Lark Voorhies is facing a sex tape scandal, with the Saved By The Bell star reportedly featured in an explicit video that she previously claimed did not exist.
There had been rumblings for months that the actress was featured on a home video with now ex-husband Jimmy Green. The two are locked in a bitter break-up, and the sex tape may have been threatened to be released by Green as leverage.
Now it seems that the sex tape featuring Lark Voorhies is out. Celeb Dirty Laundry noted that the video appears to have surfaced, with a side called the Shade Room posting screenshots from the alleged video.
The report noted that the video may actually be connected to the former Saved By The Bell actress.
“To be honest, there are still questions about whether Voorhies is the woman in the picture but it looks like maybe the amatuer adult film star could be her.
“The photo was posted to an Instagram account @TheLarkVoorhies and was captioned, “BREAKING!! We will be releasing clips every few hours on 12/14!! Stay tuned to see the former ‘Saved By The Bell’ Star in a variety of freaky s** acts performed with her now ex-husband, Jimmy Green!
“The picture and it’s creepy caption have since been deleted and now many are wondering if the clips are really going to be released on social media.”
But even this seeming connection to the tape is murky. Lark’s publicist, Marky Hutt, told Celeb Dirty Laundry that Lark doesn’t have an Instagram account, and that the one promising to release the video is a fake.
This was actually related to a different controversy, a report claiming that the actress had lupus. Voorhies denied the report and said the Instagram it was posted through was fake.

If the sex tape is legitimate, then Lark Voorhies joins a growing number of celebrities who are fighting back against these explicit home videos. Rapper Kanye West was also reportedly threatened with the release of a video showing him and a woman identified as a “Kim Kardashian look-alike.”
Radar Online reported that Kanye connected with a Hollywood “fixer” and paid a huge sum to make the video go away.
“A Hollywood businessman who brokered other sex tapes with celebrities successfully negotiated the deal,” a source told Radar. “Kanye was very relieved! It would have been a disaster had it ever been released.”
The exact total he paid wasn’t reported, but it may have been a huge total. An insider claimed that the sex tape had been shopped around, and there was a “lot of interest” in its purchase.
Another rapper may have actually been hit with an unwanted release. Lil Wayne was reportedly targeted by someone who had possession of a video showing him with two unidentified women. Though Lil Wayne denied knowing about such a video, a one that fit the description later appeared online.
Some have taken their fights to court. Hulk Hogan, who was featured in a video, sued Gawker Media for hosting the video.
For Lark Voorhies, the sex tape appears related to some tension with her ex-husband. A few weeks ago, TMZ cited a source who claimed that Green was bragging about the video and threatening to release it for a price.
The couple had a tumultuous relationship. After meeting through Facebook they eloped in Las Vegas, but Lark filed for divorce within a few months.
Lark defended the marriage in an interview with Entertainment Tonight‘s Kevin Frazier, saying she didn’t regret marrying Green.
Lark Voorhies has not spoken publicly about the alleged sex tape.
