the winds of divorce were blowing. I know. A rollercoaster of emotions and piles on unwashed laundry. Well, we can finally relax and enter the denial period of this tragic tale, because People has this: "Heidi Klum and Seal confirm that they are splitting after almost seven years of marriage. In an exclusive statement to People, the Project Runway host and the singer say: "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 children's sake, we appreciate you respecting our privacy." The couple are parents to Leni, 7, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2. The supermodel, 38, and the Grammy winner, 48, began dating in 2003 after Klum had split from Italian racecar team manager Flavio Briatore. In December 2004, Seal proposed with a yellow diamond ring of more than 10 carats in a specially-built igloo on a 14,000-ft.-high glacier in Whistler, B.C. Klum described it as "a once-in-a-lifetime event." And TMZ has this: "Heidi Klum is divorcing Seal largely because she has had it with his volcanic temper ... TMZ has learned. Sources directly connected with the couple tell us ... Heidi's decision to divorce Seal has nothing to do with a third person. There is NO issue of infidelity. But Seal's inability to control his anger has become too much for Heidi to take, in no small part because it's affecting their children. TMZ broke the story that Heidi will divorce Seal, and we've learned this was not a snap decision. As one source said, "It was a long time in coming." We're also told ... their careers also played a part in Heidi's decision. She has become a mega-entrepreneur and extremely rich, and that professional evolution has created a distance between them."
