Bolivian model Joyce Prado, 22, who won the Miss Bolivia title 2018, who allowed her to represent her country at the Miss Universe ceremony, held in Thailand, was rejected by her crown.
The reason for a controversial decision, according to the modeling agency for which it operates, is her pregnancy for almost two months.
"The current Miss Santa Cruz and Miss Bolivia Universe 2018 have been resolved by their crowns like Miss Santa Cruz and Miss Bolivia for reasons that are strictly related to a breach of contract."
This was said by the local organizers, who added, maintained "cordial relations in the field of understanding, preservation of the confidentiality clause".
"Although pregnancy is lucky," misses "must meet a contract, and when they fail to adhere to it, they lose all their benefits."
