Seal Pops Off on Reporter Who Asks if He’s Poppin’ BottlesPublished by Natasha Fierce on Wednesday, August 1, 2012 at 10:00 am.
Is it just us, or does Seal seem to be getting more and more slippery following his separation from Heidi Klum?
The British singer, who has been spotted on more than one occasion partying with some younger models, put a reporter from Madison Magazine on blast after she questioned his sobriety.
The incident took place during an interview with up-and-comer Emma-Louise Birdsall, who is mentored by Seal on Australia’s version of The Voice. A reporter asked Birdsall about her professional relationship with Seal, but threw in a personal question to the mix: “Was he drunk?”
While Emma stayed true to her mentor, replying, “No, Seal doesn’t drink; he’s very into that clean living,” the “Kiss From a Rose” singer didn’t hold back his rage. He later tweeted:
“Just read interview with the amazing @emma_birdsall in Madison Mag,” he began.
“While she came across impeccably classy, shame about the low-life level of journalism. ‘What was your relationship like with Seal?’ ‘Was he drunk?’ Honestly, really? Is that how you guys plan on getting me back to Australia, by resorting to the lowest form of gutter s***?”
“Keep it up!” he concluded.
Undoubtedly, drinking is a sore subject for Seal, since it has been rumored to be the cause behind the break-up of his marriage to Victoria’s Secret model Klum. “I don’t drink alcohol,” he said in the months following his separation. “I haven’t drunk anything for a year.”
Still, given the year he’s had, could anyone blame him for wanting a little nip?
