Reigning Mrs World Caroline Jurie has given up her crown after her behaviour at the Mrs Sri Lanka pageant.
Pushpika De Silva won Mrs Sri Lanka, but during the crowning ceremony on Sunday, Jurie snatched the tiara off De Silvia’s head. Jurie claimed De Silva was divorced which is against the pageant’s rules. However, De Silva clarified she was separated, not divorced, and said she was injured during the incident.
Jurie discussed the drama in a video post about her decision to step away from the pageant that has been “tainted” by the crowning ceremony.
“Every beauty pageant has a set of rules and regulations. What I was pushing for from the beginning was a fair stage. The rules and regulations are equal to all. Rules aren’t there so that we can find loopholes so that we can win at any cost. I believe rules and regulations are there for a reason.
I know I burst a few bubbles, created conversation and even a discussion about class and values that a queen wearing a crown should stand for.
My only intention was to stand up for the injustice caused to the competitors throughout this competition which was tainted with heavy politicization.” She said.

The Police arrested Jurie along with model Chula Padmendra on Thursday 8th April on “charges of simple hurt and criminal cause.”
In a video of the crowning ceremony, published by the Colombo Gazette, Jurie told the audience, “There is a rule that you have to be married and not divorced, so I am taking my first steps in saying that the crown goes to the first runner-up.”
She then removed the crown from the winner’s head and placed it on the runner-up. De Silva later said she suffered “injuries to my skull” when Jurie “snatched” her crown.
