In a tearful interview on Hot 97, DJ Mister Cee admitted that he has had oral sex with transgender men, and solicited transgender prostitutes in the past, but hasn’t since his arrest in May.

On Sept. 11, an audio clip surfaced from popular male blogger, Bimbo Winehouse, where a voice was heard that was allegedly DJ Mister Cee, soliciting sex from him, agreeing to pay $100 for sex. The famed DJ announced his resignation that day — however, he came back on air on Sept. 12 for a new interview.

Is Mr. Cee Resigning From Hot 97 After Prostitution Scandal?

In May 2013, Mister Cee, whose full name is Calvin LeBrun was arrested for soliciting a prostitute, and admitted on Hot 97 he had “an addiction…to prostitution.”

On the 11th, Mister Cee said on air that the video surfaced is from a year ago, and later in the segment announced he was retiring. Shortly after, General Manager and Senior Vice President of Hot 97, Alexandra Cameron released the following statement:

Due to some personal circumstances that have become public, after 20 years of service, Mister 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. Moments ago, he officially signed off, on the air and will finish out his last show today on September 11, 2013, an already sad day for New York City.

Mister Cee took to twitter, writing: “I announced my resignation today from the job I loved to do at Hot 97 , please understand I never intended to let NY/NJ/CT all my fans down.”

Mister Cee: I’m Not Resigning

However, he came back on air the next day to clear up any questions that had not yet been answered. During that segment, he said that after his arrest in May, he was no longer soliciting transgender prostitutes:

I was already in motion of repairing that and trying to move better as far as what I did in my private life. The situation that happened in May with the undercover male officer, everything that I told you back then was the God’s honest truth. I went to court Monday, and the charges were dropped. I have not been involved in any type of activity since probably the beginning of the year.

So, after coming clean on what he had done, he also announced that he is returning to the show after program director Ebro Darden asked him to.

HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Mister Cee’s situation — do you think he should resign or stick with Hot 97? Listen to his interview below and let us know.

Oh jeeeze looweez…hip hop is no more educated than before all this! This article is ignorant from the headlne. Transgender men are human beings born female and transition of being male or better said have always identified as being so. so… Guess how transgender women are defined. but even still, Mr. “Im still homophobic, but in denial” Cee petitioned neither. He has solicited gay MEN who at the time have been dressed in drag. Just because a man is gay or even dresses in drag doesn’t mean HE denounces his manhood. He still identifies as male or a man! Trangender women on the other hand are insulted when you refer to them as men just because we cant escape the mental gender box we’ve all been taught in. Anyway, at correct your headline so you don’t read as a total ignoramus!

Be who you are, but know that actions have consequences. Prostitution is not a victimless crime. I’m not sure what your morality clause at your publicly traded station consists of, but breaking the law should be grounds for termination. As for your marriage, well, that’s between you and your God.

Would you want him back to work if he was a teacher? If not then why should he be allowed back on public radio exposing children to his perverted behavior?

Errr…How do you expose children to perverted behavior over the radio unless you actually say something perverted? Not to mention, what in THE heck does his personal sex life have to do with his job? NOTHING.

Oh please!! “do I consider myself gay, no”….still in denial. He needs to just accept what he is, and stop soliciting prostitutes. He should feel right at home, I’m sure he could out half of the rappers and “street” dudes in NY.

The Bible teaches… ‘We will know them by their fruit’. His fruit looked fruity (very gay). Tell me again why this is new news AND why he’d consider resigning? We knew…
