She’s one of the hottest beauty queens in the world, but Christina Mikkelsen has been stripped of her Danish Miss Universe crown and wrongfully accused of money laundering. Now, the buxom blonde has opened up about the cause behind her recent misfortunes: her abusive boss, John Paul Hamilton.

The 24-year-old was in the middle of a TV interview when Face of Denmark, the organization that runs the country’s Miss Universe pageant, emailed the show’s producers to tell them that she had been dethroned because her ex-boyfriend was accused of running a multimillion-dollar scheme.
Prosecutors later confirmed that Mikkelsen was not under investigation by any European authorities for having been connected to her ex’s fraudulent activities, but the damage had been done. Now, the beauty queen is planning to take legal action against Hamilton for defamation.
“He made my life hell. He called me stupid, lazy, and selfish,” she confessed.
Mikkelsen even accused Hamilton of texting her mother: “She is the worst title holder I’ve ever had. She’s a spoiled brat, and you’re the reason why.”
The drop-dead gorgeous model who sometimes posts near naked pics of herself on Instagram essentially lived in fear due to Hamilton’s harsh mood swings, with Mikkelsen claiming that he would alternate between praising her beauty and comparing her to a drag queen, or between hyping her up for pageants and telling her that she was too ugly to win the crown.
In response to the allegations, Hamilton doubled down on his critique of Mikkelsen’s mother’s parenting skills, claiming that Mikkelsen never should have been allowed to date her ex, Teodoro Obiang, who is the 47-year-old son of the president of Equatorial Guinea. He faces charges of corruption, embezzlement, and money laundering.
