"What are you doing!?" Birdsall recalled shouting, to which the "Fly Like an Eagle" singer responded: "I'm kissing you!"
The 54-Year-Old actress alleged Seal then belittled her about her outfit and said she was asking for it because she was wearing shorts and a tank top. She also claimed that he began groping her breasts until she demanded he stops.
She told the gossip site she agreed to sit on the couch with Seal after that because she was in shock, but then he continued to grope her breasts and poke fun at her outfit A report was taken on Saturday concerning Seal for sexual battery and the incident is under investigation.
According to a rep for the singer, Seal "vehemently denies the recent allegations made against him by a former neighbor for alleged misconduct more than a year ago."
"He intends to vigorously defend himself against these false allegations," the statement read.
On Wednesday, Seal took to Instagram to call out Oprah for being a hypocrite because of her friendship with the disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused by dozens of women of sexual assault, and even rape.
Seal posted a meme on his page showing Oprah in a photo with Weinstein.
The caption read, "When you have been part of the problem for decades, but suddenly they all think you are the solution."
Later on, he claimed that it was "not an attack on Oprah at all."
"Let me start by saying that I have an enormous amount of respect for everything that Oprah has achieved and contributed in her life," he wrote on Facebook. "What I reposted was not an attack on Oprah at all. She just happened to be the person photographed with the pig (Weinstein) in the picture. No, what I reposted was a commentary on the hypocritical and double-standard nature and behavior of Hollywood."
The artist was married to model Heidi Klum from 2005 and 2014. They have three children together, Henry, 12, Johan, 11 and Lou, 8.
