Seal has filed his own legal papers to end his marriage to Heidi Klum, four days after the supermodel initiated divorce proceedings.
The German beauty lodged papers in a Los Angeles court on Friday (06Apr12), requesting joint legal custody of the couple's four kids and primary physical custody.
On Tuesday (10Apr12), the Kiss From a Rose hitmaker followed suit with his own divorce filing.
The documents suggest he is set to challenge Heidi Klum for joint physical custody of their children, but a source tells People.com the wording is just a legal technicality and the former couple is not bracing for a court showdown.
Both stars have cited irreconcilable differences for the breakdown of their relationship.
The pair wed in May, 2005 and announced its split in January (12).
