'Mrs Sri Lanka' beauty queen 👑 injured in on-stage bust-up [UPDATE]


Recommended Posts

The winner of Sri Lanka's biggest beauty prize has suffered head injuries after a brawl broke out on stage. 😢


Beauty queen Pushpika De Silva won the "Mrs Sri Lanka" title at a ceremony on national TV on Sunday.


Moments later, the 2019 winner seized Ms De Silva's crown, claiming she could not be awarded the title because she was divorced. 😲


The prize has now been returned to Ms De Silva, after pageant organisers confirmed she is not a divorcee. 🤓


Judges named Ms De Silva the 2021 winner at the Mrs Sri Lanka final in a theatre in Colombo on Sunday night. 👑


But the 2019 winner, Caroline Jurie, stripped Ms De Silva of her crown, citing a pageant rule that competitors must be married and not divorced.


"There is a rule that prevents women who have already been married and are divorced, so I am taking steps to make the crown go to second place," Ms Jurie told the audience.


She placed the crown on the runner-up, prompting a tearful Ms De Silva to walk off stage, a video of the incident showed. 😭

Caroline Jurie: Mrs World arrested over Sri Lanka pageant bust-up



Police in Sri Lanka have arrested the reigning Mrs World Caroline Jurie, after she allegedly injured a fellow beauty queen in an on-stage bust-up. 👮‍♂️🚓


Pushpika De Silva won the "Mrs Sri Lanka" title in a televised ceremony on Sunday, and former winner Mrs Jurie was meant to crown her. 🤴


Instead, she pulled the crown off Mrs De Silva's head, claiming she could not hold the title as she was divorced. 😲


The winner later said she is separated from her husband, not divorced. 👫
