LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Chelsea Handler will address reports of a decade-old sex tape on her show, “Chelsea Lately,” on Wednesday night, Access Hollywood has confirmed.
“Watch the show. It’s not a sex tape - it was done for a comedy bit years ago,” a rep for the star told Access.
Radar Online reported on Wednesday that the comedienne made the tape “nearly a decade” ago, shortly after her move to LA. The tape reportedly includes stand-up footage that cuts to a clip of Chelsea with a male partner naked on a bed, performing what appears to be intercourse.
The site asserts that the scene in question is not comedic.
Radar further reported that the male participant speaks with a British accent and appears behind Chelsea in the sequence.
The talk show host will also appear tonight on “The Tonight Show,” promoting her new book, “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang.”
“Chelsea Lately” airs on E! at 11 PM.
