Accused: Cee-Lo Green Denies Sexual Battery31 October 2012
TMZ revealed yesterday (October 30, 2012) that Cee-Lo Green (real name Thomas DeCarlo Calloway) has been accused of sexual assault.
A woman recently filed a police report regarding the incident, with LAPD, who have visited a restaurant in downtown LA. On their visit there, they are understood to have spoken to the manager of the restaurant as well as several of the employees. However, it has not been confirmed whether or not the alleged incident took place at the restaurant or elsewhere. LAPD will not be revealing the identity of the alleged victim or the location of the incident.
Cee Lo, however, has spoken to TMZ and insists that he has done no wrong. According to The Voice judge, he hasn’t even been to the restaurant in question in three months and he insists “nothing happened there or anywhere else.” TMZ also spoke to a close acquaintance of Green’s who spends a lot of time with the singer, who insists “I have never seen Cee Lo act in a physical way toward anybody."
Currently, the investigation is still in its early stages. No charges have been filed and the case has not yet been referred to prosecutors. This isn’t the first time that Cee Lo has had the law on his back though; he was arrested back in 2001 when he reportedly threatened his then-wife and smashed in the windows of their Jaguar.
