Cee Lo

Sexual Assault Accuser

Had Long History with Singer

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.

He attacked her inside the restaurant. NO WAIT! He raped her in a cheap motel room. NO WAIT! He raped her in an expensive hotel. NO WAIT! The cops have Cee Lo on tape talking to the victim in his bedroom apologizing for taking ecstasy with her the night before. NO WAIT! They've been dating for several months now. NO WAIT! They've never met before in their lives. NO WAIT! She was Cee Lo's date.

The story from the woman's representatives seems to be changing an awful lot.

Here is what I think: She never met to sleep with Cee Lo. She just wanted to date him and have him buy her drugs and jewelry. They both consented to taking ecstasy. While under the influence of the drug, they had sex. The next morning she regretted her decisions from the previous night and figure claiming rape would be the easiest way to undo it.

I am not saying that she consented to engaging in sexual intercourse. She did not. I am saying that both participants were so high on the drug neither individual could legally consent to anything.

The woman is claiming she went to a sushi joint, drank a soda, and then woke up naked in a bed with Cee Lo. What I have not seen in any of the stories is that Cee Lo and the woman engaged in any sexual or simulated sexual activities.
---
She may have been raped, she may not have been raped. None of the stories explicitly state that the two individuals engaged in sexual activities. All that is stated is that both individuals were under the influence of a drug that impairs their judgment rendering both individuals incapable of consenting to anything. Basically, she may have raped Cee Lo, since Cee Lo was incapable of consenting to the alleged sexual activities.
---
Of course, this is dependent on someone finding evidence that the two of them did engage in sexual activities on the night in question. Until there is evidence of sexual relations, it is he said she said.
