‘Tiger King’ Ruined My Life!!!

Talks from prison about fake ‘conspiracy’

Joe Exotic says the hit Netflix series about his life is the worst thing that’s happened to him because it made the public think he was trying to kill Carol Baskin — and yet he has forgiven everyone, including Carole, when he faces the possibility of dying in prison.

We spoke with Joe on Friday, he called in from the federal prison in Fort Worth, TX … and said what “Tiger King” became is what ruined his life. He says all the content he filmed was for a separate project – years before ‘TK’ – and after that the producers used his interview and added everyone else in the series to create a fake “conspiracy to kill Carole.”

He says it was all done to get TV ratings and he maintains he is the innocent victim of that production plot.

As we reported, Joe is currently fighting cancer believed to have spread from his prostate to his bladder … and as he faces his own mortality — he recently signed a do-not-resuscitate order — he says he’s found a way to forgive Carole and even Jeff Lowe.

When it comes to Carole, Joe chalks up their rivalry to good business moves – he says it’s common in the animal rescue industry – and admits that both he and CB benefited from going after each other.

Joe gave us an insight into his day-to-day behind bars – and said depression is another battle for him. He also says he’s gotten some interesting characters over the years…including cartel leaders and Ted KaczynskiAKA Unabomber.

As for what’s next, he says he still hopes to be released from prison and wants to bond with his fiancée Seth Posey. He also talked about the fact that he’s officially running for president in 2024 as a Libertarian, and told us why he’s the man for the job … even if he’s behind bars.
