“Hot Convict” Jeremy Meeks hasn’t been shy about showing off his new romance — and his ex-wife hasn’t been shy about calling him out on it.
Melissa Meeks was married to Jeremy for eight years before he reportedly filed for legal separation last week, just days after he was photographed smooching Topshop heiress Chloe Green aboard a yacht in Turkey.
The model, 33, wasted no time in jumping in to his new relationship with the 26-year-old Brit, and on Friday the pair was spotted enjoying a date night out in Los Angeles. The next day, they packed on the PDA while shopping in Beverly Hills.
But Melissa seems to be embracing her newfound freedom — and enjoying the opportunity to serve up some subtle digs toward her cheating ex.

“Better to be slapped with the truth than kissed with a lie,” she posted Friday on Instagram.
The mom-of-three also shared several photos of her with her mother and sister celebrating her birthday on Saturday.
Despite the smiles, Melissa told the Daily Mail that she was left “angry” and “humiliated” after the photos of her husband kissing another woman first surfaced. She told the British tabloid that Meeks had told her he was going on a business trip.
“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.”

Meeks and Melissa share one son, 7-year-old Jeremy Jr. She has two children from previous relationships.
Though Meeks has made it no secret that he’s currently enjoying spending time with Green — the daughter of British billionaire Sir Philip Green — sources tell E! News that he only embraced the relationship after his marriage had already bit the bullet.
“[His] perception on life changed a lot when he started to be out in the spotlight,” sources said. “His marriage was slowly falling apart and he decided to look other directions in romance. He likes Chloe and wants to see where it goes.”
Meeks shot into the spotlight in 2014 after his handsome mug shot for felony gun charges went viral and he was dubbed the “Hot Convict.” Since his release from prison in 2016, he’s embraced a modeling career, and even walked during New York Fashion Week.
