According to TMZ, “The Voice” judge and Hip-Hop singer, Cee-Lo has been charged with sexual battery in L.A., but denies the charges. Sources involved in the case represent that Cee Lo is on tape, repeatedly apologizing and referencing MDMA. YIKES! :(

Via TMZ.com:

Cee Lo Green is the target of an LAPD sexual battery investigation, TMZ has learned … but the singer is adamant he did NOTHING wrong.

Law enforcement sources tell us … a woman recently filed a police report with the LAPD, accusing “The Voice” judge — real name Thomas DeCarlo Callaway — of a sexual assault.

Our sources say detectives have already visited a restaurant in Downtown Los Angeles in connection with the case and questioned several employees, including the manager. We do not know if the alleged incident occurred at the restaurant.

The LAPD is mum on the identity of the alleged victim, when and where the incident allegedly occurred, and what Cee Lo allegedly did.

Cee Lo tells TMZ he categorically denies ANY wrongdoing. In fact, the singer says he hasn’t been to the restaurant in question in 3 months … and insists, “Nothing ever happened there or anywhere else.”

We also spoke with a source who is constantly with Cee Lo … who tells us, “I have never seen Cee Lo act in a physical way toward anybody.”

The investigation is in its infancy … no charges have been filed and the case has not been referred to prosecutors.

WHOA! :(

UPDATED:

The woman who filed a police report accusing Cee Lo of sexual battery secretly recorded a conversation with the singer, and sources involved in the case tell TMZ … Cee Lo admitted slipping her a drug and then having sex with her — something the singer denies.

The woman has told cops … Cee Lo took her to a downtown L.A. restaurant in July. They had a drink and she says she remembers nothing after that. The woman claims the next thing she knew she was lying naked in a bed and Cee Lo was in the room.

We’re told the woman, who does not live in California, almost immediately went to her local law enforcement agency and reported the incident. The matter was eventually referred to the LAPD.

Sources tell us … LAPD detectives had the woman make a “pretext call” — a call in which someone baits the other party into acknowledging a crime or other misdeed — and it was recorded.

Sources involved in the case represent to TMZ … Cee Lo is on tape, repeatedly apologizing and referencing MDMA (Ecstasy) — though he does not specifically say he put it in her drink. Sources say Cee Lo told her he thought the drug would help them have an exciting time together. For the record, MDMA generally does not render people unconscious.

Sources connected with Cee Lo scoff at the claim, saying if the tape contained such admissions Cee Lo would already be under arrest.

As we first reported … detectives went to the restaurant last week to determine if employees saw anything unusual between Cee Lo and the woman.

And we’re told … LAPD detectives will refer the matter to the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office when the investigation is completed.

Sources connected to Cee Lo tell us … the accuser went to a civil lawyer BEFORE going to police and demanded money from the singer to make the whole thing go away. Other sources tell us a different story — that her lawyer called Cee Lo’s manager to find out if the singer had any communicable diseases and never made any money demands.

Our Cee Lo sources say the manager shut the lawyer down and that’s when she went to cops. Other sources say she called the cops BEFORE her lawyer called Cee Lo’s manager.
