Heidi Klum might seem nice, but she's got some sass in her when it comes to her kids.

Heidi Klum and Seal divorce takes ugly turn

Remember the good ole days when Heidi Klum and Seal were making babies instead of getting divorced? Yeah, those days are long gone: The pair is currently at odds over some photographs the British singer took of their children, according to RadarOnline.

Basically, the German supermodel is upset Seal used the photographs in a Leica digital camera commercial without her permission.

"Heidi felt that the children had gone through enough since their parents split, and she didn’t want their private moments out there for the world to see," an insider said. "But Seal maintained he had every right to use his personal photos —  and, moreover, that it was a done deal and out of his hands."

She eventually put her lawyers on the case and the photos were quickly removed.

"Heidi isn't trying to cause trouble," the source said, adding that Seal been dating around since their split earlier this year. "She’s just trying to protect her brood. Since she filed for divorce from Seal, he’s been out with more than one young woman, whereas Heidi hasn’t dated at all."

We're not sure what that has to do with anything, but OK. Klum was the one who wanted the divorce, while the "Kiss From a Rose" singer just wanted to stay together.

"You go into these things with the greatest intentions when you say 'I do' and you say ’till death do us part' — those vows hold value," he told Ellen DeGeneres after the news broke. "They are not just words. These things happen."

Maybe Klum is a little jealous he moved on?

"She’s not interested in beginning another relationship right now. Her primary goal is getting the kids through the divorce and making sure they are healthy and happy," the source said.
