Days after making tweeting controversial messages about the nature of rape, former "The Voice" coach Cee Lo green has issued an apology.

It all started Sunday, Aug. 31, when Green tweeted "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously." He then added, "People who have really been raped REMEMBER!" Green then temporarily deactivated his Twitter account and the news came that TBS was canceling his reality show, "The Good Life." 

Now Green has issued an apology, though it's a bit of a confusing one. In a tweet sent Tuesday night, Sept. 2, he writes, "I truly and deeply apologize for the comments attributed to me on Twitter. Those comments were idiotic, untrue and not what I believe."

The apology is rather clear, except the part where he labels the original tweets as "comments attributed to me." The messages came from his Twitter account, so chances are they were from him. However, it's possible someone else was in control of his account.
