Seal has vehemently denied allegations of sexual misconduct lodged against him by actress Tracey Birdsall. The 54-year-old British “Kiss From a Rose” singer (born Henry Osusegun Adeola Samuel) is under criminal investigation for alleged sexual battery stemming from a reported incident that took place at his home in November 2016.
Birdsall told TMZ that she and the singer were neighbors in Los Angeles at the time and they developed a close friendship. The Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter star says she went to Seal’s house to retrieve a salad spinner when he allegedly lunged at her, forcing himself on her and attempting to kiss her as she shouted, “What are you doing?,” to which he reportedly replied, “I’m kissing you!” After allegedly making fun of her outfit — a tank top and shorts — Birdsall says Seal tried to grope her breasts as she again demanded he stop.
