Seal has filed counter papers for divorce from Heidi Klum, it has emerged.
Earlier this week, it was announced that Klum had submitted documentation to the Los Angeles Superior Court in order to legally confirm the couple's separation - which was first made public in January - on the grounds of irreconcilable differences.
However, according to Access Hollywood, the British singer has now countered the supermodel's claim for sole custody of their four children by requesting joint custody in divorce papers of his own.
Previously, Seal - who is famous for songs such as Kiss From a Rose - had admitted in interviews that he would like to get back together with Klum, but it appears the possibility of a resolution to their problems is now over.
In a joint statement issued earlier this year, the pair - who have agreed post-nuptial terms - said they had decided to split up amicably after "much soul-searching".
