It's official. "Hot Felon" Jeremy Meeks is getting a divorce. According to TMZ, the handsome felon-turned-model has filed for divorce from his wife of eight years Melissa Meeks.
The 33-year-old model is requesting joint legal and physical custody of the couple's 7-year-old son, Jeremy Jr. She has a child from a previous relationship as well.
Over the summer, Meeks filed for separation from his wife, who stayed with him during his incarceration. Four days after the date of separation, Meeks was spotted vacationing with Chloe Green (seen below). Green is an heiress whose father owns the retail outlet TopShop. Meeks and Green have since been seen all over the world, kissing on yachts and beaches. The pair was spotted everywhere from Cannes to Israel. Meeks has also modeled for TopShop.
Jeremy Meeks earned the name "Hot Felon" back in 2014 when his mugshot from the Stockton California Police Department was posted to Facebook and then went viral. Meeks was convicted of federal charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm as well as grand theft. He was released from Mendota Federal Correctional Institution in March 2016 and then he pivoted into a career as a model.
Meeks made his runway debut at New York Fashion Week in February 2017 at the Philipp Plein show. Vogue described Meeks as having "glinting crystal blue eyes, Greek god–like chiseled jaw, and lone teardrop tattoo" on his face and lauded the "buff bad boy."
