The judges had picked contestant number 20 as the winner of Mrs. Sri Lanka for Mrs. World and was subsequently crowned onstage.
However it is said that concerns were raised from a group of people who were among the invitees for the event saying the winner was not married and that she was divorced.
Mrs. World 2020 and outgoing Mrs. Sri Lanka, Caroline Jurie had later made an announcement saying the winner cannot be divorced and so she has decided to crown the first-runner up as the new winner.
Accordingly, she had removed the crown from the winner and crowned the first-runner up as the new winner as the original winner was seen leaving the stage.
