CeeLo Green

Pleads NOT GUILTY

to Ecstasy Charge

CeeLo Green just pled not guilty to a charge of giving a woman ecstasy last year before having sex with her.

The singer had arrived with his lawyer Blair Berk to the criminal court house moments ago to be arraigned. He is currently posting $30,000 bond and is expected to turn himself in to authorities for booking within 24 hours.

Another hearing has been set for next month. CeeLo must be present. If convicted, he faces up to four years in state prison.

Due to insufficient evidence, prosecutors cleared Green of charges he also sexually assaulted the woman during the incident.

On his way into court, CeeLo told us he's relieved and not scared -- relieved that he's not being charged with sexual assault, and not scared of the drug charge.

CeeLo's attorney tells us, “We are pleased that the Los Angeles County District Attorney has completed its investigation and concluded that the evidence did not support the false and unfounded claims made over a year ago." She said any sexual contact between the two was consensual.

She adds, "As it relates to the one charge of furnishing or sharing ecstasy, Mr. Green will responsibly address that matter in a court of law."

Ah well I guess this puts a whole new take on him accusing someone of not tolerating his masculinity.

He is the poster boy for ecstasy and the role model for clean healthy living in the Los Angeles area. He is a living legend in his own mind.

Not even his fame and money will get women to sleep with him willingly.

It is possible he slipped something in the lady's drink and she had sex without realizing what she was doing. If he incapacitated her and had sex with her, that is like a rape. Maybe the police can't prove the rape, but they have this other charge. Karma seems to work so that if you get away with one thing, another one gets you. Four years in prison would be bad for his career. He also seems kind of soft mentally, so it would probably be hard for him to do time.


If the lady is your girlfriend, why do you have to drug her before you have sex with her? Since he put street drugs in her drink, maybe he bought the wrong thing. Or maybe he knowingly gave her a date rape drug to humiliate her. His songs suggest that he has a lot of resentments towards women.


He is one of those guys who holds a grudge for not being popular at one time. No matter that he is popular now, he still has a chip on his shoulder and a vendetta against women.


Some men do use sex as a weapon for some reason. They only hurt themselves in the end, but they still do it.
