You may have heard that Seal and Heidi Klum will be separating. Seal recently spoke on the Tavis Smiley show and said that everything “will be handled civilly for the benefit of their kids.”
“Tavis asked Seal how he and Heidi can avoid the ugly break-up that has become prevalent among celebs, and he said, ‘We’re just not those kind of people.’ ”
“Seal said, ‘What one has to do in this situation is to remain civil, to retain one’s dignity, to be professional, and to understand that we are not the only people on this planet that are going through this.’ ”
“Seal’s conversation with Tavis Smiley on PBS airs this Friday, January 27 on PBS.”
Earlier in the week, TMZ reported that Heidi Klum was allegedly separating from Seal because of his temper.
Is it possible to be civil during a divorce? Is the civility just in front of the kids? Does it reflect a lack of anger, a lack of passion, a lack of care or just a person working really, really hard to control their emotions?
