German supermodel Heidi Klum has finally taken the step of legally filing for divorce from singer Seal.
Heidi Klum cites “irreconcilable differences” in her divorce petition, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, according to TMZ.
According to the documents filed by Heidi Klum’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, the couple signed a post-nuptial agreement.
This means they made an agreement after they got married to keep their assets completely separate.
And so there is no community property to be divided, according to sources.
Heidi Klum is asking for joint legal custody of their four children, but she wants primary physical custody.
The supermodel is also asking the judge to restore her maiden name that would be Klum, although she always used it professionally.
Heidi Klum, who is the wealthier of the pair, is asking the judge to reject any claim for spousal support from Seal, and not making such demands herself.
And she also makes it clear that she wants Seal to pay his own lawyer’s fees.
Heidi Klum parted ways from Seal after almost seven years of marriage.
They have four children, Leni, 7, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and two-year-old Lou, together.
Following the split, Seal admitted he was keen to continue to wear his wedding ring as a “token” of how he feels about Heidi Klum and he had “no intention” of removing the band anytime soon.
Seal recently said: “I think it’s just pretty much a token of how I feel about this woman. We have eight years. Eight wonderful years together.
“Just because we have decided to separate doesn’t necessarily mean you take off your ring and you’re no longer connected to that person.
“Will we wear the ring for the rest of our lives? Who knows? But right now it feels really comfortable on my hand so I have intentions of taking it off anytime soon.”
