In a plot twist no one saw coming,Tiger King’sCarole Baskinis taking over control of her nemesisJoe Exotic’sformer zoo in Wynnewood, Oklahoma. So how exactly did this happen? Apparently, Big Cat Rescue Corp. was granted ownership of the zoo as part of a trademark judgment against Joe Exotic.
Basically, Carole won the judgment years ago but Joe never paid her the $1 million he owed. Flash forward to now, and a judge is saying that Joe’s transfer of the zoo to Jeff Lowe is fraudulent, which means Carole is taking over the land to—as TMZ puts it—“help satisfy that $1 mil judgment from the old trademark lawsuit.”
Jeff has 120 days to vacate the property (note: he gets to keep the animals), but apparently, he is not too upset about it and has big plans for a new park.
