LOS ANGELES, Feb 13 — An investigation into allegations of sexual battery against Seal has been dropped, according to reports.

In January, the 54-year-old Kiss From a Rose singer whose real name is Henry Osusegun Adeola Samuel was accused of groping actress Tracey Birdsall during a visit to his California home in November 2016.

It is understood that Birdsall and Seal were neighbours in Los Angeles at the time.

Seal dismissed Birdsall’s claims as “false allegations” and “vehemently denied” them.

His representatives stated that he intended to “vigorously defend himself” against the allegations.

Now, TMZ reports that the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office has rejected the criminal case, citing a “lack of witnesses or evidence to corroborate allegations”.

The statute of limitations has also run out.
