Cee-Lo Green issued an apology via Twitter. The five-time Grammy Award winner stated:
The singer-songwriter-producer temporarily deleted his Twitter, but has now reactivated his Twitter account.
In Green’s initial tweets, he equated rape to a home burglary. “When someone brakes on a home (sic) there is broken glass where is your plausible proof anyone was raped,” he wrote.
Green controversial tweets referred to his current run-in with the law. He was accused of giving ecstasy to a 33-year-old woman without her knowledge while dining at a Los Angeles restaurant in July 2012, before returning to the woman’s hotel.
Last Friday the Atlanta native was officially indicted with one felony count of furnishing a controlled substance. He was sentenced to three years probation, 360 hours of community service, 52 Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous classes and ordered to register as a controlled substance offender. However, sexual assault charges were not pursued due to lack of evidence.
Green has not tweeted anything since his apology relating to the case. TBS has canceled his reality show “The Good Life,” which focused on his former hip-hop group Goodie Mob. Sources said it was a result of poor ratings.
