Video After The Jump
Prominent New York City radio personality DJ Mister Cee has resigned from his job at Hot 97. The resignation comes on the heels of allegations that Cee solicited sex from cross dresser/internet personality Bimbo Winehouse.
A video was released today by Winehouse. It includes audio of him discussing prices for sex with someone believed to be Mister Cee.
Cee signed off today after 20 years with Hot 97. Read what he had to say below.
It is not a mystery that the past two years I've been through a lot," he said on the air Wednesday when announcing his resignation. 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. Ain't nobody perfect man. 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.
This is the fourth time in the last two years that Cee has run into problems stemming from soliciting sex on the streets of New York.
In May of this year he was arrested for trying to pay an undercover male cop for sex. In March 2011, he was caught by police receiving oral sex a cross-dressing prostitute in a car. He also pleaded guilty six months earlier to the same offence.
Hot 97 bid the DJ farewell in a statement:
"Due to some personal circumstances that have become public, after 20 years of service, Mr Cee has chosen to resign," Hot 97 general manager Alexandra Cameron said.
