Heidi Klum files for divorce from Seal
Heidi Klum has officially filed for divorce from Seal after the couple announced their separation earlier this year.
The supermodel has submitted papers to the Los Angeles County Superior Court in order to end her seven-year marriage with the British singer, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the primary reason behind their break-up.
Klum and Seal - who have four children together - released a joint statement in January indicating they were going to end their relationship amicably following "much soul-searching".
"The well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition," the pair noted.
And it emerged yesterday (April 9th) that Klum has now filed for a decree nisi, while it has also been revealed that the couple have signed a post-nuptial agreement to ensure their joint assets are divided properly.
In addition, the papers indicated that Klum is seeking primary physical custody of the couple's children.
