The Beloved Criminal Jeremy Meeks Signs $30,000 Modelling Contract!

Jeremy Meeks, the man pictured in the hot mugshot that went viral in June,  has reportedly locked in a modelling contract.

TMZ  is reporting Meeks has signed a $US30,000 deal with LA-based Blaze Modelz.

He has also signed with talent agent Gina Rodriguez, who represents Nadya Suleman, also known as octo-mum, after she gave birth to eight children in January 2009.

1404263305587.jpg-300x0Ms Rodriguez has told American news sites she’s looking at reality TV show options for when Meeks is released for jail.

Meeks’ appearance may also become a key factor in his trial. American celebrity gossip site Perez Hilton  has reported Meeks’s lawyer, Tai Bogan, asked that he be allowed to wear civilian clothes in court rather than a prison jumpsuit.

“We are talking to designers to provide clothing for him during this case. We want him to look as good as possible in the court. We are worried that current pictures of him in prison garb will mean he will not get a fair trial,” Mr Bogan said, adding he wants to take Meeks’ measurements so he can be sure clothes fit his physique.

The modelling contract may come as a welcome relief to his wife and young son. Meeks’ mother, Katherine Angiers, has been trying to raise money to help meet the bail costs.

“Please help. My son was taken into custody on his way to work,” she wrote. “He is a working man with a son. He is being stereotyped due to old tattoos … please help him to get a fair trial or else he’ll be railroaded.”

She has raised just over $US5000 of her $US25,000 target.

But Meeks will need another $US870,000 if he wants to get out and start posing for photos, as his bail is set at $900,000.

Meeks is awaiting trial on weapons charges. He has previously been convicted for grand theft and spent two years in prison.

Neymar fires Brazil to comeback victory!

Star: Neymar shined for Brazil as they beat Croatia in their opening World Cup game

Neymar was the star of the show as Brazil came from behind to secure a hard-fought 3-1 victory over Croatia in the opening match of the FIFA World Cup™. The hosts’ star No10 equalised after Marcelo’s own-goal, and converted a second-half penalty after Fred had been fouled by Dejan Lovren.

Croatia had the ball in the net before the end of the game, but Ivica Olic was adjudged to have fouled Julio Cesar in the build-up, and Oscar made sure of the victory late on.

Neymar fires Brazil to comeback victoryThe opening goal of the 2014 World Cup was remarkable in itself, the first own-goal scored by a Brazilian in the history of the tournament. Ivica Olic received the ball on the Croatia left and ran unopposed into the Brazilian half. His low cross fizzed across goal and was turned in by Marcelo, who failed to readjust his feet in time. Ivan Perisic was ready to pounce if the Real Madrid man had not made the final touch.

The crowd were stunned, but they rallied behind their side, who were level before the half-hour mark. Oscar worked hard to regain possession for Brazil in the middle of the park, before passing the ball to Neymar. The Barça man skipped free of a Perisic challenge, steadied himself, and fired hard and low with his left foot across Pletikosa. The ball rebounded off the post, nestled into the back of the Croatia net and the Arena de Sao Paulo erupted.

The remainder of the first half saw Brazil dominate possession, with Croatia looking dangerous on the counter-attack.

After more Seleção pressure in the second-half, the hosts went ahead. The ball was played into the box towards Fred, who tried to swivel to hit it towards goal. He was impeded by Lovren and the referee pointed to the spot. Neymar stepped up, delayed his run-up, and hit hard to Pletikosa’s right-hand side. Croatia’s No1 got a hand to it, but could not stop it putting Brazil ahead.

Brazil: Beat two men before providing the ball from which Neymar scored, and showed ambition.

Despite a valiant effort by Croatia, including their disallowed goal, Brazil wrapped up the three points when Oscar fired home from the edge of the box.

Man of the match: Neymar was outstanding for Brazil in their 3-1 win

Chris Brown Back In Jail For Violating Probation

Chris Brown was arrested on Friday (March 14) for violating his probation.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told the Associated Press that the R&B singer was taken into custody at 2 p.m. on a warrant issued by probation officials. He is reportedly being held without bail.

TMZ reported that the reason behind the 25-year-old singer’s arrest was that he was kicked out of the Malibu rehab center he was staying at for violating “internal rules.”

Brown was ordered to 90 days in in a treatment facility in November to treat anger-management issues after he threw a rock through his mother’s car window before being discharged from a rehab facility. (Brown had spent two weeks in a rehab facility in early October after he was arrested in Washington, D.C., for allegedly assaulting a 20-year-old man.)

Late last month, the Malibu rehab facility revealed in court documents that the singer suffered from PTSD and bi-polar disorder.
