Just when we think we've been as shocked as we can be by "perfect couple" Hollywood break-ups, I must admit that this one did indeed shock me.
However, according to TMZ (and let's face it, if TMZ says it, it must be so), super-model and host of mega-hit "Project Runway," Heidi Klum is divorcing musical artist, Seal, after seven years of marriage.
Why so surprised? The couple, who have four children ranging in age from 2 to 7, have always held themselves out as being crazily in love. In fact, Heidi appeared just a few weeks ago on Anderson Cooper's new talk show blushingly telling their love story and how very much in love they still were.
It was the kind of story that makes the rest of us think, "Gee, why can't I have that?" But as we are again reminded, no one knows what goes on behind closed doors and neither money, beauty or fame buys happiness.
Apparently, Heidi has had it with Seal's temper. Although there are reports of infidelity, "sources" say infidelity is not a factor. You know "sources" are never wrong. A far cry from a perfect marriage. One source close to the couple said it was a "long time coming."
Heidi, 38, and Seal, 48, said:
"While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate."
The couple, who renewed their wedding vows every year since they married in May of 2005, explained that while they will continue to have "the deepest respect for one another" they have ultimately "grown apart."
All sarcasm aside, and we do not think anything about the break up of a family is funny, we hope that the divorce is as amicable as the couple have stated:
With four small children in the mix, we wish the couple the very best as they navigate the tough waters of divorce , which is never easy and must be especially more trying while doing so in the public eye.
