Seal sexual battery case rejected by DA

New York Daily News

LOS ANGELES — Seal will not face criminal charges in a sexual battery complaint filed last month by his ex-neighbor, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said Monday.

The case — in which actress Tracey Birdsall claimed the “Kiss from a Rose” singer groped her and tried to kiss her — was rejected due to a lack of witnesses and evidence, as well as an expired statute of limitations.

Birdsall alleged last month Seal sexually assaulted her in February 2016 after she dropped by his house to retrieve a salad spinner he’d borrowed.

The 54-year-old actress alleged he lunged at her, groped her breasts and tried to kiss her — claims Seal has continued to deny.
