Miss Universe Contestant Stripped of Her Crown
Puerto Rico’s 2016 Miss Universe contestant Kristhielee Caride is being stripped of her crown after a controversial interview with a Puerto Rican newspaper.
The 24-year-old beauty pageant contestant is said to have missed several public appearances and in the interview explained that she did not like being in front of the camera.
Kristhielee blamed the situation on personal problems and apologized for her actions in a now deleted Facebook post.
“I would like to express my most sincere apologies to each and every one of my fans first of all those who have supported me from the first moment, to my work team and the organization of Miss Universe Puerto Rico. It was never my intention to make you feel bad, hurting or damaging the image of those who have helped me to be where I am today,” the former Miss Puerto Rico said.
She held the title for four months and will transfer the crown to the runner up, Brenda Jimenez.
