GRETNA, Louisiana (AP) – Cee Lo Green has been dropped as the headline act of an annual Louisiana music festival following his brush with the law.

The Grammy-winning singer, rapper and producer was scheduled to headline the Gretna Heritage Festival in Gretna, Louisiana, Sunday, October 5. Festival officials said in a news release yesterday that he’ll be replaced by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.

Green pleaded no contest last week to one felony count of furnishing ecstasy to a woman during a 2012 dinner in Los Angeles. He was sentenced to probation and community service.

Green’s subsequent comments via Twitter prompted festival organisers to drop him.

Green left the NBC show The Voice after he was charged.
