SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) — The assistant principal of a school on New York's Long Island is in hot water with the district following her brief turn as an actress in a raunchy rap video.

Newsday reports (http://nwsdy.li/1OE3bXH ) Southampton High School's Esther Adler-O'Keefe has been reassigned to a new position after she appeared in the video for "Best Friend" by rapper J.R. and R&B singer Trey Songz.

Superintendent Scott Farina says Adler-O'Keefe will now oversee "a variety of academic support services throughout the district."

In the video, Adler-O'Keefe plays a woman going on vacation with her husband. Hired as the house sitter, J.R. throws a massive party boasting a bevy of drugs, alcohol and scantily-clad women.

Farina said the district was unhappy with Adler-O'Keefe's participation.

Adler-O'Keefe didn't immediately return calls seeking comment.
