Miley Cyrus has helped to raise over $200,000 in just one day for a Los Angeles homeless shelter after making it aware at the VMA’s.

The “Wrecking Ball” singer sent her ‘date’, Jesse Helt to accept her “Video of the Year” award at the VMA’s on Sunday, August 24 in Inglewood, California, and he revealed that he was homeless onstage.

At the end of his acceptance speech, Helt directed the public to Miley’s Facebook page and asked fans to donate to her fundraising campaign for My Friend’s Place.

On Monday, August 25, the contributions reached $200,000 and they are still growing, according to the New York Times.

Whoops! Did Miley Cyrus mess up? It is very possible because reports are saying now that her “homeless” date, Jesse Helt is wanted on probation violations in the state of Oregon and there is an active warrant out for his arrest.

Mr. Helt was on probation for a 2010 burglary attempt to which he pleaded guilty for criminal trespass and criminal mischief.

Miley is said to have met Mr. Helt via the Hollywood homeless center My Friend’s Place while he was in California seeking to be a model. It also being reported that after the VMAs that Miley gave Mr. Helt money so that he could go home to Oregon to visit his Mother.

Regardless of Mr. Helt’s legal issues it should not detract from the message about the homeless in America. It is a real problem that needs a solution.
