UPDATE 6:05 PM EST: Lauren’s attorney, Dina LaPolt, is saying the 5H star actually WASN’T arrested over the incident.
The lawyer explained the 20-year-old was only given a citation for the bust, saying:
“Lauren Jauregui was not arrested and detained as reported, but simply given a citation for possession of marijuana and released on her own recognizance.”
The legal rep continued:
“She will address the matter appropriately through the legal system. This will not interfere with any future scheduled performances or activities.”
We’re very curious to find out how this will all play out!
Oops! Fifth Harmony‘s Lauren Jauregui got herself a rap sheet on Tuesday night!
According to TMZ, the songstress was busted for possession of what appeared to be marijuana in her carry-on luggage at Dulles airport in Washington D.C.!
This is not a good look for the girl band!
Their sources say the 20-year-old was stopped by TSA for a secondary search when the baggie was found. Lauren was then almost immediately arrested.
So far, there’s been no word on whether she’ll be performing with the rest of the girls in Brazil on Wednesday night.
Interestingly enough, she has taken to Instagram on Wednesday to plead for people to help civilians in Aleppo, Syria. She wrote:
