British singer Seal is the latest celebrity to come under fire for sexual assault.

According to CNN, Seal is under police investigation for sexual battery. This comes after the award-winning singer posted a video on social media in support of the #MeToo movement.

In the vid, he says, “Not one of the women who have been, not one of the women who have come forward has received any real justice whatsoever. Losing your job because you either, A raped, B sexually abused or even sexually harassed a women is not real punishment.”

According to TMZ, actress Tracey Birdsall told the publication she and Seal were neighbours back in 2016 and they’d built a strong friendship – nothing romantic. However, she claims Seal forced himself on her, attempting to kiss her. She says she shouted, "What are you doing?" and the father of three replied, "I'm kissing you!"

Tracey also claims Seal invited her over to the couch where he attempted to kiss her as he made fun of her tank top and shorts, then groped her breast.

In a statement given to TMZ, Seal’s rep said, "Seal vehemently denies the recent allegations made against him by a former neighbour for alleged misconduct more than a year ago. He intends to vigorously defend himself against these false allegations."
