Colombo (News 1st); The Mrs. Sri Lanka 2021 pageant held at the Nelum Pokuna Theatre on Sunday (04) night concluded in a melee after the reigning Mrs. World Caroline Jurie stripped the winner of her crown after she was announced.

The Crown for Mrs. Sri Lanka 2021 went to the first runner-up instead.

According to video footage Pushpika De Silva, contestant number 20 was announced as Mrs. Sri Lanka 2021 and was crowned by Shiranthi Rajapaksa, Mayor Rosy Senanayake, and Chandimal Jayasinghe.

However, when Pushpika De Silva was about to take center stage and cherish the moment, Caroline Jurie stormed on stage and said a pageant rule notes that divorcees cannot be crowned as winners and took away the crown from De Silva, despite some protests from the winner.

She charged that Pushpika De Silva was a divorcee and hence was ineligible to win the crown.

Mrs. World 2020 Caroline Jurie was seen placing the crown on the first runner-up’s head while Pushpika De Silva stormed off stage.

The Mrs. Sri Lanka 2021 pageant had come under strong criticism on social media following the events on Sunday (04) night.
