Summary: The viral “Hot Felon” will be officially single soon. 

In 2014, a violent repeat criminal had his mugshot taken after an arrest, and what happened next is a testament to how low our society can go. “Hot Felon” Jeremy Meeks became a viral sensation after his attractive mugshot went viral, and following his prison release, he enjoyed a modeling career and an adulterous tryst with a socialite.


While his life has become quite glamorous thanks to his good looks, there is one woman out there who isn’t happy for his good fortune–his wife of eight years whom he had been cheating on.

“To me, that’s unforgivable. My whole world has been torn apart by this. What do I tell our children? My heart is broken,” Melissa Meeks told the Daily Mail. “My marriage wasn’t perfect but I thought it could be saved, until this happened.”

Meeks, 33, captured the hearts of thirsty women and gay men with his piercing blue eyes and chiseled cheekbones, and after he was free from prison, the gorgeous criminal became a runway model, strutting his stuff at Milan Fashion Week.

Meeks’ wife, Melissa, had been with him during his  2014 arrest for possession of a firearm, but she was shocked when photos of Meeks with his new woman, TopShop heiress Chloe Green, surfaced online. Melissa planned to divorce her husband, but upon hearing the news, Meeks struck first and filed divorce papers in California on Monday.

Meeks is seeking joint custody of their 7-year-old son and a separation of assets.

At Milan Fashion Week, Meeks partied hard, mingling with celebrities and making out with Green on a yacht in Turkey. Melissa Meeks said that she had believed that her husband was only in Turkey on business, not pleasure.

“He kept saying, ‘I’m sorry, you didn’t deserve this,'” Melissa Meeks said to The Daily Mail. “We talked about divorce. I told him I didn’t think the marriage could be saved. He agreed. The marriage is over.”

Green added to Melissa’s “humiliation” when she posted a picture on social media with her new lover. She captioned the adulterous picture with “Just the Beginning…We appreciate all the love and the hate” before deleting it after receiving backlash.

“I know it takes two to tango, but she knew he was married,” Melissa Meeks said. “To me, that’s unforgivable.”

Green is the daughter of Sir Philip Green, who is worth $5 billion, according to Page Six. While he is a successful businessman, he has a negative reputation in his home country because he unloaded a business and that move resulted in his employees losing their pension plan.

Meeks was arrested in 2014, and he admitted that prior to his online fame, he was a member of the gang, The Crips.
