Cee Lo Green was arrested in 2001 after threatening then-wife Christina Johnson | Mail Online

He has been frank when talking about his troubled past before, but it seems Cee Lo Green kept a dark secret under wraps.

The singer and coach on The Voice was arrested in July 2001 for allegedly threatening his then-wife Christina Johnson.

The 37-year-old was then rearrested for skipping his court appearance two months later.

Cee Lo, whose real name is Thomas DeCarlo Gallaway, had been living with Christina in Fayetteville, a suburb in Atlanta, Georgia.

According to court documents obtained by Star magazine and Radar Online, the pair, who married in March 2000, got into a dispute in July 2001 and Christina called the police ‘in reasonable apprehension of receiving violent injury’.

Cee Lo had brandished a wooden statue as the couple argued outside and when Christina went into the house, she hears sounds of breaking glass.

Later it was discovered that Cee Lo had smashed the windows of the couple’s Jaguar before leaving.

Two days later, the Forget You singer was arrested on misdemeanor charges of ‘simple assault (family violence)’ and ‘disorderly conduct’.

While he was released that day after setting $2,800 bail, the star failed to show up to his September court date and was arrested again two days after that.

CeeLo then spent two days in jail before pleading ‘no contest’ to his disorderly conduct charge and being placed on probation for 12 months.

He also had to attend domestic violence counselling and was subjected to random drug and alcohol testing.

    WOW, I can’t believe the haters. We all have a past, times/moments we want to forget. But the enemy/haters had to bring this up when he is doing something good and doing a good job. Head up Cee Lo, keep doing what ur doing. Whoever took precious time to DIG this up don’t take your hand off the closet door, or ALL your skeltons will come falling out. Karma is… well you know!

    I agree, what a haters! Drama queen probably added oil to the fire and tried for her 2 min fame… No comment. Arguments are everywhere, no reason to make such a big deal out of it. There is nothing recent to write about that you have to dig almost decade back?

    CeeLo he’s such a sweetheart hard to believe he would do any of these things. I’m not saying he didn’t do them just saying after watching him on The Voice and seeing how sweet he is it’s hard to believe that CeeLo would do this that’s all. But I understand everyone has a past, and I’m not going to hold it against CeeLo at least he got help for his temper and he’s a changed man gotta give him some credit at least he opened his eyes and realized that he even had a problem unlike some people who wouldn’t even bother with getting help.
