Sources told the website that the singer is now ready to end their marriage and recognizes that the postnuptial agreement he signed is enforceable and will be “substantially honored.”

Seal’s sudden revelation that their marriage is really over appears to be inspired by knowledge that Klum has been dating their mutual bodyguard Martin Kristen for three months. Seal was furious about the news and chastised Klum for “fornicating with the help.” The 39-year-old model responded with a statement that she has moved on from her relationship with Seal, but still cherishes all the memories they created together.

Sources tell TMZ that Seal later retracted his statements and clarified that he didn’t accuse Klum of cheating, because he didn’t want the divorce negotiations to become ugly.
