Los Angeles prosecutors have decided not to file criminal charges against Seal in connection with allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior lodged by actress Tracey Birdsall.

Ricardo Santiago, a spokesman for Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey, told USA TODAY Monday that prosecutors declined to file charges against the British singer. Santiago did not offer details.

Last month, Seal, who turns 55 on Feb. 19, "vehemently denied" accusations of sexual misconduct by his former neighbor, vowing to "vigorously defend himself against these false allegations.”
