The Miss Sri Lanka contest had an unprecedented scene for the spectators: the crown of the winner, Pushpika de Silva, was ripped off by Miss Sri Lanka in 2019 and Miss Mundo in 2020, Caroline Jurie. According to her, the new winner could not receive the crown because she was divorced. At the time of removal of the crown, Pushpika had an injured head and ended up trying to go to the hospital.

During the coronation, held last weekend, the ex-miss took the stage of the international competition, which seeks the most beautiful woman on the planet, and removed the microphone from the presenter, stating that the contest needed to be invalidated: “There is a rule which prevents women who have already been married and are divorced, so I am taking steps to ensure that the crown goes to the second place “.

The audience was surprised and Jurie placed the crown on the head of the participant who had taken second place. In an interview with News 1st, she said she was not divorced, she just did not live in the same house as her husband: “Living in separate houses and being divorced are completely different things. I have already taken legal measures against the injustice and humiliation caused at the event.”
