Miley Cyrus' homeless VMAs date is a wanted man
Miley Cyrus surprised the world with her demure appearance and behavior at the 2014 MTV VMAs, and even more surprising was the fact that she allowed her homeless friend Jesse Helt to accept her Video of the Year award for "Wrecking Ball."
The world was touched by Jesse Helt's emotional acceptance speech, in which he addressed the number of homeless youths living on the streets of the U.S. However, it turns out that Helt is a wanted man.
Apparently Helt is on the run from police after he broke probation, following a failed drugs test.
According to the Daily Mail's MailOnline, Helt told them that he is looking forward to heading home to Oregon to see his mother, but he may also face jail time because in 2011, a judge issued a warrant for his arrest for repeatedly violating the terms of his probation.
Helt has been arrested before. He previously spent 30 days in county jail after he broke into the home of a man who he claimed had sold "bad marijuana" to him. In addition to his time in county jail, he was placed on supervised probation for 12 months, fined $572 and ordered to pay restitution.
Helt's troubles don't end there. In February 2012, he made the Most Wanted List for Polk County, Oregon. He was listed as No. 2 on the list for first-degree trespass, the MailOnline reports.
But now he's headed home. Helt apparently boarded an Alaska Airlines flight from Los Angeles International Airport on Monday night to go back home — an economy-class trip which was allegedly paid for by Miley Cyrus.
"I miss my mom. I haven't seen her in three years," Helt confessed to the MailOnline. "I've been suffering since I was the age of 13, but I’m glad to be back home," he added.
Helt's mom Linda Helt also commented on her son's troubles, saying, "Jesse's had ups and downs like anybody else... He didn't wanna give up and run on home to Mommy, but only he knows the reasons; that's for him to say.
"He wanted to be in Los Angeles and he had opportunities and he took them, but you know, he's had his ups and downs like anybody else. It was his choice. He was always welcome, he could always come back any time. If he needed help, I'd help him. We help one another," she added.
