CeeLo Green sent an important message to his scores of fans: “I am alive and I am well and I’m OK.”
Fans of the former “The Voice” judge flew into a panic when security footage surfaced Saturday of a cell phone exploded as he held it to his face, causing him to fall unconscious to the ground.
As it turned out, it was all for show and he took to Facebook Live to explain:
“Hey y’all, listen. I just want to let everybody know that I am alive and I am well and I’m OK. Truthfully, I’m really upset that anybody had to be emotionally disturbed by what they saw today. Actually what you saw today was a clip from a smaller video that we were shooting for a new project that I’m doing called Gnarly Davidson. It’s supposed to set up and introduce the new character identity. I’m still going to release the music, but first and foremost to everybody that love me and care about me, I just wanted to let you know that I’m OK…”
What was all the commotion about? This:
While a few fans weren’t thrilled with the gag…
Jimbo Johnston Junior · Not a scratch on him? I think we got Kanye’d.
Theresa TeeJaye Jordan · Thank God. Dude don’t do that anymore. I was praying and everything. Glad you’re good though.
… Most were happy to just hear he was okay. Here’s a look at just a sprinkling of the more-than 1,000 Facebook posts that he received afterwards:
