Chantel Jeffries isn’t too concerned with her ex Justin Bieber’s love life: She’s got a music career to worry about!
“I feel like people don’t really ask me anymore. … I’m pretty chill. I don’t really mind. People don’t really bother me about it anymore. I’m happy for him,” the 26-year-old DJ told Us Weekly exclusively about her ex at the Marcell von Berlin launch party in West Hollywood on Thursday, November 15, where she spun tunes for the crowd. “So it’s all good.”
Jeffries and Bieber, 24, briefly got together in 2014 before rekindling their romance in July 2016. The “Love Yourself” crooner, however, went on to reconnect with Hailey Baldwin in June 2018, and popped the question a month later. The pair quietly tied the knot at a New York City courthouse in September.
While Bieber may be off the market, the “Wait” singer is still searching for her other half.
“I just feel like someone that’s generally a best friend and has similar interests. I’m really busy with my schedule,” Jeffries told Us on Thursday of her ideal match. “Someone who’s understanding of that is really important, and someone that I can learn from, because I always feel like, when you’re learning, you’re growing, and I don’t ever want to be like stagnant, so I think it’s really cool.”
Jeffries also revealed she recently went out on a date.
“I don’t know if it was really a date, but I was with a friend, and we went salsa dancing, which was really fun, and we actually stumbled upon it, which is really cool. We had no idea,” she told Us. “It was like this really interesting bar in downtown, and it had a live Latin jazz band. So they had like someone teaching, an instructor teaching salsa dancing, which I had never done before. So that was really fun. But kind of anything that’s activities. We get time to talk, and also you get time to try out a new skill, which is fun too.”
Jeffries is also plenty busy in the career department. In addition to deejaying tunes at events like the Marcell party (“I kind of gathered up a bunch of really cool Eurodance songs, and some like disco house, and French house. Going with a theme, for sure,”) the DJ has some new tunes in the works, one of which is a collaboration with YG. “So I have a really cool hip hop song coming out, a really cool house song that I’m working on, and another more like pop song, kind of like the other stuff that I’ve been doing,” she told Us. “I get inspiration from different types of music when I’m traveling and what I’m listening to at the time. So whatever ends up coming about from that, I’ll always like have someone that I think will fit best.”
