When Seal and Heidi Klum announced their split last month, the singer went on the talk show circuit and was very candid about the end of his marriage.
While Heidi has kept quiet for the most part, Seal defends his decision to open up about their divorce.
"When you publicize your marriage as much as our marriage was publicized, when you renew wedding vows, when you do all those things, what you are saying to people is … you're giving people a picture of an ideal relationship that people aspire to.
When it goes south, you can't all of a sudden take the philosophy of a monk and decide to go for a vow of silence. It doesn’t really work like that. I respect my wife's decision not to talk about that, but I felt that people at least deserved some kind of explanation why the picture of the ideal wasn't what they thought it was.
It's not like this [split] happened and I decided the next week to go on the show. I've tried my very best to protect the general welfare of my family, my wife included."
We wish other celebs had the same philosophy as Seal's. What we're saying is, we just want a little explanation, that's all!
