E!’s First Lady of Late-Nite has found herself in the middle of a real-life sex scandal.
Chelsea Lately host Chelsea Handler is firing back at reports that she is featured in X-rated footage recently obtained by RadarOnline.com.
On Wednesday, Radar snoops reported that the no-holds-barred comedienne was caught on tape “nearly a decade” ago getting saucy and uncut with a sexy Brit. According to tipsters, the footage was shot shortly after a then 25-year-old Chelsea moved to Los Angeles and features Handler in the throws of passion as she tries out a mirage of blushworthy positions with an unidentified partner.
Chelsea — whose signature sass landed her a Playboy centerfold last winter — asserts that the tape in question was purely comedic and part of a long forgotten “comedy bit.”
Well, that’s a new one!
“Watch the show. It’s not a sex tape – it was done for a comedy bit years ago,” a ticked-off rep for the star fumed when flooded with questions about the suspicious tape.
Radar, on the other hand, insists the skin flick is no laughing matter, writing: “During the first part of the tape Chelsea is fully clothed in her work uniform. She begins by introducing herself by name before going into a stand-up routine before suddenly cutting to Chelsea and her male partner engaging in an explicit sex act. Chelsea, who is on all fours on a bed is naked and at several times during the filming she looks directly at the camera. Her breasts are bare and swinging during the sex act. At the end of the “performance” Chelsea’s partner speaks in a clear British accent, asking, “Did we get the (bleep) shot?” Chelsea looks into the camera and smiles at this point. Then the tape immediately cuts back into Chelsea continuing her stand-up routine in her apartment….”
