Cee Lo Green reveals tough childhood

Cee Lo Green has admitted he endured a tough childhood.

The chart topper revealed that he lost his father at the age of two and his mother died two years after she was paralysed in a car crash when he was just 18.

Green told The Daily Mirror he suffered from depression as a result but is adamant music helped channel his anger. 

'I was enraged. I was disgruntled, without an outlet,' he said. 'I was aggressive and I was pretty efficient with it - I took pride in that ability.'  

"Survival is a skill. I'm a soldier, a lover and a fighter,' he continued.

'My skin is a little thicker because of where I've come from. I could have gone comfortably numb a long time ago, but I was saved because of my association with music. Music truly did calm a savage beast.'

The 'Forget You' man is currently in the middle of a UK tour.
