When Cee Lo Green went on Ellen this Wednesday to announce that he was leaving The Voice, it seemed as though things were amicable. Green said he was leaving to pursue other projects while the networks released a statement thanking him for his work.
But according to The Wrap, things aren’t as snuggly as they seem. Jethro Nededog reports that NBC executives were blindsided by his announcement to quit the show, but the singer did so as to avoid being fired by the network.
CeeLo Green went rogue when he decided to announce his exit from NBC’s “The Voice” on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” which released video of the singer’s announcement on Tuesday evening.
Green’s decision to quit was a move to avoid being fired by NBC and producer Mark Burnett Productions, an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap.
NBC got in touch with The Wrap to state that they weren’t blindsided by the move, which seems to suggest that this is all scandalous gossip.
We can’t be sure of the real reasons behind Cee Lo Green deciding to leave The Vocie, but all the matters is that the judge is not coming back next season and fans of the show will be looking forward to hearing who his replacement will be.
