A brawl erupted at the Mrs. Sri Lanka pageant after Caroline Jurie had removed the crown off Pushpika De Silva who was announced as the winner of the pageant, over allegations that she was a divorcee.  

The matter was taken in court as Jurie had refused to apologize to Mrs Sri Lanka crowned Pushpika De Silva while Pushpika had refused to settle the matter without an apology.
