Although her name may be unfamiliar, all that is about to change. Jefferies has become a news-cycle celebrity, destined for her 15-minutes of fame.
The 21-year-old model is well-known in certain celebrity circles as a fly girl with a rap sheet of her own. And, she seems to have a knack for finding a party and ending up as celebrity arm candy.
That’s exactly how it played out Jan. 23 when she and a posse of girlfriends walked into the SET nightclub in Miami on Jan. 23. Bieber and his friends were also inside.
When the party broke up, Chantel was the one riding shotgun in the 19-year-old singer’s rented $180,000 Lamborghini Gallardo sports car. And she was with him when cops pulled him over for drag racing at 4 am.
Her presence at the scene immediately touched off a scramble to find out who she is. As it turns out she’s a tough club banger, who’s apparently not afraid to mix it up if she has to. She also has a penchant for partying a little too hard, according to reports of her five arrests.
The most serious charge occurred in Feb. 2011; she was arrested for misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon. She’d stabbed a woman in the arm “during a physical altercation,” according to court records. Charges were dropped by the victim. And, she has her own DUI arrest.
In all likelihood, she and Bieber just buddied up for the night. But they have a connection.
Jefferies dated Bieber pal, rapper Lil’ Twist. She’s also been linked with Diddy’s son Justin Combs and Philadelphia Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson.
Her modeling career is totally legit. The 5-foot, 6-inch tall North-Carolina native is signed with Wilhelmina modeling agency.
The agency reps, or has in the past repped, top models like Coco Rocha, Kendall Jenner, Pam Dawber, Lauren Hutton, Patti Hansen, wife of Rolling Stone Keith Richards and a slew of celebrities.
