Jessi Smiles, Vine superstar, tweeted a very cryptic message which is starting to make sense now if TMZ connected the dots correctly. “Be careful of who you trust. Always be cautious of your safety. Be strong and don’t let your guard down.” Here’s more details courtesy of TMZ:

Vine megastar Curtis Lepore was in court Tuesday … facing charges of raping Vine star girlfriend Jessi Smiles while she was sleeping, TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us … Lepore was arrested in October — and released on $100,000 bail — but it flew under the radar.  During Tuesday’s hearing he pled not guilty.

Here’s the back story.  We’re told Jessi flew to see Curtis in L.A. last August but things didn’t go well and they broke up. Jessi stayed in L.A. and a few days later got a concussion while shooting a Vine video.

Sources close to Jessi tell TMZ … Curtis then called her and offered to help her while she was recovering.  The victim claims Curtis came over, Jessi fell asleep and that’s when he allegedly raped her
