The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers reveal that a Y&R alum is leveling some serious accusations. According to TMZ, Seal is now under criminal investigation for sexual battery. He recently spoke out against sexual misconduct in the media and urged women to tell their stories.
That’s what ultimately led the accuser to come forward. Tracey Birdsall was a guest star on The Young and the Restless back in 2012. She filed a report detailing her allegations on Saturday. Birdsall lived near Seal in 2016, which led to a friendship. However, she insists things escalated after she stopped by to retrieve a salad spinner she had loaned.
Birdsall claims Seal suddenly planted kisses on her and began groping her breasts. She alleges that Seal also mocked her attire and eventually came at her again. Birdsall contends that she later left Seal’s home and never reached out to him after that. After seeing Seal object to sexual misconduct in the news, Birdsall decided she wasn’t willing to stay silent any longer.
Seal’s rep gave TMZ his response to Birdsall’s claims and the criminal investigation. The singer maintains his innocence and plans to fight this. “Seal vehemently denies the recent allegations made against him by a former neighbor for alleged misconduct more than a year ago,” the rep said. “He intends to vigorously defend himself against these false allegations.”
As for what’s next in Genoa City, The Young and the Restless spoilers say the drama will continue to heat up. Many crucial characters will face ups and downs in the coming months. Several big storylines will bring twists and turns, but let’s hope there are no major scandals behind the scenes. If other investigations with Y&R ties emerge, we’ll be sure to keep you informed.
