Tiger King star Joe Exotic has been transferred from a county jail to a prison medical center according to The New York Post. The Post reports that inmate records show Thursday that Joseph “Exotic” Maldonado-Passage, 57, is currently located at the Federal Bureau of Prisons-operated Federal Medical Center Fort Worth in Texas.
Exotic’s fourth husband, 24-year-old bartender Dillon Passage, said in an interview that Exotic had previously been isolated at the Grady County Jail in Chickasha, Oklahoma, over coronavirus concerns. The facility “put him on COVID-19 isolation,” due to the fact that “the previous jail he was at, there were cases,” Passage said in the interview. He did not state whether Exotic had tested positive for the coronavirus, but said, “I’ve yet to speak to him since he moved.”
