The pair married in 2005 and have four children. They released the following statement to People regarding the split:
While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate.
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. This is an amicable process and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition.
We thank our family, friends, and fans for their kind words of support. And for our children’s sake, we appreciate you respecting our privacy.
TMZ still believes Heidi wants to divorce due to Seal’s “volcanic temper”, but for now the couple is just separating. There have been no reports of infidelity.
