Former Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin lost HUGE in court after calling Donald Trump‘s Miss USA Pageant “fraudulent.” Monnin must now pay Trump and the pageant $5 million for defamation after a federal judge upheld an arbitrator’s decision that she would have to pay up.
Sheena Monnin tried to plea with the judge that the ruling would “financially devastate” her, but the judge ruled on Tuesday that she didn’t take the case seriously enough and was “woefully unaware of…the consequences.” Following the 2012 Miss USA Pageant, Miss Pennsylvania had alleged that Miss Florida had seen the top five finalists hours before the show started.
The day after, Sheena Monnin resigned as Miss Pennsylvania. She said that the pageant was, “fradulent, lacking in morals, inconsistent and in many ways trashy.” Donald Trump, not one to mess around, slapped Monnin with a lawsuit and said all her claims were false and she’s just angry she didn’t win. BOOM…1 for the Donald!
