Bb. Pilipinas-Universe Maria Venus Raj Dethroned
Bb. Pilipinas-Universe Maria Venus Raj is dethroned after Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI) found inconsistencies on her birth certificate.
The organization discovered the inconsistencies when both Venus and her mother said that she was born in Doha, Qatar, but on the legal documents they submitted, she was born in the Philippines.
Maria Venus Raj will be replaced by Binibining Pilipinas runner-up Helen Nicolette Henson to compete for the 59th Miss Universe Pageant on August or September of this year.
