The surveillance footage was a staged clip from an upcoming project, the singer told fans Saturday via Facebook Live.

CeeLo Green has come forward to confirm that he is fine after a video that seemingly showed a cellphone exploding in his face circulated Saturday. The singer posted a Facebook Live update Saturday night.

"I just want to let everybody know that I am alive, and I'm well and I'm OK," he said in the clip.

"Truthfully, I'm really upset that anybody had to be emotionally disturbed by what they saw today," Green continued.

A surveillance-style video of the incident showed him collapsing after his cellphone burst into flames. According to the singer, the footage was just part of a new music project.

"Actually, what you saw today was a clip from a smaller video that we were shooting for a new project I'm doing called Gnarly Davidson. It's supposed to set up and introduce the new character identity, you know what I'm saying?" Green explained.

"I'm still gonna release the music, though," he added. "But first and foremost, for everybody that love me and care about me, I just want to say that I'm OK ... I just want to thank everybody for their love and support and concern."
