Carole Baskin claims Tiger King 2 producers found her ex-husband Don alive and well


Tiger King star Carole Baskin has claimed the producers of the show have found her ex-husband Don "alive and well" in Costa Rica.

Speaking to Phillip Schofield and Josie Gibson on This Morning, she said the producers of the show had acquired a letter from the authorities that said they had known her husband had been alive since at least 2002.

She said: "[The producers] said that my husband, Don Lewis, is alive and well in Costa Rica.

"And yet all of this hay has been made about me having something to do with his disappearance, when Homeland Security has known where he is at least since back then.”

She added: “So I don’t know how it is that Homeland Security says he’s alive and well in Costa Rica but I’m glad to hear it.”

The reality star was the centre of controversy when the first documentary series of Tiger King claimed last year that she had something to do with the disappearance of her first husband.

However, Carole has always hit back at the claims – which went as far to suggest she may have killed him or fed him to the tigers at her sanctuary – and has now revealed her husband is allegedly still alive.

Speaking about how she felt duped by the show's producers, she said: “They said we just want your answer on this so that we can lay that to rest.

"That’s not what they did, they turned it into this huge mystery."

Carole said she was told the first series of Tiger King would be comparable to Blackfish, a documentary about the consequences of keeping orcas in captivity, but instead focused on “a made up feud”.

As a result, she's now made her own documentary series called 'Carole Baskin's Cage Fight', along with current husband Howard, where she aims to showcase the treatment of big cats and their abuse.

She added: “I’ve never even spoken to Joe Exotic. My husband’s the person who had handled the lawsuit when he tried to use our name in order to ruin our reputation. And so it’s just all based on lies.

“I have been in the same room with him in court. But I’ve never spoken to him.”
