'Tiger King' Star Joe Exotic Allegedly Has Secret Family!!

Publish date:

The revelations from Netflix's Tiger King continues -- and it's now being claimed that the openly gay, imprisoned big cat owner has a secret wife and son.

"He had children and his son came to work at the zoo the summer that I was there, the very first summer," former employee Rick Kirkham said during a live q&a.

"His son Brandon is in the documentary and I'm surprised that the documentary didn't bring that up. Joe treated his son worse than he treated the other employees. He expected more out of him, he expected him to take more leadership and do harder work. ... He had his son sweeping the park instead of giving him a decent job, feeding the animals or something like that. It was almost as though he regretted having a child, that he regretted having been married." 

On the show, Exotic is seen marrying his two young husbands at the same time. His former wife and son are never mentioned.

Exotic is currently servicing out a 22-year sentence for the plot to kill Carole Baskin as well as several wildlife violations. Last week, President Donald Trump said he would "look into" a presidential pardon.
