- A judge has granted Carole Baskin control of Joe Exotic's former Oklahoma zoo
- Carole had won a $1 million judgement against Joe and his mom many years ago, but she never received the money
- Now the judge has granted Joe's nemesis control of the land to help satisfy that $1 million judgement from the old lawsuit
A judge has granted Carole Baskin control of Joe Exotic's former Oklahoma zoo.
Carole won a $1 million judgement against Joe and his mom many years ago but she was never paid.
The judge said Joe's transfer of the zoo land to his mother and Jeff Lowe was fraudulent, according to the docs obtained by TMZ.
Now the judge has granted Joe's nemesis control of the land to help satisfy that $1 million judgement from the old trademark lawsuit, TMZ reports.
The ruling by the federal judge states that Jeff has 120 days to move himself and all the animals off the property. Jeff had just re-opened last month and renamed the zoo Tiger King Park.
Jeff and his wife, Lauren, told the publication that they had 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."
Jeff was already planning to ditch Joe's old Tiger King Park property in Wynnewood.
Jeff and Lauren continued:
"Considering (Carole) spent approximately $2.5 million chasing her $1 million judgement, we congratulate her on her new acquisition of 16 acres in rural Oklahoma."
The publication reports that the couple took one parting shot, saying:
"The possibility of human remains being buried on this land should make her feel right at home."
Briefly.co.za reported that Mzansi YouTuber Josh Pieters and his co-star Archie Manners managed to prank Carole from Netflix's docuseries Tiger King.
The duo tricked Carole into believing that she was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Josh explained that they promised Carole that the interview would only focus on "cats" and wouldn't be about the docuseries.
