Miss California Carrie Prejean will be allowed to keep her crown, pageant organizers have ruled.

Donald Trump, who owns the Miss USA pageant, made the announcement Tuesday at Trump Tower in New York City.

Pageant officials had claimed she violated her contract by making public appearances with groups opposed to same-sex marriage.

"She has recorded a telemarketing message that is calling for donations and signatures to protect marriage," said Shanna Moakler, director of Miss California Pageant. "Carrie has been unavailable to us, to her sponsors, to her responsibilities, to Miss USA because of her commitment to outside organizations."

Prejean has been at the center of controversy ever since she expressed her opposition to same-sex marriage during the Miss USA Pageant last month.

Oficials also said she failed to tell them about photos she took as a teenager posing in her underwear.

Trump, however, said Tuesday that the pageant has determined the photos are "fine."
