Two years ago, criminal Jeremy Meeks was dubbed the “hottest felon” in the world after his police mugshot went viral.
Now the ex-con and Instagram hit has been posting pictures of a luxury lifestyle that prove life after crime does pay.
The 32-year-old poses with a $150,000 Maserati in front of his huge mansion after turning his life around and becoming a full-time model.
The former gang member from California was jailed in 2014 on weapons charges, but his sexy mugshot, posted on the Stockton police Facebook page, had women begging to be “locked up with him” and had modeling agencies lining up at his cell door.
After being released in March last year, the ex-con has been keeping his 612,000 followers up to date on his new career — and it’s clearly going well.
The picture of the huge mansion on his Instagram is captioned, “Good to be home.” Another shot, in which he poses topless in front of the luxury home, reads: “God is good.”
More touching pictures show he has been reunited with his wife, Melissa, and children.
Posing with Melissa, he wrote: “Celebrating our 8 year anniversary today and 50 more to go. Through thick and thin! #blessed #loved #aniversary #marriage.”
Another seasonal snap shows the couple with three children by a Christmas tree.
Fans were happy to see that Meeks’ life of crime was behind him.
On the Maserati picture, one posted: “Moving on up!”
Another added: “Very nice, proud you are doing well. Your Boys and Wife need you.”
One admirer commented: “No matter what you did always remember, ‘every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.’”
