Yuma, AZ October 1 -- A scandal has been brewing at a local high school for weeks, as the Gila Ridge Cheer coach is accused of being a porn star.  KSWT News 13 first learned of the allegations from parents.   Rumors have swirled for awhile, But no one would go on the record. Now -- the National Enquirer will publish an article on the cheer coach's former career.

Natasha Herzig led Gila Ridge High School's cheerleading squad to the state championship last year.  But that's apparently not the only thing on the bombshell's resume.

A National Enquirer reporter tells KSWT the tabloid will publish a story about Herzig's adult film career on October 11th.

In the article due to be published, Herzig will be quoted in the Enquirer article as saying, "I don't understand why it's such a big deal.  I haven't done anything wrong or illegal.  I don't understand why anyone would care what I did years ago."

According to a published report, Herzig went by the name Tiffany Price when she was an adult film star.  A former Platinum Caberet employee tells KSWT Herzig also went by that name when she was a stripper at the Yuma club. 

Herzig will not go on camera with KSWT News 13.

Several parents of Gila Ridge students have also come forward and made the same allegations.  None of them are willing to go on camera either.

Yuma Union High School District Superintendent Toni Badone says she can't comment on the issue because it's a personnel matter.

Herzig is not accused of doing anything illegal.
