Former Hot 97 icon Mister Cee has stepped up to fully explain his resignation from the station and come clean about his addiction to transsexuals.
Cee acknowledged footage surfacing online this week of him with a cross-dresser and claimed that’s what it took to speak out.
“I am tired of trying to do something or be something that I’m not,” Cee said in an interview with the Hot 97 morning show. “I’m tired. I’m tired. Have I lied about getting sexual fellatio in a car with a transsexual? Yes. I have lied about that. I feel bad for the listeners that it did take a video for me to say this. I have been in denial for this for a very, very long time. A very long time. Now, the funny part of it, and I know I’m going to get hit with social media when I say this, but I’m going to say it anyway. Do I consider myself gay? No. I don’t consider myself gay. I do, I have gotten fellatio from transvestites and that’s as far as it went. I’ve never had actual sexual intercouse with another man and vice versa. That has never been done to me. I have had fellatio with a transsexual person. The person who I was in the car with, I knew exactly who that person is. That’s neither he or there.” (Hot 97)
He also explained what forced him to keep his sexual addiction secret and said he would reconsider his resignation by appearing on the station at noon for his daily mix show.
“That video is an old video, maybe like, probably like the end of last year,” Cee added. “[Cries] My whole fear with this whole thing of what I’ve been going through is, most importantly, my family. I don’t talk about my family too much but my whole thing was really about making sure my family was going to be all right. When I tell you, ‘I’m going to be all right.’ I’m going to be all right. … I have to think about [coming back to Hot 97]. I’m being honest – I gotta deal with that first before I can get the bridge that I know and I love, which is being on this radio.” (Hot 97)
Hot 97’s general manager Alexandra Cameron confirmed personal matters related to Cee ultimately forced the deejay to announce a resignation yesterday.
“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. 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.” – Alexandra Cameron, SVP/General Manager of HOT97 (Statement)
The radio veteran’s announcement followed new footage surfacing online of him with a cross-dresser.
This comes shortly after audio of an alleged encounter with Bimbo Winehouse, part-time drag queen made its way online. In the released audio, it’s claimed that the two voices you hear are Winehouse and Mister Cee negotiating prices for sexual services. According to Winehouse, he negotiated a few sexual services and kicked her out of the car after he didn’t pay. Mister Cee hasn’t spoken out about this incident, but it isn’t the first or second time he’s been busted for soliciting a male prostitute. (Love B Scott)
