Chelsea Kane is not letting herself being entangled in a cocaine video scandal any longer. The Disney starlet, who previously went by the name of Chelsea Staub, has denied she is one of the two young women allegedly snorting cocaine in a short viral video as she set the record straight in a recent radio interview.
When the subject was brought up by "Mojo In The Morning" host, the "Jonas L.A." beauty replied, "That bums me out hardcore because it's not me, and the other girl that they're suggesting in the video is my co-star on the show Nicole Anderson." She added, "It's just such a bummer because our faces are pixilated and it's just so obvious that someone's trying to start some controversy."
Asked if she's going to sue, this season's contestant of "Dancing with the Star" was quick to say "no" before saying, "I mean I don't know." She went on to explain, "The hard part is it'd be different if I got caught doing something really bad and it was like, oh man, how do I deal with this? But it's frustrating when you have to defend yourself against something that didn't happen and that wasn't you."
Still, Chelsea did admit she gets supports from "DWTS". "It actually hasn't been a massive deal on the show," she dished. "I made all the phone calls immediately saying like, 'Have you seen this, what do we do?' And everyone who knows me was like, 'Well we know that wasn't you, so we just have to take the next step to get that video off the Internet and kill those rumors before they really blow up.' "
Radar Online has previously reported that the video has been described to be containing "footage that makes the Miley Cyrus bong video look like a Disney movie." One source told the gossip site, "There is more than one famous person in the footage." The clip has been pulled from YouTube, but still exists on sites like Twitvid.com.
