Carly Rae Jepsen denies sex tape involvement

Carly Rae Jepsen has denied she was involved in a raunchy sex tape after footage of a girl performing an intimate act surfaced on the web.

The star - who shot to fame with her hit song Call Me Maybe - took to Twitter to deny the female in the video was her.

She posted on the microblogging site: "Crazy morning. Discovered that someone put up a sex tape claiming to be me. Ridiculous. Obviously not me."

Gossip blogger Perez Hilton had earlier published grainy stills from the clip on his website, which showed a lady with long, brown hair and a fringe similar to that sported by the celebrity.

While it is unclear whether or not the person in the video is Jepsen, stocking up on condoms may be a wise move for anybody looking to remain safe when indulging in sexual practices.

Hilton added the tape must have been shot recently, as the Kanye West and Katy Perry song E.T. can be heard playing in the background.
