Cee-Lo Green’s Date Accuses him of Spiking Drink with MDMA And Possibly Other Drugs

    Earlier this week, a troubling allegation centering around Cee Lo Green emerged.



    An unidentified woman he allegedly took on a date told police officers the singer and Voice judge snuck an ecstasy pill into her drink and then had sex with her while she was blacked out. The musician has since publically denied sexually assaulting her, but there are rumors that authorities taped a phone conversation in which he apologized to her for his behavior.

    No portion of the alleged recording has been made public, and police officers are refusing to comment on whether or not it even exists. Consequently, producers of The Voice are stuck in some kind of strange limbo. If the allegations ultimately prove true, Cee Lo’s tenure on the show won’t exactly be the most wholesome publicity of all-time. If the allegations prove untrue, however, Cee Lo is the real victim.

    You’d like to think producers would let this play out. You’d like to think they’d wait for the justice system to prove the singer’s guilt or innocence. Cee Lo has already announced he’s taking a season off to work on some side projects when this run is over, but given network executives are often pathologically afraid of causing real controversy, it wouldn’t be a shock if he didn’t finish out the season.

    Cee Lo Green, a judge on NBC's top-rated singing competition show "The Voice," was charged on Monday with furnishing a woman with ecstasy at an L.A. restaurant last year.

    The 38-year-old, whose real name is Thomas DeCarlo Calloway, pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors declined to file sexual assault charges against Green, citing a lack of evidence.

    Dressed in a relatively subdued all-black ensemble, Green, the Grammy-winning singer of the hit "Forget You" and half of the duo Gnarls Barkley, appeared before an L.A. County Superior Court judge Monday afternoon. He was accompanied by his attorney, Blair Berk, who entered his plea and waived his right to a speedy trial.

    Green is alleged to have put ecstasy in the 33-year-old woman's drink as they dined together at a Wokcano restaurant in July 2012. The woman told authorities she later woke up naked in bed with the singer in her hotel room.

    Berk said her client had "consensual relations" with the woman, and called the claims of sexual assault "false and unfounded."

    "We are pleased that the Los Angeles County district attorney has completed its investigation," she said Monday.

    If found guilty of furnishing a controlled substance, a felony, Green could face up to four years in prison.

    "The Voice," which won the Emmy for best reality-competition series, is NBC's highest-rated entertainment program and one of the top shows on television, drawing 13.8 million viewers last week. It has also proved to be a valuable lead-in for other series, like the network's freshman hit, "The Blacklist."

    NBC representatives were not immediately available for comment on the case.

    Cee-Lo Green: It’s only rape if women ‘remember’ it happening

    After Cee-Lo Green pleaded no contest to charges of supplying a woman with the party drug Ecstasy, the R&B singer decided to discuss the case on Twitter.

    The singer, born Thomas DeCarlo Calloway, had allegedly spiked a 33-year-old woman's drink with MDMA at a Los Angeles restaurant in 2012, after which she said she woke up naked in his hotel room with no memory of the night before. Prosecutors had declined to press charges on rape of an intoxicated person due to lack of evidence, but Green had previously been caught on tape talking about the case and admitting to possession of the drug.

    Green, the singer behind hit singles like "Forget You" and a former judge on "The Voice," posted several comments about the case on his Twitter account that quickly enraged fans.

    Among them was his (empirically false) belief that, "People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!”

    Green went on, adding, "When someone brakes on a home there is broken glass where is your plausible proof that anyone was raped." He also wrote, "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent," a statement as rhetorically confusing as it is offensive.
    The singer later deleted this series of tweets, and then his entire Twitter account, after fans pilloried him online.

    Green eventually revived his account, offering a pseudo-apology by saying, "I'd never condone the harm of any women," and that his comments were "taken so far out of context."

    How can a tweet be taken "out of context"? The statements can only be referred to, thought about, or interpreted for whatever meaning may lie in the above mess of rhetorical dysentary when read online, once the same words are used verbatim and without editing on any other plane of existence they can't be taken at face value? That must be why when I repeat those sentences in the context of my mental reality they just seem offensive in a ignorant, probably not malicious, offhanded way? I guess the sentences are only contextual on twitter before the image of the letters get viciously and slanderously torn up and misquoted with malicious intent by that damn asshole in the eye.

    If a stupid sentence is posted and shared worldwide on twitter, but no one is around to read it and then talk about it, is it still stupid?
