You okay, CeeLo?
Cee-Lo Green, who you may know from such hits as “Forget You” and from his coaching on The Voice, experienced the reason Samsung recalled and discontinued its Galaxy Note 7.
Scary footage of the 42-year-old rapper talking on his phone in a studio shows his phone literally exploding while he talks on it. Fire is visible and CeeLo falls to the ground, where he lays motionless on the floor. The video then abruptly ends.
CeeLo has not commented on the video, leaving some Twitter users to question if the footage is real – or if it’s even him. The type of phone being used has not been confirmed, although many outlets say it was the Galaxy, which was recalled in September of this year for overheating and combusting.
R&B artist Omarion tweeted to CeeLo, “Sooo manyyyy prayers & light to you brother!!!! I [prayer hands emoji] your hearing is ok!!!”
Rob Lowe also commented on the situation, writing, “How can Elon Musk make a car that drives itself, but Samsung can’t make a phone that doesn’t explode in your face?”
Let us know how you’re doing, CeeLo!
The entertainer took to Facebook Live to share that he was doing okay. He also thanked fans for their concern.
