In a new interview with “The US Sun”, the 58-year-old reported that the medical care in his involuntary temporary home was miserable.
Tiger King Joe Exotic has prostate cancer. In a new interview with “The Sun”, the 58-year-old reported how he fared in the months after the shock diagnosis. Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, is currently in prison for attempted murder of his former colleague Carole Baskin (60).
When Exotic learned of his serious illness in May, he asked US President Biden to pardon him. “At home I could receive decent medical treatment and decent food,” the 58-year-old justified his request at the time – but nothing came of the release.
The cancer has already spread
Now the “Tiger King” complains in a new interview with the tabloid “The US Sun” that he has not yet received any medical treatment for his cancer. It is already forming metastases, so it is spreading in his body. According to Exotic, the malignant tumors have already spread to his stomach and abdomen.
“I haven’t received any medical treatment since the diagnosis in May. Whenever I pee, I throw up at the same time – that’s how bad the pain is. I limp when I walk because my pelvis and hip hurt so much, ”said the 58-year-old. His stomach had been torturing him for over a year and he was steadily losing weight.

President Biden should hear “the truth”
He has been waiting for an endoscopy since the end of October, but the medical care in prison is pathetic: “Even in a home for dogs, they treat you better,” says the American. In addition, Exotic reports of bad experiences behind bars: “I saw how many people were dragged out of this prison dead”, it was time for the president and the other politicians to “hear the truth”.
Despite all the suffering, the former private zoo owner, who became famous through a Netflix documentary series, sees the situation as realistic: First he wants to find out how bad things really are for him, then he wants to decide with his medical advisors whether treatment would make sense. “If the cancer is already in the third or fourth stage, it’ll get me,” says Exotic. He goes on to add: “I am ready to die.”
