Heidi Klum Breaks Her Silence on Split from Seal

The supermodel speaks out for the first time since announcing her surprise breakup, thanking her fans via Twitter

Since Seal and Heidi Klum announced their surprise split on Jan. 22, Seal has done enough talking about the breakup for both of them. Making the press rounds to promote his upcoming album Soul 2, the 48-year-old singer has candidly discussed the couple's separation on Tavis Smiley, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Piers Morgan Tonight -- while his supermodel estranged wife has stayed mum. That is, until now.

"Hi everyone, I want to thank u for all your support & kind words," Klum, 38, tweeted on Tuesday. "(It) really means so much. Thanks again...to the best fans in the world! xoHeidi."

Klum's message isn't exactly as soul-baring as some of Seal's interviews have been, but it is encouraging to hear from her at all. Before Tuesday's update, the Project Runway host's Twitter account had been silent since Jan. 15, and her sole comments on the split had come from a joint statement released by the couple Jan. 22.

"While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate," they said in the statement. "We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart. This is an amicable process and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority."

Seal and Klum, who tied the knot on May 10, 2005, have four children together: Heidi's daughter Leni, 7, from a previous relationship (Seal adopted her in 2009), and their biological children Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2.

For his part, Seal has had nothing but wonderful things to say about Klum since their split -- even leaving the door open for a reconciliation at some point down the road.

"Obviously I can't speak for my wife, and I'm not going to sit here and B.S. you and tell you we haven't had problems," Seal said during his Jan. 27 appearance on Piers Morgan Tonight. "(Reconciliation) may happen. Would I like it to? I don't know at this point. If it were that easy, if there weren't problems, we would still be together. That is the reality of it."
