Cee Lo Green is allegedly under investigation for sexual assault, although "The Voice" judge is adamant that he has done nothing wrong.
According to a new report, Cee Lo Green has come under the radar of the Los Angeles police after a woman filed sexual assault charges against him. But according to the "Forget You" singer, he is innocent.
Law enforcement officials spoke of the incident to TMZ, although the name of the alleged victim has not been released. According to TMZ, police questioned workers at a downtown restaurant in L.A. but none stated what the affiliation of the restaurant was to the case.
The singer has distanced himself from the case, stating that he has not visited the restaurant in over three months.
"Nothing ever happened there or anywhere else," Cee Lo said, according to the report.
"I have never seen Cee Lo act in a physical way toward anybody," a second source who is close to the "Voice" judge added.
Green, whose real name is Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, was arrested in 2001 after smashing the window of a Jaguar that he shared with his then wife, Christina Johnson. The July incident took place in Fayette County, Ga., prompting Johnson to call police. He was charged with "simple assault (family violence)" and "disorderly conduct" and released the same day on $2,800 bail, according to Radar Online.
He was arrested for a second time in September and spent two days in jail after failing to show up in court. In 2004, Johnson filed for divorce claiming "mental and physical cruelty." The couple officially split in 2005.
Green later commented that he had taken control of his temper and used music to become a better person.
"I was saved through my association with music," he said according to the Radar report. "Music truly did calm a savage beast."
