Was CeeLo Green the latest victim of an exploding phone?
A video showing surveillance footage of a man resembling the singer and former The Voice coach went viral Saturday. In the clip, the man sits in a recording studio and talks on his phone. It then blows up, in a blinding explosion, and the person falls off his chair and onto the floor.
CeeLo has not commented and the video’s authenticity has not been confirmed. It is also unclear when it was recorded.
But the clip still spurred fans, as well as fellow R&B star Omarion to post messages of concern on Twitter.
“@CeeLoGreen Sooo manyyyy prayers & light to you brother!!!! I [pray] your hearing is ok!!!” he wrote.
@CeeLoGreen I hope and pray you are okay. Just watched a graphic video

The video also spurred “Samsung” to trend on Twitter. The company had earlier this year recalled its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones and permanently halted production of the devices out of safety concerns, following reports of them exploding and catching fire.
