Miss Universe Stripped of Crown

141

Miss Universe Jamaica 2015, Sharlene Radlein has been stripped of her crown.

The decision was announced by the Pageant organizers today at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel.

They say Ms Radlein’s behavior has been inconsistent with the culture of the pageant, both locally and internationally.

This comes weeks after Radlein filed a lawsuit against the pageant organizers in the Supreme Court.

The suit filed July 20, names organizers Karl Williams , Mark McDermoth, and Uzuri International Designs, the registered holder of the Miss Universe franchise as respondents.

In the suit Radlein alleges that the defendants breached an agreement to award her prizes valued at more than two-million dollars.

She’s also claiming that they are in breach by not paying over the cash prize portion of the prize due since January.

The defendants have 14 days to acknowledge the claim and 42 days to file a counter-claim.
