The woman accusing Cee Lo Green of sexual battery allegedly secretly recorded a conversation with the singer, during which Green admitted slipping her Ecstasy and then having sex with her, sources told TMZ.

The alleged victim told police Green took her to a downtown L.A. restaurant in July. They had a drink and she says she remembers nothing after that. The woman claims the next thing she knew she was lying naked in a bed and Cee Lo was in the room.

TMZ said the woman, who does not live in California, almost immediately went to her local law enforcement agency and reported the incident. The matter was referred to Los Angeles Police

Sources told TMZ Los Angeles detectives had the woman make a "pretext call" -- a call in which someone baits the other party into acknowledging a crime -- and it was recorded. Green allegedly apologizes and refers to MDMA (Ecstasy), though he does not specifically say he put it in her drink. Sources say Green told her he thought the drug would help them have an exciting time together. MDMA, which is a stimulant, generally does not render people unconscious.

Police went to the restaurant last week to determine if employees saw anything unusual between Green and the woman. Sources close to Green reportedly told TMZ the accuser went to a civil lawyer before going to police and demanded money from the singer to make the allegations go away.

Other sources told TMZ said the woman's lawyer called Green's manager to find out if the singer had any communicable diseases, but that she did not make any money demands.
