After splitting back in January, for the sake of their children, the two originally wanted to remain friendly as they headed down the road to splitsville, but it no longer appears that way.
Heidi's request for primary custody of the couple's children has been countered by Seal, who's demanding that they both get equal time with the kids.
Not only are the kids - Leni, 8; Henry, 6; Johan, 5; and Lou, 2 - being caught smack dab in the middle of the divorce, but so are the successful duo's assets. Although the 39-year-old supermodel, who's worth an estimated $70 million, claimed there weren't any joint assets, Seal begs to differ.
As if that's not enough, a third disagreement has entered the whirlwind after the 49-year-old "Kiss From A Rose" singer used intimate shots of the children in a Leica digital ad campaign. An insider says:
"Heidi felt that the children had gone through enough since their parents split, and she didn’t want their private moments out there for the world to see. But Seal maintained he had every right to use his personal photos — and, moreover, that it was a done deal and out of his hands.”
According to RadarOnline, Heidi hired a lawyer to demand that Leica retract the video and within days it was taken down.
"Heidi isn't trying to cause trouble," revealed the friend, explaining that Heidi has always tried hard to keep her children out of the spotlight. “She’s just trying to protect her brood. Since she filed for divorce from Seal, he’s been out with more than one young woman, whereas Heidi hasn’t dated at all.”
“She’s not interested in beginning another relationship right now. Her primary goal is getting the kids through the divorce and making sure they are healthy and happy."
We just hope the two are able to get over their differences for the sake of their little ones.
