Yesterday, Jeremy Meeks made headlines everywhere when his mugshot, that won women’s hearts nearly everywhere, was released to the public.
Despite being arrested and booked on weapon and gang charges, Meeks was praised all over social media for his model-like good looks, and has now become an internet sensation while behind bars.
He has finally gotten word of his fame on the web, and responded to all of the hype during an interview with News10 yesterday where he told them:
‘I appreciate [the attention] but I just want them to know that this is really not me,’ he told News 10 from behind glass. ‘I’m not some kingpin.’
He also told the outlet that he found out the news from his wife of four years, whom he shares a 3-year-old son with.
When asked about his teardrop tattoo, that is typically connected to gang affiliation, he responded that he has done some things in his past that he isn’t proud of.
Even though his handsome mugshot has gone viral, his previous mugshots from years back were also released today, showing the progress in his looks over the years.
When Meeks was arrested back in 2002, he sported an afro along with his same teardrop tattoo, and then again more recently in 2009, when he had a mustache and dark caesar haircut.
