Jeremy Meeks is best known as the 33-year-old former gang member who earned the name “prison bae” and “sexy felon” after his mugshot led to a modeling contract.
Jeremy has now found massive success in the modeling industry and garnered plenty of adoring female fans in the process. But nonetheless, he stayed with his 38-year-old wife, Melissa Meeks.
The couple shares two children together and has grown quite a social media following, posting photos of their adorable family.
It seemed like all was well for the family — until earlier this month…
According to earlier reports, the father of two was caught smooching Topshop heiress Chloe Green on a luxury yacht.

The 26-year-old is the daughter of British billionaire Sir Philip Green, and she wasn’t shy about flaunting their new relationship. The heiress took to Instagram to confirm that it was “just the beginning” of their fling.
The Meeks family stayed quiet about the drama for over a week, and Jeremy was pictured celebrating Independence Day with the family — leading some to believe the waters were still calm.
But Melissa spoke out for the first time on Sunday and dropped a major bombshell about the future of their family.
The mother of two told the Daily Mail that she was “humiliated” by his actions and is filing for divorce from the 33-year-old father of her children. She said:
“He kept saying, ‘I’m sorry, you didn’t deserve this.’ We talked about divorce. I told him I didn’t think the marriage could be saved. He agreed. The marriage is over.”
To make matters worse, Melissa said she found out about the affair when a stranger sent her a picture of Jeremy kissing the heiress on social media. Melissa told the Daily Mail:
“I went into shock. I felt nauseated. It was like a bomb had gone off and my whole world had been blown apart. I’d never heard of Chloe Green. I thought Jeremy was working.”
The mother of two said she has a lot of anger toward the heiress, of whom she wasn’t aware before the cheating scandal:
“Of course I’m angry at her. What she did is unforgivable. And I’m angry at him too. What they did destroyed my entire world.”
But her biggest concern? Their children. She said she is unsure how to tell them the news:
“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.”
No word yet on when the mother of two plans to make the split official, but for now, she’s just trying to get through this “nightmare.”
