divorce is taking a turn and their children are thrust in the middle.
Although, the split between Klum and Seal seemed amicable at
first things have heated up since she filed the official divorce papers. Klum

physical custody of their four children and also said the couple had “community
and quasi assets” to divide.
A source close to the couple told Star magazine, “He’s
bitter about the break up. Of course he’s trying to get whatever he can out
this.” Klum is worth an estimated $70 million while Seal has assets totaling
The source added that Seal was a “deadbeat” dad, saying,
“He’d disappear for weeks leaving her with the kids, without telling her where
he was,” adding, “That’s one reason they’re getting divorced.”
