His recent comments got him in some very hot water.
And now Cee Lo Green has returned to Twitter to apologise for his previous tweets about what constitutes rape.
Well, sort of.
Following the initial comments, Green shut down his account.
The Gnarls Barkley singer has since re-activated his account, telling fans: “I truly and deeply apologize for the comments attributed to me on Twitter. Those comments were idiotic, untrue and not what I believe.”
So the apology was for the comments ‘attributed’ to him.
Green, who recently pleaded ‘no contest’ to charges that he gave a woman ecstasy without her consent in 2012, took to Twitter earlier this week where he appeared to be saying that it is only rape if the woman is conscious.
He wrote: “If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously,” he said, adding, “People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!”
“When someone brakes on a home there is broken glass where is your plausible proof that anyone was raped.”
During the trial, the woman claimed that she had woken up next to Green not knowing what had happened.
Due to insufficient evidence, no rape charges were filed. Cee-Lo’s lawyer meanwhile contested that they had ‘consensual relations’.
He was sentenced to three years’ probation and 45 days community service.
Green later added on Twitter: “So if I tried but did not succeed but the person said I did then what really happened?”
The former The Voice US coach then deleted all of the tweets, before posting an initial apology.
“Let me 1st praise god for exoneration fairness & freedom!” he wrote. “Secondly I sincerely apologize for my comments being taken so far out of context.
“I only intended on a Healthy exchange to help heal those who love me from the pain I had already caused from this. Please forgive me as it..
“…was your support that got me thru this to begin with. I’d never condone the harm of any women. Thank you.”
According to Hollywood Life, the star’s TV show The Good Life has now been cancelled by the US Cable Network.
