After the cheating scandal went widespread in the media, the wife of the "Hot Mugshot Guy" Jeremy Meeks has finally spoken out.
Jeremy has leveraged his viral fame into a modeling career was off in Turkey when paparazzi caught him making out with Topshop heiress Chloe Green. Meeks' wife, Melissa Meeks, was completely blindsided by this revelation.
"The first I learned of it was when I woke up and checked my phone," Melissa told the Daily Mail. "Some random person I don’t know sent a direct message with the photograph of my husband kissing that woman. I went into shock. I felt nauseated. It was like a bomb had gone off and my whole world had been blown apart. I’d never heard of Chloe Green. I thought Jeremy was working."
Devastated, the mother-of-two confronted Meeks and the two agreed their marriage was over. She says the two will be divorcing.
"He kept saying, 'I’m sorry, you didn’t deserve this,'" she said. "We talked about divorce. I told him I didn’t think the marriage could be saved. He agreed. The marriage is over."
She added, "It’s all been so public. They weren’t even trying to be discreet. I’ve been publicly humiliated, which makes the pain so much worse."
However, Melissa doesn't put all the blame on Jeremy. She's also furious with Green, who she basically describes as a homewrecker.
"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.
"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. 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."
Despite her anger, her biggest area of concern is her two children. The couple has Jeremy Jr, 7, and Melissa's son from a prior relationship Robert, 11. Melissa is left wondering what this whole ordeal will do to them.
"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," she said. "I didn’t want my pain and anger to hurt the children. I am very hurt and angry but those children love their daddy. He’d been away and they missed him."
