Heidi Klum and Seal's Custody Battle Begins

Heidi Klum is seeking full custody of her children.

While Heidi Klum and Seal’s separation seemed to be an amicable one, new reports are surfacing leading us to believe that an ugly custody battle is about to come under way.

A new report from Star magazine says, “The original agreement was that Heidi would have primary custody and Seal could visit at any time. But since the breakup was announced [on Jan. 22], Heidi has been looking to pack up their home in Brentwood and go back to New York.”

Seal plans to stay on the west coast in California while Heidi wishes to move her four children, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, Lou, 2, and Leni, 7, to New York City – far away from their father. ”She believes his lifestyle and criminal issues don’t provide a ‘conducive environment’ for their kids,” the source explains.

According to this report, Seal has a violent history, pushing Heidi and having a raging temper, as well as multiple run-ins with the law, including drug trafficking and promoting prostitution.

“Heidi had no idea,” the source says. “She’s dumbfounded that Seal led a double life. Things are going to get nasty between them.”

What do you think about these allegations? Who deserves the kids?

    Um…according to the article she claims those were the REASONS why she wants CUSTODY. Not necessarily for the divorce. She is surprised about his history, which any girl/woman would be. Hell, I just recently learned my husband got a traffic ticket 2 years ago (who knows why he didn’t tell me), and we’ve been married over 17 years.

    Imagine how much digging it took for her to learn the REAL him, behind all of the persona he shows off to the public. As per the real reasons she is divorcing him? I DO think he might have a temper problem. There have been numerous instances where he has cursed off the paparazzi, his own wife, and random strangers. His own body language during the MANY interviews showed how defensive he was being to the whole topic of his anger problems. If he didn’t have an anger problem, she wouldn’t be taking his kids away from him 100%.

    This was going to be an amicable divorce, mainly for HIS cause (good move on her part), but then he starts taking interviews left and right…plus going back against his original word of giving HER full custody? Hell yes she’s going to fight for her kids now!

    I think they were doing really well with the split/divorce, until things got way out of hand from him. He’s not perfect, far from it. She’s not perfect. But, all in all, what do you believe more? He was abusive, and blame the victim. (AKA thinking what “Tom Powell above me thinks”) OR do you take her side, as a strong independent woman, who’s husband felt threatened/demasculated by his wife? I believe she was a bigger star then him, and he didn’t like being called Mr. Heidi Kulm…therefore, taking it out on her in private.

    I also don’t think they will ever get back together after this. If they do, it’s a mistake. Now, THAT’S my two thoughts.

    PS. Did it ever occur to anyone that NOW BECAUSE of the release of a new cd, is the PERFECT time to leave him? Other then the additional press for him, imagine how little he will be actually at home around her. This is the perfect time to leave an abusive husband. He won’t be there to threaten, attack, insult, degrade, or try to change her mind about the divorce. It gives her the perfect opportunity to get her ducks in a row. Just sayin’.
