After rising to fame as Miley Cyrus' date at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Jesse Helt once again made headlines after police revealed his criminal records. Recently, the 22-year-old homeless man went home to his hometown, Mirror reported.
As Helt arrived in the home in Salem, Ore. that reportedly belongs to his mother, deputies from Polk County Sheriff's Department were also arriving at the house.
Prior to this, Helt's mother revealed Cyrus gave her son money for a plane ticket and he son had flown back to be with his family, Telegraph reported.
When police arrived at his mother's Salem home, Helt was not at the house and the police left without being able to detain him.
Whether Helt has been taken by the authorities is yet to be confirmed.
When Cyrus introduced the man who picked up her VMA Video of the Year award trophy for her song "Wrecking Ball," no other details were revealed about Helt except that he is homeless and a struggling model.
But after Helt's mug shots emerged, reports revealed that a judge issued a warrant for his arrest in 2011 for repeatedly violating his probation coming from previous charges including criminal trespassing and criminal mischief, E! Online has learned.
Recent court documents revealed Helt failed to report to his probation officer, take a drug test, follow his curfew and finish his community service hours on numerous occasions.
A year before the arrest warrant was issued, he was first arrested for attempting to break into an apartment. He reportedly accused the apartment's tenant of selling him bad marijuana.
Leaving Oregon, Helt then moved to Los Angeles where he became homeless while seeking work as a model.
After the news about Helt's criminal record broke, Cyrus quickly took to Twitter to defend his VMA date who she met when she visited a homeless youth center in Hollywood called My Friend's Place.
"People who are homeless have lived very hard lives. Jesse included," she wrote.
"The media never fails to disappoint. You've chosen to go after Jesse instead of covering the issue of youth homelessness," she also tweeted and later on accused the media of obsessing over one homeless man's legal issue.
