If you haven’t already heard, Hot 97 DJ Mister Cee was, once again, arrested for soliciting a male prostitute over the weekend. Early Monday morning, the DJ of the popular New York City radio station took to the airwaves to address the arrest and claims he is gay.
Of questions regarding his sexuality Cee says, “I am not gay.”
“People have accused me of being gay for probably ten years now. I don’t care what people think.” he stated while on air with co-workers Peter Rosenberg, Cipha Sounds, Ebro, and K Foxx of the Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg morning show.
On his third arrest for soliciting a male prostitute Cee wanted to clear the air on what actually happened. He says, “I was approached by a female undercover cop.”
It seems Mister Cee can’t stay away from male prostitutes. The Hot 97 deejay was arrested, again, late Friday night for soliciting sex from a prostitute in Brooklyn.
Unfortunately for Mister Cee, real name Calvin LeBrun, the male prostitute he attempted to solicit sex from was an undercover police officer.
Back in 2011 the infamous deejay was arrested for doing much of the same. This time, only the details were released, much to our dismay. He had been trying to get fellatio (oral sex) from the male prostitute in a parked car.
Back in February, 2 Chainz was arrested for possession of a marijuana following a routine stop and search on his way to a concert at the University of Maryland.
Following his arrest, it was later discovered that the rapper’s bodyguard, Harold Folsome, Jr., was actually the person responsible for packing his luggage. At the time, a marijuana grinder and the drugs were found in 2 chainz’s possession. During the brief trial proceedings, Mr. Folsome admitted to packing the luggage but insisted he did not know who the items truly belonged. He stated he had been in a rush, at the time, and hadn’t been paying close attention to what he was placing into the bag.
Who would have expected America’s sweetheart, Reese Witherspoon, to be arrested? That’s just what happened this weekend in Atlanta, while in town to film a movie.
Witherspoon and her agent and husband, Jim Toth were arrested in Atlanta, GA Friday night when they were pulled over for driving in the wrong lane. Although it was actually Toth who had been driving, the actress was cited and arrested for disorderly conduct. Her husband was charged for driving under the influence (DUI).
“A state trooper observed that a car driven by Witherspoon’s husband, James Toth, was failing to stay in its lane,” and that “Witherspoon disobeyed multiple orders to stay in the car while he performed a field sobriety test on Toth. After she refused to return the car, she was handcuffed and arrested,” reports Variety.
Bobby Brown was not let off the hook this time. He has just gotten a 55 days sentence to an LA County jail for his drunk driving arrest back in October. Brown had been driving under the influence with a suspended license.
The singer was sentenced on Tuesday and also received four years of probation. Unfortunately Brown was already on probation following a previous drunk driving arrest.
He has also been ordered to attend and complete a treatment program for substance abuse for the next 18 months.
Get it together Bobby, please!

“The reason why he made remarks was due to him feeling totally disrespected by all the things that happen to him in the city of Seattle. He had a moment where he felt very unappreciated. He now just wants to move forward from those unfortunate events and give his fans outstanding shows from this point forward.”

Yesterday Soulja Boy was arrested in Georgia after the vehicle he was traveling in was stopped on a traffic violation. When officers did a routine search in the vehicle they found lots of marijuana, 46,000 in cash, and a gun.
The 21 yr old “Crank Dat” rapper, real name DeAndre Cortez Way, was then taken to Carrol County Jail and booked along with four passengers traveling with him at the time.
Just this morning, the rapper and his entourage faced the judge on his drug possession and weapons charges. Although, no confirmation has been made. It’s belief the weapon found in his SUV had been licensed.
Soulja Boy has since been released on a 10k bond. Further investigation is on the way.
Unfortunately, he also missed his big movie premiere for his straight to DVD film ‘Soulja Boy: The Movie’.
Dancehall Deejay, Vybz Kartel, real name Adijah Palmer, was officially charged with murder Monday afternoon. Following an investigation by police, the charges against the artist came after a dead body was found in a St. Andrew residence he frequently visits.
A police statement issued in Kingston on Monday said that the 35-year-old artist was charged with murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm. Investigators accuse the rapper of conspiring with others to kill a 27-year-old promoter who was murdered July 11, 2011.
“The allegation is that on Monday, July 11, 2011, Palmer, along with other men, conspired to murder Barrington Burton o/c ‘Bossie’, a 27-year-old businessman/promoter of a Gregory Park address in St Catherine. Burton was murdered while he was standing with friends along Walkers Avenue in Gregory Park,” the police release said. A preliminary hearing is scheduled to take place on Tuesday.
Kartel, who was originally arrested on Friday for marijuana possession is said to be aligning his legal team to fight the allegations. He remains in police custody.

Just a little tid bit….
Our friend Atlanta rapper T.I may officially be a free man today. Tip has spent the last 2 weeks in a halfway house but should have no issues getting his get out of jail free card this morning.
Just last month, the rapper faced a set back when he landed back in jail for a minor violation after an early release. But, we hear it should be smooth sailing from here on out.
Today is, after all, his official release date. Guess, we shall see.
So T.I is officially a free man once more. Just two weeks ago, the rapper was released from prison one month early. Unfortunately, his celebration was short lived when he was ordered to go back to prison a week later. Apparently, T.I’s lavished means of transportation and unauthorized filming of his release landed him back behind bars.
Although it was previously reported that Tip would serve the remaining stint of his prison sentence until late September, he has been released again! Just this morning, in fact. The rapper was visibly elated approaching the halfway house he was snatch from a week ago.
T.I’s lawyer Steve Sadow told TMZ,
“We have good reason to believe that this favorable result was reached because of the proactive and assertive approach taken to protect T.I.’s rights by providing B.O.P. officials and the media with reliable and accurate information and that T.I. did not intend to violate his transfer furlough or any other B.O.P. rules en route from the prison facility in Arkansas to the halfway house in Atlanta.”
Sadow adds, “T.I. will be released from custody on Sept. 29, and then will be supervised by the U.S. Probation Office for a period of 1 year.”
