X17 EXCLUSIVE - Seal's Record Label Calls Split "Horrible Timing"

Posted on Mon Jan 23, 2012 03:30 PM PDT


Seal is about to embark on a big publicity push for his upcoming album Soul 2, and X17online has learned that his label, Warner Bros. Records, is not preventing media outlets from asking questions about his recent split from Heidi Klum.

The "Kiss From A Rose" singer is taping The Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday afternoon. As for whether Ellen will ask questions about his separation from Heidi, a publicist at Warner Bros. Records tells X17online exclusively:

    "Out of respect to Seal, we don't think Ellen will go there with the questioning. She's not tabloidy. If this were Wendy Williams, that would be different."

The couple's split being announced the day before Seal's big record release is "purely coincidental," the rep at the label tells us. She adds:

    "Seal and Heidi's split has nothing to do with his new album coming out tomorrow. He's had these promotional dates scheduled for months. This is horrible timing."

But as we know, even bad publicity can work in someone's favor. The publicist admits:

    "As sad as it is, their split has definitely generated awareness to the new album. We'll support him as best we can."

The first single “Let’s Stay Together" from the new album was released on November 1. Pretty ironic title, don't you think?

Do you think this split will help or hurt Seal's album sales?


X17 Poll

Do you think Heidi and Seal's divorce was timed to coincide with the release of his album?

No! They'd never use their family for publicity like that.
Yes! It's too coincidental that they made the announcement the day before his album drops.
The whole thing may be a prank anyway; they probably won't end up divorcing.
