Divorce: The Hot Felon Turned Model Jeremy Meeks Wants His Freedom Again

Jeremy Meeks divorce

The “hot felon” whose claim to fame was his mug shot, is once again asking for his freedom.

Jeremy Meeks, the jailbird turned runway model, has filed for divorce from his wife of 8 years, Melissa Meeks. Meeks filed for separation back in July after being caught kissing on another woman, TopShop heiress Chloe Green. The two have been inseparable since going public with their romance, and they may be taking it to the next level if Meeks is ready to call it quits on his 8-year marriage.

Meeks and his wife share a 7-year-old son, and he’s requesting joint legal and physical custody, according to TMZ.

The fashion model first came to attention after his 2014 arrest in Stockton, California after police released the mugshot on Facebook, and it went viral.  Labeled the “hot felon,” the 33-year-old soon got a lot of media attention and offers for work.  He was released in 2016, and immediately became a sensation on the runway.

Now Meeks is looking to be a free man once again.
