Singer Seal has refused to remove his wedding ring after his split from Heidi Klum, as he feels that it will forever serve as a token of respect for his former partner.
The Kiss From a Rose star and his wife of eight years shocked the world when they confirmed reports of a separation at the weekend, however, the Brit admits there is still a lot of love between them.
In a taped interview to be aired on her on Tuesday he gave the reasoning behind him sporting the wedding ring despite their decision of parting ways.
“I am still wearing my ring. I think it’s just pretty much a token of how I feel about this woman. We have eight years. Eight wonderful years together,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
“Just because we have decided to separate doesn’t necessarily mean you take off your ring and you’re no longer connected to that person. We will be connected in many ways ‘til the rest of our lives (sic)... through our children and also through this tremendous admiration, respect and love that we have for each other."
“Will we wear the ring for the rest of our lives? Who knows? But right now it feels really comfortable on my hand, so I have no intentions of taking it off anytime soon,” he added.
