Chantel Jeffries has shot down rumors about her relationship with Justin Bieber, while simultaneously sticking up for the singer.
The model - who was seated alongside Bieber when he was pulled over for DUI and drag racing last month - opened up to E! News today and said she was never dating the artist.
“We’re friends," Jeffries told Terrence Jenkins.
So they were never more than friends? Even for a night? Even for a smooch?
"Do you kiss your friends, Terrence?" Jeffries asked. "Do you sleep in the same bed as your friends?”
What about Bieber's reputation as someone who takes a lot of drugs and who think he's God's gift to the universe?
Jeffries says there are a lot of "misconceptions about Justin" and - while "legal reasons" prevent her from discussing the night of the arrest - she said Bieber was "just happy to be out" of jail the next day and that's why they went down to Panama… together.
Some have referred to Jeffries as a gold digger who has simply attached herself to a rich celebrity.
What does Chandel have to say in response?
“If anything, you can say I’m a goal-digger because, guess what? I have my own goals. And I’m focused on those. I don’t really need anybody else.”
