Crime scene Seal

Why does Seal live in LA? Is it because Heidi Klum, the main breadwinner in his partnership, works there? Or is there another reason?

Apparently, it's because LA is safer:

"L.A. is no more dangerous than London - in fact, you could say it's less so."

Could you, Seal?

The LA murder rate is 12.4 people per 100,000 of the population [FBI Crime rates, 2006]; in London, it's 2.09 [Based on 155 murders in the Metropolitan Police area population of 7.4 million].

To be fair, though, we imagine in you live with Heidi Klum in a secure mansion, you would find LA to be safer than, say, if you were sleeping rough in New Cross.
