Seal sexual battery investigation dropped

Seal sexual battery investigation dropped

Ricardo Santiago, a spokesman for Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey, told USA TODAY Monday that prosecutors declined to file charges against the British singer.

She claimed that when she visited his Los Angeles home to retrieve a salad spinner he had borrowed from her, the singer forced himself on her and forcibly tried to kiss her.

Singer Seal will not face criminal charges stemming from an allegation of sexual assault, ABC News has confirmed.

They have now decided not to move forward, citing lack of witnesses.

"Birdsall, who claims she and Seal were platonic friends and nothing more, said she chose to come forward after viewing a video in which the singer encouraged women to share their own experiences with sexual misconduct", wrote the publication.

Seal vehemently denied the allegations, but law enforcement sources told the gossip website they received a report of sexual battery in January and were investigating the alleged incident.

"He intends to vigorously defend himself against these false allegations", the statement also read.

Just days before the allegations came to light, Seal caused some controversy on social media, calling out Hollywood hypocrisy with a past photo of Oprah Winfrey kissing Harvey Weinstein on the cheek, before later clarifying that he has "enormous respect" for her.

The alleged victim chose to come forward with her story after Heidi Klum's ex made comments about Oprah Winfrey potentially knowing about Harvey Weinstein's predatory ways. It included a caption that read, "When you have been part of the problem for decades.but suddenly they all think you are the solution".
