There has been a major twist in the Tiger King tale...
It turns out that there's a little more to Carole Baskin than initially met the eye.The Big Cat Rescue owner - and the arch-nemesis of Joe Exotic - has recently given us a rare glimpse into her personal life.
And, let's just say, she didn't hold back with the details.In the revealing interview, Baskin opened up about her sexuality and gave an in-depth discussion about her sexual history. Yep, there's something I didn't think I'd be writing on a Tuesday morning.
Now, this revelation has come as a shock to many people...Because there's only one thing Carole Baskin is really known for.
For starters, Tiger King outlined Carole's involvement with her ex-husband, Don Lewis' sudden and mysterious disappearance.
via: imdbSo, what are the facts? Well, on the morning of August 18, 1997, Carole's millionaire husband, Don vanished at the age of sixty. His car was later found at a nearby airport.
The self-made millionaire had helped Carole transform their forty acres of Florida land into the animal sanctuary it is today.
via: TwitterSome of Don's relatives speculated that Carole was involved in his disappearance.
Rumors quickly began circulating that she murdered him and fed him to the tigers...
via: TwitterIn fact, this claim was made by the oldest of Don's 4 children, Donna Pettis, then forty-two, back in 1998. She claimed that Carole feeding his body to the big cats would be “a perfect scenario to dispose of someone. We were upset that the cops didn’t test the DNA on the meat grinder."
It was reported that, 2 months before he went missing, Don tried to take out a restraining order against Carole, claiming she’d threatened to shoot him.
via: TwitterHe was not granted the order. Carole has repeatedly protested her innocence, and says that any claims made that she fed her husband to the big cats are "ludicrous."
But, 5 years after Don went missing, Carole had him legally declared dead...
via: IMDBAnd to this day, nobody has been charged with anything to do with his disappearance.
Don's disappearance is still an active cold case...
Since the show aired on Netflix...
via: NetflixCarole and her current husband, Howard, have been subjected to constant abuse online.
Carole spoke out about the ordeal recently...
via: IMDBSpeaking to the New York Post, she said: "He’s [Joe Exotic] been trying, since 2009, to get his minions to kill me. He was constantly going on his internet show, saying that he has to get rid of me. It was very disturbing. The kinds of people who back up what he does are not stable people. It would be one thing if he went out to mainstream America. But he was going out to a group of whack-jobs."
And when the reality star turned lawyer, Kim Kardashian. tweeted about the ordeal...
More and more people wanted to hear Carole's "confession" about the whole meat grinder rumor.
Wow the amount of texts I’ve gotten about Tiger King since I tweeted about it all have mentioned their belief that… https://t.co/uXHQUJs8Ky— Kim Kardashian West (@Kim Kardashian West)1584923892.0
She has characterized such talk as the "most ludicrous of all the lies."
via: IMDBPointing out in a blog post that her tigers eat meat broken down into 1-inch cubes before being ground in her tabletop meat grinder, she said: "The idea that a human body could be put through it is idiotic."
Even though Carole's comments seemed to be legit...
People are still convinced that she was behind the murder of Don Lewis.
Three things are certain in life: Death, Taxes, and Carole Baskin definitely murdered her husband https://t.co/gYNlvted0H— Victoria Fox (@Victoria Fox)1587559348.0
