UPDATE: Lisa McCune has spoken for the first time about the allegations, at The King and I press conference at The Princess Theatre today. McCune said the scandal was not worth talking about, dismissing it as ‘baloney.’
“I actually think it is quite funny because apparently I’m heartbroken which I’m not. Everybody is happy and Teddy is doing well,” McCune said.

Gold Logie star Lisa McCune has been embroiled in a sex tape scandal, after explicit footage was recently released of her partner and co-star Teddy Tahu Rhodes.
New Zealand born Tahu Rhodes was caught on camera with a mystery brunette in the home video that was leaked this week.
It’s not clear when the video was created, but it’s suspected it was filmed some years ago, as Tahu Rhodes appears without some of his more recent tattoos.
This isn’t the first time the couple have found themselves tangled in controversy.
The start of their relationship made headlines in 2012, after they were spotted kissing and holding hands in Sydney – with McCune allegedly still married to the father of her children, Tim Disney at the time.
McCune, 43, and Tahu Rhodes, 47, currently star together in the musical production of The King and I in Melbourne. They previously worked together in the production of South Pacific, where their romance was rumoured to have started.
The couple have refused to comment on their relationship in the past, and as of yet, neither has made a statement regarding the sex tape.
