Hot 97’s Mister Cee has once again found himself in a publicized case involving male prostitution after being arrested trying to allegedly solicit sex from an undercover cop.
Details of the messy situation sprouted across the Internet Saturday (May 4).
Popular Hot 97 deejay “Mister Cee” was busted trying to pick up a male prostitute in Brooklyn, cop sources said. But Cee, 46, whose real name is Calvin LeBrun, didn’t know that the gigolo he approached at Madison St. and Broadway in Bushwick just before midnight on Thursday was really an undercover cop, the sources said.

Back in June 2011, Cee pleaded guilty on a prostitution charge.
Cee, 44, whose real name is Calvin LeBrun, pleaded guilty to a charge of loitering for the purpose of engaging in a prostitution offense. He and his much younger companion, Lawrence Campbell, 20, were busted March 30 at 4 a.m. at Watts and West streets. He was ordered to complete three months, or 12 sessions, of counseling with a doctor, officials said. (New York Daily News)
A police report detailing Cee’s March arrest hit the Internet a few months prior.
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.

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)
Prior to all of this going down, Cee also ran into a similar problem months prior.
This was Cee’s second conviction on the same charge. The music man was busted in lower Manhattan last Oct. 8 and pleaded guilty a month later, officials said. Cee made a name for himself in the hip-hop world as Big Daddy Kane‘s deejay. He later produced “Ready to Die,” Notorious B.I.G.‘s first album. (NY Daily News)
