Joe Exotic is making moves from prison – or at least he is trying. Joe married his current husband Dillon five years ago, but he wants to end his marriage for a new man. 

Will the third time be a charm?

Joe met his latest lover, John, in prison last year. John served 11 years and was released a few weeks ago unexpectedly. 

The Tiger King star is in prison but regularly posts to social media, including his Instagram. A couple of weeks ago, he shared a picture of John and called him “The Man, the Myth, the Legend.”
