LOS ANGELES – A judge has removed CeeLo Green from supervised probation in a felony drug case that involved him giving a woman ecstasy during a 2012 dinner.
Superior Court Judge David Herriford ended the singer’s supervised probation on Wednesday during a brief hearing in Los Angeles.
The Grammy-winning singer pleaded no contest in August 2014 to furnishing a woman with ecstasy during a dinner date. He was ordered to serve 45 days of community service and attend 52 drug and alcohol counseling sessions.
A probation report recommended that Green, whose real name is Thomas Callaway, no longer report to a probation officer.
His attorney Blair Berk said the singer received an “exceptionally positive” final report from probation officials.
Green did not attend the hearing.
