Cee Lo Green Makes Controversial Rape Comments on Twitter

Singer tries to define sex without consent in series of tweets.

Published September 1, 2014

Cee Lo Green couldn't leave well enough alone after getting a minor sentence for a no contest plea to a 2012 incident in which he allegedly slipped a woman ecstacy and brought her to his bed without her knowledge. The "F--k You" singer felt the need to defend himself on Twitter against accusations that his actions constituted rape. 

Last night (August 31), Cee Lo tweeted, "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously." He also added, "People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!" and pointed out that there was "no broken glass" to prove the charges. Cee Lo added that his no contest plea was not an admission of guilt, but asked, "So if I TRIED but did NOT succeed but the person said I DID then what really happened?"

The singer was given three years probation and 45 days of community service — with no sex charges filed against him — after the woman claimed she was drugged by Green and woke up in bed next to him with no recollection of what transpired.

Green has since deleted all of his tweets. "I will not allow that negative energy to loiter on my time line," he wrote in conclusion to his bizarre and offensive rant.
