If you haven’t watched the doco series, Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness, do it.
If you have, read on good people.
Joe’s “husband” the loveable John Finlay went on David Spade’s Lights Out and confirmed this story.
You may not recognise John because he has all his little teeth now and is actually happy and healthy!
Apparently, Finlay said on the show, he and Joe Exotic never legally wed so he wasn’t technically his husband.
“One of the previous managers had gotten us Michael Jackson’s alligators from Neverland Ranch….” he said.
Neverland was ordered to be shut down in 2008 when Jackson was reportedly not paying his employees nor his insurance.
The alligators and crocodiles were then moved to Joe Exotic’s private zoo where they were killed in 2015 in a fire that consumed their housing.
The documentary leads us to believe that it was an inside job by Exotic himself, but it’s a horrific shame that animals were tortured in the process.
