Tiger King star Joe Exotic wants out of prison fast. According to a letter to fans and supporters, obtained by TMZ, he makes a bleak prediction that “I’ll be dead in 2-3 months.”
Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, says that his health problems are mounting and compares his 20 year sentence to death row. He also asks fans to make a plea to the President, Kim Kardashian, and Cardi B to take up his cause. “ Please ladies I’ve done nothing wrong.” Exotic was sentenced to 20 year in prison for plotting and paying someone to kill Carole Baskin, a plot that never went through.
Exotic also complains about his husband in the letter, Dillon Passage. He says he never writes him saying, “I don’t even know if I’m married anymore.”
In an interview with People last week, passage provided his take. “ The only thing that’s keeping us going is really just hoping for the best and these lawyers seem like they have a really good plan to kind of get things executed.” He also says the Exotic doesn’t have phone privileges and that “he’s holding up.”
