Accompanied by his girlfriend, the heiress to the Topshop empire Chloe Green, Meeks, landed at Ben-Gurion International Airport in the late evening. PPlus reported that he will be collaborating with Refaeli in a campaign for Carolina Lemke sunglasses, and sunny Israel was selected as the ideal place for the shoot, scheduled to take place on Wednesday

Meeks and Green are expected to remain in Israel for the week.
The 33-year-old model is a native of California and was arrested by the Stockton Police Department there in 2014 on gang-related charges. The police posted his mug shot to Facebook, and it swiftly went viral, with Meeks soon becoming known as the "world's hottest felon.". Upon his release from prison in 2016, Meeks capitalized on his fame and began a modelling career.
