“Hot Felon” Jeremy Meeks was caught kissing Topshop heiress Chloe Green last week, which may ultimately lead to the end of his 8-year marriage to wife Melissa. After his mugshot went viral when the Stockton Police Department posted the photo to Facebook in 2014, he landed a modeling gig and walked at New York Fashion Week this year. His wife was reportedly “furious” over his fame in 2014 and now she’s ready to call it quits. But how much money has Meeks’ modeling gig earned him?
According to his profile on Models.com, Meeks walked in various shows for Philipp Pein this year. He also graced the cover of man About Town.
The agency didn’t disclose how much money Meeks earned for those gigs, but if he were to be hired by exclusive fashion designers like Armani or Versace, he could make $15,000 to $30,000 a month, which translates to $180,000 to $360,000 annually, TMZ wrote in 2014.

“I went into shock. I felt nauseated. It was like a bomb had gone off and my whole world had been blown apart,” she recalled. “I’d never heard of Chloe Green. I thought Jeremy was working.”
She couldn’t reach her husband for days. He claimed his phone wasn’t working, but Meeks posted numerous photos of his Turkish vacation to Instagram. Melissa didn’t speak with Meeks until he returned to the U.S. and he asked to spend time with his two kids, Jeremy Jr., 7, and Robert, 11.
“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,…
