A beauty queen who was stripped of her title has disappeared with her $100,000 crown.
May Myat Noe became Myanmar's first international beauty queen when she was named Miss Asia Pacific World, but the word 'dethroned' has now been written by her name on the pageant's website and organisers are demanding the return of her crown.
Pageant spokesman David Kim tells Eleven Media newspaper, "She thinks as long as she keeps this crown she's the winner."
It's unclear exactly why Noe was stripped of the title but organisers claim she had become untrustworthy.
Her former manager Hla Nu Tun claims Noe and the pageant bosses had disagreed over who should oversee her career - Noe wanted her mother to oversee her professional life.
Reports also suggest Noe refused to undergo breast augmentation surgery, as per Miss Asia Pacific World organisers' wishes.
Kim adds, "We thought she should be more beautiful... so we sent her to the hospital to operate on her breasts."
