The female accuser that claims “The Voice” judge Cee Lo Green sexually assaulted her is alleging the singer gave her ecstasy before the sex attack.
The woman, whose name has not been released, claimed she recorded a conversation with Cee Lo, real name Thomas DeCarlo Calloway, in which the “F--- You” singer allegedly admitting to giving her ecstasy and having sex with her, TMZ reported.
The accuser recently filed a police report claiming Cee Lo sexually assaulted her, although the alleged encounter occurred several months ago, the gossip website reported. It’s unclear why she delayed in making the report.
She claims the singer invited her to dinner at a restaurant in downtown Los Angeles the day of the alleged incident.
Cee Lo adamantly denied the accusations and said he hasn’t been to the restaurant where the alleged sexual assault occurred in three months.
"Nothing ever happened there or anywhere else,” “The Voice” judge said.
A source close to the singer backed up Cee Lo’s account.
"I have never seen Cee Lo act in a physical way toward anybody,” the source told TMZ.
The accused alleged Cee Lo gave her MDMA, also known as ecstasy, and the recording reportedly indicates the singer admitting to providing the woman with the drug. The woman claimed ecstasy was slipped into her drink, but Cee Lo does not explicitly say that in the recording, TMZ reported.
Sources close to Cee Lo dispute the credibility of the tape, arguing that the singer would have been arrested by now if there was damning information on the recording.
Detectives with the Los Angeles Police Department interviewed employees of the unnamed restaurant, but it’s unclear whether they gave information helpful to the investigation.
There are conflicting reports about how the accuser handled the matter.
Some sources told TMZ that she first filed a civil lawsuit against Cee Lo and demanded money from the singer before going to the police, while others said her attorney called Cee Lo’s people to find out if he had any “communicable diseases” but didn’t ask for cash.
Some insiders told the gossip website that Cee Lo’s manager turned down the accuser’s attorney and that’s when she went to the cops. Others said the accuser went straight to the police with her complaint.
