Lauren Jauregui ‘given citation’ for drug possession
Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui was reportedly found in possession of marijuana.
The 20-year-old singer was travelling through Washington International Dulles Airport on Tuesday night (13.12.16) where she was stopped at a checkpoint and a bag of what "appeared to be marijuana" was found in her bag, TMZ reports.
However, Lauren’s attorney Dina LaPolt insists the ‘Worth It’ hitmaker was not arrested but was "given a citation".
She said in a statement: "Lauren Jauregui was not arrested and detained as reported, but simply given a citation for possession of marijuana and released on her own recognisance. She will address the matter appropriately through the legal system. This will not interfere with any future scheduled performances or activities."
It comes after Lauren revealed she was bisexual in an open letter soon after the US election results were revealed.
She wrote at the time: "I am a bisexual Cuban-American woman and I am so proud of it. I am proud to be part of a community that only projects love and education and the support of one another ….
"To every single Trump supporter trying to say that voting for Trump does not mean that you are racist, homophobic, sexist, xenophobic, assholes… that you just like the way he didn’t really care what people thought and just said whatever he wanted… that he wasn’t a politician, so he wasn’t part of the establishment and didn’t have corrupt money backing him. This is for you:
"Your words are worthless, because your actions have led to the single-handed destruction of all the progress we’ve made socially as a nation. You have, with your pure ignorance and refusal to understand the way the government and the world works, allowed a power-hungry business tycoon to take over the United States of America. The land of the free, the home of the brave, under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for ALL. You are HYPOCRITES. (sic)"
