Miss Jamaica Universe Sharlene Radlein has lost her crown. The decision was made on Friday.
The franchise principals made the announcement at a press conference at Jamaica Pegasus on Monday.
“Since being crowned… we have painstakingly sought to guide Ms Radlein in a manner which reflects the vision and ideals of the organization. However, her actions have been wholly inconsistent with the culture of the pageant, both locally and internationally,” the principals were reported as saying.
The stripping of the crown comes hot on the heels of the lawsuit filed by Radlein in the Supreme Court on July 20.
Karl Williams, fellow Miss Universe Jamaica manager Mark McDermoth, and Uzuri International Designs are the registered holder of the Miss Universe franchise, and are being sued by Radlein.
