A shocking sex scandal has prompted Miss Delaware Teen USA  to resign from her post.

Melissa King, who was crowned in November, submitted her letter of resignation Tuesday after a sex video surfaced on a porn website, billing the teen as its star.

Although King never confirmed the woman in the video was indeed her, a tweet sent out by the ex-beauty queen on Saturday appears to give followers a heads up of the brewing scandal.

According to Gawker, the video is featured on the “real amateur girls” website GirlsDoPorn.com. The clip shows the young woman answering questions by an off-camera interviewer, where she reveals that she had recently turned 18-years-old and actively participates in beauty pageants.

According to the Miss Universe Organization – which runs the pageant – King will be replaced by Miss Delaware Teen USA runner-up, Hailey Lawler.
