The estranged wife of “Hot Convict” Jeremy Meeks is devastated after her inmate-turned-model husband left her for another woman.
Melissa Meeks — who was married to Jeremy for eight years — says she was stunned to learn he wanted to break up after photos emerged of him getting close with Topshop heiress Chloe Green.
“It was very, very heartbreaking for me,” Melissa, 38, said Monday on the British talk show “This Morning.”
“I had no indication he was looking for another relationship,” she said.
Meet ‘Hot Convict’ Jeremy Meeks
Jeremy Meeks — who earned the nicknames “Hot Convict” and “Hot Felon” after his smoldering mugshot went viral in 2014 — signed a modeling contract while he was incarcerated and started a career in the field after being released last year.
Photos surfaced in July showing Jeremy, 33, and Green, 26, making out on a yacht in Turkey while he was on a work-related trip, a scandal Melissa says her husband regrets.
“He was just apologetic for how things came out,” she said on the morning show.

Melissa appeared to address the scandal by reposting a fuming, cryptic Instagram post in July.
“I fed mouths that talked s–t about me. I wiped tears from the same people that caused mines (sic). Picked up people that tried to knock me down,” the Instagram post reads.” Did favors for those who couldn’t do s–t. Been there for the one’s (sic) that left me.”
Jeremy and Green have been seen together frequently since the initial photos of them kissing emerged in early July.
