Chloe Green’s parents are estimated to be worth nearly $5 billion, so it’s perhaps no surprise that her life happenings make headlines too. And when Green started dating Jeremy Meeks, the unusual couple may have raised some eyebrows – not least because Meeks is a convicted felon. The pair’s relationship has continued regardless of any media scrutiny, however, and it’s led to them making a huge announcement.
Green’s father is Sir Philip Green, who is the chairman of Arcadia Group – a retail firm that owns Topshop. He and his wife, Tina, have a combined net worth of around $4.9 billion. And that nearly unimaginable fortune has allowed the couple to buy all of life’s finest things – a trio of yachts and a private jet included.
Furthermore, when Green was just six years old, she and her parents left their home in London and put down roots in Monaco. The family has subsequently received some backlash for that move, since the location of their new residence meant that they could avoid paying taxes on their business profits.
But the Greens, including Chloe, are used to their lives unfolding in the spotlight. And it seems as though Green will follow in her parents’ footsteps by attempting to forge a career in fashion. Indeed, not only has she loved clothes since she was young, but she has also tried her hand at designing a shoe line, CJG by Chloe Green.
Outside of work, however, Green has also built a close circle of famous friends. She’s known to have hung out with the Kardashians, Rita Ora and socialites Paris Hilton and Sofia Richie, for example. And it appears that this combination of fashion and celebrity helped Green meet her future love.
Meeks became famous in a very different way to his future girlfriend, however. In 2014 he was apprehended by police and subsequently convicted on a firearms charge, for which he served more than two years in prison. It wasn’t Meeks’ offence that got the public’s attention, though, but his mugshot. The snap of Meeks took the internet by storm in 2014; his brooding gaze in the shot even had people referring to the mysterious criminal as the “Hot Felon.”
Then, after serving his sentence, Meeks left jail – and got to work on his modeling career. And his new job had him flying across the world to Europe, where he is believed to have wooed Green. The couple were first snapped kissing on a yacht in May 2017.
There was only one problem with the coupling; at the time of his and Green’s public smooch, Meeks was still married. And after seeing the evidence of her spouse’s infidelity, Melissa Meeks told the Daily Mail in 2017, “To me, that’s unforgivable. My whole world has been torn apart by this.”
Unsurprisingly, both Melissa and her soon-to-be-ex-husband agreed that their union was irreparably shattered. So, in July 2017 Meeks filed for legal separation, allowing the blossoming liaison between him and Green to flourish into something even more.
Then, just weeks after their relationship became official, Green had some life-changing news to share with her new beau: she was pregnant. And the couple kept their baby-to-be a secret from the press as best they could; the paparazzi did capture images of Green’s growing baby bump in May 2018, however.
What’s more, it wouldn’t be long after those snaps were published that Meeks and Green would have a picture of their own to share. On June 7, 2018, they both posted the same photo on their respective Instagram accounts, accompanied by a special announcement.
Specifically, the photo’s caption read, “We are pleased to announce the birth of our beautiful baby boy Jayden Meeks-Green. Born May 29th 2018. Mommy and Baby both doing well. We kindly ask to respect our privacy please. Much love Jeremy & Chloe.”
And to ensure that their privacy was indeed respected, the pair came up with their own way to keep their newborn away from prying eyes: by living on the Green family yacht. “They want to spend at least six months on board,” a source told The Sun in June 2018.
Of course, the son of an heiress and a famous model wouldn’t want for anything on the luxurious vessel. “[Green’s] been buying all kinds of baby gear in all different sizes. The baby will have the best of everything,” the insider continued.
“Jeremy is going along with it all. He just wants Chloe to be happy,” the source concluded. However, further rumors surrounding the couple make it seem as though Meeks has yet another plan up his sleeve to make that happen.
You see, pictures taken of Meeks in Beverly Hills showed him perusing a selection of rings, leading many to believe that an engagement could be on the horizon for him and Green. And a May 2018 report by the Daily Mail suggests that the couple may wed in Monaco; it would certainly make sense from Green’s point of view.
Why? Well, Monaco has tough laws when it comes to marriage and divorce. As a result, if Green did ever split from Meeks, the model would only have a claim to assets the pair obtained during their marriage – and this would potentially leave a great chunk of the heiress’ fortune intact.
The newspaper also claimed that Green and Meeks could be walking down the aisle as early as July – just over a month after they welcomed baby Jayden. And while outsiders have had a lot to say about the couple’s relationship, the Topshop owners reportedly love their daughter’s beau.
Indeed, a source who spoke to the Daily Mail said, “Phil and Tina think [that Meeks is] a great influence on Chloe. He is very polite, quiet, almost shy and seems to really love her. They think he is a nice boy. Everyone gets along with him.”
And just a month before welcoming his and Green’s bundle of joy, Meeks, too, has said that he is ecstatic with the way his life has turned out. According to the Daily Mirror, he revealed, “I’ve never been in this place mentally, emotionally, physically, that I’m in right now. I’ve never been in such an amazing place.”
