DELTA Goodrem and Seal have clashed on The Voice as a woman's magazine reports Seal is struggling to cope with his failed marriage.
Goodrem told Team Seal singer Michelle Martinez her rendition of Lloyd's hip hop hit Dedication To An Ex was not up to her usual vocal standard.
But Seal said he had to "respectfully disagree" with Goodrem, describing the performance as "flawless".
According to News Ltd, Goodrem was visibly angry at being chipped and when filming continued during the ad break, involving all four coaches, she took Seal to task.
The off-screen row, while filmed for The Voice website, was not put to air.
Meanwhile, Woman's Day is reporting, that backstage bust-ups, diva behaviour and a public meltdown from coach Seal are causing a stir for The Voice family.
The magazine says Seal is struggling with the turmoil in his private life, leading to an extraordinary on-stage outburst about his estranged wife Heidi Klum, the mother of his four children.
"The Voice insiders say Seal's explosion is a result of not only growing tensions with his ex-wife, but a new feud with mentor Connie Mitchell and the breakdown of his romance with Delta Goodrem,'' a publicity piece for the magazine says.
"The addition of Ricky Martin, plus a reinvented Delta, and stressed-out contestants who know how high the stakes are after last year's juggernaut, have made this season more emotionally charged than anyone could have predicted.
"And it all reached boiling point last week in a shock outburst from Seal, 50, at his concert at Sydney casino The Star.
"After one crowd member yelled to Seal that he was "wonderful", Seal responded by asking: "Do you really believe that though? You do? Do I believe him? I kind of do, but my ex-wife doesn't… she doesn't think I'm wonderful at all," he bizarrely told the crowd before adding, "My kids do."
"Seal's public rant comes days after the woman he was married to for seven years appeared to take her relationship with the couple's former bodyguard Martin Kristen to the next level.''
