'Singer Seal under investigation for Sexual Battery & Assault'

British singer/songwriter Olusegun Adeola Samuel professionally known as Seal is being investigated on charges of sexual battery and assault, according to a new report by TMZ.

Seal’s former neighbor in his LA home, actress Tracey Birdsall told TMZ that the singer came on to her in the fall of 2016 when she went over to retrieve a salad spinner.

She claims the singer lunged at her when she was at his place and when she asked what he was trying to do, he replied “I’m kissing you”. He then began to belittle her outfit (a tank top and shorts) before trying to grope her.

The singer has however denied her claims. His representative told Rolling Stone;
Seal vehemently denies the recent accusations made against him by a former neighbor for alleged misconduct of more than a year ago. He intends to vigorously defend himself against these false allegations.
According to TMZ, the L.A County Sheriff Department has however taken a report for sexual battery and will continue to investigate.

Seal recently made headlines following this month's Golden Globes, when he posted a picture of Oprah Winfrey with Harvey Weinstein on Instagram, accusing the media mogul of knowing about Harvey Weinstein's misconduct but staying silent.

"#SanctimoniousHollywood," he tagged the post, criticising Oprah's viral speech which praised women who came forward against their harassers as part of the #MeToo movement.

He later clarified the post, saying he wasn't attacking Oprah but "the hypocritical and double standard nature and behaviour of Hollywood."

Birdsall, the singer's accuser, told TMZ it was Seal's comments about Oprah, in which he also encouraged women to share their own stories of sexual harassment, that convinced her to go to the police with the allegations.
