It has been a long time 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 behind bars, and that won’t be changing anytime soon. It seems doctors believe that his cancer is spreading.
Joe Exotic has been suffering from prostate cancer, which is believed to be very serious. However, it seems that cancer is spreading and he doesn’t want treatment for it.
According to a letter obtained by TMZ, Joe Exotic stated that he recently had a lot of blood in his urine and has been bleeding a lot during his prostate cancer treatments.
Joe met with his urology specialist Wednesday who believes Joe’s cancer has spread to his bladder. While Joe said his specialist wants him to go through some testing to be 100%, he has decided he will not seek treatment, writing, “I want to stay here and just let it take its course.”
It is not really known just how much longer Joe has to live, but he makes one thing very clear – he will not stop in his quest for justice, saying, “The world has to know just how corrupt our justice system is … If I have to be the one to die innocent in here fighting for the truth maybe people around the world will finally speak up for the truth for once.”
Joe Exotic even wrote a new will a while ago for his fiance, Seth Posey, who he met over the internet. For the time being, Exotic doesn’t care about his cancer as he ended his most recent letter by saying, “I could care less about dying, my birthday is coming up soon and all I want is to see Seth.” We’ll have to see what’s next in store for him.
