Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui Just Got Busted For Weed
Well, Harmonizers, what a wild ride 2016 has been.
There was the alleged dramz between Normani Kordei and Camila Cabello, Lauren Jauregui unexpectedly coming out, and both Camila and Lauren venturing out to solo projects.
And now, to wrap up the year, Lauren has been cited for allegedly smuggling weed through an airport. While original reports said she was arrested, Fifth Harmony’s lawyer, Dina LaPolt, issued a statement saying Lauren was “simply given a citation for possession of marijuana and released on her own recognizance.”
Fifth Harmony performed at Hot 99.5’s Jingle Ball in Washington, D.C. on Dec. 12, and were scheduled to perform tonight in Brazil. While boarding a plane last night at Dulles International Airport in Virginia, Lauren was stopped and searched, and a baggie of pot was found in her carry-on.
I’m torn between feeling like a proud mom whose daughter has just won the spelling bee, and feeling disappointed.
Like, c’mon Lauren! I would think Brazil probably has much better weed than wherever you got the stuff you had, right? And although recreational weed is legal in DC proper for everyone over 21, Lauren was in Virginia. Weed is still illegal in Virginia.
But also, we’ve known about Lauren’s love affair with Mary Jane all along. And, as everyone knows, I’m a huge proponent of all things weed and I love people who feel the same way. So, no judgement here for sure.
Just be smart, bb’s!
