The wife of “hot felon” Jeremy Meeks says she is divorcing him, one week after steamy photos emerged of him kissing an heiress onboard a yacht off the coast of Turkey.
Melissa Meeks, who thought her handsome model husband was working on a photo shoot, told the Daily Mail she was “humiliated” by the photos and says her “world has been torn apart.”
The 38-year-old nurse said her husband, a felon who served prison time and rose to Internet fame over his booking photo, returned to their California home last week and the two argued on the front porch.
“He kept apologizing – not for the affair, but for the way I learned about it. I feel humiliated, not just because my husband was caught with another woman but for the fact they were so brazen about it. He told me, ‘I didn’t mean it to happen like this.’ Those pictures will haunt me forever,” she told the British paper.
“He kept saying, ‘I’m sorry, you didn’t deserve this.’ We talked about divorce. I him I didn’t think the marriage could be saved. He agreed. The marriage is over,” she said.
Meeks was seen cavorting with Chloe Green, the daughter of billionaire retailer Sir Philip Green, whose holdings include the Top Shop chain.
The two were photographed on a luxury vessel off Bodrum, Turkey.
Meeks has been married for eight years. He and Melissa have a son together, and she has two children from a previous relationship.
