CeeLo Green Admits To Robbing People Before Becoming Famous And Getting Confronted By Victims
CeeLo Green opens up on robbing people and riding trains, but said that if he became famous, he would have to confront the individuals he had stolen from.
Those “before they were famous” stories frequently include tales about celebrities’ odd jobs prior to becoming famous. For some, however, making money meant scamming, stealing, or engaging in some other nefarious activity, as was the case with CeeLo Green. The famous artist recently talked about how he used to rob people in his youth, and how once he became famous. Several of his victims approached him to remind him that he had stolen from them.
“I was robbing people by myself. You have to understand, I didn’t have any friends and I was not in school. My mom did not know. I dropped out of school, so I was fronting like I was [still] going,” he told Page Six. “So I would leave in the morning when school started at the same time every day. I used to ride the train all day. I was like 13, 14, 15 then. I was young.”
“I used to take people’s shoes and take people’s jackets and stuff like that. I would hang out at the train station and rob people. This was like ’87, ’88. I was the guy taking people’s Jordans, unfortunately,” Green added. ” ‘You took my shoes at Hightower station,’ which is a MARTA train station in Atlanta, Georgia. And I said, ‘Sir, I’m so sorry. That was so long ago. I was so young and ignorant. Please forgive me.’ Then he said, ‘I already forgive you. I forgive you 1,000 times.’ He said, ‘Your music let me know that it was an intervention in your life and healing. I was able to heal from your healing.'”
