Chantel Jeffries, 21, the model who was with Justin Bieber, 19, in his rented Lamborghini when he was arrested in Miami for driving under the influence last week, is now speaking out about reports she claims are untrue regarding her alleged criminal history, according to a July 29, 2014 E! News report.

Jeffries told E! in a statement that she has been “overwhelmed by the negative attention” she has received in the media since the incident with Bieber.

She continued, “My family and I are particularly upset about the false accusations which have been published concerning my criminal history.”

The model noted, “…I have not been arrested five times… nor am I guilty of physically assaulting anyone, in any way shape or form… 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.”

She asked that the public and the media consider “the impact their disparaging comments have on the individual; especially when their comments are inaccurate.”

E! notes that Jeffries’ lawyer has stated she has only had traffic violations.

TMZ reported she was arrested at the age of 18 for assault, but the case was dropped due to lack of evidence.
