It has been over a year since Joe Exotic became a viral sensation and well-known name after Nextflix’s “Tiger King’ blew up during the pandemic. The Tiger King star is still in prison at this moment. He also detailed his new romance recently.

Joe Exotic was previously married to Dillon Passage. However, he then filed for divorce so that he could marry his prison lover, John Graham.

According to TMZ, Joe Exotic is clearly smitten with John Graham. So much so, that he has compared their romance to Twilight. The ‘Tiger King’ star details his latest relationship in a letter he sent from his prison in Texas, in which he announced his engagement to John Graham.

As revealed by Joe’s attorney Autumn Blackledge, Joe Exotic stated that he met Graham when he was released from solitary, when they were housed in the same unit. They eventually started dating and one of them proposed to the other back in August last year.


Exotic said that Graham is the opposite of Dillon Passage, whom he called “selfish, younger … and wanting to be famous.” Exotic said that Graham is someone who isn’t seeking the limelight and who loves Joe for who he is.

The two still talk constantly even after John Graham was released from prison. Exotic described their romance as the one depicted in ‘Twilight,’ adding he has one of John’s shirts so he can smell him in the interim. The two are certainly happy and that is what matters in the end.
