"Word on the street is my accent is fake," said Chelsea.

"I know, it's all over the place, but listen, there's an explanation."

Selling Sunset fans had been confused over Chelsea's accent, after she was welcomed onto the fifth season of the Netflix show.

One person wrote on Twitter: "I will spend the rest of my life trying to figure out Chelsea Lazkani’s accent."

While another said: "I’m so confused by Chelsea off Selling Sunset’s accent."

And a third added: "Surely Chelsea on selling sunset is an actress putting on a voice because what on earth is her accent."

Others were quick to defend the realtor, however, with one person adding: "Everyone saying Chelsea’s accent is fake London… it just sounds like an American and London accent blended to me. She’s been there for 6 years. It’s possible, duh."

Chelsea revealed in an interview with People that she was "very familiar with Oppenheim Group" and knew Jason Oppenheim through her husband, Jeff Lazkani.

The couple have two children together: a three-year-old son named Maddox Ali Lavon and a two-year-old daughter, Melia Man.

"I think having the support of my husband and my family really essentially prepared me to take on this role and this opportunity," she told People.

You can catch Selling Sunset season 5 on Netflix now.
