Tracey Birdsall, an actor who lives nearby to the singer in Los Angeles, told the entertainment news site TMZ that the pair initially became friends. Birdsall recalled shouting, to which the "Fly Like an Eagle" singer responded: "I'm kissing you!"
Birdsall claims that Seal then began to comment on her wearing a tank top and shorts and insinuated that she was asking for it. When the media came after him for alluding on the matter, he followed up with a video explaining that he has an "enormous amount of respect" for the talk-show host and encouraged women to come forward with any sexual assault stories. The singer apologized for reposting a meme that intimated that Oprah Winfrey was aware of disgraced former studio mogul Harvey Weinstein's decades of alleged sexual assaults and said nothing.
"Seal vehemently denies the recent allegations made against him by a former neighbor for alleged misconduct more than a year ago".
