Heidi Klum hasn’t utter a peep other than a small tweet on January 31 regarding the end of her seven-year marriage to Seal. It seems she’s uncomfortable telling anyone about it, but she’s finally opening up a little. In the latest issue of Elle, the 38-year-old shares her emotions about the whole break. ”I feel like I’m in the eye of the tornado,” she says. “It’s emotions inside of your body that are a tornado. And then the outside world doing all this craziness—with you wanting it or not wanting it—is another tornado… But as hard as it is, so is life. And sometimes I think a curveball just comes at you. Instead of something straight that you catch, it hits you in the head from the side that you didn’t expect.” Read more…

The tears were barely dry following the news that Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis had split, now Heidi Klum and Seal’s separation is causing us to sob, “Whyyyyy?!?!?!” Take that box of tissues back out — here’s a photographic look back on the model and singer’s love story…
Maybe 2012 really is the end of the world. In the last few weeks, it seems like tons of longstanding couples have announced that they are splitting up. First, and perhaps most heartbreakingly, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis — and now Heidi Klum and Seal? (Please don’t let anything happen to William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman.) Heidi and Seal always seemed so in love! But perhaps renewing your vows every year and being breathtakingly attractive isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Perhaps the truth about their relationship is a lot darker – more thorns than roses? The rumors running around the internet are that Seal’s temper sometimes got the best of him, and while the pair appeared perfect on camera, he was often moody and difficult. But until that’s confirmed by Heidi, we’re free to speculate wildly about their separation. After the jump, we give you nine possible reasons the “Project Runway” auf-er and the pop star are splitting.
You guys. According to TMZ, Heidi Klum and Seal are over after seven years of marriage, and she’s planning on filing divorce papers next week. Now, normally I’m not terribly shocked when a celeb couple breaks up, but these two really genuinely seemed in love. And they seemed to be super hot for each other after all those years (seven years is, like, 20 years in Hollywood). And they have four kids! And they dressed up as apes for Halloween only a few months ago! One of their best costumes ever! I guess this is just further proof that renewing your vows every year doesn’t do dick to keep you together. Sigh. I’m sad. Marriage is dead and Heidi Klum is back on the market. Dating in New York just got that much harder. [TMZ]
“If I were to answer it just kind of bold-faced, I would say what scares me is that I’m going to ultimately find out at the end of my life that I’m really not lovable, that I’m not worthy of being loved. That there’s something fundamentally wrong with me. … I used to think that what scared me was the idea of being abandoned until someone said to me, ‘Only children can be abandoned. Adults can’t be abandoned because we have a choice. Children don’t have a choice.”
– Demi Moore talks to Harper’s Bazaar about her insecurities just a few months after her split from husband Ashton Kutcher, who allegedly cheated on her at least once. I hate to admit it, but Demi and I share a similar irrational insecurity — the fear of being unworthy or incapable of being loved. I’ve learned to recognize that fear as, ultimately, just a fantasy and have worked on finding ways to cultivate love internally rather than depending on getting it externally. I hope Demi does the same! [Harper's Bazaar]
Sinead, say it isn’t so! Sinead O’Connor announced on her website that she and her new husband, Barry Herridge, are splitting 18 days after they married in Las Vegas. Sinead blamed the split on the influence of people in Herridge’s family who didn’t approve of their union, especially in light of rumors about Sinead in the press. Keep reading »
“By the way, I enjoyed my first marriage. It’s definitely not something I regret. The experience was ultimately very positive. I love the kids that came out of it, and I could see no other route to take. But you move on, don’t you? You’re right, I stepped into a soap opera, and I lived in it for quite a long period of my life. I’ll probably be more eloquent on it 10 years from now. When you end up with a lot of the things you set out to chase and find that you’ve stumbled into all sorts of hollow victories, then you become deeply philosophical. I’m quite happy that that experience was accelerated for me. I’m glad I made money, in other words. And I’m glad I got married.”
– Guy Ritchie counts the blessings that his marriage to Madonna resulted in, namely his children (including biological son Rocco), and, duh, the boatloads of money he got paid when they divorced. As usual, Guy is just being his charmingly honest self. Remember when he said that making love to the Material Girl was like “cuddling a piece of gristle”? Oof. That was mean. [Details]
Well, the love story of Kim Kardashian and, uh, that one guy whose name we barely bothered to remember, has come to a conclusion. Kardashian is filing for divorce, allegedly because her basketball playing husband, Kris Humphries, wanted to live in Minnesota, while she, of course, cannot imagine leaving the paparazzi-filled streets of Hollywood. Kardashian released a statement, saying:
After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.
Indeed, it probably wasn’t in the plan to end their marriage quite this soon, but Kim luckily has nearly $18 million in crisp dollar bills she made off the wedding to mop up her tears. (Unless, of course, she actually decides to follow any of our suggestions and donates her bounty to a good cause.)
Married for only 72 days, Kim’s (second!) marriage joins a long line of short celeb marriages. Keep clicking to see some of the other speedy celebrity marriages that met an early demise.
