Details of Heidi Klum and Seal's divorce have been sparse since they announced their split on Jan. 22. The couple, who were married for seven years, told the public that they had grown apart.
In an official statement released to People, the couple said: 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.
However, TMZ broke the news that the real reason behind the split was supposedly Seal's anger issues. Now, that supposition might seem a bit more factual as Seal's ex-girlfriend, model Tatjana Patitz speaks out.
The German model broke her silence to InTouch magazine saying, He is not a nice person. He has anger issues. He is definitely not someone who I think of fondly now.
Patitz and Seal dated back in 1997. The model, who is also German, believes that the 48-year-old crooner cheated on her during that time.
In the 90s, Tatjana Patitz was one of the most famous faces in fashion. She made an appearance alongside Cindy Crawford in a George Michael music video and starred in Duran Duran's Skin Trade video.
She is reportedly pleased with Heidi Klum's decision to divorce Seal. She believes this is the best option because there are children involved.
Though Patitz's statement might shed light on another side to Seal, the divorce still came as a huge shock to Hollywood. The Project Runway host and famous singer were one of the most beloved couples in Tinseltown.
In an interview with InStyle UK magazine, which Klum covers for March 2012, the supermodel gushed about Seal. During the InStyle interview, Klum did not give a single hint at any trouble in paradise.
I don't know why we work, my husband and I. We just do. We are black and white - Yin and Yang. To me, his beautiful face, great body, amazing heart, voice, his ability to be a loving, caring person and father... what can I say? she said.
He can be mad too and I have a lot of fun with him. He's off the cuff. He's not fixed in his ways. And he knows how to handle me. It's always been really passionate between us.
