Who Is Pushpika Silva
Pushpika Silva is currently the new Mrs. Sri Lanka 2021 beauty queen following a chaos that unraveled at the Mrs. Sri Lanka for Mrs. World pageant held in Colombo on April 4th, 2021.
During the event after she was crowned, De Silva was stripped off her crown of Mrs. Sri Lanka 2021, by reigning Mrs. World Caroline Jurie, citing that the participants should be married and not divorced as per the rule of the contest.
The crown was forcibly removed from a tearful De Silva, who walked off stage and given to the woman who came second, footage from the ceremony shows.
She reportedly needed hospital treatment for injuries caused when the crown was taken off.
Now, according to the media in Sri Lanka, the title will be handed back to her.
Pushpika De Silva Response
De Silva says that she is separated but not divorced.
In a Facebook post, she said that she went to the hospital to get treated for head injuries after the incident. She added that she would take legal action for the “unreasonable and insulting” way she was treated.
She wrote, “I’m still an un-divorced woman… A true queen is not a woman who snatches another woman’s crown, but a woman who secretly sets another woman’s crown!”
De Silva’s relationship status has not been fully clarified.
It seems she may be separated from her husband, according to reports, but she has stated that she is not divorced.
