TBS’s CeeLo Green-starring reality series The Good Life will not be returning for a second season, a spokesperson for the U.S. net has confirmed to realscreen, as the musician (pictured) finds himself under fire over controversial comments made on Twitter.

A spokesperson for TBS confirmed that the show had not been renewed for a second season run,¬†although no clarification was offered as to exactly when the decision was made, or why. As of yesterday (September 2), TBS also appears to have also taken down the show’s official website.

The news comes as the former Voice coach has come under fire for comments made on Twitter, where he stated that “women who have really been raped remember.” The statement came after a court case ended Friday (September 29), at which he pleaded no contest to giving a woman the drug ecstasy in 2012.

Green has since apologized for his statements. “I truly and deeply apologize for the comments attributed to me on Twitter,” he Tweeted. “Those comments were idiotic, untrue and not what I believe.”

The Good Life was produced for TBS by Emerald TV Productions and Rogue Atlas Productions.
