Following on from her sudden and bizarre Tiger King fame, Carole Baskin has resorted to selling personalized videos for a bit of extra cash.

But her most recent video was done free of charge for presidential candidate Kanye West, and Carole decided to sing her own version of "Gold Digger." Eyebrows have most certainly been raised...

Netflix's docuseries, Tiger King gave us a majestic insight into the captivity of big cats here in America.

The 7-part series retold the story of a war between a very flamboyant tiger owner named Joe Exotic and his enemy, a Florida-based animal activist named Carole Baskin.

But through all of the memes and laughs...

The spotlight is always placed upon Carole Baskin, mostly in regards to her leopard print wardrobe and her mysteriously missing husband.

So, what are the facts?

Well, on the morning of August 18, 1997, Carole's millionaire husband, Don Lewis, 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.

Some 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...

In 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.

He 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."

5 years after Don went missing, Carole had him legally declared dead...

And to this day, nobody has been charged with anything to do with his disappearance.

Don's disappearance is still an active cold case...

And the Hillsborough County Sheriff, Chad Chronister, wants fans of the show to help crack it. "I figured it was time to use the popularity of the show to see if anyone wanted to come forward with new leads."

Since the show aired on Netflix...

Carole and her current husband, Howard, have been subjected to constant abuse online.

Carole spoke out about the ordeal recently...

Speaking 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.

She has characterized such talk as the "most ludicrous of all the lies."

Pointing 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.

Anyway, putting all the murder conspiracies to one side...

Aside from all the grisliness, the mystery, and the suspicions - Carole has got herself a new job, making personalized videos for fans on the video site, Cameo.

Yep, it turns out there's a market for that kind of thing...

via: Twitter

But Carole's cameo business has been booming, and she has been consistently churning out the personalized videos for eager fans.

She's making a generous amount of money off it, too...

via: Twitter

Because she's charging around $207 per video. 

Some people are seriously spending this much money on a personalized Carole Baskin video...

But it seems that she's done her most recent video free of charge for a very special guest.

We're all well aware of Kanye West's presidential campaign...

And we're also well aware of the fact that it hasn't been a smooth ride... his campaign rally over the weekend was an emotional rollercoaster!

Well, it seems that Carole Baskin is here for Kanye...

And she decided to record her very own version of "Gold Digger" for the rapper to wish him luck on his presidential adventure.

Carole was sat at her signature green screen wearing a floral headband...

via: Twitter

And she started by saying: "Hey all you cool cats and kittens! Kanye, I want to wish you luck on your big adventure by singing along to Kanye West's song, 'Gold Digger'".

She pre-warned her viewers that it was going to be bad...

via: Twitter

And she also suggested that we turn down our speakers for this one. If you say so, Carole...

Carole then dove straight into her own version of Kanye's popular song...

via: Twitter

"I ain't saying he a vote digger, but he ain't messing with no poll-poll," she half-heartedly rapped twice, before saying, "And there you have it!".

It was all very cringe-worthy...

via: Facebook

And it seems that the internet agrees!

Carole's version of the song wasn't comfortable to watch...

via: Facebook

And people felt the song choice was highly inappropriate considering Carole's track record of husbands!

But for some...

The video went down a real treat!
