Melbourne, (ANI): Miss Universe Australia Rachael Finch may loose her crown after details of her row with the pageant's national director were made public.
Finch was said to have sent a letter of complaint in an email to the New York head office of the Miss Universe Organisation, a copy of which has leaked. It may cost the 20-year-old beauty to be stripped off her title, according to pageant sources.
"Under the (Miss Universe Australia) contract, bringing the brand into disrepute is grounds for instant dismissal," the Daily Telegraph quoted one source as telling the Sunday Mail.
Finch allegedly claimed to have signed an exclusive three-year management contract under immense pressure from Miss Universe Australia National Director Deborah Miller. And the Queensland model was said to be devastated on learning the email had been made public.
Miller, on the other hand, denied the allegations, saying that she was getting her legal team ready and would investigate the claims before commenting further. Miss Universe Organisation owner Donald Trump was reportedly engaging his attorneys to look into the matter.
