When the word went around that Miss USA Tara Conner was in trouble with the beauty contest committee and in danger of losing her crown, details were sketchy about what exactly the beauty queen had done to put her title on the line.

But new evidence has now emerged that Conner shares her boozing ways with her younger roommate Miss Teen USA, and both of their crowns could be in danger.

The New York Daily News reports that Conner is on the verge of losing her crown after testing positive for cocaine, lustily kissing Miss Teen USA in public, and sneaking men into their Trump Place apartment.

Multiple witnesses have confirmed that Conner and Blair drank at the Chelsea club Ultra on December 8 in a group led by fashion photographer Fadil Berisha, who has shot for the Donald Trump-owned pageants for several years.

"He was buying the girls drinks. They definitely had a good time, dancing on the couches, rounds of shots and a pretty late night. They had fun," one source said Conner was named Miss USA just eight months ago, but quickly started blazing a trail through New York's late-night club world.

The Miss USA runner-up, Miss California USA Tamiko Nash, would inherit the crown if Conner can't finish her reign.

Meanwhile billionaire Donald Trump has won the backing of beauty pageant organisers for putting Conner on warning for reported misbehaviour, with the industry keen to protect a sanctified image of beauty queens.
