Sorry Cee Lo Green fans, the singer told Ellen DeGeneres that he's done with "The Voice."

In an episode of her show that airs today, Green said "I'm not coming back at all."

Green has been a coach on four of the show's five seasons. Season 6 starts Monday, but Green is not listed as a judge. Instead, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will be joined by Shakira and Usher.

Green made the announcement after joining Lionel Richie on "Ellen." Richie was promoting his tour, which Green has just joined.

"I'm going to continue my relationship with NBC," Green continued. "I have a television show development deal with them as well and hopefully some other talk show opportunities for later in the year. But yeah, I'm going to miss 'The Voice,' too. I'm not coming back, guys."

He added, "I don't want to wear out my welcome there. I have so many other things I want to do. I haven't released an album in four years. I'm almost done with an album. Music, you know."

Green is still dealing with a charge that he allegedly furnished ecstasy to a woman when the two had dinner in 2012. He has plead not guilty.
