Seal on Heidi: 'I owe it to the public to speak up'

Six months after his divorce from Heidi Klum, former The Voice judge Seal has spoken publicly about the split.

The 49-year-old singer spoke to USA Today.

“When you live your private life in public, and things aren’t necessarily as rosy as people think, you owe it to the public to speak up,” he said.

“There were people who were genuinely upset that what they thought was perfect was no longer.

“I’m in an excellent place right now. In a situation like this, your priority is the children. As long as the children are happy, I’m happy.”

Seal and Heidi married  in 2005 and have three kids together. Seal has also adopted Heidi’s daughter from a previous relationship.

In an interview with Elle Magazine in March, Heidi spoke for the first time since the divorce. She said she felt like she was in the “eye of a tornado.” “I don’t want to talk positively or negatively about the ups and downs that we had. Every couple goes through things. Unfortunately, we’re in the public, so the highs are out there. But I don’t think it’s necessary—especially for our children—to have the lows being printed in magazines and talked about.”
