Transgender model Sidney Starr, who was once rumored to be in a relationship with Hip Hop artist Chingy, recently spoke with VladTV and offered her opinion on how Mister Cee should handle his sexual orientation in the public.

“I would say my outtake on Mister Cee, I think he really was in a big, big denial stage in his life,” Sidney Starr said. “I think the way he was exposed was kind of bad. I feel sorry for him because the last time that he had that little video on him, that person that did that to him was reckless. I know everyone makes mistakes, that man should have been able to have another way of bringing out that fetish of his. I think the way it was done was horrible. I feel sorry for him. He should not be feeling bad about what he likes. I think he should just embrace it.

“I think Mister Cee probably thinks he’s probably the laugh of the town right now but it’s a lot of men out here who love transgender women and are very vocal with it,” Starr continued. “I think he should just take that and be vocal with it and embrace it. I think people will respect him more instead of being ashamed of it.”

When asked if she has had relationships with men like Mister Cee who keep their sexual preferences hidden from the public, Sidney Starr said “of course.”

“I have many of those in my life right now,” she said. “It drives me crazy, it’s like, ‘Dude, don’t tell me that if you see me in public to don’t say nothing to you.’ You just were with me, kissing all on me, telling me how much you love me. That really irks me. So I really hate those Mister Cee’s in my life right now. Those are the dudes who I do wrong. I make them give me all their money. At the end of the day, I’m gonna be the one taking your money even though you told me not to say shit to you in public, but baby I took about $500 out your pocket. Yeah. I did.”

Last year, Mister Cee resigned from his post at Hot 97 following an arrest in May for allegedly soliciting sex from an undercover police offer. After resigning, Mister Cee offered numerous interviews and maintained that he does not identify as homosexual. “Absolutely not,” he said when asked if he is gay in an interview with GQ. “And it’s nothing—it’s no offense to transgender women, but I only get with transgender women for one thing and one thing only, and that’s for oral sex. Like I said: I never had sex with a man. I never had sex with a transgender woman.”

Last month, Chingy spoke about past rumors of his relationship with Starr and claimed that the affiliation hurt his public image.

“It goes to show you how many people wanted it to be true,” he said. “That’s what it goes to show you. It goes to show you that that person who nobody knew had that much power to come out and say one negative thing about me and a whole mass of people just instantly took to it. And they didn’t have not one piece of evidence. Not one piece—a clue, nothing. They had nothing. They just had this person’s lie…It actually, it injured my career a little bit. I watched it happen. I lost a deal cause of that…It was said to me. Cause it was so much bad publicity around it…I’ve never been through a sabotage situation like that. And it was so fabricated and false.”
