A federal judge in New York has upheld an arbitrator's ruling that a Pennsylvania beauty queen must pay the Miss USA pageant $5m (€3.9m) for defaming Donald Trump's pageant organisation.

Sheena Monnin resigned as Miss Pennsylvania last year, saying the Miss USA contest was rigged and posting messages on Facebook with her claims.

She said another contestant learned the names of the top five finishers hours before the show was broadcast and that she decided to turn in her crown as soon as those same contestants were named during the show.
