A Delaware beauty queen has given up her crown amidst a sex scandal.

Melissa King won the title of Miss Delaware Teen USA in November of 2012.

A pornographic video had surfaced months before the pageant. The person in it bears a deep resemblance to King.

The 18-year-old has said she is aware of the video, but denies the person in it is her.

King, a Philadelphia college student from Bethany Beach, officially resigned as Miss Delaware on Tuesday.
