Cee-Lo Green

Cee-Lo Green will be cleared of charges that he sexually assaulted a woman last year, having first, she alleged, slipped ecstasy into her drink. Though he will, reports TMZ, still face felony charges for “furnishing” the woman with the drug.

The situation arose after the woman, who is known to have been dating Green for some months prior to the alleged assault, claimed Green had given her ecstasy illicitly, and that she’d then woken up naked in his bed with no memory of what’d happened.

Green denied the allegations and urged the police to fully investigate. And yesterday the LA County DA dropped the assault charges on the grounds of insufficient evidence.
