Where is Joe Exotic now?

JOSEPH Allen Maldonado-Passage, known professional as Joe Exotic, became a house hold name following the release of Netflix's series Tiger King in 2020.

Now, fans are wondering where he is and what he has been up to since his Tiger King days.

Where is Joe Exotic now?

Joe, 58, was sentenced to 22 years in prison back in January 2020 after he was convicted of multiple charges, including animal abuse and attempted murder for hire for the plot to kill Carole Baskin.

He is currently being held in a federal medical center in Butner, North Carolina, while he awaits a hearing on his sentence.

In July 2021, a federal appeals court ruled that he should get a shorter prison sentence because the trial court which convicted Joe, reportedly wrongly treated the two convictions separately in determining his sentence.

Does Joe Exotic have cancer?

In May 2021, Joe revealed that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer and had begged for a pardon in order to be released from jail.

His reasoning at the time was to get “proper medical care.”

In December 2021, Joe revealed that he was postponing treatment while he awaits resentencing on his convictions.

The decision comes after his physicians stated that postponing the radiation treatment would "not be detrimental to his health as it is unlikely to affect his prognosis or outcome," according to documents obtained by Fox News.

"Given the declination of radiation and the ability to postpone it pursuant to his own doctors, Mr. Maldonado does not want his resentencing hearing postponed any longer," and asks for a sentencing date between Jan. 20 and Jan. 31," the documents state.

"Additionally, if Mr. Maldonado is released within the next 6-18 months, more advanced options are available to him."

Prior to Joe's latest cancer news, Carole exclusively told The Sun that "no one should believe" his "aggressive cancer diagnosis," claiming that Joe has been "claiming to be on death's door every year since [she] first heard of him in 2004."

Is there a Tiger King season 2?

Following the success of Tiger King, Netflix revealed that the show was returning for a second series.

The second season debuted on November 17, 2021, but has not seemed to be as successful as the first season, with only a 33 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

In comparison, season one received a rating of 58 percent.
