Melissa King, Miss Delaware Teen USA reportedly resigned her crown today amidst claims she appeared in a sex video shortly after her 18th birthday.

“I would like to confirm to you that the Miss Delaware Teen USA pageant has received a resignation letter from Miss King’s attorney,” pageant spokeswoman Dara Busch wrote in an e-mail this morning.

King's resignation came after a video found on the website GirlsDoPorn.com on Monday allegedly starred a woman that looked and sounded like King, the Delaware Online reported.

When asked if it was her who in the video, King told the publication she was aware of the video but denied it was her.

“Absolutely not,” she said. “It is not [me.]”

According to Gawker, in the clip, a woman who resembles King explains that she just turned 18, that she went into porn because she needed the money, and that she participates in beauty pageants.

King was crowed Miss Delaware Teen USA last year and will be replaced by runner-up, Hailey Lawler of the Newark area, according to the pageant's website.
