Chantel Jeffries was one of Justin Bieber’s constant companions last year, but proved she knows how to make a statement on her own as she sunned herself in Miami Beach.

The 21-year-old model was showing off her curves in a seriously skimpy bikini as she took a dip in the ocean alongside a few female friends.

Describing herself on Twitter as a “student, model, eyebrow connoisseur, animal lover, and deep thinker”, Chantel Jeffries hails from Jacksonville, North Carolina.

As well as loving bikinis, swimming and selfies, the wannabe model, who says she lives in Miami, Los Angeles and her home state North Carolina, is also a fan of twerking.

Chantel also has a bengal cat called Marley and she’s a huge fan of Kim Kardashian so much so that she uses the reality star’s name at Starbucks.
