Even if you’re not a passionate gossip fiend, you’ve surely heard of Jeremy Meeks. If not by name, then by his face. His infamous mugshot shot to Internet fame a few years back, with people on social media drooling over Meeks’ felonious face by the thousands. This is all happened in 2014.
Originally picked up and convicted of felony possession of firearms, he was signed up as a model by the time he was eventually released in 2016. Since then it’s been the world of high-fashion for “Hot Felon” Meeks, including stints on the runway and photo shoots. And that apparently includes extramarital trysts on yachts with international heiresses. The Daily Mail recently snapped some photos of Meeks on a yacht with British heiress Chloe Green.
Meeks of course is reportedly married and the father of a son with Melissa Meeks, and stepfather of her other two children. Although the current status of their relationship remains their own private business, the tabloid press is making much of this shipboard romance with Green on the waters of Turkey. Green is the daughter of the King of High Street — billionaire British businessman Sir Philip Green — owner of such retail stores as Topshop.
Both Green and Meeks are not keeping it a secret that they’re having a good time — yet neither had publicly posted pictures of each other together, until yesterday.
“Just the Beginning,” Green writes in the caption of her Instagram post. “We appreciate all the love and hate.” Meanwhile all evidence of a relationship with his wife appears to be scrubbed from Meeks’ social media presence.
As for Mrs. Meeks, It hasn’t always been a pleasant ride for Melissa. Even harkening back to his initial rise to infamy in 2014, Melissa Meeks was quite vocal about her displeasure at his notoriety. A friend of hers told news media that she had been “furious” at the attention being paid to Jeremy’s photos and arrest while having to deal with the fact that her husband and father of her two sons was going to jail.
As recently as a few weeks ago Melissa Meeks has posted photos together with Jeremy, but there’s just as many other messages pertaining to what “true love” means and referring to “new beginnings” among a smattering of Tupac Shakur lyrics.
Seeing how public all of the people involved appear to live their lives, we’re reasonably sure there will be more statements, memes, and photos to come in this affair.
