Caroline Jurie resigns after the turmoil on the stage in which she removed the crown from the winner of the Sri Lankan contest.
“Mrs. World,” Caroline Jurie, returned her crown on her own after a few weeks after a scene on stage in which she removed the crown from the head of the winner of the beauty contest Mrs. Sri Lanka, organizers said.
“Her decision to resign was made exclusively by Caroline herself,” Ms. World Inc. said in a press release on social media on Wednesday.
Jurie relinquished the title earlier this month as she defended her decision to remove the crown from the head of this year’s Sri Lankan title, Pushpika de Silva, whom she claimed was ineligible to compete in the April 4 contest. , because she divorced.
De Silva said she is separated but not divorced from her husband, although legal proceedings are ongoing.
“Being separated is one thing. Divorce is something else “, she posted on Facebook.
Jurie, who is also from Sri Lanka, was accused of injuring Silva in the televised contest. Four days later, she was arrested on charges of “simple injury and criminal force” and later released on bail.
Jurie said he opposes “injustice” and that the contest was “contaminated.” She said she wants to make sure every competitor has equal opportunities.
De Silva claims that Jurie injured her while trying to remove the crown. She was again crowned Monday by organizers, who challenged Jurie’s claims that de Silva is ineligible.
