Justin Bieber has been in Panama for days. We don’t have access to the photos of Bieber wearing his amazing leather diaper shorts on the beach, but Chantel Jeffries has provided some scenic beach views via her Instagram account. Chantel is the woman who was with Biebs in Miami during his drag racing arrest. She’s a “model” by profession (I’m not sure the art of the selfie counts, but she is represented by Wilhelmina), and I’ve included some photos of her at the end of this post. She also has her own arrest record, which includes five arrests (one for stabbing another woman during a fight). Basically she’s bad news. Chantel seeks career advancement by hanging out with Biebs. Before she joined him in Panama, she was shopping her “night with Bieber” for interviews. This girl is all business:
Justin Bieber’s latest girlfriend, Chantel Jeffries, has been trying to sell her story for $20,000 — but abruptly pulled out of TV interviews after spending the weekend with the 19-year-old pop star in Panama.
Multiple sources tell Page Six that a rep for Bieber’s drag-racing babe had reached out to the weekly magazines and to producers of shows including “GMA,” “Today” and “Inside Edition” to talk about her night with the teen star, which ended in his DUI arrest and infamous glassy-eyed mug shot.
One source said, “She hired an attorney and was negotiating a deal with the weekly magazines and the big TV shows. She wanted $20,000 plus a guaranteed mention of her modeling career.”
Another insider tells us, “Chantel was talking to all the networks, but they refused to pay her. Yesterday [Monday] she abruptly pulled out of all the discussions.” The reason: a romantic weekend with Bieber in Panama. A bikini-wearing Jeffries was spotted on the beach with Bieber at Punta Chame. The star’s rep declined to comment and Jeffries’ rep didn’t respond.

Ha. As if on cue, Chantel’s lawyer contacted the Mail and said Chantel was never trying to earn money for appearances. The lawyer admits she considered going on the Today show but pulled out — I guess when she got the Panama invite. Chantel may be dangerous, but she’s not dumb. No long-term romance will be had because Bieber has a date with justice on Valentine’s Day. Really. That’s the date of his arraignment. He will plead non guilty, and we’ll see what comes of the DUI, expired license, and resisting arrest charges. Some more tidbits in bullet point form:
* There are various rumors circulating that the Miami Beach police have dropped all driving charges against Bieber. The PD cleared things up on their Twitter account. None of the charges are dropped.

* Egggate will go nowhere. TMZ reports that police can’t find any hard evidence from surveillance video or Bieber’s cell phone. I guess Bieber’s voice on the video isn’t good enough. Bieber is now planning on putting his Calabasas home up for sale because he feels so harassed.
* During the Panama trip, Scooter Braun and Usher pow-wowed with Biebers. Radar Online says they want Bieber to take a break from music. Biebs is open to the break but wants to use the time to open a tattoo parlor with his cling-on deadbeat dad. A break isn’t going to help Bieber at all but will only give him more free time to get arrested again.
* Billy Ray Cyrus has delivered some unsolicited advice (via Access Hollywood). The mulleted one wants to “invite Bieber to come down and chill out with me, maybe in Tennessee. Let’s go up to the teepee, build a fire, step away and just, you know, maybe take a break for a little bit, just think about what’s important. Get back to life. … Build a fire, count the deer and the hawks and relax a little bit.” Right. Because Billy Ray is so good at keeping his own kid from going off the rails.
