The “Hot Felon’s” estranged wife has opened up about husband’s infidelity during her first interview, which aired on This Morning. She told the hosts of the show that she was shocked when photos of her husband kissing Topshop heiress Chloe Green surfaced over the summer. “Hot Felon” Jeremy Meeks, 33, was still married to his Melissa, 38, when the pictures hit the tabloids.
Melissa, a mother of three, broke down in tears on the show Monday. She said she still misses her husband of eight years. Melissa said she had no inclination that Meeks was seeking out another relationship.
“People who are married, you go through your ups and downs, I thought it was a new chapter in our lives, we'd have to get over the hump and it would be fine,” Melissa said in the interview, as reported by the Daily Mail. She said her now estranged husband was apologetic to her when the photos of him on a yacht with Green, a billionaire, surfaced.
Not long after, Meeks filed for divorce, as reported by Us Weekly. Since then, he has been public with his affection for Green, often while on exotic vacations with the heiress.
Meeks became famous after his mugshot went viral in 2015. He was arrested and later sentenced to 27 months in federal prison for gang activity and obstruction of justice. The mugshot led to modeling gigs.
Melissa said that even though she is heartbroken, the “Hot Felon” still has a relationship with her children.
“He still sees the kids. They're still very involved with each other. That's still positive for the children.”
