    Default Police investigating singer Seal for sexual battery

    Police investigating Seal for sexual battery

    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.”

    Apparently he does have a temper but a temper and sexual battery are two different things.

    Not loving the trend of guy supports movement, guy makes paper for sexual assault allegations.

    Unless they are actually guilty of course.

    Seal is under criminal investigation for sexual battery, just one week after he publicly encouraged sexual abuse victims to come forward ... but the singer denies any wrongdoing.


    Actress Tracey Birdsall tells us she and Seal were neighbors in Los Angeles in the fall of 2016. She says the two developed a close friendship -- and only that -- until an incident at Seal's home. Tracey says she was in Seal's kitchen to retrieve a salad spinner she'd lent him when all of a sudden, he lunged at her.


    Tracey tells us Seal forced himself on her, attempting to kiss her. She says she shouted, "What are you doing?!" and the singer replied, "I'm kissing you!"

    Birdsall claims Seal then began to belittle her for what she was wearing (a tank top and shorts) -- insinuating she was asking for it -- and he began to grope her breasts. She says she demanded he stop.

    Tracey tells us Seal then invited her to sit on the couch next to him ... she says she was in shock and complied. Birdsall claims Seal once again began to make fun of what she was wearing and groped her again. Tracey says she left shortly after that and did not have contact with Seal again.

    Birdsall says it wasn't until she saw Seal's comments about Oprah and Harvey Weinstein -- where he encouraged women to share their own stories of sexual misconduct -- that she decided to report it to the cops.

    A source with the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. confirms a report was taken Saturday for sexual battery ... the incident is under investigation.
    A rep for Seal tells us, "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."

    Wait, she demanded he stop (good!) but was in shock so she sat on the couch?

    I thought that was odd too. I would have split asap. I would be thinking, he's going to attack me. I need to escape.

    I hope against hope that it is untrue, but I have a feeling that it is.

    I hope I’m not being obtuse, but if a woman finds herself in an awful situation with a man pressuring her, why wouldn’t she leave? If the man isn’t threatening you, or holding control over your career, why wouldn’t you immediately leave?

    If I’m wrong, please help me understand this.

    She second guesses her own thoughts and gut instincts? She is worried about what he will think of her if she is wrong?

    I think the answer is summed up nicely in this piece written about the Aziz Ansari debacle:

    If you are asking why Grace didn’t just leave, just run out the door, just bail off the balcony at the first hint of things gone awry, ask yourself: Why don’t you just leave? Why didn’t you read Grace’s account of Ansari’s behavior and abandon him as a fan? I’ll tell you: Because Grace’s account doesn’t track with what you thought you already knew about the dude. You’re waiting for the “real” Ansari to show up and be vindicated. You’re waiting for Grace to be proven wrong. You’re waiting for somebody to step out from behind the curtain and reassure you that this whole thing is a misunderstanding and that Aziz Ansari is the man you thought he was.

    You are waiting for the same man Grace was waiting for before she couldn’t safely wait any longer. You’re welcome to stay there, but if you do, you can’t condemn Grace for doing the same thing.
    If this happened like she says it did, she saw him as a friend: someone safe. It's shocking when someone you think wouldn't behave that way behaves that way. Also, some people just freeze. It's a very common reaction to sexual assault.
