Chantel Jeffries is slamming rumors that she’s dating Justin Bieber, revealing that she was never romantically involved with the singer.
Jeffries received media attention after she was photographed seated alongside Bieber when he was pulled over for DUI and drag racing in January.
The model opened up to E! News Tuesday night to address the gossip. “We’re friends,” Jeffries told the outlet. ”Do you kiss your friends, Terrence?” Jeffries asked. “Do you sleep in the same bed as your friends?”
Chantel continued to defend Bieber, saying that there’s a lot of “misconceptions about Justin,” adding that the reason they went to Panama (together) just one day after Bieber was released was because he was “just happy to be out.”
But what about all those rumors that Chantel was just another victim of “Bieber Fever,” with some critics even calling her a gold digger? Her reaction: “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.”
