Seal has made sudden about-face on Twitter and apologised for his outburst aimed at the media and Star Casino.

The British soul singer fired off a series of harsh tweets on Wednesday morning following the media attention on a drug raid on  the apartment of fellow The Voice coach Joel Madden.

In his twitter tirade Seal said Madden was meeting with a cancer victim when the hotel sent police to his room, and that the US rocker was being trashed in the media for ''having a joint''.

But the posts were quickly deleted and soon after a  fresh series of tweets appeared apologising for, and explaining,  his outrage.''I want to apologise for my rant earlier. Joel is one of my best  friends and I was really hurting for him,'' Seal tweeted.

''I want to say I have loved being in Australia, I've loved  working on The Voice and with an incredibly talented group of  Australian artists.''It's been almost 11 weeks away from my kids and me saying

''I  can't wait to go home'' was me missing being home with them.''

Madden admitted his hotel room at the Star Casino in Sydney was raided by police on Sunday after a cleaner found a small amount of marijuana.

The Good Charlotte frontman also said police have told him he will not be charged.

In response, Seal tweeted: ''...Shame one (sic) the Star...you  ask him to meet n greet a cancer victim in your hotel then send  police to his room?? Nice very classy..keep it up Judas. I'm done  here. can't wait to go home,'' Seal originally tweeted.

The Nine Network said in a statement police have also confirmed  to them that Madden will not be charged.
