Yesterday, a video purporting to show a smartphone exploding in CeeLo Green’s hand and knocking him out of his chair surfaced on the internet. The whole thing seemed pretty suspicious, and now, as Complex reports, Green has confirmed that it was just some dumb hoax to hype up some dumb project.
“I just want to let everybody know that I am alive, and I’m well, and I’m OK,” he assured the world on Facebook Live last night. “Truthfully, I’m really upset that anybody had to be emotionally disturbed by what they saw today. What you saw today was a clip from a smaller video that we were shooting for a new project I’m doing called Gnarly Davidson. It’s supposed to set up and introduce the new character identity…I want to just thank everybody for their love and support and concern…I’ve had a very difficult day dealing with everything.”
Yeah, I’m sure you’ve had a very difficult day dealing with pretending to be hurt by an exploding phone, CeeLo. Watch both videos in question below.
