Joe Exotic’s wild adventures are continuing, even though the “Tiger King” star has been behind bars since before he became famous. Joe was previously married to Dillon Passage. The big cat enthusiast mysteriously filed for a divorce recently.

Tiger King fans around the globe wondered why Joe Exotic wanted to leave his husband. It turns out that Exotic has another flame. Joe wants to marry his prison lover, John Graham.

Joe’s lawyer, Autumn Blackledge, filled TMZ in on the news. Graham is the reason Joe is seeking a divorce. The couple had been estranged for over a year. Dillon appears ready to move on with his life.

Joe Exotic met his new partner in February at the FMC Fort Worth prison. John Graham has since been released from custody. The two have continued their relationship.


Court documents indicated that John served time for burglary and firearm possession. In 2012, he was sentenced to over a year in prison. His release only came on March 15 of this year.

Joe Exotic was previously married to Travis Maldonado. Travis infamously shot himself by accident, resulting in his death. The first season of Tiger King caught the shocking incident. Hopefully, Joe has better luck in love this time around.
