'Hot Felon' Jeremy Meeks' Wife on His New Relationship With Heiress: 'It Wasn't an Easy Pill to Swallow'
Melissa Meeks said she was "in shock" when she saw photos of her husband aboard a yacht with British heiress Chloe Green.
In an exclusive interview with Inside Edition, the wife of "Hot Felon" Jeremy Meeks has revealed the moment she discovered he was in a relationship with a British heiress.
Melissa Meeks stood by her husband during his prison sentence for possession of a firearm. It was at this time that his handsome mugshot went viral, leading to a modeling contract when he walked free in 2016.
His newfound fame came as a shock to his wife, but she said she wanted him to succeed.
"I was happy for him," Melissa, who has three children with Meeks, told Inside Edition in the interview, which will air on Thursday.
He was soon traveling around the world on modeling assignments. Inside Edition's Jim Moret asked Melissa whether she was ever worried about the allure of money and fame.
"It was a concern," she admitted. "You've heard stories. You've seen stuff happen."
Then it did. In June, photographs emerged showing Meeks getting cozy with Chloe Green, the daughter of British retail billionaire Philip Green, aboard a yacht.
“I was in shock," Melissa said. "I didn’t know what to think. I was hoping it wasn’t true. It wasn't an easy pill to swallow."
Tune in to Inside Edition on Thursday to hear what Melissa wants her estranged husband to know. On Friday, tune in to see her undergo a dramatic makeover to help boost her confidence.
