Chloe Green is no stranger to an odd pairing, counting Jennifer Lopez’s ex-hubby Marc Anthony and Made in Chelsea’s Ollie Locke among her exes, but her latest match is raising more than a few eyebrows.
The daughter of billionaire Topshop founder Sir Philip Green was spotted canoodling with ‘hot felon’ and model Jeremy Meeks recently, as they were papped getting hot and heavy on a yacht after meeting at Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.
Since news of the relationship emerged, the new couple has received a fair amount of flak from sceptics.
After all, Jeremy Meeks doesn’t just have a criminal past, he also has a wife and three children back in the US.
None of this is giving Chloe pause for thought, it seems, as she hits back at the haters with a defiant Instagram post of the pair.
The pic shows a smiling Chloe and Jeremy with photographer pal Jim Jordan, who is also Meeks’ manager, complete with the caption: “Just the Beginning… We appreciate all the love and the hate.”
Talking to The Sun, a source said: “Chloe seems quite taken with Jeremy, and who can blame her? He’s seen as one of the sexiest guys on the celebrity social circuit and has a story or two to tell about his colourful past.
“Quite what Chloe’s dad and Jeremy’s wife will make of their fling is another matter.
Chloe disabled comments on the Instagram post, presumably aware of the kind of backlash she was in for.
However, this didn’t stop those with objections to her new relationship from gravitating to a different picture to voice their opinions, branding the socialite a ‘home-wrecker’ in the comments of a sexy snap posted a few days before.
Jeremy hit the headlines in 2014 when he became a viral sensation, thanks to a mugshot displaying his chiseled good looks. The ‘hot felon’ was promptly snapped up by modelling agencies and walked in New York Fashion Week earlier this year.
Meanwhile Chloe split from Marc Anthony, who was 22 years her senior, in 2014, citing ‘busy schedules’.
