‘Tiger King’ Joe Exotic is getting divorced. His husband Dillon Passage announces via Instagram that the couple has decided not to continue together, because it is impossible to maintain the marriage now that Exotic is serving a 22-year prison sentence.
Passage, who married Exotic in 2017, writes on the social medium that he wants to keep his private life to himself as much as possible and not like his husband wants to hang the dirty laundry outside.
“I don’t think that’s a healthy way to deal with private affairs and so I will say no more than the following about this. To answer the big question: Yes, Joe and I are getting divorced,” writes Passage.
“It was not an easy decision to make, but we both understand that this situation is not fair for both of us.” Passage emphasizes that the two are not arguing and expresses the hope that it can stay that way. “Joe will stay in my life and I will do my best to support him in his struggle to improve his situation.”
The two have only spent nine months together as a married couple. After that, Exotic was arrested and convicted. The former zoo owner who gained worldwide fame through the Netflix documentary Tiger King, is serving a sentence for paying someone to have his arch-rival Carole Baskin killed and animal cruelty.
