Popular New York City radio personality, Calvin LeBrun, aka Mister Cee, took to the airwaves Wednesday to announce his resignation from HOT 97 FM, the city's number one hip hop station. LeBrun, who has been busted for public sexual trysts in the past, is leaving on the heels of scandalous audio allegedly implicating him soliciting a transsexual for $100, according to Complex Music. LeBrun was busted back in March 2011 after New York's finest caught him in an alleged oral sexual act with another man. In May, LeBrun was cuffed again after he reportedly solicited an undercover policeman posing as a prostitute. He discussed the arrest on his radio show, contending the undercover officer was a female and not a male.
In the latest scandal, a transsexual prostitute going by the name of Bimbo Winehouse (pictured) posted a YouTube video that allegedly records LeBrun offering her $100 for oral sex. At the end of the video, Winehouse is clearly heard mentioning Mr. Cee by name. The person with whom Winehouse is speaking does not deny being the famous DJ.

LeBrun made his announcement and did not negate the fact that he has indulged in "tricking" and how that was "his thing." In his final radio broadcast, LeBrun also went on to state:
"It is not a mystery that the past two years I've been through a lot. When you dealing with corporate America, and you dealing with a station you love as much as I love this station, you don't want to put them through this...I've been thinking about this day for a long time. I never want to be in a situation where I'm pushed out. I've been at this station for 20 years, since 1993. If I want to go out, allow me to say I'm going out. And the station is allowing me to have that, and I appreciate that."
LeBrun then stated how he is not infallible. "Ain't nobody perfect man," he said. "And I'm far from perfect. I've made my mistakes, but when it affects the people that you love, the people that you come up with...I'm just gonna move on."
As far as the validity of the video, LeBrun has not publicly confirmed or denied its authenticity.
Meanwhile, HOT 97 issued the following statement regarding LeBrun's resignation:
"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 on September 11, 2013, an already sad day for New York City."
