The sad celebrity matrimony news just keeps coming.

Heidi Klum is reportedly filing for divorce from Seal after more than six years of marriage. TMZ broke the story this morning, reporting that Klum will be filing the papers in L.A. County Superior Court next week.

The couple had renewed their wedding vows just last May (as they have every year since they were first married), but Klum will be citing "irreconcilable differences," as the reason for the split, according to TMZ.

The German model and singer have four children together. They wed on a beach in Mexico in May 2005, five months after Seal proposed to Klum inside an igloo he built for the occasion in Whistler, British Columbia. They were last seen together publicly in late December; Klum attended the Golden Globes alone last week.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
