Woman Says Seal Forced His Kiss
From A Rose On Her, Police Investigating
Well, this took a strange turn. Singer Seal is being investigated by police over a woman accusing him of forcing himself on her while retrieving a salad spinner out of his kitchen. This news comes just days after he publicly criticized Oprah for being acquaintances with Harvey Weinstein. According to TMZ, Actress Tracey Birdsall and Seal were neighbors in Los Angeles in the fall of 2016. She says the two developed a close friendship until an incident at Seal’s home where 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 told TMZ 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!” Seals unwarranted advance continued after leading Tracey to a couch, where she claims he began to touch her and criticize her clothing. CREEPY AF.
L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. confirms a report was taken Saturday for sexual battery, the incident is under investigation. Tracey said it was his hypocritical Weinstein outburts that caused her to step forward about the assualt.
Seal is apparently denying this went down this way, according to his rep. Figures. Oh, and he still has his Weinstein post up criticizing Oprah.
