Miss Universe Honduras dethroned

Another title holder had her crown removed from her head, days before our very own Roshannara Ebrahim was stripped off her title as the Miss World Kenya.

We sail away to Central America to the Republic of Honduras, the home of the recently de-crowned Miss Universe Honduras, Sirey Moran.

According to news sources, Sirey Moran’s title was revoked last week by the organization that owns the rights to the pageant in the country, CARIMAXX, they cited “diva-like behaviour” and breach of “contractual obligations” as the reasons behind it.

The director of CARIMAXX, Carlos Riviera, said Moran had been attending events and negotiating without their permission. “She did whatever she felt like doing, she believed she controlled the organization”, he said.

Moran has since denied the above accusations and counter accused the CARIMAXX director of alleged violence.

According to Teen Vogue the alleged incident took place in late June. The two had a meeting in New York City to go over the terms of the contract. They had a dispute over it and it escalated to a point where Riviera allegedly hit the beauty queen.

She released a statement to a local Honduras magazine saying she was attacked by Riviera and two other men.

Miss Moran claims she ran out of the streets to ask for help, she filed for report but no arrest was made due to lack of evidence. She further went on to release an audio where she is heard saying “this man hit me”.

Carlos Riviera denied the accusations while he was speaking to a Honduras magazine, but he confirmed that organization is trying to find another Miss Universe to replace Moran

Upon hearing the news, Sirey refused to go down without a fight, she released a statement to international media house E! News saying:

“It is very unfortunate this has happened and I am very disappointed and hurt, violence is never the answer. I am working with proper authorities here in the United States and Honduras and I am confident in how they are handling this situation for me.”

The beauty queen who was preparing to represent her country in the prestigious Miss Universe pageant released a second statement to a Honduras magazine that reads:

“Being able to compete for Miss Universe has always been a dream of mine. Representing the country of Honduras is such an honour and something I take very seriously … The support I am getting from the community is truly amazing. I hope to be able to compete for Miss Universe and represent my home country of Honduras.”

Other beauty queens who have been dethroned in the last two months include, Miss Florida, Genesis Davila for illegally using her own professional stylists instead of the one provided by the pageant and Miss Corpus Christi Latina, Caitlin Cifuentes after it was discovered she had a criminal past.
