Following the humiliating scandal, a Miss Universe 2015 update brings us the news of concern that Ariadna Gutierrez, known throughout the pageant as Miss Colombia, may end up having a nervous breakdown after all the drama surrounding her.

Maria Isabel Nieto, Colombia’s consul general to New York, has expressed these fears saying “I do think that [Gutierrez] is very affected by all this.” Nieto went on to say, “I just think that when I was in my 20s and was in her situation I would take a little while to recover.”

These fears over Gutierrez’s mental health have sparked after the beauty queen has been the subject of much hatred. Miss Colombia was mistakenly declared the winner of the Miss Universe pageant, only to have the crown removed from her head in what she thought was her moment of glory.

When the crown was taken from Gutierrez and given to Pia Wurtzbach, Miss Philippines, who was the rightful winner of the competition, the Colombian model was visibly stunned. Since then, headlines in Colombia have called her “Miss Universe for three minutes” and a “universal error,” which certainly add to the sting of the embarrassing mix-up.

After the pageant ended, there were even rumors circulating that Miss Colombia had committed suicide after being “de-crowned.” The rumors went viral, so much that the infamous myth-busting website Snopes posted a statement debunking the event.

According to Snopes, Super 7 News had perpetuated the suicide rumors after publishing an article saying that Gutierrez “was found dead inside her changing room… Authorities found multiple pill bottles laying around Gutierrez’s corpse.” The website, however, is a satire/humor site and the article was not based on any truths.

There are still real concerns about Miss Colombia possibly having a mental breakdown, however. Despite saying “Everything happens for a reason, so I’m happy,” as she shared her feelings towards the horrible on-stage blunder, the beauty queen was visibly trying to hold herself together through tears over the embarrassing loss.
