Kristhielee Caride who was stripped of her crown as Miss Universe Puerto Rico due to an attitude problem told Univision that she was admitted into a psych 'coz of devastation.

"This situation hit me very hard, I can tell you I got some help because a dark depression came over me. I’m not eating, but it is something that I have controlled,” Caride told Univision.

Caride won the rights to represent Puerto Rico to Miss Universe pageant four months ago but lost her crown last March 17 after she rebuffed the press, telling that she doesn't like cameras.

Desiree Lowry, Miss Universe Puerto Rico national director was embarrased by this incident and said that Caride damaged the her organization.

Now, Caride has plans to sue the organization that turned on her, "(I feel) betrayed by the organization because there was never a moment that I disrespected them," she told Univision. "There wasn't a reason for them to do what they did to me." She also said, she has gotten her depression 'under control'.

Earlier this week Brenda Santiago, Caride's mother said that they will their "truth" to Puerto Rico. She share on Facebook that her daughter's emotional health was her priority.  "If my children fall, the world crumbles for me," she wrote.



Caride apologized to her fans in a Facebook note earlier this month and revealed she had been having personal problems in the day leading up to the interview.

"Beauty queens are not exempt from having a bad day," she wrote in Spanish. "I allowed my feelings to get in the way of my work. It is human to err, it is also courageous to recognize our errors and I want to continue being an example of a real woman with purpose that maintains their head held high before all adversity that happens in life."

She also said that she did not agree with the decision of the org., but she accepted it "with didgnity".

"I will always remember the night of November 12, 2015. When I won the title, and all the experiences and lovely memories of having been crowned Miss Universe Puerto Rico 2016."
