I’ll sum it up for you in two words: ‘Soul 2.’
Seal and Heidi Klum announced their separation and then Seal went on an album tour to promote his new record, ‘Soul 2.’ And during that tour he opened up a lot about his impending divorce from Heidi Klum. Meanwhile, she hasn’t said anything.
Now, the singer is opening up about why he opened up.
"When you publicize your marriage as much as our marriage was publicized, when you renew wedding vows, when you do all those things, what you are saying to people is ... you're giving people a picture of an ideal relationship that people aspire to," the singer said on the Fifi and Jules radio show in Australia, where he's working on that country's version of The Voice and performing his ‘Soul 2’ tour.
He also says he felt obligated to talk about it.
"When it goes south, you can't all of a sudden take the philosophy of a monk and decide to go for a vow of silence. It doesn’t really work like that," he said. "I respect my wife's decision not to talk about that, but I felt that people at least deserved some kind of explanation why the picture of the ideal wasn't what they thought it was."
As far as the timing of his album goes, Seal says it was purely coincidental.
"It's not like this [split] happened and I decided the next week to go on the show," Seal said.
