An prolonged model of Chelsea Lazkani’s marriage ceremony video, solely obtained by Page Six Thursday, proves the “Selling Sunset” star isn’t faking her British accent.
Earlier this week, a TikTok titled “Proof Chelsea IS faking her accent” went viral after it confirmed simply seconds from Chelsea’s vow trade to husband Jeff Lazkani throughout their 2017 nuptials.
The clip confirmed a side-by-side comparability of Chelsea’s talking voice on the latest “Selling Sunset” reunion, which premiered May 5, along with her voice throughout her vows, which appeared to have a much less pronounced British accent.
Fans instantly believed the most recent Netflix star was a fraud primarily based off of the lower than one-minute lengthy snippet.
One particular person commented, “I knew it!!! There was one episode she was talking and it slipped!! She went back to an OC accent.”
Another agreed, “I knew I wasn’t tripping. That accent was glitching the whole season lol.”
However, some did come to Chelsea’s protection, with one particular person noting, “I don’t think she’s faking it. People slip in and out of accents all the time when they move around so much.”
An extended model of the unique footage of the vow trade Page Six obtained exhibits the realtor’s pronunciation and intonations in her voice have all the time been just like that of a UK-based particular person, significantly when she says phrases like “heart” and “can’t.”

The actuality star’s seemingly fluctuating accent has been a sizzling subject amongst “Selling Sunset” followers ever since she made her debut throughout Season 5 of the hit Netflix collection.
Host Tan France, who’s from Britain himself, even questioned her about it on the reunion.
“My parents are Nigerian, so I grew up in a household where my parents had an accent, right?” Chelsea defined.
“I lived in London for the first 10 years of my life, and then I moved to Switzerland, and then I moved to New Jersey, then I moved to New York, and now I live in Los Angeles, so I’ve been all about the gaff.”

Chelsea concluded, “My accent is a mishmosh of all the places I’ve lived, but I’m a London girl at heart.”
Research reportedly exhibits that accents turn into everlasting when youngsters attain the age of 12, however it’s attainable for accents to “change over time” or for adults to develop a “subtle accent” after dwelling abroad for an prolonged time period.
