Cee Lo Sort of Apologizes for Those Rape Tweets

He returned to Twitter to say he was sorry for the comments that were "attributed" to him.

Cee Lo Green has returned to Twitter following a series of controversial tweets on the subject of rape.

He deleted his account yesterday (September 2), as well as the offending comments.

"I truly and deeply apologize for the comments attributed to me on Twitter," Green wrote upon returning to Twitter. "Those comments were idiotic, untrue and not what I believe."

Deleted tweets from the 39-year-old said: "People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!", and added: "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent."

He later apologized for his posts "being taken so far out of context" and insisted: "I only intended on a healthy exchange to help heal those who love me from the pain I had already caused from this. Please forgive me..."

The former Voice coach recently pleaded no contest to charges of supplying a woman with ecstasy during a dinner date back in 2012, maintaining his innocence and accepting a plea deal.

Rape charges relating to the case failed to be filed due to a lack of evidence, with Green's lawyer claiming the pair had "consensual relations".

However, he was sentenced to three years of formal probation and 360 hours of community service on the ecstasy charge on Friday (August 29), upon formally entering his no contest plea.

Superior Court Judge Mark Young has also ordered Green to attend 52 Alcoholics Anonymous/Narcotics Anonymous meetings, and he will return to court on March 2, 2015 for a progress report.
