CeeLo's PAST

CeeLo Green seems to be a pretty cool dude. But it wasn’t always that way.

RadorOnline.com is claim­ing that CeeLo threat­ened his wife back in 2001, which even­tu­ally led to his arrest for dis­or­derly conduct.

The 36 year-old singer was arrested in July 2001 after an inci­dent in which CeeLo smashed the win­dows of their Jaguar with a wooden statue dur­ing an argu­ment, lead­ing his wife Christina John­son to call the police.

He spent two days in jail and pled no con­test to the sin­gle charge and was put on 12 months pro­ba­tion, ordered to undergo domes­tic vio­lence coun­sel­ing and ran­dom drug and alco­hol testing.

Wow.

In 2002 Christina described her hus­band as “a really good man with a sweet heart,” but their mar­riage of four years even­tu­ally fell apart and she filed for divorce in 2004, claim­ing “men­tal and phys­i­cal cruelty.”

CeeLo says that music was the thing that saved him.

I was saved through my asso­ci­a­tion with music,” he said. “Music truly did calm a sav­age beast.”

Good to know that he turned his life around.
