Jeremy Meeks, the very attractive, wolf-eyed felon who was picked up by Stockton police on weapons charges this week and whose mugshot subsequently got shared by every straight woman and gay man you know, turns out to be taken. And he's a father. So everybody needs to CALM DOWN.
This news is spreading today, partly via an acquaintance of Meeks' who posted the picture below and says, "He's married ladies. He has got kids with a friend of mine." That's apparently the wife in the photo.
Also, an ABC affiliate in Sacramento ran to the Stockton jail where he's being held and got an exclusive interview with Meeks, who wants everyone to know that while he appreciates the attention, "I just want [everyone] to know that this is really not me, I'm not some kingpin." He's being held on $900,000 bail, and his mom has started a GoFundMe campaign to fund his defense. She's only raised $1,000 of her $25,000 goal so far.
Maybe not yet! But good looks and this kind of viral fame can only lead to one thing: a brief modeling career followed by a reality-television career.
