Cee Lo Green has issued a statement following allegations that he drugged and sexually assaulted a woman over the summer.

The singer has said in the statement that the claims are "despicable, untrue, and deeply hurtful."

TMZ revealed that a police report had been filed against the singer, with the alleged victim claiming that he drugged her at a sushi restaurant in Los Angeles with ecstasy and then she woke up naked with Green, remembering nothing from the previous evening.

Rolling Stone has printed a statement on behalf of Green concerning the case, which reads:

"Given that the matter is under investigation, we obviously cannot speak as freely as we'd like. What we can say is that these allegations are despicable, untrue, and deeply hurtful to Cee Lo, his children and his family."

It continues: "We are confident that when all the facts come out, it will be clear that if anyone was victimised here, it was Cee Lo. In the meantime, Cee Lo is deeply grateful for the overwhelming support he has received from his fans, his friends, and his colleagues."
