The craziest magnificence pageant story in years is NOT over but!
In case you missed it the primary time, it began on the Mrs. Sri Lanka pageant on Sunday. The previous Mrs. Sri Lanka Caroline Jurie — who occurred to have additionally been elevated to Mrs. World — was there to move her crown to the brand new winner.
However when Pushpika De Silva gained, one thing snapped. Jurie shocked the viewers and crew alike by taking the mic from the brand new winner and declaring gurl was ineligible as a result of she was a divorcée:
“There’s a rule that you simply all need to be married and never divorced. So I’m taking my first steps and saying that the crown goes to the primary runner up.”
Then she SNATCHED gurl’s crown proper off and put it on the top of the runner-up!
There was SO a lot improper with that. First off, De Silva just isn’t even divorced, although she is separated from her husband. However regardless of how Jurie feels about that loophole within the guidelines, she didn’t even have the authority to make that call on the fly. Nationwide director of the Mrs Sri Lanka World competitors Chandimal Jayasinghe informed the BBC it “was a shame how Caroline Jurie behaved on the stage” and the group had opened an investigation.
And it wasn’t simply them.
The opposite factor in regards to the present Mrs. World’s actions is that apart from being emotionally devastating, they had been bodily dangerous as effectively. De Silva claimed afterward she needed to go to the hospital with “a head damage” from the crown-snatching. In order that makes what she did against the law in addition to a surprising spectacle.

And on Thursday she was arrested for it, together with mannequin Chula Padmendra. It’s unclear what position Padmendra performed, however the arrest apparently got here in any case these concerned had been questioned by investigators. Police spokesman Ajith Rohana informed the BBC:
“Police arrested Caroline Jurie and mannequin Chula Padmendra over Sunday’s incident on fees of straightforward damage and prison trigger.”
Jurie and Padmendra have already been bailed out and are anticipated to look in Colombo Magistrates Court docket on Monday, April 19.
Whereas De Silva has already been re-crowned, we’re critically questioning how lengthy Caroline Jurie can maintain on to the title of Mrs. World. She could also be married, however absolutely there’s a rule towards assaulting a fellow contestant, proper?
