New York’s HOT 97 DJ Mister Cee, Calvin LeBrun, has finally come clean with the public. Mister Cee has been dogged by rumors for years that he’s solicited sexual favors from transsexual prostitutes.
Earlier this summer he was arrested when an undercover male officer busted him for “patronizing a prostitute.” The DJ denied the allegations and accused the NYPD of setting him up. In April of 2011, Cee pleaded guilty after he was caught engaged in oral sex with a male prostitute.
The scandal came to a head when a drag queen named Bimbo Winehouse shared an audio in which he alleges Mister Cee solicited him for sexual favors, although none was given or received. Hours later the DJ resigned from his 20-year post at HOT 97.
Alexandra Cameron, SVP/General Manager of HOT 97, released a statement:
“Due to some personal circumstances that have become public, after 20 years of service, Mr Cee has chosen to resign. We feel that this is in the best interest of both HOT 97 and Cee’s personal well-being. While we do not endorse the alleged activities, he is clearly facing a personal dilemma that is for him and only him to comment on. We are saddened by his departure; his contributions here at HOT 97 were great and we know him as a friend, a caring individual and significant hip hop advocate. We wish Mr Cee the best and will always consider him a family member of HOT 97.”
By Thursday morning it appeared Mister Cee and HOT 97 executives had a change of heart. Cee sat down with Ebro on the HOT 97 Morning Show and laid it all out. Check out excerpts of the interview below via theybf.com:
On having sex with transsexuals
Have I lied about getting head in a car from a transsexual? Yes. I have been in denial about this for a very long time. Do I consider myself gay? No. I have gotten fellatio from transvestites. And that’s as far as it went. I never had actual sexual intercourse with another man. Or vice versa.
I know that I love women. But occasionally I get the urge to have fellatio with a transsexual, a man that looks like a woman.
On the video that was just released By Bimbo Winehouse as proof of his activities with transsexuals
The person I was in the car with, I know exactly who that person is. I don’t know why he would want to harm me like this. That video is an old video, probably like the end of last year. (Bimbo Winehouse claims the video was taken 2 weeks ago.)
On his fear of telling the truth
Am I still going to be looked at the same way? Am I still going to be…. [breaks down on air] My whole fear of this whole thing of what I’ve been going through–is my family. I don’t talk about my family much.
I wonder what the streets are going to say. Will people still book me?
On reconsidering resigning
[Breaks down again] Right now I just really feel like I let y’all down. I don’t know if I can stand back in this studio and be the same person. I just don’t know.
On getting help
I don’t look at what I do as a problem, it’s a problem that affects the people around me. I was already in motion of repairing that and trying to move better for what I did in my private life. With the situation that happened in May with the undercover male officer, everything I told you was the God’s honest truth. I went to court Monday and the charges were dropped. I haven’t been involved in any type of activity since probably the beginning of the year.
It’s almost like the Anthony Wiener situation. You move forward and say what it is, then there’s an old text that comes. Like, am I going to have to keep answering to this?
