DA Dismisses Sexual Battery Case Against Seal

The Los Angeles County District Attorney has tossed out a sexual battery case against Seal due to a lack of evidence to support the claims, according to multiple reports.

Actress Tracey Birdsall accused the singer of groping and forcefully kissing her in 2016 and a criminal investigation was opened in January.

However, a lack of evidence from Birdsall and a lack of witnesses caused the D.A. to drop the case, TMZ reports. And according to Page Six, the statute of limitations also ran out.

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

A rep for Seal denied the claims, saying that "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."
