Cee Lo Accuser

He Slipped Me Ecstasy

And Had Sex with Me

11/2/2012 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The woman who filed a police report accusing Cee Lo of sexual battery secretly recorded a conversation with the singer, and sources involved in the case tell TMZ ... Cee Lo admitted slipping her a drug and then having sex with her -- something the singer denies.

The woman has told cops ... Cee Lo took her to a downtown L.A. restaurant in July. They had a drink and she says she remembers nothing after that. The woman claims the next thing she knew she was lying naked in a bed and Cee Lo was in the room.

We're told the woman, who does not live in California, almost immediately went to her local law enforcement agency and reported the incident. The matter was eventually referred to the LAPD.

Sources tell us ... LAPD detectives had the woman make a "pretext call" -- a call in which someone baits the other party into acknowledging a crime or other misdeed -- and it was recorded.

Sources involved in the case represent to TMZ ... Cee Lo is on tape, repeatedly apologizing and referencing MDMA (Ecstasy) -- though he does not specifically say he put it in her drink. Sources say Cee Lo told her he thought the drug would help them have an exciting time together. For the record, MDMA generally does not render people unconscious.

Sources connected with Cee Lo scoff at the claim, saying if the tape contained such admissions Cee Lo would already be under arrest.

As we first reported ... detectives went to the restaurant last week to determine if employees saw anything unusual between Cee Lo and the woman.

And we're told ... LAPD detectives will refer the matter to the L.A. County District Attorney's Office when the investigation is completed.

Sources connected to Cee Lo tell us ... the accuser went to a civil lawyer BEFORE going to police and demanded money from the singer to make the whole thing go away. Other sources tell us a different story -- that her lawyer called Cee Lo's manager to find out if the singer had any communicable diseases and never made any money demands.

Our Cee Lo sources say the manager shut the lawyer down and that's when she went to cops.  Other sources say she called the cops BEFORE her lawyer called Cee Lo's manager.

I think it is horrible to report without facts in something that is this mortally wrong. IF this turns out to be true he should be prosecuted and his fans should turn their backs and wallets elsewhere.

He is worth over 22 MILLION Dollars!! I don't think he has to use drugs for sex, there are a lot of women who will sleep with any guy no matter how ugly he is just because he is famous and has money. They want to be a part of that type of lifestyle so bad they will do anything. Many of you keep saying Cee-lo only has one hit song but that's not true. Obviously you do not know who this singer is and what all he has done. He was part of Gnarles Barkley and they did the hit song "Crazy" which was a Worldwide #1 hit on many music charts. Their parent album also hit #4 on the U.S. hot 100 charts. As far as his solo career his 3 albums have all been huge successes, not just that one song everyone knows. In Europe and the UK every album he has ever done has been in the top 5 on their charts so he gets paid for worldwide sales not just what sells here in the U.S.
He also had hits when he was with Goodie Mob, one of the first groups he sang in. Although their hits were not as big and not high chart toppers they did rake in a lot of money.

On top of all that he is a major Producer and rakes in money for that too, He wrote a song for Sex in the city which reached #9 on the charts. He just recently produced some stuff with the *****cat Dolls and Snoop Dog, as well as Red Hot Chili Peppers and OneRepublic. If that ain't enough, he voiced the cartoon character Murray the Mummy in the Disney Worldwide hit movie Hotel Transylvania. Yeah voice actors get paid too, usually a star like Cee lo will get 250k and if they make a sequel to the movie he could get 500-1 million just to do a cartoon voice.

Let's not forget on top of all his producer and singer work, he is a judge on the hit show The Voice and he raked in a cool 6 million dollars for season 3. With their current hit ratings he is sure to get a raise for season 4 and they will probably demand at least 8-10 million as judges. I mean he earned 6 mil for just judging a singing contest, that is more money than most people make in a whole lifetime, so with that kind of green, he can afford to hire the hottest porn stars in the business if he wants nasty sex. He sure don't have to rape anyone, lol

Just being accused of something like this is enough to tarnish someone's reputation. Because some people are going to believe it until its proven false.

I don't know much about this guy but he seems to be the type that minds his own business, not a person to create problems for himself, is very loyal to his fans.

I know of someone on Long Island that does this; he slips chicks a date rape drug, hides a video camera and does a porn w/o their knowledge or permission. And now, he has Aids and gets his meds/****tail free from the good people of Long Island, who now have enough trouble paying for the hurricane damage to their homes. This x game playing is death.

My question would be..if she reported immediately why no test for MDMA? I'm so disappointed because if there's a source with the pretext call. You don't apologize for something that didn't happen. "I thought it would enhance the pretty damning.

Wonder what The Voice will do. His team just lost.
