Seal may have just had a very public split from his wife, Heidi Klum, but don't expect to see him without his ring anytime soon.
The singer, who's been making the media rounds for his new album and talking plenty about Klum, tells Piers Morgan in an interview airing Friday that this isn't about publicity.
"There was some malicious thing that 'Oh, he's still wearing his wedding ring, he's doing it for show, or whatever,'" Seal says of the chatter. "I'm still wearing this wedding ring because I'm still married to this incredible woman.You don't all of a sudden from one day to the next, unless you're those types of people, just all of a sudden say, 'Oh I hate you' and take off your wedding ring."
His ring, he continues, "stands for respect, it stands for loyalty, it stands for incredible memories, and it stands for these four little miracles [his children with Klum], and Heidi making five, that have come into my life over the past eight years."
In spite of their split, "my love for her has not waned one iota," the singer tells Morgan. "I love her with all my heart. How can you not love somebody that you have just spent eight years with?"
Even with all of that said, Seal is unsure if he and Klum will be able to make their relationship work.
"I don't know, at this point, [if I want to get back together]," he reveals. "I think, again, if it were that easy, if there weren't problems, we would still be together...Is it irreparable? You can never say never. I can't speak for my wife. I'm not going to sit here and b.s. you and tell you that we didn't have problems. But in our favor, or to our credit, we've always been able to talk about them and confront each other."
Watch the full interview when it airs on "Piers Morgan Tonight" Friday at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
