Cee-Lo Green Facing Felony Drug Charge
Miley Cyrus isn’t the only Hollywood heavyweight with an affinty for “Molly.”
Cee-Lo Green, the resident outre mentor on NBC’s The Voice, is expected to be charged with ecstasy possession by prosecutors in Los Angeles this week. This after the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office failed to build a sexual assault case against the popular singer.
The woman at the center of the case claims Cee-Lo, 39, slipped the drug into her drink during a date at a local sushi restaurant back in 2012. The unidentified Texas woman told police she woke up naked in bed with Green the following morning… with no knowledge of how she got there.
The case wasn’t without its challenges. Authorities found inconsistencies in the accuser’s story. For starters, the pair had been romantically-linked since meeting at a Super Bowl party earlier in the year. They’d also previously been intimate.
Green, whose real name is Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, has denied any wrongdoing. He was, however, caught on tape by the woman in question reportedly referencing ecstasy. Prosecuting attorneys view the tape as admission of drug use, as a result Cee-Lo will be charged with one felony count of furnishing ecstasy.
He could be arraigned as early as Monday.
