This is worrying footage

This footage is all over the internet. At the present time we’re treating it with some caution.

The security video appears to show American performer, songwriter and record producer CeeLo Green collapse to the floor as his mobile phone explodes at his ear.

Various unsubstantiated reports suggest the device in question is a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 – the same model that has been discontinued and recalled due to various cases of the device overheating and catching alight.

Green came to international prominence as part of soul duo Gnarls Barkley, who had a hit single with ‘Crazy’, before having a huge solo hit with “Fuck/Forget You!”

We reiterate the footage has not been verified as of yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as we have more information.
