Jeremy Meeks, also known as “hot felon” after his jail mugshot shot him stardom, is apparently making a lot of money but sending little to his son, at least according to his former wife.
TMZ reports that Melissa Meeks, the estranged spouse of the felon, filed court documents against him for child and spousal support after he reportedly stopped paying for his son and only visits the 7-year-old boy “maybe 2 days a month.”
According to court documents, Melissa Meeks said her husband “basically lives as a playboy with a rich girlfriend,” Chloe Green, the heir to TopShop.

“I am not yet sure of his income, but I am sure it is more than mine,” Mrs. Meeks wrote in the court documents, explaining why she wasn’t sure how much financial she should seek.
Yet, Melissa estimated that Jeremy could be bringing in a $1 million or more a month, based off of details in his modeling contracts.
Court documents indicate Melissa makes around $10,000 per month as a registered nurse in California. She reportedly claimed her total expenses each month equalled to around $11,000.
The couple split up in June after compromising photos surfaced of Jeremy, aboard a boat with Green. Melissa admitted it was extremely difficult looking at photos of her husband kissing Green and hugging her. Jeremy filed for separation around nine days after the photos surfaced.
“I really didn’t know what to do,” Melissa told Inside Edition in September. “We are talking about my husband that I loved deeply, very deeply, very dearly….I was in shock. I didn’t know what to think. I was hoping it wasn’t true.”
Ultimately, Melissa hired high-profile attorney Lisa Bloom to represent her, who’s helping the heartbroken wife get what she’s “legally entitled to.”
“This is a woman who worked very hard behind the scenes, supporting her family, standing by him during his incarceration and even afterwards and she just wants what she is legally entitled to,” Bloom said.
