The former Miss Teen Delaware Melissa Kind has resigned after a video of her appeared on a porn website.

The 18-year-old Ling is seen in the video sitting on a bed answering questions about sex, being single and beauty pageants.

"I thought it'd be fun and it sounded like, I needed the money," that was Miss Teen Delaware's response when the cameraman asked Melissa King what made her want to do the video.

Melissa King formally stepped down as Miss teen Delaware this morning. A representative for the beauty pageant released a statement saying, "I would like to confirm the Miss Delaware Teen USA pageant has received a resignation letter from Miss King's attorney."

At first King denied that the girl in the video was her, saying it was a case of "mistaken identity." However the girl in the video says she turned 18 in March (King's birthday) and the cameraman says to King:

"You're actually a Miss Teen? Don't worry I wont say the state, but you've done beauty pageants?" The girl replies, "I've done them, yes."
