Seal's in an 'excellent place' post-split

Heidi Klum and Seal seem to be moving on pretty well from their publicized split earlier this year - or, at least, they are in the press.

Klum gave a German media outlet a hopeful response when the topic of her divorce from the "Kiss from a Rose" singer came up, and Seal, who's promoting a new album, tells USA Today that he's also doing well.

Seal's preparing to kick off a North American tour today, and he told the paper that he understands some fans are likely still taken aback that his seven-year union to Klum didn't last.

"When you live your private life in public, and things aren't necessarily as rosy as people think, you owe it to the public to speak up," the  49-year-old singer/songwriter said."There were people genuinely upset that what they thought was perfect was no longer."

Seal himself isn't shedding any tears, though. "I'm in an excellent place right now," he said of his post-breakup life. "In a situation like this,  your priority is your children. As long as the children are happy, I'm happy."

Klum must have the same philosophy, because she said as much in a recent interview with the German newspaper Bild am Sonntag.

"I look into the future, concentrate on my family and I have to say that I'm happy,” she said. “There are worse things in life than a separation."

    Mr. Samuel WAS in an "excellent place" until he found out about the 'help'. Lesson to learn: never take others for granted. I think he presumed she would be there for him with the 4 kids in tow.

    God bless

    Get real, Heidi's first baby daddy didn't want her or the baby. Still doesn't want her. She was lucky to find somebody who did.

      You sound like a five year old making fun of Seal's face, FYI he has a disease that causes the scars on his face. You have a pathetic life if all you see in someone is their looks. I bet you're as UGLY as the comment you posted.

      Why and what does "those kind mean"? The marriage didnt work over 50 percent of marriages end in divorce. Why be so negative about people who you really don't know. Respect him for taking on a child he did not actually father but accepted and took care of her as if she was his. Now what about the deadbeat dad who really fathered her.

    It seems Seal's singing career is back on the move. He was second fiddle to Heidi who has no real talent but managed to make a lot of money as a famous model and attractive woman. Seal, on the other hand has real substance as she does not. They will do better individually than together unless Heidi retires. Maybe that could work but they are likely past their relationship.

    She says "There are worse things in life than a seperation." I'd have to say that would be the high point after seeing that face for so long.

      How childish to speak on someone's looks. I don't know how long you've been on this earth, but I want to tell you that sometimes the prettiest people are the ugliest. I'm glad that Seal's concerns are in the right place and that is with their children.

    • Just saying

      Sometimes the prettiest people are the ugliest? Are you talking about Heidi? She is a demented degenerate in her mind and psychology, but just for outside appearances, that dude looks like he had a close encounter with a meat grinder. Old washed ip model, singer that never was much good, two miscegenation moolies cursing the good news here.
