They released a long statement to People magazine about the split saying:
"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."
That’s a pretty long statement in regards to celeb splits. We usually get the ‘We’re splitting, please respect our privacy’ type of comments, but it looks like Heidi and Seal felt they needed to explain the situation.
They’ve been so verbal about how much they love each other and how great their relationship is, so this split seemed like it came out of nowhere. Stay tuned for more details!
