[A] 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.
So we heard this story a few days ago, but I didn’t pay it too much attention because ugh, Cee Lo, and how stupid and self-involved does one have to be to rape a woman, because first, how stupid is that, and second, DUH you’re famous and raped women don’t always keep their mouths shut when they’re raped and you’re not exactly a nobody from Nobodysville. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
And illegal, too! Did I mention that forcibly having sex with a woman via drugging her to the point of unconsciousness is illegal, too? Because, you know, that’s a crime. Unlike his Thursday Night Football intro, but that should be a crime as well.
