While Miami Beach Police haven't identified the woman who witnessed the Canadian singer drop F-bombs at police while being pulled over for drag racing with singer Khalil, all signs indicate the passenger was Chantel Jeffries.
The model was photographed in the passenger seat of Bieber's rented yellow Lamborghini late Wednesday night when they drove away from SET nightclub. She was part of his entourage inside the hot spot, where he partied at a table in the back, according to E! News. And earlier on Wednesday, the "Boyfriend" singer himself, who recently started spending time with ex Selena Gomez again, posted a photo of her on Instagram. The pretty blonde, who's a Wilhelmina model in Miami, was pictured at the wheel of the sports car. He captioned the shot, "@chanteljeffries taking me for a ride in the lambo."
Soon after, however, some not-so-nice comments from jealous Beliebers appeared under the Instagram photo. It was then deleted from his page.
So what do we know about Jeffries? For starters she's had her own run-in with the law. In 2011, the North Carolina native was charged with misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon, an Onslow County District Court Clerk confirms to "The Insider With Yahoo," for allegedly stabbing another woman in the forearm with a sharp object during a physical altercation on Feb. 2 of that year. The case was later dismissed when the prosecuting witness didn’t want to go forward with the case.
What else? Wilhelmina's website lists her as 5'6 with dark blond hair and green eyes. In her portfolio on the site, the woman — who bears a slight resemblance to Kim Kardashian — shows off several tattoos, including an anchor on her left wrist and writing on her right side.
Jeffries's own Twitter profile describes her as a "student, model, eyebrow connoisseur, animal lover, [and] deep thinker." She notes that in addition to being based in Miami, she also lives in Los Angeles and New York.
Her last tweet, posted just after midnight, when she was reportedly with Bieber, was:
Something about the shock factor.— CeeJay (@ChantelJeffries) January 23, 2014
Earlier in the evening, she was at a basketball game, she shared on Twitter. She's a sports fan — according to reports, her exes include Philadelphia Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson.
Meanwhile, Jeffries's Instagram is filled with sexy selfies, including lingerie shots. She also posted a photo of herself in a car earlier this week as well as another photo with the caption, "Ride or die. Something like that."
And on Jan. 15, she posted a photo of a passage about soul mates:
Yahoo has reached out to Jeffries, but she has not yet responded to our request for comment. "The Insider With Yahoo" reports that the model has nothing to say at this time.
Hanging with Bieber isn't exactly Jeffries's first brush with the law. In fact, she's had run-ins with police up to five times, most notably after stabbing a woman in the forearm with a sharp object during a physical altercation on Feb. 2, 2011, the Onslow County court clerk confirms to "The Insider With Yahoo."
Bieber has nothing to say either, according to his rep. But he'll eventually have plenty to say in court when he's fighting charges of DUI, resisting arrest, and driving with an expired license. According to police, he admitted he was drinking, had smoked pot, and had taken prescription pills before getting behind the wheel. When he was pulled over, he was allegedly racing with Khalil.
