Miss Delaware Teen USA Melissa King Resigns After Alleged Amateur Porn Sex Tape Surfaces
Things have gotten pretty ugly for one beauty queen.
Miss Delaware Teen USA Melissa King
gave up her crown Tuesday, a rep for the Miss Teen USA pageant said in a statement. According to multiple reports
, the reason for the 18-year-old brunette's resignation is an alleged porn tape that surfaced Monday.
One obviously NSFW clip featuring a young woman purported be King shows an attractive brunette sitting on a bed for a brief interview. The woman confirms she is 18 years old. "I like being on top" she says with a laugh, just before the footage switches over to X-rated porn.
Per Delaware's Daily Times
, King said Monday it was "absolutely not" her in the amateur video. The paper also reports the woman in the clip confirms she's "a Miss Teen" and confirms she's done pageants.
"It's not a big secret," she reportedly says. "But I didn't tell anybody specifically what I was doing."
King reportedly has a lawyer but has declined to name him or her. According to the Daily Times
, a comment is forthcoming.
In the meantime, it looks like Miss Teen Delaware USA runner-up Hailey Lawler
will be taking over the title.
