Miley Cyrus' Date To The VMAs Has An Incredible Background! Find Out The Inspiring Details HERE!

the background of miley cyrus date revealed

Wow, this story gets more inspirational by the minute!

At the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, Miley Cyrus brought attention to the plight of homeless youth when she allowed a former homeless teen, Jesse Helt, to accept her award for Video of the Year.

While we heard a snippet of Jesse's story in the acceptance speech, the fleshed out details of his experience as a homeless teen in Los Angeles is absolutely incredible.

Originally from Salem, Oregon, Jesse moved to El Lay as a teenager to make it as a model.

Jesse's mom, Linda Helt, revealed:

"Jesse wanted to be in Los Angeles and he had opportunities and he took them, but you know, he's had his ups and downs like anybody else. He didn't wanna give up and run on home to mommy."

Talk about persistence! Jesse really went to extreme lengths to achieve his dreams!

While Jesse spent some time at the homeless shelter, A Friend's Place, there were times when his situation turned especially drastic.

Linda confessed:

"One time he called me and said, 'Mom, I'm living in a bush!'"

Wow, how intense! We're glad Jesse's life is now on an upswing!

Jesse's momma also revealed her son's plans to return home for a visit after Miley gifted him with some cash.

Aw, we're so glad Jesse will have the opportunity to reconnect with his mom! How amazing!

    STOPIT Perez this kid isn't homeless. He is a wannabe actor that can go home anytime he wants. This is BS to all the homeless that are forced into the street due to abuse or drug addiction.

    This guy is a BAD inspiration. Mileys good deed prop for the world to see is a FRAUD. Not your normal innocent homeless guy. He has a drug deal gone bad warrent out for his arrest for breaking and entering. Perfect guy for the likes of Miley. She just cant wear jewelry on their dates.

    I was expecting more details on the "incredible background" part. Not much there besides the obvious; that he's homeless and apparently has been for a while.

    So in other words - he wasn't really homeless. He had a home to go to where he was safe and welcome. So she chose him because he is good looking and can perform. Just like her sitting on the stage pretending to cry. That was about as convincing as her emotions in her Wrecking Ball video. Good cause yes - but it is so very contrived.

    Is he living in Miley's bush or was that a reference to marijuana? Mileys Hero is a farce.

    Just reported that he is a fugitive in Oregon. The law is looking for him now and will arrest him. So much for an inspirational story. Leave it up to Miley.

    He's wanted by the Oregon State police. Check out KGW News website

    He is wanted in Polk county Oregon for two charges. One is trespassing and the other is criminal mischief. Chances are these are charges he picked up due to being homeless. Granted he has to "pay" for his crimes, he isn't a horrible person. I'm sure Miley will bail him out of jail anyway.
