Mrs. World has been arrested and has been charged with “simple hurt and criminal force,” according to Fox News.
“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,” formerly crowned Caroline Jurie states.
“A true queen is not a woman who snatches another woman’s crown, but a woman who secretly sets another woman’s crown!”
From Fox News:
Earlier this week, Mrs. Sri Lanka, whose name is Pushpika De Silva, accused Caroline Jurie, the winner of the Mrs. World 2020 competition who is also from Sri Lanka, of injuring her head after she stormed the stage and declared that a rule states the winner of the contest must be married and not divorced.
After a brief, non-violent struggle to get the crown from De Silva’s head, Jurie placed it on the runner up, prompting De Silva to walk off stage. However, in a Facebook post about the incident De Silva noted that, although she is separated, she is “an un divorced woman” and therefore feels that the crown was improperly and “insultfully” taken from her.
The two women have been ordered to appear in court on April 19.
