Have you ever been to a wedding where the minister asked if anyone objected to the meeting of those two people. . . And someone actually went, “I object!” And chaos? Something similar happened at the Mrs Sri Lanka crown ceremony this weekend. The difference is that no one was asking objections, and the complaint was not against a couple getting married, but against a woman who won the Mrs Sri Lanka 2121 title.
Simultaneously, things turned violent. Oh, and the offensive offensive was the current Mrs. World title holder.
so! Mrs. Drama in Sri Lanka! Mrs World Arrested! What happened? Read on to find out.
Pushpika De Silva was crowned as Mrs Sri Lanka on Sunday – for a few minutes, at least.
The television pageant was interrupted by Caroline Jury, winner of the 2019 pageant and current Mrs. World. The jury took the stage to voice their objections about De Silva’s coronation, claiming that the new Mrs Sri Lanka was indeed divorced, which would disqualify her from the competition.
Mrs. World Inc. For, there is a rule that you must marry and not divorce. So I am taking my first step by saying that the crown goes to the first runner-up ”, Juri said before taking De Silva head and taking the crown from him. De Silva exited the stage, while Juri placed the crown on the head of the first runner-up. The winning music lasted the entire time.
not so fast!
The next day, Pushpika D’Silva published a lengthy Facebook post detailing a few things. For one, she is not divorced – she is separated. Secondly, she was taking legal action against Caroline Juri for her “inappropriate and abusive” behavior along the way. In fact, he had to go to the hospital to treat injuries when the jury removed the crown from his head. Yikes.
The organizers of Mrs Sri Lanka returned the crown to Pushpika De Silva on Tuesday, apologizing to them and expressing disappointment over the actions of the Caroline jury. The National Director of Mrs Sri Lanka World Chandimal Jaising told BBC News, “We are disappointed. It was outrageous how Caroline Juri behaved on stage and Mrs. World Organization has already started an investigation on the case. “
As Pushpika De Silva, she dedicated her victory to single mothers during a press conference: “There are too many single moms like me who are suffering in Sri Lanka. This crown is dedicated to women, single mothers, who suffer to raise their children alone. “
Recall how the new Mrs Sri Lanka said that she was going to suppress the charges against the former Mrs Sri Lanka? Well, he totally did. The Caroline jury was arrested today. Police spokesman Ajit Rohana said BBC News jurors were charged with “simple injuries and criminal reasons”. The current Mrs World was not alone either, as the police also arrested model Chula Padmendra for helping her in the crown-snatching.
As per the BBC news, apart from collecting the statements of Caroline Juri and Chula Padmendra, the police investigation also collected statements from Chandimal Jaisinghe about the crown defeat. While Juri and Padmendra were released on bail, they are expected to appear in Colombo Magistrate Court on 19 April.
Regardless of the legal consequences when it comes to Caroline Juri, Mrs Sri Lanka organizers have said that they hope to issue a public apology for Pushpak de Silva. Mrs De Silva, on the other hand, would go on to compete on the Mrs World competition, as did Caroline Jury in 2020, after being crowned as Mrs Sri Lanka herself. And so the world keeps turning.
