Jeremy Meeks

The convicted felon whose prison mugshot launched a thousand memes is now a successful high fashion model. Jeremy Meeks became an overnight sensation when his prison mugshot went viral on Facebook in 2014. His piercing blue eyes and chiseled manly features made women swoon and forget their marriage vows.

Before he was released from prison in 2016, Meeks signed a modeling contract with white Cross Management. He made his NY Fashion Week debut walking for Philipp Plein International on Tuesday.

Meeks put his criminal lifestyle behind him following his prison stint. He used his modeling earnings to purchase a mini mansion for his family and he drives a brand new Maserati sports car.

Meeks is a big hit with fans on the streets of New York.

Well since everyone tagged me in all the articles about how he slayed his debut in fashion week, I just wanted to let you all know that Jeremy Meeks is not just a gorgeous face and body with sexy tattoos. When I stopped him on the street and asked for a picture, he was also incredibly kind, humble and gracious. This is a man that knows he's been blessed with a second chance and is not wasting it. Even his manager was a really nice guy and joked about how the wind was blowing during the picture and that I looked like a model also. (And who am I? Just a fan on the street…) Every successful person needed a little luck and it's inspiring to see a person getting a second chance in something he will excel in and I wish Jeremy all the best! #jeremymeeks #prisonbae #hotfelon #secondchances #iwinvalentinesday

    This nig has already been spending his modeling money like it’s water.
    Expect him to be broke soon and back to his old tricks then shortly thereafter Big Bubba’s cellmate again.

  • Buttercup

    I’m happy he’s gotten a second chance. Hopefully, he’ll stay on the straight and narrow.

  • hotntot95

  • Cheese eggs

    Martha Stewart…..

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    Since #BlackLivesMatter, and other social activist groups with Afro-American civil rights in mind, won’t address Chicago and urban violence, maybe Trump should send in the Feds.

    Because obviously we’re not concerned with fixing the problem ourselves.

  • Sucker Free

    Its not even working for LeBron tho ?

  • Emily post

    LOL Good luck trying to get people to really even acknowledge their is a problem…… The issue with violence and the violent individuals stems from a lot of unchecked dysfunction and that dysfunction runs deep.

    Proof that wherever you’re supposed to be in this life, God will make sure you get there. Be it, via a mugshot….

    Imma pray for you….. ? ?

  • jussaying

    male models do not make long money. even the highest paid one (sean o’pry) is either at 500K (tho one year he made 1mili) and he has a plethora of campaigns. they make wayyyyyy less than their female counterparts which sucks. runway work doesn’t pay as much as commercial modeling.

  • Taylordanes

    well shall I say “attention”

  • Taylordanes

    lets hope he doesnt venture there with his sprite woman….

  • jussaying

    runs deeeeeeepppppp

  • stanley

    lies lol…. Male Models don’t make enough money to buy mansions. It’s just a PR stunt similar to what rappers do in music videos renting cars but pretending they own it lol. We haven’t seen him in any magazines, commercials. He doesn’t work alot in modeling, and its a shame he resorted to lying to fans.

  • Bella Boss

    FACT

  • the guest

    Ted Williams. His story is different. He was a chronically homeless severe life long drug addict. He spoke about relapsing after fame.

    As far Prison Bae, with his fame, making a good living, and his family solid, it’s safe to say Mr. Meeks is done with selling guns and the street. He’s really striking. I hope is grounded enough to resist the temptations of Hollywood. Because he WILL be making movies.

  • RicanLBC

    Some people have all the phuckin luck! One good thing I can say… he stays loyal to his white wife and kids Lmao

  • RicanLBC

    Jesus

  • 19awesomegrl97

    ok!

  • KIm

    We reward a lot of BS in this country. I guess all the struggling models out there should become a criminal, take a hot mugshot and maybe they will get noticed too..?

  • 19awesomegrl97

    is he going bald?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Since when shyt must have changed because runway in NY and Miami be popping… I use to model years ago… So it could have changed … But runway made more than print… All day shyt must have changed

  • Meme

    not too sure how to do that will try??

  • 2brefrank

    Looks like the mug shot with a nice outfit on….

    It’s great he can find a job coming right out of prison but his so called good looks does nothing for me

  • IamAllnatural

    He’s not ugly, but he looks like he should be in a scary movie. He kind of gives me the creeps ?

  • Tynamight

    U wrong!
    Ahnnnnd, you will, if he was single & ready to mingle. Stop lying! This man is on his way up.

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    PrisonBae??
    Isn’t he married with a child??

    These women will let him break her vajayjay for one night, cheating on their husband but then the same women would scream “don’t grab my puss..” to a Donald Trump protest. And the same not long ago 50 Shades came out…..smdh

    This is how THEY control people: by showing how hypocrit certain people .

    Stay awoke

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

  • jussaying

    runway modeling has always paid less. it is used more for exposure to warrant high fashion campaigns whivh pay more and/or get you more jobs. in campaigns your pictures go up on billboards, are recycled in multiple magazines etc.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    True and dude has to probably pay NYC income taxes as well as NY state income taxes and if he doesn’t live in NY state he has to pay income taxes in his home state.
    Then he has to pay his agent 10-15% off the top……
    Maybe he’s a personal trainer in his spare time.
