(Newser) – There's one person who doesn't think "dreamy mugshot guy" is so dreamy anymore: his wife. Jeremy Meeks, who gained fame for his good looks and became a model after his prison stint, is headed to divorce court after Melissa Meeks, his wife of eight years, says she was alerted to photos of him making out with a clothing heiress on a luxury yacht in Turkey, People reports. Melissa Meeks tells the Daily Mail that while she thought her spouse was working overseas, he was actually canoodling with 26-year-old Chloe Green, whose billionaire dad owns a slew of British retailers.

"I told him I didn't think the marriage could be saved," a "humiliated" Melissa Meeks says. "He agreed. The marriage is over." She also calls Green's part in this "unforgivable," noting: "She knew he was married." She adds she's not sure how to break this all to her three children, including a 7-year-old son with Meeks and an 11-year-old and 16-year-old she brought into the marriage. Meeks' latest Instagram post over the weekend, which shows the 33-year-old posing for a fashion shoot, is rife with comments, including one that reads, "How can i support someone with such low moral values," while another adds: "The public made you famous … the public will tear you back down."
