Ceelo Green is speaking out, after video footage of the singer went viral of him collapsing onto the floor after a cellphone appeared to explode in his hand.
On Saturday, he took to Facebook releasing a video explaining that the footage was fake and was shot for a new project he’s doing called ‘Gnarly Davidson.’ He says,
I just want to let everybody know that I am alive and I’m well and I’m OK. Truthfully, I’m really upset that anybody had to be emotionally disturbed by what they saw today.
Green, 42, explained that the clip was
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. Forgive me, y’all. I’m still going to release the music, though. I just want to let you know that I’m OK. OK? And I just want to thank everybody for their love and support and concern.
He added that he was having a
very difficulty day dealing with everything.
Here’s footage of him explaining the situation.
