Talk about a ‘Wrecking Ball’ – Miley Cyrus’ MTV Video Music Awards date is a wanted man.
Apparently, 22-year old Jesse Helt has a warrant out for his arrest in Oregon. According to the associated press, Helt was arrested on charges of criminal mischief, criminal trespass, and burglary in 2010. Reports say Helt broke into a man’s apartment he believed had been selling bad marijuana. At the time, Helt pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 30 days in jail and probation. The warrant was issued in 2011, when he violated probation.
Instead of facing the music, Helt moved to Los Angeles trying to find work as a model. He met Miley Cyrus through the Hollywood homeless shelter, My Friend’s Place. WE wonder if his modeling dreams may soon come true since Miley used him as a pawn in her publicity game when he accepted her award for “Video of the Year.”
“I am accepting this award on behalf of the 1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the United States who are starving, lost, and scared for their lives right now,” Helt said. “I know this because I am one of these people.”
A good cause overshadowed by a dark past – Don’t worry Miley hasn’t taken off during Helt’s time of need, she took to Twitter to say, “People who are homeless have lived very hard lives. Jesse included.”
