‘America’s hottest convict’ Jeremy Meeks starts ‘blue voyage’ from Turkish resort Bodrum
ISTANBULJeremy Meeks, who went viral after a leak of his police mugshot led him to be labelled on social media as “America’s hottest convict,” started a “blue voyage” from the Aegean province of Muğla’s resort town Bodrum on June 28.
Meeks, 33, flew to Istanbul on June 26 and announced his arrival via his Instagram account with a photo showing him standing in front of the entrance of the Atatürk International Airport.
“A great start to an amazing week!!! Here I come #bodrum #turkey,” he wrote to accompany his post.
A woman and his promoter are reportedly accompanying him during the voyage in a 50-meter-long yacht named the “Caspian Star.”
Meeks has posted a number of photos of the trip on Instagram, showing him sunbathing and diving overboard into the sea.
Some candid moments showing the woman and Meeks, who is married with three children, also raised eyebrows.
Meeks’ mugshot went viral online in 2015 and he started a modeling career after his release from jail in the U.S. in 2016.
He had been sentenced to 27 months in jail in charges of “unlawful possession of a firearm.”
