Former Miss USA contestant Sheena Monnin is now commenting on losing the lawsuit she filed against Donald Trump and his Miss Universe Organization, claiming it was rigged.
At the time, she wrote on Facebook “I witnessed another contestant who said she saw the list of the Top 5 BEFORE THE SHOW EVER STARTED.” However, earlier this month a judge ruled she had to pay $5 million, saying her “false” allegations “showed a reckless disregard.”
Monnin, 27, has been quoted in the Pittsburgh Tribune saying of the ruling “I was shocked that was ruled against me, frankly.”
As for counteracting the decision, she said “the most logical course of action is to fight.”
After the ruling, Trump said in a statement “We cannot allow a disgruntled contestant to make false and reckless statements which are damaging to the many people who have devoted their hearts and souls to the Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA pageant systems.”
