Miss Delaware Teen USA, Melissa King, officially gave up her crown on Tuesday, after a porn clip allegedly featuring the 18-year-old beauty queen surfaced on the Internet.
King has reportedly denied that she is the girl who is featured in the video, TMZ.com reported.
In the clip - shot some time in June 2012 - the girl addresses the camera, claiming that she turned 18 a couple months beforehand in March, which is also King's birth month.
The girl is then seen describing her favourite sex position before the actual sex begins.
She was crowned Miss Delaware Teen USA in November, just four months prior to the sex footage getting shot.
A representative for the Miss Teen USA pageant released a statement claiming that he would like to confirm that the Miss Delaware Teen USA pageant has received a resignation letter from King's attorney.
The representative also said that they have already reached out to the first runner-up Hailey Lawler in order to replace King. (ANI)
