Jeremy Meeks is bailing on his marriage for a new woman.
The “Hot Felon” has officially filed for divorce from his wife, Melissa, after eight years, reports E! News.
Per court documents, the ex-convict turned model is seeking joint legal and physical custody of their 7-year-old son, Jeremy Meeks Jr.
Earlier this summer, Meeks was photographed kissing Topshop heiress Chloe Green on a yacht in Turkey. Melissa only became aware of the extramarital affair after photos of the pair surfaced online.
In an interview with the Mail Online, Melissa deemed Meeks’ actions unforgivable.
“I know it takes two to tango but she knew he was married. 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 told the publication. “What sort of woman would do something like this to another woman? My marriage wasn’t perfect but I thought it could be saved until this happened.”
She added, “Of course I’m angry at [Chloe Green]. 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.”
It’s been reported that Meeks and Green are interested in taking their relationship to the next level.
“Jeremy wants to marry Chloe eventually,”a source told E! News. “He wants to make sure everything is sealed shut with his ex first.”
The source added, “Jeremy has changed and moved on from his wife. He wants to focus on the future with Chloe. He will always support his children. He is very in love with Chloe. Chloe family treats and supports them as a couple.”
The duo sparked engagement rumors after Green was photographed on several occasions wearing a diamond sparkler on her ring finger. A rep for Green dismissed the claims.
