Even as Seal insists to Piers Morgan, Tavis Smiley and Ellen DeGeneres that he and Heidi Klum still love and respect each other, despite their separation, the gossip world is doing its darndest to dig up dirt on why the super couple is splitting. We’re kind of getting whiplash from this whole thing — do they still have a chance at a reunion, or has divorce been a long time coming? Draw your own conclusions based on these stories:
- TMZ still maintains that Seal’s “volcanic” temper is the cause of their problems. Talk about a blow to our image of the man who just sang Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” on Ellen.
- Some sources told People that the couple’s trip to Aspen over the holidays marked “the final straw” of their relationship. “Aspen didn’t go as well as planned … there were more lows than highs.” At the same time, paparazzi in the ski town were just as blissfully unaware as the rest of us: “They couldn’t stop kissing and cuddling. They spent a lot of time with their kids, but also managed to sneak in several solo ski runs together. If they were having problems, they were definitely not showing during the day.”
- Heidi spent two weeks shopping for divorce lawyers in Los Angeles, according to TMZ.
- Still, Seal doesn’t seem to be giving up on them quite yet. In his interview with Piers Morgan on CNN, he said, “Is it irreperable? You can never say never,” and talked on and on about how well they worked as a team. “I’m not going to sit here and BS you and tell you we’ve never had problems. Of course we have had problems, otherwise why are we splitting up?” he added. And when asked again if he wanted them to get back together, he hedged, I don’t know at this point. I think if it were that easy, if there weren’t problems, we would still be together.”
So, is Seal being realistic? Is he stringing us along to promote his Soul 2 album, out next week? Tell us what you think!
