A dethroned 16-year-old beauty queen from Myanmar, also known as Burma, said she won’t return her bejeweled crown until pageant organizers apologise for calling her a liar and a thief.
Mr Kim said Noe was stripped of her title last week because she was dishonest and unappreciative, and that she ran off with her tiara after learning of the decision.
Miss Noe said she boarded a plane for Myanmar before getting word.She said she did not intend to steal the crown, but also wasn’t going to give it back without a “sorry,” not just to her, but also to Myanmar.
“I’m not even proud of this crown,””I don’t want a crown from an organization with such a bad reputation.”
The bejewelled Swarovski tiara – valued anywhere between $100,000 (£60,000) and $200,000 (£120,000)
