"Hot Felon" Jeremy Meeks is making news again. The man, whose mugshot caused a viral frenzy in 2014, was deported when traveling to London. As the Daily Mail reports, the 32-year-old was heading overseas for modeling jobs.
Apparently, Meeks was detained by border officials at Heathrow Airport and banned from entering the country. He claims that he filed all the correct paperwork and had a letter from his parole officer. The publication obtained photos of the handsome Meeks sitting in a holding area before being sent back to the United States.
"We went into the UK and we went through immigration and they detained Jeremy," shared Meek's manager, Jim Jordan. "He wasn't arrested but they deported him out of the country. They wouldn't let him come into the country. He is really upset. He was police-escorted onto the plane."
Back in 2014, Meeks became an international sensation with his smoldering mugshot. Known as the "Hot Felon" and #PrisonBae, he was sentenced to 27 months in jail for weapons possession as a felon. Upon release in 2016, he's been courted by the fashion world for runway and print work.
