Mrs. Sri Lanka World 2020 Pushpika de Silva To File Case Against Caroline Jurie
MRS SRI LANKA WORLD 2020 – Newly crowned Mrs. Sri Lanka Pushpika De Silva said she still plans to file a case against beauty queen Caroline Jurie after the embarrassing event.
Pageant fans around the world are now talking about the controversial crowning moment of beauty queen Pushpika De Silva. She is the winner of the “Mrs. Sri Lanka World” 2020 title.
Pushpika almost lost her crown and title as it was revoked by her predecessor Caroline Jurie. Caroline yanked the crown of Pushpika and was left in tears after it was snatched from her.
The video of the incident soon went viral on all social media platforms. Many pageant fans criticized Caroline Jurie for her actions.
“As for the new Mrs. World, there is a rule that you have to be married and not divorced. So, I’m taking my first step to say that the crown goes to the first runner-up,” she declared after Pushpika’s crowning moment and victory walk. Caroline then took the crown and gave it to the 1st runner-up.

Pushpika De Silva immediately left the stage after the embarrassing event. The 1st runner-up instantly gave a speech. She said, “First of all, I would like to thank the judges for the honor, and thanks too for (those) who helped me and who supported me in meeting my dreams. Thank you everyone. I would also like to do something for my nation. Winning the crown is not the end, but this is a new beginning of my career. I’m really glad. Thank you!”
The organizers of the Mrs. Sri Lanka World 2020 acted quickly and returned the crown to its rightful owner. On Thursday, Jurie along with model Chula Padmendra, who helped remove the crown, was arrested by Colombo police.
Through a FB post, Pushpika De Silva said she needed hospital treatment after the incident. She thanked all those who supported her and said she still plans to file a case.
“Firstly, I would like to give my respect to the judges for choosing me as the winner of the 2020 married beauty queen crown. Secondly, I think, (this happened) for the first time in the history of beauty queens, not (only) in Sri Lanka but (also) in the world. Even though my crown has been snatched in front of everyone, insultfully, I would keep my head straight at this moment of writing and say that I am proud as before. Me, myself, and this is just another incident for me.
“The pain of my skull when my crown was snatched from my head by the (past) world married beauty queen, the pain I felt when I lost the crown is more than both…
“But this is a historical moment for me as a single woman, where women and men all over the world raise their voices behind party, color, religion, caste, and division. I say this love from all of you is a giant strength for me.
“On the other hand, I’m not a divorced woman. I say with great responsibility that I am not a divorced woman, even at this moment of writing. If I was divorced, I would dare them to submit the divorce scripts. I haven’t hidden from the world that I’m with my child. I also have personal reasons to be that way. But, being apart (from my husband) is one. Divorce is something else. I’m still an undivorced woman!
“If I wasn’t fit at the beginning of this tournament, they would have removed me. They weren’t sleeping until I came so far, after the remaining events. I became the Sri Lankan beauty in the year 2011. Ten years later, last night, I was crowned the Sri Lankan married beauty queen by the decision of the judges. And at that moment, I became the married beauty queen in the hearts of all of you in Sri Lanka and the world,”
“So, if that symbolic crown was snatched from my head, I’ve already passed the necessary legal action for that injustice and insult, I’m informing you. I say, a true queen is not a woman who snatches another woman’s crown; but a woman who secretly sets another woman’s crown!”
