- Tiger King's Joe Exotic and his husband Dillan Passage have decided to go their separate ways
- According to separate statements they issued, the husbands felt like there was too much distance between them
- The reality TV stars seem to have called it quits as Joe is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence
Tiger King’s Joseph Allen Maldonado, aka Joe Exotic, have announced that he and his husband Dillan Passage are set to get a divorce.
The chap, who rose to fame after appearing in a Netflix documentary, stated in an Instagram post that Dillan gets too lonely back at home.
Joe is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence, thus putting a rift between him and his partner.
The former animal park owner explained that his better half constantly had to sleep alone and it became too rough to deal with the loneliness.
The 58-year-old then stated that Dillan made the difficult decision to walk out of the marriage as a result of the frustration.
“Dillon thinks having to sleep alone and not have me out there is so rough and hard to deal with to the point he has to leave me. Now I do not even have a home,” the convict wrote.
Joe was greatly worried that the one person who promised to stick by his side forever had slowly wiped away memories of him.
Dillan also spoke on the same situation and gave a brief history of their relationship. He then noted that he and Joe had excited to go their separate ways.
Hours later, their lawyer announced that the couple’s divorce had been put on hold.
“I am so glad that they are working things through. They need each other and they are much stronger together than apart,” Hernandes, their attorney, said.
In other Tiger King news, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Caroline Baskin took control over Joe's 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.
