Want to know the truth about what really happened between Chantel Jeffries and Justin Bieber in Miami and Panama? Okay, so we haven’t bugged Justin’s hotel room, so we’ll never really know, but this week, Chantel decided to give her side of the story to E! News.

“We’re friends,” the 21-year-old model confirmed when asked whether or not she and Justin had kissed or slept in the same bed. “Do you kiss your friends? Do you sleep in the same bed as your friends?”

And the drug addiction thing? According to Chantel, those rumors are nothing but “misconceptions,” and she insists he hasn’t lost control — although our suspicions say otherwise.

“I’m not around all the time,” Chantel admitted after saying she personally hadn’t seen him do drugs. “In the past I don’t know what’s happened to him, and it’s not really my place to say anything.”

Chantel also shed some light on why the first thing Justin did after he was released from jail was head to Panama for a little R&R. A little strange that someone’s primary concern after an arrest would be vacation, right?

“He was just happy to be out,” Chantel said. “I think he just wanted to get away and have some fun, probably thinking Panama would be a place there wouldn’t be so much attention.”

Either way, Chantel insisted that Justin is a “good person” and she isn’t hanging around him for the perks of being friends with someone so successful (or in an effort to sell information about her new pal), as many have insinuated.

“Guess what? I have my own goals. And I’m focused on those,” she said. “I don’t really need anybody else. I’m like a strong independent woman.”

You tell 'em, girl!
