Seal is being investigated for criminal sexual battery — and vehemently denies the allegations.
Actress Tracey Birdsall alleged that the singer, with whom she was platonic friends, lunged at her during a visit to his home and tried to forcibly kiss her, TMZ reports.
Birdsall, 54, claims that the “Crazy” crooner commented on her allegedly revealing outfit and began to grope her breasts, despite her telling him to stop.
Seal, 54, then invited her to sit next to him on his couch, where she claims he groped her once again. Birdsall told TMZ that after the incident, she left Seal’s home and hasn’t contacted him since.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that a report was filed against the singer on Saturday.
Ironically, Birdsall told the site that it wasn’t until she saw a video Seal posted encouraging sexual misconduct victims to speak out that she decided to report the alleged incident to police.
A rep for Seal unequivocally denied the accusations, telling TMZ, “Seal vehemently denies the recent allegations made against him by a former neighbor for alleged misconduct more than a year ago. He intends to vigorously defend himself against these false allegations.”
