Heidi Klum has been warned not to reconcile with estranged husband Seal by his ex-girlfriend who insists she and the kids will be safer without him.
Tatjana Patitz, who like Klum is also a German born Supermodel, dated the 48-year-old British singer in the late 90's and claims that the relationship fizzled out because of Seal's "inability to control his temper," according to In Touch magazine.
"He has anger issues. He is not a nice person [and] he is definitely not someone who I think of fondly now," Patitz told In Touch.
Patitz went on to say that her suspicions that Seal had cheated on her was another reason for their break-up and she believes that 38-year-old Klum must file for divorce "because there are children involved."
Klum and Seal, who have three biological children together Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2, and Klum's daughter Leni, 7, from a prior relationship, recently confirmed that after seven years of marriage they were separating.
"While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate," the pair said in a statement.
Although there were rumors of Seal having a volcanic temper which ultimately destroyed the marriage, he had openly denied the rumors in an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan.
The estranged couple continues to wear their wedding rings, which has left fans suspecting that a reconciliation is likely.
"It may happen. You can never say never. I can't speak for my wife, and I'm not going to sit here and BS you and tell you we haven't had problems," Seal candidly told Morgan.
"I don't know. I don't know at this moment to be honest, Piers. Again, if it were that easy, if there weren't problems, we would still be together," he added.
Seal then went on to explain his decision to continue wearing his wedding band saying, "I'm still wearing my wedding ring because I'm still married to this incredible woman," he said.
Unlike Seal, Klum has remained silent about their troubled marriage and on Tuesday finally spoke out thanking fans.
"Hi everyone, I want to thank u for all your support & kind words. Really means so much. Thanks again...to the best fans in the world! xoHeidi," Klum tweeted on Tuesday.
Sources suspect that it is Klum who called time on their marriage although it is unclear whether she plans to go through with a divorce.
