"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.
"Chelsea Lately" airs on E! at 11 PM.
