Louis Theroux regrets not delving deeper into Joe Exotic’s colourful sex life
(Picture: BBC)Louis Theroux regrets not grilling Tiger King star Joe Exotic more about his throuple, after he married both John Finlay and Travis Maldonado – together.
Way back in 2011, Louis interviewed Joe – real name Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage – for his BBC documentary America’s Most Dangerous Pets before the zookeeper became the single most talked about man on the planet following the Netflix series, Tiger King.
Louis, however, barely scratched the surface when it comes to Joe.
Since they first met almost a decade ago, the absurdly eccentric big cat owner has run for Governor, married again, and been sentenced for 22 years after he was found guilty of plotting to kill his wild cat farm rival Carole Baskin, shooting five tigers dead and illegally selling rare wild animals.
President Donald Trump is looking into giving him a presidential pardon, Brad Pitt wants to play him in the Joe Exotic movie and Metro.co.uk revealed he’s planning his showbiz domination from a prison cell.
But for Louis, the 49-year-old admitted he should have dug deeper into the 57-year-old’s sex life.
