The 33-year-old criminal, who shot to notoriety as the world’s hottest felon in 2014 when his mugshot went viral, filed paperwork asking to end his marriage to 38-year-old Melissa Meeks, in California, on Tuesday.
His bold application comes days after she revealed plans to divorce him over photographs of him cavorting with Topshop heiress Chloe Green.

A legal separation is different from a divorce in a number of ways: The former couple can still claim some tax benefits and share healthcare. The former couple will still have to separate their assets.
In documents filed on Tuesday, Meeks said that he has not yet ‘determined the full nature and extent of his separate property assets and/or liabilities’.
He added, however, that earnings and acquisitions made after the separation began would be considered separate property.
Meeks had told his wife he was going to promote a night club when pictures of him passionately kissing 26-year-old Green on board a $145,000-a-week yacht in Bodrum, Turkey, emerged in the first week of July.
