Last week, Riek was criticized when her interview with Missosology became viral online, saying that Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez, and not Miss Philippines, deserved the Miss Universe crown.

On Sunday, Reik took to Instagram to air her side of story. She wrote:

“Hello beautiful people from all over the world. I’m gonna write a true statement from all my heart by tonight. There are some tryin’ to hold me back to not start a war with media but I want to stop the fooling for money. Especially to the passionated fans from the Philippines, I love your country – I was there with my mom in 2013 to help in medical care after Haiyan and I made a lot of friends there,”

“I want Pia to have the fans And support she deserves and I want all our Queens to get the LOVE they deserve. Each and every one of them deserves respect and support, no matter what media is trying to tell you about who they are. Sadly there is a business behind it, a billion dollar business that only works with the right attention, the right scandals to make a lot of money. They don’t care for 81 beautiful souls that just follow their dream, making friends for a lifetime. Please be patient. I will write with effort and all my heart, for each and every one of you, for 80 girls and for Pia #missuniverse #missuniverso #confidentlybeautiful.”
