The 18 year old Miss Delaware beauty queen Melissa King, has been reported to have relinquished her crown, as a result of allegations that she was a star in an online porn video. The teen queen was just crowned Miss Delaware Teen USA in November 2012.
Pageant spokesperson Dara Busch of Rubenstein Public Relations has confirmed to NBC10 that King handed in her letter of resignation in the wake of the sex video scandal. although Busch maintains the teen beauty queen hasn’t confirmed she is the woman in the video.
When Delaware Online contacted Melissa to confirm if that was really her in the sex tape she completely denied it “Absolutely not,” she responded “It is not.”
Her lawyer, Greg Hannigan, told NBC10.com that a “statement will be issued,”.
In the video a woman, alleged to have been King, described her favorite sex positions, when she lost her virginity, her previous relationship and also explained why she did the movie “I thought it’d be fun, and it sounded like I needed the money, so I just did it,”.
In response to questions about Miss Teen pageants, the lady admitted that she has done beauty pageants before.
Runner up in last years competition Hailey Lawler has now been given the title as the new Miss Delaware hopefully with less controversy.

This is one of those stories you hear and are not sure what to think, surely if a beauty queen should act in a porn movie she would expect people to recognize her, or is it just a mis-understanding? But what about the tweets that she apparently re-tweeted from supports which says if a good person does bad, that does not make them bad…. Honestly I do not know what to say or think so help me here what are your thoughts?
