Here's an update to satisfy your #FelonCrushFriday and #JailBae needs: Jeremy Meeks has spoken out from behind bars and, yes, he does know that he's become a worldwide trending topic.

But sad news for all the lusting ladies out there: He's married.

"I just visited my wife and she said that I blew up all over Facebook," Meeks told CNN affiliate KXTV.

He didn't know why he was so popular, however, and, when the reporter explained he said, "Well I appreciate that but I just want them to know that this is really not me. I’m not some kingpin."

The 30-year-old was rounded up with several other men in Stockton, California, and slapped with felony weapon charges. Meeks, a convicted felon, spent nine years in prison, according to KXTV, and admits that police found a pistol in his trunk. But he insists that he's no longer a gangster.
