Jeremy Meeks, the felon whose notably attractive mugshot went viral, is now facing some marital troubles after images of him kissing Topshop heiress Chloe Grace Also went viral.
In a series of images originally posted to The Daily Mail, Meeks was seen getting close with Grace, whose billionaire father Sir Philip Green owns British fashion companies Topshop and Topman. After posting about the budding relationship, Grace deleted her Instagram account.
The Daily Mail then followed up with Melissa Meeks, Jeremy's wife. She says that their "marriage is over," and that she had "no idea" her husband was with Grace at the time.
"I know it takes two to tango but she knew he was married. To me, that's unforgivable," Melissa said. "My whole world has been torn apart by this. What do I tell our children? My heart is broken. My marriage wasn't perfect but I thought it could be saved, until this happened."
"What they did destroyed my entire world," she adds. "Did either of them think about the children and how this will affect them? They're the innocent victims in this. And so am I. They weren't even trying to be discreet. I've been publicly humiliated, which makes the pain so much worse."
Melissa said that she had no idea of the affair, nor had she heard of Grace until a stranger sent her a photo of the heiress and her husband together. Jeremy had told Melissa he was going on a business trip in Turkey.
"Fame changed him," Melissa claims. "His head was turned. Sex sells. He's a sexy guy and he didn't want his wife there. He started hanging out with celebrities. I wanted to be part of his world. We argued about it. He spent increasing amounts of time away from home and when he came home we rowed. We went through ups and downs. Did we discuss separating? Yes. But as far as I was concerned we were trying to make our marriage work."
The two are now planning their divorce.
