Pushpika De Silva, who was uncrowned the Mrs. Sri Lanka 2021 title shortly after she was named the winner in the Mrs. Sri Lanka pageant held last night, has been admitted to hospital today morning due to head injuries after her crown was snatched away from her head by reigning Mrs. World Caroline Jurie.
Pushpika’s assistant told Daily Mirror that Pushpika had suffered serious injuries to her scalp and was under treatment. She was also suffering from severe depression after the incident last night.
She further said that Pushpika was not divorced from her husband and the accusations levelled against her by Jurie were all false.
Pushpika has also lodged a complaint against Caroline Jurie and Chula Padmendra, who supported Jurie’s actions on stage, stating they intended to harm her by getting violent.
Meanwhile Pushpika De Silva who was stripped off her crown of Mrs. Sri Lanka 2021, by reigning Mrs. World Caroline Jurie, at a beauty pageant held last evening, will be re-crowned following a media briefing tomorrow, event organizers said.
Pushpika is presently in hospital seeking treatment after her assistant said she had suffered injuries to her scalp after the crown was violently pulled off her head by Jurie.
Pushpika has also lodged a police complaint against Jurie and Chula Padmendra, who supported Jurie’s actions on stage.
Jurie had waited till all the judges and VIP guests had departed the show and then stormed on stage claiming that Pushpika was a divorcee and hence did not deserve the crown. She was then seen taking the crown away and placing it on the head of the first runner up.
The incident has received wide attention today.
