Miss Universe Vs Ex-Miss Pennsylvania
TMZ broke the story ... Miss Universe owner Donald Trump gave Monnin a 24-hour ultimatum to retract her statements that pageant winners are predetermined -- but Monnin refused.
So this morning, one of Donald's lawyers tells TMZ, the Miss Universe Organization -- Miss USA's parent company -- has filed suit before a private court, and intends to go after Monnin for all she's worth.
The lawsuit was not filed in a public court because of a stipulation in Monnin's contract -- which requires any dispute to be handled through private arbitration.
We're told the Miss Universe team has filed two separate causes of action -- both seeking big bucks. How much? We're told, "Significant damages."
Attempts to reach Monnin were unsuccessful. more on this story
