She finally speaks. Since Heidi Klum and Seal announced their separation, the supermodel has stayed mum while Seal has made numerous appearances, even sharing details about his failed marriage on “Ellen,” The Huff Post reports.
Now Klum has broken her silence. Klum spoke out on Twitter this morning, breaking her silence in the wake of last week’s surprise separation announcement to thank fans and well-wishers for their support since the breakdown of her seven-year marriage, according to E! Online.
“Hi everyone, I want to thank u for all your support & kind words.Really means so much. Thanks again…to the best fans in the world! xoHeidi,” she tweeted Tuesday.
Up until now, the Project Runway host has let her actions speak for her, appearing in public while still wearing her wedding ring (just like her estranged hubby).
The typically verbose supermodel had previously fallen silent via the social networking site since announcing that she and her husband of seven years were separating. But the adage, “a picture is worth a thousand words,” seems to hold true for the separated couple.
Revealing their shocking split January 23, Klum and Seal have vowed to put on a united front for the sake of their four children, reports US Weekly.
“The main thing is to make sure that they feel that they’re loved, make sure that they understand that their parents love each other, make sure that they understand if there are any changes, it is absolutely nothing to do with them,” Seal told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush of Leni, 7, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2.
“While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul searching we have decided to separate,” the couple’s previous statement read.
“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.”
For his part, the crooner explained to Ellen DeGeneres why the band will remain on his finger.
“I think it’s just pretty much a token of how I feel about this woman. We have eight years. Eight wonderful years together,” Seal told DeGeneres, 53.
“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.”
Of course, her words have nothing on her loudest action of all: despite making news of their split public, neither she nor Seal has yet filed for divorce.
As we reported earlier, Heidi Klum was going to fill in divorcing papers because of her husband’ hard partying. The tension in couple’s relationships is believed to have started when having a rest in Ibiza in August.
A source told reporters: “They were always the couple everybody strived to be but lately it all started to change. Seal seems to have been partying a lot more often than usual.”
“When they had their holiday in Ibiza last summer, Seal hit it hard, was out at clubs and with his friends a lot and Heidi was left with their kids trying to enjoy herself. The cracks were appearing and everybody was talking during that trip. He seemed off the rails,” the insider added.
“They’ve spent a lot of time apart too on work assignments and that hasn’t helped matters. Then when Seal came back to the UK to do promotional work for his next album, he seemed sleepy and not with it on shows like Loose Women, when he was very late for his appearance.”
