CeeLo Green said he is fine after a video appearing to show an exploding cell phone in the singer’s hand circulated online on Saturday.

“I just want to let everybody know that I am alive, and I’m well, and I’m OK,” he said in a Facebook live video on Saturday night. “Truthfully, I’m really upset that anybody had to be emotionally disturbed by what they saw today.”

Green said the surveillance-style video showing the singer collapsing after his cell phone exploded was actually part of a project he doing called “Gnarly Davidson.”

“It’s supposed to set up and introduce the new character identity, you know what I’m saying,” he said. “Forgive me, y’all, I’m still going to release the music though. But first and foremost, for everybody that love me and care about me, I just want to say that I’m OK.”
