The jailbird who shot to worldwide fame after his chiseled, blue-eyed mug shot went viral has reportedly signed a £20,000 modelling contract – from behind bars.
Jeremy Meeks, who is facing 11 criminal charges including illegal gun possession and gun crime, was offered the contract by Blaze Modelz in Los Angeles.
The agency, based in Santa Monica, claims it can book him for high-end fashion houses – such as Prada and Gucci – which could see him earn thousands of pounds a month.
The 30-year-old is reportedly being represented by Hollywood talent agent, Gina Rodriguez, a former porn star.
Rodriguez, who was allegedly sent a number of raunchy emails by Kelly Brook’s fiancé David McIntosh in April, has previously acted for the likes of ‘Octomum’ Nadya Suleman and Lindsay Lohan’s father Michael.
However despite agreeing to the contract it may be some time before Meeks can cash in on his new found fame as he is is currently being held on $1million (£580,000) bail while facing a potentially lengthy prison sentence if convicted.
Since his picture emerged has been nicknamed “Dreamy McMug” with countless woman asking to marry him after seeing his mug shot.
Meeks, from Stockton, California, previously served time for grand theft and has had numerous other brushes with the law.
According to reports in the US he is a former member of the feared Northside Gangster Crips however his family now insist he has moved away from any affiliation.
