On Saturday, gossip website TMZ broke the story that supermodel Heidi Klum would file for divorce from singer Seal. 24 hours later, the couple released a statement to the Associated Press announcing their intention to separate.
The announcement was conveniently timed to coincide with the U.S. release of Seal's album of 70s Soul classics remakes, Soul 2, which drops tomorrow (Jan. 24).
This "separation" has all the earmarks of a well-orchestrated publicity stunt. Complete with a convenient leak to a popular gossip website. Sources "directly connected" with Heidi tell TMZ that the couple are separating due to Seal's temper -- not because of a third party. Of course narcissists wouldn't dare cheat on each other, right?
Furthermore, the source tells TMZ that Heidi has become "a mega-entrepreneur and extremely rich", which doesn't sit well with Seal. Oh, and did I mention that they still live together under the same roof?
We're not surprised that Heidi Klum and Seal plays the media like a fiddle. They are typical fame whores who have spent their entire marriage in the public eye. Heidi and Seal renew their marriage vows with great fanfare every year, and their grandiose annual Halloween bash is the hottest ticket in town -- for the tabloids.
We know everything there is to know about them and their 5 children (including Heidi's daughter from a previous relationship). And they never miss a chance to slob each other down for the cameras.
The couple says, "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."
We don't believe you.
