20 year old Lauren Jauregui has been stopped by TSA at Dulles International Airport outside Washington, D.C., after security found marijuana in her bag.
She was released after receiving a citation for marijuana possession, and joined the rest of the group en route to Sao Paulo, Brazil, to perform at the VEVO FunPopFun Festival on Wednesday night. (wrong: instead she went to Atlanta join their choreographer Sean Bankhead for the premiere of Fox "Star")
"Lauren Jauregui was not arrested and detained as reported, but simply given a citation for possession of marijuana and released on her own recognizance," Dina LaPolt, attorney for Fifth Harmony and Lauren Jauregui, said in a statement. "She will address the matter appropriately through the legal system. This will not interfere with any future scheduled performances or activities." (she still missed the show in Brazil)
After news broke, Fifth Harmony fans and a few celebs began circulating the hashtag #FreeLauren on Twitter. (lmao)
can't believe she was the top trend on twitter ww lmao. #freelauren but her ass never even got close to jail. all she got is a lecture and she was good to go. did your lawyer ever saved you from trouble ONTD?
they always knew
