The 'Hot Felon' model parts ways with his wife after he was seen canoodling with Chloe Green during a luxurious vacation in Turkey.
Jeremy Meeks, 33, split from his wife Melissa, 38, after his affair with Topshop heiress Chloe Green. Melissa revealed her plan to file for divorce from the convict-turned-model after he was spotted locking lips with Green onboard a superyacht during a recent luxurious vacation in Turkey.
"He kept saying, 'I'm sorry, you didn't deserve this,' " she told The Daily Mail as she remembered confronting him after his affair was exposed online. "We talked about divorce. I told him I didn't think the marriage could be saved. He agreed. The marriage is over."
According to Melissa, she couldn't get in touch with her husband for days and only learned of his affair after a stranger tagged her online. Despite constantly posting photos of his trip on social media, he claimed his phone wasn't working. "I went into shock. I felt nauseated. It was like a bomb had gone off and my whole world had been blown apart," she said. "I'd never heard of Chloe Green. I thought Jeremy was working."
"We had it out on the doorstep," Melissa said of their argument upon his return home. "I told him how devastated and angry I am. 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."
"I know it takes two to tango but she knew he was married," she said. "To me, that's unforgivable. My whole world has been torn apart by this. What do I tell our children? My heart is broken." She added, "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. 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."
Jeremy Meeks, a former gang member, gained fame after his hot mugshot went viral. He has a son with Melissa, who works as a nurse. Melissa also has a daughter and another son from previous relationships and both the kids consider Jeremy as a father figure. Despite her plan for divorce, her Instagram bio still reads "wife to Jeremy Meeks."
