Joe Exotic Sets Up GoFundMe To Cover Legal Fees

Tiger King Joe Exotic has launched a GoFundMe account to pay for his legal fees to be freed from prison.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ, a judge has ordered the Netflix star to pay Carole Baskin nearly $10,000 associated with her trademark infringement lawsuit. He is also trying to raise $500,000 to clear the rest of the debt he owes her.

“Since going to prison, my parents have died, my friends have died, and my marriage has failed. My partner even sold my clothes to random people,” he writes, adding that he intends to “walk out of prison with my clothes on my back, a $1 million judgment and no home or clothes.”

“The fundraiser is set up to pay off Carole Baskin/Big Cat Resue’s judgement against me to give me a fresh start. Once I pay that off, then I will use any additional funds raised to 1) restore my possessions and 2) give to a charity like Operation Smile or some true tiger conservation efforts,” he adds.
