'Hot Felon' Jeremy Meeks has agreed to pay child support to his estranged wife, Melissa. Jeremy struck a deal in his divorce case and agreed to pay $1,000 a month. The deal has been retroactive since November 1, 2017, Jeremy has been entitled to pay the entire four months worth of support. But he has been spared from spousal support.
Melissa had initially asked for child support and spousal support. She did not specify what she wanted but claimed her ex made $1 million monthly in modeling contracts. Jeremy wasn't forced to pay spousal support.
TMZ reports, Jeremy and Melissa also agreed on a joint legal custody of their 9-year-old Jeremy Jr., who will spend 30 percent of his time with his father.
Melissa's attorney, Lisa Bloom, states "We are pleased that we were able to get Melissa child support in an amount 25 percent above legal guidelines. And the parties have worked together to come up with a reasonable child custody and visitation schedule, as parents should."
However, the deal is yet to be sealed as a judge needs to formally sign off on the deal. Since splitting with Melissa, Jeremy has dated Topshop heiress Chloe Green. Jeremy and Chloe were spotted kissing in Turkey while he and Melissa were still together.
Melissa spoke to Britain's "This Morning," last year and said the divorce was "heartbreaking."
"I had no indication he was looking for another relationship," she said. "People who are married, you go through your ups and downs, I thought it was a new chapter in our lives, we'd have to get over the hump and it would be fine."
While Jeremy was locked up, Melissa said, "We were leading day to day lives without him. We would go to visit him a lot. It was good for the kids that they weren't completely pulled apart from him. It was the plan - to be a family together. But then his mugshot went viral. All the exposure that he got, this new career path he was on, he started doing a lot of traveling. I wasn't able to go with him, that probably put some distance between us."
