Ceelo Green - CeeLo Green placed on probation

CeeLo Green has been placed on three years of formal probation.

The former 'The Voice' USA mentor - real name Thomas DeCarlo Callaway - appeared in the Los Angeles District Attorney's office on Friday (29.08.14) and pleaded no contest to one felony count of furnishing ecstasy to a 33-year-old female, after she accused him of slipping her the drug without her knowledge in July 2012.

The 'Forget You' hitmaker, who maintains they ''shared'' the drug, also also entered a special plea in which he maintained his innocence in the case, according to NBC LA.

He must also complete 360 hours of community service and attend 52 Alcoholics Anonymous/Narcotics Anonymous meetings.

A spokesperson for the Grammy-winning artist told E! News: ''CeeLo Green is pleased that the District Attorney's office would allow him the opportunity to resolve this appropriately and maintain his innocence. He is happy to put this behind him and continue to move forward.''

He was ordered to return to court on March 5, 2015 for a progress report.

Prosecutors rejected a rape charge against the musician in October 2013, in relation to the same incident, citing insufficient evidence.

At the time CeeLo's lawyer, Blair Berk, said his client ''encouraged a full and complete investigation of those claims and he was confident once conducted he would be cleared of having any wrongful intent and it would be established that any relations were consensual.''
