It appears that Cee Lo Green’s tenure on the hit NBC reality series The Voice is coming to an end. The music star announced on Wednesday that he will be leaving The Voice to pursue other projects he wants to do and to make sure he doesn’t wear out his welcome at the networks or with the show.
Cee Lo made the announcement official during a taping of Ellen, in which he told Ellen DeGeneres and her audience that he’s not returning to The Voice but is leaving on good terms.
“I’m going to continue my relationship with NBC. I have a television show development deal with them as well and hopefully some other talk show opportunities for later in the year. But yeah, I’m going to miss The Voice, too.”
Fans of The Voice will be sad to see Cee Lo leave, but he’s clearly leaving the door open for a return later on down the line. It seems to be a time consuming show, something that hinders the creativity of someone like Cee Lo.
Still, the separation seems to be amicable and the music star’s return to the show at a later date seems almost certain to happen.
