Cee Lo Green, the ex-coach on The Voice, has met all the conditions of his probation related to felony drug charges early, according to court records. Green was required to do 360 hours of community service, attend 52 drug and alcohol counseling sessions and remain on probation for three years. During his court appearance on Monday, Green received a glowing review from his counselor, who talked about his humbleness and deep connection with military veterans.
The Daily News reports that Green completed 79 hours of service with the Volunteers of America working with homeless veterans and low-income senior citizens in a facility located in a part of downtown Los Angeles known as Skid Row.
His counselor, Dr. Betty Wyman, wrote in a report that Cee Lo’s experiences with the Volunteers of America made a powerful impression on the Grammy Award winning singer.
She was quoted in her report as saying, “He often becomes emotional when reporting the ‘plights’ of the vets we often discuss when his community services hours are completed. He shows up and demonstrates a genuine humbleness not often seen by artists that have achieved this type of success.”
It was also indicated in the report that Green completed an additional 72 hours of community service working with indigent musicians and attended 31 individual private counseling sessions.
Green, who originally appeared in court in August, pleaded no contest to giving a 33-year-old woman an ecstasy tablet while they were dining at a sushi restaurant in July 2012. According to Green’s attorney, Blair Berk, Green had consensual sex with the woman that evening. The woman reported Green to the authorities according to the Los Angeles Times and stated that she woke up naked in bed with the singer in a hotel room.
After two rounds of investigations, prosecutors declined to file any sex related charges, citing lack of evidence.
After Green plead no contest he took to his Twitter account and posted several messages. ABC News reports that one of those messages stated, “Women who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!”
Green later tweeted an apology, and the tweet was taken down, but his actions lead to cancellation of a reality show and several extra court appearances.
Sources say that Green acknowledged giving the young woman the drug in a phone conversation that she recorded after the incident, but denied the sexual assault allegations. His attorney says that Green had faith that once the district attorney found out the truth, those charges would be dropped.
Cee Lo is currently recording his new album according to his probation report.
