That video of CeeLo Green's phone exploding in his face isn't 'real'


UPDATE: According to the star, the footage was just part of a new music project he's been working on. 

"I just want to let everybody know that I am alive, and I'm well and I'm OK," Green said. "Truthfully, I'm really upset that anybody had to be emotionally disturbed by what they saw today."

ORIGINAL STORY: Singer CeeLo Green could have been a victim of an exploding phone. 

Recently-surfaced footage supposedly shows the former "Voice" coach talking on his cellphone in a studio when the phone explodes right next to his face, reports the New York Daily News. Green falls on the floor just before the video cuts out. 

There's no timestamp on the footage, so it remains unclear when the incident actually took place. The user who posted the video also doesn't specify how it was obtained. 

Video posted to Instagram shows CeeLo's cell phone injuring the singer. 

The news of the malfunction quickly led to jokes being spread online. 

Some other celebrities are wishing the singer a speedy recovery.
