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 cross her crown to the brand new winner.
However when Pushpika De Silva received, 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 just all should 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 pinnacle of the runner-up!
There was SO a lot incorrect with that. First off, De Silva shouldn’t be even divorced, although she is separated from her husband. However irrespective 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 instructed 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 concerning the present Mrs. World’s actions is that apart from being emotionally devastating, they have been bodily dangerous as nicely. De Silva claimed afterward she needed to go to the hospital with “a head harm” from the crown-snatching. In order that makes what she did a criminal offense in addition to a stunning spectacle.

And on Thursday she was arrested for it, together with mannequin Chula Padmendra. It’s unclear what function Padmendra performed, however the arrest apparently got here in spite of everything these concerned have been questioned by investigators. Police spokesman Ajith Rohana instructed the BBC:
“Police arrested Caroline Jurie and mannequin Chula Padmendra over Sunday’s incident on expenses of straightforward damage and legal trigger.”
Jurie and Padmendra have already been bailed out and are anticipated to seem in Colombo Magistrates Court docket on Monday, April 19.
Whereas De Silva has already been re-crowned, we’re significantly 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 in opposition to assaulting a fellow contestant, proper?
