Cee Lo Green

Judgment Week

D.A. Decides Whether to Prosecute

10/8/2013 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1006_cee-lo-green_tmz
The LAPD is busy writing up a detailed report that will determine whether Cee Lo Green is prosecuted for date rape ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... a woman accused the singer of spiking her drink with ecstasy at a Downtown L.A. sushi joint last year.  She claimed the next thing she remembered was waking up in a bed naked with Cee Lo in the room.

She also claimed to have a recording of Cee Lo repeatedly apologizing and referencing MDMA ... although sources close to the singer called BS.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, LAPD detectives submitted the case to the L.A. County D.A. but prosecutors were not satisfied with the evidence and kicked the case back to the cops for further investigation. The re-investigation has taken months ... we're told more than 5.

As for what additional info the D.A. wanted ... we're hearing two things. First they wanted additional toxicology information on what, if any, drugs were found in the woman's system.

Our law enforcement sources say the process of screening for various drugs often takes months because different labs perform different tests.  And the process is also very expensive.

We're also told cops may have been looking for additional witnesses to break the he-said/she-said stalemate.  Sources close to Cee Lo remain adamant ... the woman's allegations are NOT true.

Our sources say when the report is written, the LAPD will personally present it to the D.A.'s office -- that should either happen late this week or the following.

One well-placed law enforcement source tells TMZ it's doubtful the D.A. have the goods to prosecute Cee Lo.

LAPD--THOSE INITIALS SHOULD IMMEDIATELY TELL YOU HOW THIS IS GOING TO END. CHECK OUT THE EXCUSES AND RED HERRINGS THEY CONJURED UP TO COVER HIS ASS.
- LAPD detectives (claimed to have) submitted the case to the L.A. County D.A. BUT prosecutors were NOT SATISFIED with the evidence and kicked the case back to the cops for further investigation (to stall for 5 MORE MONTHS)
- they wanted additional toxicology information on what, if any, drugs were found in the woman's system- and as we all know-the process of screening for various drugs OFTEN TAKES MONTHS because different labs perform different tests (whatever) AND the process is also very expensive (how does the expense play into this stall. I mean investigation.)
- The cops MAY have been looking for additional witnesses to break the he-said/she-said stalemate (isn't that the case in EVERY situation--but those don't get kicked back for re-investigations)
FURTHERMORE, the victim claimed to have a recording of Cee Lo repeatedly apologizing and referencing MDMA (but that's not good enough for the D.A.) Either she has a tape or she doesn't despite claims of "sources" close to the singer that she's full of sh1t.
Apparently, they haven't offered her enough money to back off--and the court is running out of (il)legal maneuvers to stall filing charges.

I think Christina Aguilera put ecstasy in the girl's drink and not Cee Lo Green. They are both on the voice.

This goof looks awkward and then being a fatso does not help, so I'm sure this is not the first or the last time he will be accused of such shena****ns.

I saw an article about CeeLo torturing animals for fun and also mugging then beating up older folks out of boredom. He just admits this stuff -then says he's "changed". Fact is, it shows your true colors... what you do when you think nobody is watching says a lot about your character. CeeLo always comes off as a creepy pervert on The Voice the way he Ogles and makes innuendos toward contestants. He does this on camera- imagine his behavior off screen. Even if this particular story is a farce, I have no doubt that CeeLo is now and has been exploiting women in different ways.
