Tracey Birdsall, an actor who lives nearby to the singer in Los Angeles, told the entertainment news site TMZ that the pair initially became friends.
She alleges that he tried to kiss her and also groped her chest, and later excused his behavior by telling her that her outfit of short-shorts and a tank top suggested she was asking for it. It's not clear if the case will move to a courtroom, but Los Angeles police say that a report of sexual battery was filed against the singer on Saturday, per Page Six.
Seal is under investigation for sexual battery after he allegedly groped and forcibly kissed a former neighbor, TMZ reports.
'He intends to vigorously defend himself against these false allegations'. She claimed she was in shock when SEAL asked her to stay and sit on the couch next to him.
Despite expressing her discomfort the singer then began to grope her breasts and forcefully kiss her.
Ironically, Birdsall told the site that it wasn't until she saw a videoSeal posted encouraging sexual misconduct victims to speak out that she chose to report the alleged incident to police. She claims she left after that and never spoke to him again. Let's just say we've all heard things about each other, haven't we?' Oh, and he still has his Weinstein post up criticizing Oprah.
He was soon taken to task by model Chrissy Teigen, who posted a cryptic comment on his Instagram post.
The actress's allegations come one week after SEAL openly blasted liberal icon Oprah Winfrey for being a hypocrite on women's rights and sexual abuse.
With Tracey Birdsall coming forward with these allegations against Heidi Klum's ex-husband Seal, the singer's fans may be wondering about the actress's background.
