Filing paperwork late last Friday afternoon — the way celebrities do when they want to bury news over a slow weekend — Heidi Klum initiated proceedings in Los Angeles to end her seven-year marriage with Seal. The development comes three months after the couple announced their separation; Klum cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split and asked for primary custody of their four children.
