Jailed Joe Exotic wants to divorce and marry a new partner.

A little over a year ago, “Tiger King” star Joe Exotic (59) and his spouse Dillon Passage separated. However, while behind bars, the imprisoned Exotic has met a new man he wants to marry. In a letter, which is available to the celebrity portal “TMZ”.writes the 59-year-old, his new love is like something out of the fantasy romance “Twilight”.

Joe Exotic and his new partner John have been together since March 2021 and got engaged last August. John is “extremely romantic and caring”. The love that the two share is one that Joe Exotic has never experienced. A few weeks ago it was announced that he would like to get divorced and marry again.

While it became clear in January that the 59-year-old would remain in prison, it appears that his new partner is no longer in prison. Joe Exotic writes to his fiancé every day. He answers in writing twice a week and they are supposed to call each other several times a day.

Joe Exotic wants to get married as soon as possible

As soon as the divorce is over and he is still alive at this point, he wants to marry John, Exotic continues. Joseph Maldonado-Passage, his real name, announced in November 2021 that he was suffering from an aggressive form of prostate cancer. He currently has 16 radiation treatments ahead of him. After completion of the treatments, after a waiting period of around four weeks, it is checked whether the disease is in remission.

The Netflix documentary “Tiger King: Big Cats and Their Predators”, which premiered in March 2020, is about Joe Exotic, who ran a private zoo with big cats in the USA, and his feud with the relentless animal activist Carole Baskin (60). Joe Exotic has been sentenced to 22 years in prison for allegedly hiring two men to kill his nemesis. In January he was again sentenced to more than 20 years in prison on appeal. A second season of “Tiger King” was released in November 2021.
