Joe Exotic’s ex-husband claimed this week that his marriage the Tiger King was all fake -- and was just for the cameras.
John Finlay talked to UK outlet, The Sun, where he alleged that he was“young and dumb and didn’t know a nail from a hole in the wall” at 19. He said he was “impressionable” and willing to “try anything once.”
Tiger King viewers were shocked to see Joe Exotic tie the knot to two young men at the same time, Finlay and Travis Maldonado, who later shot himself.
“The fake one was basically a publicity stunt so Joe could get his own reality TV series,” said Finlay.
He later tied the knot to a woman named Stormey.
“I’ve never felt this way about anyone before. I had no idea what it is like to marry your rock, your soulmate, the person you spend every minute of the day with,” he said.
“Stormey completes me and we are deeply in love,” he said, revealing he wore “a button-up black Western shirt, jeans and my rattlesnake boots” for his special day.
