Recently, Heidi Klum claimed in legal documents that ex-husband Seal‘s time with their children is ‘sporadic at best’. Now, the singer hit back with a declaration of his own saying that the ‘America’s Got Talent’ judge has a hidden agenda behind wanting to take her kids to Germany.
Heidi was married to Seal (born Henry Olusegun Adeola Samuel) from 2005 to 2014. The couple shares four kids together, Helene (16), Henry (14), Johan (13) and Lou (10).
The claims by Seal come from court documents filed on August 19. This filing was a response to Klum’s order seeking permission to take her children to Germany from October to December 2020. In the documents obtained by HollywoodLife, the singer writes that he’s worried his children will be stuck in Germany for an extended period of time, given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Seal writes, “I believe Heidi has a hidden agenda to move the children to Germany. Notwithstanding Heidi’s request, if granted, could in effect move the children away from me and their home here in Los Angeles to Germany for what could be an indefinite period of time.”
In the same documents, the songwriter also mentions that he shares a close bond with all their kids. He adds that he tries to spend as much time as possible with them when not working. He continues, “Although I do not have a regular custodial schedule with the children, I have made it a point to be as involved in the children’s lives as I can.”
Seal also notes that he should be entitled enough time to prepare an opposition to Heidi’s request, which he feels, “if granted, could have a permanent impact on the children’s relationship with me.” Seal adds that he fears them leaving for Europe with Heidi Klum could have a ‘permanent impact’ their bond.
