Former Hot 97 employee DJ Envy has shared his reaction to the news of ex-co-worker Mister Cee making headlines these past few days over male prostitution accusations.
During his Power 105.1 “The Breakfast Club” morning show, Envy said Cee needs help.
“I’ve known Mister Cee from working at the other spot, very cool individual. He was probably the only person I respected who was cool up there and I don’t care what his personal preference is, women or men. That doesn’t bother me. What bothers me is him out there soliciting prostitution. Not only because he could catch something, a disease, putting himself in a situation he can’t come out of but there’s also a lot of crazy people out there. And I would hate for him to lose his life or to be injured by one of these crazy prostitutes or even get injured. And I’m asking anybody — that’s his frieds, his true friend — needs to put his arm around him and say, ‘Homie, you have a problem.’ Take him to therapy, take him to get help because I’m sure if I was in a situation up here — I’m sure my family would help me.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
Despite the negative attention, MC denied being a homosexual man.
“I am not gay,” Cee said in the interview. “Thursday night, Friday morning, I was approached by a female undercover cop. A female, Latino, undercover cop. Not a male cop. The female undercover cop, I have her badge number. So I know who it is. Why did the story first start off on Saturday, because I think everything kind of first jumped off on Saturday with the first story. If you do your diligence and you do your research, the first story that came out, in the Daily News was undercover, female officer. Then, from out of nowhere, it changed into male undercover officer. … I can’t answer why it changed from that. But there is enough information out there, available, where one day it said female officer and it changed. … The incidents that happened in the past with me, the three incidents or whatever you want to say, there was one person brung up in those three instances that was a male. You never heard anybody else’s name being brought up in any other incident — that male person put out two different videos. One video saying, ‘I don’t know Mister Cee, I never met him, the only time I ever seen him was when I was locked up in a cell with him. I didn’t engage in any sexual activity with him.'” (“Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg Show”)
While Cee denied having any interest in same-sex relationships, he did admit an addiction to prostitution.
“Yes I do,” Cee added when asked if he likes prostitutes. “I have engaged with prostitutes a lot in my lifetime as well as strippers. I have tricked on strippers, many a times. And I’m going to get into why I do that or what makes me do that, we’ll get into that a little bit later.” (“Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg Show”)
Reports of Cee’s latest run-in with New York police hit 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.
