Authorities said Sri Lanka’s Mrs. World, Caroline Jurie, was arrested Thursday following a fight during the crowning of Mrs. Sri Lanka 2021.
Pushpika De Silva won the 2021 “Mrs. Sri Lanka” title Sunday, but her crowning did not go as planned. Caroline Juri (pictured, second from left, during the incident), current holder of Sri Lanka’s “Mrs. World” title took to the stage just after the win was announced, pulling the crown from De Silva’s head after accusing her of being ineligible to win. “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,” Mrs Jurie said on stage.
De Silva was reportedly hospitalized for head injuries and “trauma” sustained in the scuffle. Video footage of the conflict went viral, racking up over 3.7 million views at
