GMA News’ “24 Oras" said Raj will be replaced by Bb. Pilipinas runner-up Helen Nicolette Henson, who will now assume the responsibilities of the Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 2010, which include representing the country to the Miss Universe Pageant.
Raj was crowned Bb. Pilipinas-Universe last March 7. She has not reigned for over a month yet.
Other beauty pageant winners who were stripped of their title in the past included Anjanette Abayari (Bb. Pilipinas-Universe, 1991), Tisha Silang (Bb. Pilipinas-Universe, 1998), and Janelle Bautista (Bb. Pilipinas-Universe, 1999).
The three were dethroned due to issues on their citizenship – Abayari and Bautista both grew up in the US, while Silang was born in Canada.
