Cee Lo

Sexual Assault Accuser

Had Long History with Singer

EXCLUSIVE

1106_cee_lo_green_article_tmz
The woman accusing Cee Lo Green of drugging and sexually assaulting her was not on a first date with the singer -- not by a long shot -- they had a long history together ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... the woman told cops Cee Lo took her to a downtown L.A. restaurant in July, where she claims he slipped a drug in her drink. She says the next thing she knew she was laying naked in a bed with him in a room. Cops are investigating the allegation and we're told the case will be referred to the L.A. County DA.
 
Sources connected with the case tell us ... the woman and Cee Lo met at the Super Bowl in February, 2012. They hung out over the weekend. She went back to Houston, where she lives, and Cee Lo returned to L.A., but they stayed in touch and dated on and off ever since. In addition to seeing each other (he flew her out to L.A. from time to time), they frequently texted and spoke on the phone.

Sources tell TMZ ... the woman sometimes asked Cee Lo to buy her expensive things and even asked his friend how she could get him to buy her expensive things.

Sources connected with Cee Lo tell us ... on the day in question, he had flown her out to L.A. They went to the restaurant and afterward both took Ecstasy and stayed up all night. One source says, "No one was unconscious."

Our Cee Lo sources claim the woman fabricated the story because she's involved with someone back in Texas who got wind she was in L.A. with Cee Lo and she was just covering her butt.

Sources connected with the woman say her relationship with Cee Lo is irrelevant, because Cee Lo is on tape allegedly apologizing and referencing MDMA (Ecstasy), saying he thought the drug would help them have an exciting time together.

I just figured she's out for his money, I always thought he was gay or A-sexual esp. when he's walking around with a pink bird on his shoulder

So if this actually happened, why did she wait until now to report it?

There are many contradictory statements from these 'sources' ... too many unanswered questions (Did she go to the hospital? Why didn't she go to LAPD? Did she really try to get money before going to police? etc. etc.).


TMZ says the case was referred to the DA, so I guess we shall hear soon enough if they will be charging him or not.

Sorry Ce-lo, whether she is a gold-digger or not, u can't slip something into a woman's drink and have sex with her. That's rape. And if you are caught on tape admitting it, you are toast. The fact that they are referring the case to the D.A means the police sees something wrong here.

I'm not going to trash him until there is something to support her story. If it comes to light that he actually did there will still be lots of time to hate on him and he deserves to be punished. I'm suspicious of her story too because they knew each other and she waited so long before reporting it. If she took it at the restaurant and was unconscious there should be witnesses to account for her being carried out of there. As far as I know ecstasy doesn't make you unconscious but the date rape drug.does. I could be wrong about that though. I agree with the previous commenter that false sexual assault claims need more accountability and are just as wrong as committing a rape.

I don't believe he did it. She after money. And why is TMZ smearing CeeLo's name? They are making this relevant, I haven't heard about this anywhere else. He will be damaged forever from these accusations.

Rape victims are usually fearful to report to police, can't hold delay against her. Peeps need to wait to see what cops have, not fair to smear either alleged victim or Mr Cee at this time...

Celo looks like a fat, ugly mutt that had to pay for it. The girl in question sounds like a money ho. Who knows what happened between them. Doubtful charges will be filed.

"Sources tells TMZ ... the woman sometimes asked Cee Lo to buy her expensive things and even asked his friend how she could get him to buy her expensive things."
Isn't this the definition of a gold digger.

a long time Leno fan!    

The ONLY thing that matters is Cee Lo slipped this woman a drug rendering her unable to make her own conscious decision to have sex with him or not. He's probably guilty though ultimately NOT guilty until its proven in a court of law. And THAT court of law will NEVER hold him accountable because of the amount of money he's going to throw at either this woman OR the higher ups involved in every direction of this case.
I can name of few - Robert Wagner, Christopher Walken, Claus von Bulow....help me out here, Harvey!
