Miley Cyrus' Homeless VMAs 2014 Date Jesse Helt Turns Himself In to Oregon Jail

Miley Cyrus' Homeless VMAs 2014 Date Jesse Helt Turns Himself In to Oregon Jail

Jesse Helt, the once homeless man who accompanied Miley Cyrus to the 2014 MTV VMAs this past weekend, turned himself into police in Dallas, Oregon and posted $2,500 bail after news broke that he had an outstanding warrant out for his arrest.

Jesse Helt turned himself in tonight to Polk County authorities to address his outstanding legal issues,” Jesse‘s friend Trevor Neilson told the AP via email. “Miley Cyrus will be assisting him with this process, and they both are committed to working to help the other 1.6 million youth who experience homelessness in America each year.”

Back in 2011, Jesse pleaded guilty to misdemeanor criminal mischief and criminal trespass, where he was sentenced to jail and probation. Jesse violated the sentence, and an arrest warrant was issued.

This past weekend, Miley sent her date on stage to accept an award on her behalf for the homeless youth in America. Watch the enlightening acceptance speech here if you missed it.

    so he turned himself in knowing Miley would take care of his bail? I’m confused. I know it was a nice gesture, but I almost feel like Miley did it so the public would change their perspective of her. Obviously, the girl can change and grow but I thought it was slightly awkward at the awards…

    @kiley That’s exactly why she did it. The whole thing was PR stunt in an attempt to do damage control on her image and make people forget about her antics at last year’s VMA’s. Of course she’s going to help the guy, but not because it’s the right thing to do. Because, it’s all about saving face and her image.

    I agree. I was almost disgusted when they showed her bawling while he was speaking on stage. I just didn’t think the VMAs was the right place to do it, but of course it was for PR… I loved Sam Smith and Katy Perry’s faces during it. They were thinking, “wtf is this??”
