Are we still watching “The Voice”? Im kind over the fact I’ve yet to hear or see from “the winner” after the show wraps.

Anyway it seems Cee Lo’s looming legal matter of date rape accusations were becoming to much.

Per The Wrap:From The Wrap 

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.

A second individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap that NBC wanted to announce Green’s departure mutually with the singer but that Green decided he wanted to to do it on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” His exit arrives after a touch-and-go fifth season, which led to at least one “meltdown,” as the insider described it.

Burnett had to spend a lot of time with the emotional Green last season and on at least two occasions, the “Forget You” singer had to leave the set.

The general belief among the production was that he was feeling the weight of a legal case that could result in prison time.
