‘Hot Model’ Jeremy Meeks is facing a new lawsuit after reportedly wrecking two high-end rental cars in just one week.

TMZ reports that WeHo Auto Rental Inc.  is suing Meeks, 35, and Terry Joe Bailey Jr., the man he was arrested with in 2014 that lead to Meeks being dubbed ‘Hot Felon.’

The West Hollywood car rental shop claimed that Meeks rented a 2016 Porsche Cayenne and a 2019 Mercedes-Benz in September, which were both involved in car accidents less than a week apart.

WeHo Auto Rental claims the first accident, in the Mercedes-Benz, took place on September 5, and the second in the Cayenne took place on September 10.

Bailey is listed as a co-defendant in the lawsuit, though it isn’t clear whether Meeks or Bailey was driving for either or both accidents.

Meeks has not yet responded to the lawsuit publicly yet, but the fact that Bailey is involved as well is certainly interesting.

Back in 2014, Meeks was arrested on felony weapons charges in Stockton, California, and Bailey was arrested on the same charges.

Meeks’ mugshot went viral, and while he was serving his 27-month prison sentence, he was discovered by Jim Jordan and signed a modeling contract with White Cross Management.

After his release from prison in March 2016, he started his modeling career, making his runway debut at New York Fashion Week in 2017.

Meeks has also made headlines for his love life as well, having left his wife of 10 years, Melissa Meeks, for Topshop heiress Chloe Green in 2017, shortly after getting out of prison and starting his modeling career.

Meeks and Green welcomed their first child, Jayden Meeks-Green, in May 2018, with the child’s hyphenated name leading many to wonder if they were considering marriage.

While it was believed that Meeks broke it off with Green after she was spotted kissing Monte Carlo polo captain Rommy Gianni, Meeks is insisting they’re still together.

The pair were engaged, though Green has not been seen with her ring on several occasions.

‘We are definitely together. Right now we’re in between Monaco and LA. I have to travel a lot in order to see Chloe and my son (Jayden, one). (We don’t know) where we’re going to forever settle,’ Meeks said in an interview with The Times.

On Thursday, Meeks was spotted shopping for jewelry with a mystery friend at XIV Karats Ltd. in Beverly Hills.
