They say that money can’t buy happiness — but does anyone really believe that? In the case of Chloe Green, Jewish heiress to the Topshop fortune, money purchased the yacht upon which she got to know, Biblically, Jeremy Meeks, the hottest convicted felon to ever set foot upon Turkish waters.
Pictures of the unlikely couple surfaced last week and alas, because Cupid is a knavish lad, Meeks is now paying a very public price for his weekend of fun. His wife of nearly 10 years, Melissa Meeks, has filed for divorce in the wake of the scandal and she hasn’t been shy about speaking her mind in the media.
In an interview with the Daily Mail (why, Melissa, why???), Meeks said of the photographs, “I went into shock. I felt nauseated. It was like a bomb had gone off and my whole world had been blown apart.”
“I told him I didn’t think the marriage could be saved,” she continued. “He agreed. The marriage is over.”
A tragic ending, to be sure, but is it also a beautiful new beginning? Could Chloe Green and Hot Felon be the couple we’ve been waiting for since Pam and Jim got married underneath a waterfall? Chloe Green certainly seems to think so. She posted a picture of herself with Jeremy Meeks and his manager beside the caption “Just the beginning … we appreciate all the love and the hate.”
One thing is for sure — this particular love is probably not blind. At least not for Chloe Green.
