London: Heidi Klum has been accused of ‘aping’ the tactics of TV mafia boss Tony Soprano to divorce Seal, but the British Singer is apparently unperturbed, according to reports.
In an episode of ‘The Sopranos’, Tony spoils his wife’s chance to find a top divorce lawyer by having brief meetings with all attorneys in a 50-mile radius.
Confidentiality rules ensure that none of them can go on to represent her.
The 38-year-old is said to have ‘poisoned the water’ for Seal by interviewing at least eight of Los Angeles’s top celebrity divorce lawyers in the past two weeks.
“Every prominent attorney she has met cannot now represent her husband. The assumption is she shared confidential information with them all and if they were to represent her spouse, they would breach California Bar Association rules,” the Daily Express quoted Jim Federline, family law expert, as saying.
“This isn’t the first time this has happened in Hollywood and it won’t be the last,” Mike Raia, media analyst, said.
“The result usually is the other party has to bring in a lawyer from another city. Seal might have to cast his eyes towards New York and fly a legal team from there,” Raia added.
However, Klum’s “Soprano effect”, revealed by US news website TMZ, does not seem to have upset Seal, as he continued flaunting his wedding ring throughout the week.
