The “sexy mugshot guy” who had women across the country shamelessly throwing their panny-drawers at their screens last week is looking to make it in Hollywood.
Thirst magnet felon Jeremy Meeks has linked up with agent Gina Rodriguez for gigs and shit. The pornstar-turned-agent already boasts a client list filled with D-listers like Teen Mom star-turned-pornstar Farrah Abraham, reality star-turned-pornstar Nadya “Octomom” Suleman and V.Stiviano. Now she’s hoping to get Jeremy’s story heard.
“Everybody has a story, and I, of all people, know that,” Rodriguez told FOX411 exclusively. “The types of personalities that I work with are usually the people who are under fire by the media. If this was a different situation, like if someone was actually hurt or there was violence involved, I definitely would not be taking him on. But we don’t know Jeremy’s full story yet, and I don’t feel like he got a fair break. I really don’t. If we can help him in any way with his future and help him turn his life around, that’s what I’m about. That’s what I want to do for him.”
Meanwhile, his manager is already being hit with death threats because haters gon hate. According to reports, Meeks’ manager has received nearly 30 harassing phone calls from folks threatening to do her harm, including blowing her effing head off. She fears the calls are from Meeks’ old Northside Crips gang that he claims he doesn’t deal with anymore.
Meeks remains locked up on 11 felony counts related to firearm possession, street gang membership and parole violation. Though Meeks supporters have raised over $5,000 to get their prison bae out, it’s still not a drop in the $1.1 million bail bucket.
All the new-found fame has also allegedly gone to his head. TMZ says Meeks is requesting fitted designer duds for his court appearances.
In new docs, filed by attorney Tai Bogan, Meeks requests, “that measures be taken so he may wear civilian clothing that is fitting for his body structure.”
Apparently, dude thinks he’s built like Tyson Beckford.
Clearly, Meeks thinks powerful fashion people may be watching … and god forbid he looks like a schlub.
He also wants the judge to let him take off the shackles in court — “shackles can interfere with Mr. Meeks’ ability to communicate with his lawyer.”
