Joe Exotic's Husband Admits That Joe's Life Is 'In Danger' In Prison, While Joe Says He'll Be Dead In 'Months'
Exotic is serving a 22-year prison sentence after being found guilty of 19 crimes that included animal abuse and the murder-for-hire plot against Carole Baskin. (Joe says he's innocent of the latter charges, despite being found guilty).
“His life is in danger,” Passage told host Tommy Little. “When he found out he had COVID, all of his organs started shutting down."
“It all started with the ulcers on his face, and so once that starts, it’s downhill from there. From the last thing we’ve heard he is starting to get the ulcers and they’re not healing. It’s very detrimental.”
Also in the interview, Passage also confirmed Exotic has been in solitary confinement for four months now, something he called “cruel and unusual punishment to the max, for sure”.
“I’ve only been able to speak to him maybe six times since the show dropped. It’s pretty ridiculous. The only time I can chat to him is with the lawyers on call.
“He’s not doing good. He’s doing his best to stay hopeful and wishing for the best, but it’s heart-wrenching for him. And a really big downer. He can’t necessarily grasp and stay updated with what’s happening out here.”
Asked what was happening with the pardon Exotic was asking for from Trump, which would see Exotic released from prison early, Passage said the legal team was “very positive about it”, but that “with all the stuff going on in the world, I have no idea”.

Earlier this month, Exotic himself gave an update on his health. In a letter to his “Supporters, Fans, Loves Ones”, published by TMZ, he claimed he had an immune disorder he was born with and that he hadn't been receiving blood transfusions for it since January.
“As most people know I was born with CVID [common variable immune deficiency], not Covid-19, and hemogamaglobinanemia and required blood infusions every 4 weeks,” he wrote.
“I’m loosing weight, sores won’t heal, I’ll be dead in 2-3 months. It’s like I have been sent to death row.”
At the time, Dillon responded to Exotic's letter on Instagram.
My heart is breaking after reading Joe’s letter 💔 He is living in hell right now and I’m outraged by the way he is being treated. I can’t even begin to imagine how that is breaking his spirit. I love Joe and I’m standing by him. The photos that I post on here are a highlight reel of my life… What you don’t see are the hours that I’m alone at home, missing my husband and my friend. I’ve been writing letters and it is a shame to hear that he isn’t receiving them… I know they limit the amount he can read in a week and I only hope they eventually get to him. Joe, I hope that this reaches you too. Know that I love you and I’m fighting for you everyday. #freejoeexotic ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
