Miss CaliforniaCarrie Prejean
is in breach of contract and "entered the contest under false pretenses," officials with the state's pageant announced Monday.
Prejean has said she's done nothing wrong.
Trump, who owns the Miss USA pageant, will decide Tuesday whether she will keep her crown, reports the Los Angeles Times.
The controversial beauty queen did not tell contest officials that she was involved with anti-gay marriage organizations and missed public appearances that were required under her contract with the Miss USA organization, saidKeith Lewis and Shanna Moakler
, co-executive directors of Miss California USA.
Her brief reign has been clouded by the appearance online last week of semi-nude photos and her anti-gay marriage stance that she voiced publicly at the Miss USA pageant.
Trump said last week that he would review the photos of Prejean making the cyberspace rounds. California pageant officials said they first thought that there was only one racy photo but have since discovered there are four.
