Joe Exotic, star of the Netflix documentary Tiger King, has announced that he is splitting up with his husband, Dillon Passage.

"To answer the main question the public wants to know, yes, Joe and I are seeking a divorce," Dillion wrote on Instagram. "This wasn't an easy decision to make but Joe and I both understand that this situation isn't fair to either of us … We are on good terms still and I hope it can stay that way. I will continue to have Joe in my life and do my best to support him while he undergoes further legal battles to better his situation."

Exotic's attorney Francisco Hernandez told TMZ Joe is distraught after getting a phone call in prison from Dillon saying he's planning to leave him. He also told the outlet that Joe may file for divorce first to beat Dillon to the punch.

"I don't feel obligated to explain to the world what occurs in my personal life and, despite Joe taking to social media to air every grievance, I don't feel it's the healthiest way to handle private matters between two people. I therefore don't intend to post any more on this subject," Dillon added in his post.
