Seal claims he and Heidi Klum have “never had teamwork” when it comes to co-parenting.

The 58-year-old singer has four children – Leni, 17, Henry, 15, Johan, 14, and Lou, 11 – with his ex-wife Heidi, and has said that while co-parenting can work wonders when the parents are on the same page, he claims he and Heidi have never been able to work together.

He told Us Weekly magazine: “It can be challenging. It requires teamwork. If you are a team, if both parents are a team, then it’s really easy and that’s not a real challenge at all. … But you have to be a team. And if you’re not a team, then it can all fall to pieces.”

And when asked if he had that bond with Heidi, 47, he added: “No. … I never had that teamwork [with Heidi]. We never had teamwork.”

Seal and Heidi split in 2012 and finalised their divorce in 2014.

The pair were at loggerheads last year when Heidi – who is now married to Tom Kaulitz – claimed Seal was refusing to let her take their children to Germany with her, after she travelled there to film ‘Germany’s Next Top Model’.
