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:
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.
