Stop me if you can believe this one: a girl who willingly dates some of the most famous athletes and entertainers in the country is upset with the media for ruining her “normal” lifestyle. Seriously.
Chantel Jeffries, who was in the car with Justin Bieber when the musician was arrested last week in Miami Beach, has responded to the negative attention she’s received since the incident.
“I am a full time student who had enjoyed a normal lifestyle, free from public scrutiny and criticism, until now. What has happened to me is wrong. I want people in general, and the media in particular, to consider the impact their disparaging comments have on the individual; especially when their comments are inaccurate,” Jeffries said in her statement.
See if you can buy that assertion from Jeffries. How can someone who dated P. Diddy’s son, Justin Combs, Pro Bowl WR DeSean Jackson, and Bieber, claim she lives a “normal lifestyle”?
Also in her statement, Jeffries got upset with the media for making what she says are false statements about her arrest record. Multiple outlets reported that the young model had been arrested five times, including once for allegedly stabbing a woman with a deadly weapon.
“My family and I are particularly upset about the false accusations which have been published concerning my criminal history,” the statement said. “For the record, I have not been arrested five times, as has been stated in the media, nor am I guilty of physically assaulting anyone, in any way shape or form.”
True — she’s not guilty of the assault — the charge was dropped after the victim did not want to proceed. That doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.
You can tell by her statement and some of her comments on Twitter that Jeffries has been bothered by what’s happened.
So many false allegations going around, I will clear up everything very soon.

But what the heck do you think is going to happen when you hang out with Bieber? You can’t ask for attention and then complain when something negative goes along with it. That’s the give and take of fame, and Jeffries is experiencing it.
