After repeatedly denying she was the girl in an online sex tape that surfaced earlier this week, Melissa King, the current Miss Delaware Teen USA, decided to resign and forfeit her title this morning. The eighteen-year-old brunette on the tape never reveals her name but she admits to being born in March and competing in beauty pageants. Given the striking similarity in appearance, it was enough to convince most observers, and apparently, it was enough for the organization to either force her resignation or for King herself to simply decide she didn’t want to deal with the fallout.

According to Delaware Online, pageant officials have already contacted runner-up Hailey Lawler, and she will reportedly step in to fulfill Miss Delaware Teen USA’s responsibilities for the rest of the term. As for what will happen to King, that’s unclear at this point. She’s reportedly still denying any involvement with the tape, though why she would resign if it really was just a look-a-like is unclear. Either way, her career in pageants would seem to be over, and more than likely, she’ll forfeit any prizes and scholarships she won in recent pageants.

If people want to act in pornographic films, that’s their business, but how anyone thinks they can do so without others finding out is unclear, especially when it’s in the porn company’s best interests to play on any kind of fame the person might have. When in doubt, keeping the clothes on is usually the better decision.
