Melissa Meeks told the outlet that she found out about the photos on social media.
“Some random person I don’t know sent a direct message with the photograph of my husband kissing that woman,” she said. “I went into shock. I felt nauseated. It was like a bomb had gone off and my whole world had been blown apart.”
“Jeremy was being pitched as the ‘hot felon,’ she told The Daily Mail. “The sexy new star. His image didn’t fit with a man who had a wife and kids.”
Melissa Meeks admitted their marriage had not been perfect and that separation was discussed before, but they decided divorce was best once her husband returned home to Los Angeles.
“He kept saying, ‘I’m sorry, you didn’t deserve this.’ We talked about divorce. I told him I didn’t think the marriage could be saved. He agreed. The marriage is over.”
According to TMZ, however, Jeremy Meeks beat her to the punch and filed for legal separation on Monday. According to the site, the purpose in the filing is to have all assets moving forward will be separate.
The couple has one child together. Melissa Meeks has another son from a previous relationship.
