The wife of Jeremy Meeks, the handsome convict blowing up the internet, is not a happy woman — mainly because the “Handsome Convict” is also blowing up the hearts of women across the nation.
Meeks, 30, was arraigned on Friday on eleven felony counts and his bail was set at $900,000. This large sum — as well as the fact that he’s also a convict and “bad guy” — did not serve as a deterrent to Meeks’s hundreds of internet fans, who’ve gone as far as setting up a crowdfunding page to pay his bail. What also did not serve as a deterrent: the fact that he’s married and is a father of two,
“I wouldn’t be surprised if you don’t see [his wife[ at all in the cameras, because she’s upset,” friend Simone Johnson told CBS13 at his arraignment. “She’s furious. Her man is in there and people are taking it as a joke, thinking it’s funny talking about his looks, saying all kinds of crazy things.”
While Meeks’s public defender thinks that the attention his hot client is getting might be a good thing (“It’s better than the attention my clients usually get”), the judge was not amused: his bail is now set at $1 million.
