CeeLo Green's exploding mobile phone video 'was publicity stunt'

Overnight, a video featuring CeeLo Green holding a mobile phone as it exploded was shared across the internet alongside reports claiming the singer was knocked unconscious by the incident.

However, while numerous people were worried about Green for multiple hours, it turns out the whole thing was a publicity stunt for an upcoming musical project.

“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’,” he told fans via a Facebook Live video.

Green went on to apologise and confirm he is ‘alive and well’ despite the concerning reports published earlier in the day. Watch both the Facebook live apology and the exploding mobile phone video below.

CeeLo Green’s last record, Heart Blanche, was released in 2015, the singer having made sparse public appearances throughout 2016.

Green’s most prominent recent feature was on the Kendrick Lamar track "Untitled 06| 06.30.2014” on the EP Untitled Unmastered, a compilation of songs recorded during the To Pimp a Butterfly sessions.

There is currently no release date on Green's upcoming project but new music is expected imminently.
