Joe Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, is serving 22 years on 17 counts of animal cruelty and conspiracy to assassinate his arch-enemy Carole Baskin
Dillon Passage, 24, who is Joe Exotic’s fourth husband, gave his first full interview on Andy Cohen Live from SiriusXM, where he confirmed that Joe Exotic had recently been transferred from Grady County Jail in Oklahoma to the FMC Fort Worth prison, where he is being held in a medical center.
Passage does not believe that Joe has a coronavirus, but that he has been placed in 14-day isolation to ensure that he has no symptoms before joining other inmates.
The 57-year-old is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence for 17 counts of animal cruelty and conspiracy to assassinate his sworn enemy, Florida-based fat cat lover Carole Baskin.
Variety has confirmed that Joe Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, is in a Texas prison medical center, but authorities cannot confirm the reasons for the HIPAA restrictions
“As far as I know, he has no coronavirus,” said Passage, who now lives in Florida and worked as a bartender before the coronavirus pandemic.
“But it was in Grady County jail where he was before he was transferred to this medical center where he was transferred and they said it was possible that he would be quarantined for 14 days.
“We talk three to five times a day, but since he was transferred to this new facility, they have placed him in COVID-19 segregation because of the previous prison he was in, there have been cases.
“I haven’t spoken to him yet since he moved.

“Quarantine and cold”: Dillon awaits the pandemic in Florida, where he worked as a bartender in a hotel
Dillon also opened for the first time his relationship with the unforgettable star of the viral documentary series.
The 24-year-old admitted that he was a drug addict when he met her future husband on the gay dating site Grindr two weeks before their marriage on December 11, 2017.
Dillon said he was addicted at the time to “prescribed narcotics” and in particular “Xanax”, Dillon said marriage – Joe’s fourth – was a form of “rehabilitation” for him.
“I was in a very bad situation in my life when I met Joe,” he said. “I was going through things. I was addicted and being around animals gave me a purpose. I felt like I was doing something with my life, it was like my own little drug rehab.
And the Florida-based bartender does not regret his hasty marriage to the former zoo keeper and former presidential candidate.
“I love Joe, he’s been there for me in my darkest moments and I’m not just going to give up on him when he needs me the most,” said Dillon.
Admitting that he “definitely took the plunge” with his marriage, Dillon also insisted: “I’m not ashamed of it.”

And while Cohen seemed confused as to why the “handsome and young” bartender would marry Joe, Dillon said it was not for the money – revealing that he had signed a marriage contract.
“He was just super nice to me and he turned out to be very authentic, a down to earth good guy,” he told Cohen of Joe “charismatic.”
“I wasn’t looking for anything Joe had. All I wanted to do was stay at home and take care of my animals.
And Dillon’s family also accepted the relationship.
“My mother was shocked at first, she said,” He is as old as me, we are the same age!
“But I mean they were cool with that, they were not critical, they were very open to the idea of having Joe in the family. “
