Tiger King has kept us captivated and on the edge of our seats since the infamous docuseries hit Netflix for our guilty binge-watching pleasures. However after the seven episodes made their debut, the Tiger King story has not stopped. AJ Gibson and Mikalah Gordon, of RADIO.COM's CHANNEL Q, speak incredibly candidly with Joe Exotic’s current husband, Dillon Passage in a new interview. The morning show hosts ask him everything from questions about presidential pardons to Joe’s bizarre relationship habits.
Passage says he will always be on “Team Joe” and will stand by Joe’s side. The young Tiger King star has even gone to great lengths to enlist some star power to potentially help Joe get out of prison. Passage says he reached out to Cardi B, who has joked about starting a GoFundMe campaign to help the docuseries star get out of prison. Additionally Passage says he’s reached out to Kim Kardashian. However, these efforts have not been fruitful for the couple.
After the President made comments about “looking into” Tiger King and Joe Exotic’s case, Passage felt that the President blew off Joe’s situation. Passage shares with AJ and Mikalah, “It’s really up in the air. Joe is a big Trump supporter. I personally do not care for politics… but Joe was super excited that Trump even said his name.”
Although Passage has made it very clear that he will always stay by Joe’s side, that does not mean he would not consider pursuing another relationship while Joe is in prison. Passage explains, “I am not on any dating apps and I don’t plan to be either, but Joe and I have had the conversation that if I decide to move on and find somebody he is going to be super supportive of that…. and even if I do decide to find somebody I am still going to talk to Joe as much as I do usually.”
Finally, AJ and Mikalah ask what is next for the Netflix star. To make things very clear, Passage says he wants to be his own person. He vehemently makes his point and says, “don’t get me wrong when I say this, I absolutely love Joe, but for the rest of my life I don’t want to be known as Joe Exotic’s husband. I want to be known as Dillon Passage, I want to make a name for myself.”
Passage has a manager now and shares with us his love for all things EDM and festival culture. Passage says, “My heart lies with music… music festivals and the EDM world are a big part of my life, so if I can do anything with that it would be awesome, but I also love animals just as much. There may be things in the future in the EDM world and the animal world, so stay tuned for that!”
