She's not happy...
TMZ reports that Chantel Jeffries is suing New York Daily News over reports that she had a "long criminal record". Jeffries is best known as the woman who was with Justin Bieber when he was arrested in Miami.
She calls herself a model, student and entrepreneur. She filed a defamation lawsuit against the paper, claiming they "maliciously and intentionally" printed a story talking about five prior arrests, including misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon. The newspaper said she stabbed a woman. However the case was dropped when the alleged victim wouldn't cooperate with prosecutors.
She wants the paper to stop making these claims and is suing for unspecified damages. She claims she's not the "mastermind of any alleged criminal activity."
