CeeLo Green appears to be the latest person injured by an exploding cell phone.
A clip of surveillance footage surfaced online Saturday showing the musician spending time in his recording studio. Halfway through the video, the former Voice coach is shown speaking on his phone when it explodes in his face. He immediately falls out of his chair and onto the floor.
CeeLo has not publicly commented on the video and it's unclear if the video is authentic or when it was recorded. There’s also been no word on the severity of his injuries.
A representative for CeeLo did not immediately respond to REVOLT TV's request for comment.

The video was first published on Instagram by the account I Am Philly Chase, but the user hasn't disclosed exactly where he obtained the clip.
As the surveillance footage went viral, fans and fellow musician Omarion wished CeeLo a speedy recovery while others remained skeptical about the video's authenticity.

Hearing CeeLo was hurt but then remembering he put ecstasy in his date's drink with the intent to rape her. pic.twitter.com/vnpiyc8Kpy— conz (@radicalhearts) December 17, 2016
Reports of overheating cell phones have become commonplace this year. Back in September, Samsung was forced to issue a worldwide recall of its Galaxy Note 7 model following reports of the phone’s battery exploding, affecting approximately 2.5 million smartphones. While social media users and blogs have joked that a Samsung device likely injured CeeLo, it hasn’t been confirmed what type of cell phone is exploding in the video.
