It’s been an eventful few days for Jeremy Meeks, the dreamboat of a felon whose mugshot has controversially captivated the (sexual) imaginations of ladies everywhere. Yesterday we learned that his wife is certainly not happy about his newfound internet heartthrob status.

Maybe he’s just blinded by the baby blue hotness radiating from Meeks’ eyes, but he’s got a theory. Hear him out.
