The “hot felon” has officially put his troubled past behind him!

Jeremy Meeks, 33, was spotted sitting next to Nicki Minaj, 34, and designer Philipp Plein, 39, at the amfAR gala in Cannes on May 25.

Jeremy — who’s now a household name in the modeling industry — went viral back in 2014 after his seriously sexy mugshot was shared by the Stockton Police Department. At the time, he was arrested for gun possession and had previously served time in 2002 for grand theft.

But Jeremy and Nicki are clearly nothing more than friends, as the former felon is happily married with kids and the “Super Bass” singer recently sparked romance rumors with Drake at the Billboard Music Awards. During the show, the rapper made a point to give her a shout out on stage.

He said, “I want to say, Nicki Minaj — I’m so glad we found our way back because I love you and I could never ever ever see it any other way.”

Sigh, she’s one lucky girl.
