In 2014, Jeremy Meeks blew up after his mugshot went viral. Known as the “hot felon” and #prisonbae, Meeks became an internet celebrity solely based on one picture. And oh, what a picture it was! Those icy eyes! Those cheekbones! Smoldering!
But the hot convict is a convict no more. On March 9, Meeks was released from prison (where he was being held for gun possession after serving an earlier bid for grand theft). And he came home to a new manager and a modeling contract. Read on to see what he's been up to.
Meeks was held under house arrest for a few months. Doesn’t that fulfill a lot of people’s fantasies? Imagine keeping this dude in your house all the time. Doesn’t sound THAT bad.
He kept looking hot while still inside — or at least very nearby — his home.
On July 8, Meeks became a free man. He celebrated by going outside, which seems appropriate.
Look at all of the places he gets to go now!
He even hit the Beverly Hills Hotel. Feels like a major upgrade from prison.
He also appears to be living in an amazing house.
And he went to another fabulous LA hotel, the Chateau Marmont.
Jeremy's kids, pictured alongside his wife, Melissa, also have his bright blue eyes. Genetics, man.
His sons were clowns for Halloween! He was…hot?
Shirtless family time.
And most recently, Meeks was #thankful. This was either a Thanksgiving picture or he just really loves trains.
We are also thankful that Jeremy Meeks can now freely use social media. As presented with this evidence here (something we think he is used to), these updates are priceless.
