After his blatant affair with a billionaire heiress last week, Jeremy "Prison Bae" Meeks is facing the consequences. The inmate-turned-model, who became a viral sensation last year on account of his smoldering mugshot, was caught on social media canoodling with Topshop owner Chloe Green in Turkey despite having a wife and three kids at home. When his wife saw the pics, she was "devastated" and has now filed for divorce.
In the tradition of f*ckboys everywhere, it seems Prison Bae doesn't much care.
In a new interview with the Daily Mail, Melissa Meeks says she was "humiliated" to see the photos of Meeks on a yacht with Green, when she believed he was in Turkey for work.
“He kept saying, ‘I’m sorry, you didn’t deserve this,’” she said about their confrontation after photos were published. “We talked about divorce. I told him I didn’t think the marriage could be saved. He agreed. The marriage is over.”
Melissa says she learned of the affair after a stranger online tagged her in an Instagram photo of Jeremy kissing the 26-year-old. “I went into shock. I felt nauseated. It was like a bomb had gone off and my whole world had been blown apart,” she recalls. “I’d never heard of Chloe Green. I thought Jeremy was working.”
Melissa says she wasn't able to get in touch with her husband for several days. When he finally reached out, he said his phone wasn't working, despite the fact that he had managed to post to social media several times during his illicit vacation.
She finally got her chance to confront him when he came to pick up their three kids for Fourth of July. “We had it out on the doorstep,” Melissa said. “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.”
