The rumor mill heated up yesterday (May 6) when a transsexual named Toni Newman claimed on a radio show that she had sex with rapper/actor LL Cool J.

Uncle L’s manager, Claudine Joseph, denied the claims, telling XXLMag.com that the accusations were “pure comedy.”

“I was a street prostitute and LL picked me up, back as a street prostitute walking the block what we called trannie now,” said Newman on Santillian and the Wild Out Wake-Up Show on 102-Jamz in Greensboro, North Carolina. “There were lots of trannies walking that block, late at night back in the days. That’s how we all made our money….that was in the late ’90s, so about 13 years ago.”

Newman claims she and LL had sex for $500, and that he was aware she was a man.

Newman wrote about this experience and others in I Rise: The Transformation of Toni Newman, currently on stands.
