Singer Seal and his girlfriend of over one year Erica Packer have reportedly called it quits on their relationship.
The Kiss From A Rose hitmaker, who has four children with ex-wife Heidi Klum, was first linked to the Australian model in the summer of 2015, and although they seemed head over heels in love, The Sydney Morning Herald reports the pair have quietly split.
News of the break-up may come as a shock to some fans, as earlier this year (16) Erica couldn’t help but gush over their romance.
“I’m very happy,” she revealed. “It’s an incredibly happy time in my life and he’s (Seal’s) a very beautiful and magical soul and I feel lucky to have met him.”
Seal and Erica became so tight over the course of their relationship, rumours she was pregnant with his child emerged, but he laughed off the chatter as nonsense.
“Ah, you’ve read the rumours!” he grinned coyly to Details magazine when quizzed on becoming a dad for the fifth time. “I’m going to be annoying and say if you read it in a magazine… The fact that people are even remotely interested in if I’m becoming a father again is ridiculous.”
Erica is the ex-wife of billionaire James Packer, who suffered his own harsh split with singer Mariah Carey in October (16) after the pair engaged in a heated argument during a Greece vacation.
Mariah and James ended their engagement just ten months after agreeing to marry each other in January (16).
Erica’s marriage with James came to a conclusion in 2013 after six years of being man and wife. The exes share three children together.
