Supermodel Heidi Klum broke her silence on Wednesday for the first time since announcing her split from Seal, her husband of seven years. The "Project Runway" host took to Twitter, writing, "Hi everyone, I want to thank u for all your support & kind words. Really means so much. Thanks again...to the best fans in the world!"
The message was posted following Seal's guest appearance on several shows last week while he promoted his new album, "Soul 2." The singer appeared on "Extra" and "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and spoke openly about the breakup, insisting he will keep wearing his wedding ring, and that he still has the utmost respect for Klum.
When Seal appeared as a guest at The Grove and spoke with "Extra's" Mario Lopez, he said didn't know if there would be reconciliation with Heidi, saying, "That's not something you think about during this time."
It was rumored that the cause of their split stemmed from Seal's hot temper and their careers moving in different directions.
Over the weekend, Seal, 48, was spotted in France after attending the NRJ Music Awards 2012. His estranged wife was in L.A., tending to their four children -- shuttling them to their many classes and activities -- including Leni's ballet lesson.
The Extra List: Quotes from Heidi Klum & Seal
Why is Seal So Sexy?
"I don't know why I got so lucky. I have to pinch myself often and say, 'Is this just a dream?' Not only do I love my husband for the obvious reasons, but also he is one of the kindest, most loving men I have ever met."He is sexy to me because he is fearless and not afraid to show his emotions. He is a super sexy, hot kisser and... he is sexy to me because he can be singing in front of 25,000 people one minute and, the next, be changing our daughter's diaper." --Heidi
The Marrying Couple

He puts me and the children first." --Heidi
