Delta Goodrem's loved-up with fellow musician Matthew Copley and happier than ever – but her world came crashing down last week when news broke that her ex-flame, Seal, had been forced to deny allegations he assaulted a female neighbour.
Actress Tracey Birdsall, 54, came forward with the shock claims, which a spokesman for the LA County Sheriff's office has since confirmed are under investigation.
Tracey, whose most recent role was in sci-fi film Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter, alleges she and the Kiss From A Rose singer had originally formed a friendship when they lived next door in Malibu.
However, when she visited him one day in November 2016 to retrieve a salad spinner she had lent him, she says things took a terrifying turn.
According to Tracey, Seal, 54, lunged at her, attempting to forcibly kiss her repeatedly.
When she asked him what he was doing, Seal allegedly replied, "I'm kissing you," before commenting on the tank top and shorts she was wearing.
He then began groping her breasts, claims Tracey, despite her telling him to stop, before inviting her to sit next to him on the couch where she claims he groped her again.
While Seal has vehemently denied the allegations, the accusations will no doubt have come as a huge shock to Delta, who's thought to be heartbroken.
