Mr. Cee NOT Resigning From HOT 97 After Prostitution Scandal

It was barely 24 hours ago that Mr. Cee resigned from his post as resident DJ of Hot 97 amid a prostitution scandal. But this morning, Hot 97 announced that Mr. Cee, otherwise known as Calvin LeBrun, would be returning to his radio show at the request of the station's program director. This came after a tearful interview in which Mr. Cee talked about his checkered past and his obligations to his family. During the interview, Mr. Cee admitted that he has engaged in oral sex with transgender women. He reiterated, however, that he doesn't consider himself gay. This comes after a video that emerged yesterday, on which Mr. Cee was recorded soliciting a transgender prostitute.
This is not the first time Mr. Cee has been in the public eye for engaging with transgender prostitutes. He was arrested both in March of 2011 and in May of this year for solicitation. During this morning's interview, Mr. Cee admitted to lying about having oral sex with transgender prostitutes. "It did take a video for me to say this, because I have been in denial with this for a very long time." He went on to state that he has never had intercourse with another man, that the video was recorded last year, and that he stopped soliciting prostitutes after his May arrest. Listen to the whole interview below. (AllHipHop)
