Cee Lo Green accused of drugging alleged sexual battery victim
UPI News Service, 11/02/2012
Cee Lo Green is heard in a taped conversation admitting he gave a woman ecstasy and then had sex with her in Los Angeles, TMZ reported Friday.
The unidentified woman recently filed a police report accusing "The Voice" coach of sexual battery.
TMZ said the woman told police she had a drink with Green at a downtown Los Angeles restaurant in July, and then woke up naked with the recording artist the next morning, having no further recollection of the previous night.
The alleged victim does not live in California and almost immediately went to her local law enforcement agency to report the incident, the celebrity news website said.
The matter was referred to the Los Angeles Police Department, where detectives recorded a call from the woman to Green, during which they discussed the events of the night in question, TMZ said.
The website quoted sources who heard the audio as saying Green repeatedly apologized for his behavior. The insiders said he referred to ecstasy, although he did not specifically say he put the drug in her drink.
Green has denied the allegations to the media and no criminal charges have been filed.
Green will soon be seen in a holiday special co-starring The Muppets.
