A police report detailing Cee's March arrest hit the Internet in early April.
Lebrun, known as "Mister Cee" on Hot 97, was nabbed along with Lawrence Campbell, 20, according to a criminal complaint sworn by Officer Lindsay Agard. The cop reported spotting Campbell (who used the name "Brooke-Lynn Pinklady" on his just-deleted Facebook page) "manipulating" Lebrun's "exposed, naked, and erect penis" with his "mouth and lips in an up-and-down motion consistent with oral sex." The duo was collared March 30 in a car parked on Manhattan's far West Side, two blocks from the Holland Tunnel. (The Smoking Gun)
Following the report, Cee's accomplice Brooke-Lynn aka Pink Lady defended his image and denied the allegations.
"I kinda just wanted to set the record straight and let everybody know that nothing, indeed, happened in that car," Brooklyn said in a self recorded video. "I feel like it's an Internet blog that got totally out of hand. A lot of things I read are just totally not true about me and my character. I'm not a transsexual, I'm a drag queen...I feel like the media in a whole has made me out to be this person, I feel just to get at him for some reason or to get a story. It's definitely not true. I'm definitely not a prostitute. I'm not, in any way, shape or form. I don't do things like that. I don't have sex for money. I don't need to have sex for money. I make enough money on my own...I feel like people, nowadays, will do anything and everything for money. This whole thing I feel like just a big a** entertainment scheme. I don't understand why I was brought into it." (YouTube)
In addition to receiving support from rap star 50 Cent, Mobb Deep's Prodigy said he had Cee's back no matter what really happened.
"I'm just hearing what people saying, and radio, so I really don't have that much of an opinion about it," Capital P explained in an interview. "But to each his own man, if it's really like that. It sounds crazy to me, like Cee is my n*gga. We f*ck with Mister Cee. That n*gga loves Mobb Deep and always shows us love, and plays our music all the time on the radio. He's one of the only ones that does that. It's few of them, and he's one of the main ones. So regardless of what, that n*gga shows us love, and we're going to show him love back. He's always going to get new music from us. That n*gga call, we always going to pick up like 'What's up? You good?' If he wants to do a party, whatever. Whatever Mister Cee wants to do, we f*ck with Mister Cee. That's what it is." (Complex)
