Baylee Curran, who claimed to be the 2016 winner of the Miss California Regional, has been outed by the pageant’s committee.
The pageant’s organizers released a statement denouncing Curran’s claim, saying she only held the title for three months before getting dethroned due to certain questionable allegations that trailed her short reign.
Upon her removal from the position, Miss Curran refused to return the crown and the sash and has been posting photographs on social media under false pretense as the winner of the pageantry.
The official statement from the pageant on Wednesday, August 31, read:
Miss Curran has been dethroned as of July this year due to a breach of contract. Baylee Curran has been asked numerous times to return her crown/sash which she has refused to do.
We do not condone the alleged actions of Mr. Brown or his associates, however, Miss Curran has incorrectly identified herself as Miss California Regional.
Baylee held the title for three months, and was removed after the committee investigated certain allegations that occurred during her reign.
The California Regional said it “prohibits any form of alcohol or paraphernalia use nor do they allow any behavior not befitting a queen.”
