Carrie Prejean: Sex Tape Was The Reason I Dropped Lawsuit

Carrie Prejean admits that she dropped her lawsuit against Miss California USA pageant officials after the organization showed her they had a copy of a private sex tape.

The dethroned Miss California had sued officials for more than $1 million for libel, slander, public disclosure of private facts and religious discrimination.

Prejean claimed that she was stripped of the title because of her stance against gay marriage and accused the pageant of a 'conspiracy' against her with "false and defamatory statements in order to injure her reputation and to justify their plan to wrongfully revoke her title."

The pageant maintained that she was made to step down not because of her views, or even a topless photoshoot, but because she hadn't been holding up her end of the agreement as winner of the Miss USA pageant.

But last week, Prejean abruptly dropped the lawsuit after a meeting with pageant officials. It was rumored that this was due to the existence of a solo sex tape, however, the 22-year-old refused to address the topic.

But on Monday night, Carrie Prejean, who was praised after the pageant for her strong Christian values by many, finally acknowledged the story and called it the 'biggest mistake' of her life.

"All by myself, I was sending a boyfriend at the time, who I loved and cared about, a video of me," she told Fox News. "Never did I think it would ever come out. But it was bad judgment. It's embarrassing. It's humiliating to be talking about this on national TV."

"When you're young, you think, This is the one," Prejean said as she tried to explain away the tape. "Never did I think it would come and just slap me right in the face."

The video, which hasn't publicly leaked out, yet, was a smoking gun because all pageant contestants sign forms assuring the organization they have never been photographed or filmed nude and that effectively destroyed her case.
