Rapper Ceelo Green has assured his fans he’s fine after fake footage showing a cellphone exploding in his face circulated on social media.

He took to Facebook Live on Saturday after a surveillance-style clip showing him collapsing to the floor after his phone burst into flames went viral.

The black-and-white video was reportedly posted by rapper Philly Chase on Instagram on Saturday, showing video from inside a music studio and Green sitting at a chair.

After several people left, the singer is then seen picking up a cellphone and chatting on it while swivelling in the chair before an explosion is seen, causing him to fall to the ground.

“I just want to let everybody know that I am alive, and I’m well and I’m ok,” Green said. “Truthfully, I’m really upset that anybody had to be emotionally disturbed by what they saw today.”

“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 on Facebook.

“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.”

Rapper Chase, who was the first to share the fake clip, told BuzzFeed News he was sent the video by anonymous text on Saturday morning. He said he was not and had not been working with Green on any projects, and said he was not involved in the creation of the video.
