As if being in prison and losing his beloved zoo wasn’t bad enough for Joe Exotic, the Tiger King now has to contend with the fact that his arch nemesis, Carole Baskin, has gained control of the old GW Zoo, thanks to a court ruling.
If you remember, Joe lost his zoo to former business partner Jeff Lowe, however, according to documents obtained by law enforcement officials, it transpires that the transfer of the land from Joe to his mother and Jeff was fraudulent.
This now means a judge has granted Carole control of the land to help satisfy a $1m settlement from an old trademark lawsuit against Joe.
Somewhere in Fort Worth Federal Medical Center Joe Exotic is uttering the words “That bitch Carole Baskin!” https://t.co/hedyttDXH2— Shannon 🌙🔮🦇 (@NerdyGirlShay) June 2, 2020
The judge has given Lowe 120 days to get himself and all animals off the newly renamed Tiger King Park, which re-opened last month, having been shut down due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking to TMZ about the settlement, Lowe said, “We have long anticipated that the judge would eventually undo the 2016 land transfer. We are thankful that he dragged out his decision this long and allowed us time to complete the new Tiger King Park in Thackerville Oklahoma, behind the World’s largest casino.
What’s that? You were just thinking, “2020 hasn’t been crazy enough.” Well, today Carol Baskin was awarded Joe Exotic’s property in Oklahoma. Jeff Lowe has 120 days to leave. What a time to be alive, man https://t.co/lzzfGByxiT— Aaron Torres (@Aaron_Torres) June 2, 2020
“Considering [Carole] spent approximately 2.5M chasing her 1M judgment, we congratulate her on her new acquisition of 16 acres in rural Oklahoma.
“The possibility of human remains being buried on this land should make her feel right at home.”
Why do we get the impression an equally as bizarre sequel series will be turning up on Netflix about this in a couple years time?
