Cee Lo is standing accused of a serious crime against a woman in Los Angeles. The unnamed female claims the 38-year-old singer drugged her with MDMA (X) during a dinner date this past July. She says she remembers nothing but waking up naked next to Green afterwards. While details remain scarce, sources say detectives have gone back to the restaurant in question to speak with the staff who were present on the night of the alleged incident. The L.A. County District Attorney’s Office is said to be joining the LAPD in the ongoing investigation. TMZ reports:
1. The woman does not live in LA but went her local law enforcement agency and reported the incident. The matter was eventually referred to the LAPD.
2. 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.
3. Cee Lo is on tape, repeatedly apologizing and referencing MDMA (Ecstasy) — though he does not specifically say he put it in her drink.

And we’re told … LAPD detectives will refer the matter to the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office when the investigation is completed.
Sources connected to Cee Lo tell us … the accuser went to a civil lawyer BEFORE going to police and demanded money from the singer to make the whole thing go away. Other sources tell us a different story — that her lawyer called Cee Lo’s manager to find out if the singer had any communicable diseases and never made any money demands.
Our Cee Lo sources say the manager shut the lawyer down and that’s when she went to cops. Other sources say she called the cops BEFORE her lawyer called Cee Lo’s manager.
