Seal's Sexual Battery Case Thrown Out

She alleged he attempted to kiss her before belittling her for wearing a tank top and shorts and groping her breasts - after she shouted, "What are you doing?"

The investigation into allegations of sexual battery made against Seal have been dropped, according to USA Today.

It looks as if the singer will not face legal repercussions, however, as the Los Angeles district attorney has thrown out the case.

Last month, Seal, 54, "vehemently" denied the allegations made against him, and according to his publicist, meant to "vigorously defend himself against these false allegations".

SpaceX to launch prototype Starlink satellites for global internet — GeekWire
The Falcon 9 rocket carrying the payload is expected to lift off from the Vandenberg Air Force Base at 6:17am PT on February 17. The FCC granted SpaceX a license in November to launch this pair of satellites as part of a test mission.

According to a document obtained by ET, the DA has rejected the case, brought against the 54-year-old singer by a former neighbor, citing the delay in reporting the incident, the statute of limitations and the lack of witnesses and/or evidence to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt.

Days after Seal urged sexual abuse victims to come forward with their stories of abuse in a Facebook post last month, Seal's ex-neighbor and actress Tracey Birdsall accused the singer of behaving inappropriately toward her in 2016. She claimed that when she went to Seal's house to retrieve a salad spinner she'd lent him, he tried to kiss her and also groped her. Seal vehemently denied the charges.

"To all of you who have been raped, to all of you who have been sexually abused, I applaud you for coming forward", Seal said in a video. "We talk about it, we open dialogue, we solve it". "What you did takes real courage", he said. "Do not hide your life experiences to protect another who didn't take your feelings into consideration when they didn't respect your body or your personal integrity".

Seal had no comment, his rep, Luke Burland, told USA TODAY.
