Exotic Joe receives a helping hand from someone he once considered a mortal enemy … and that would be Jeff Lowe, who claims to be back in Team JE.
Jeff and his wife, Lauren, came to ‘TMZ Live’ on Monday ahead of the premiere of ‘Tiger King 2’ – which hits Netflix Wednesday – and they told us a lot has changed.
For starters, Jeff says the GW Exotic Animal Park they operated from Oklahoma will indeed be moved to a new location – but he claims he’s in the process of recovering all of his animals from federal authorities.
You will remember the government raiding the park, confiscated animals and expelled the Lowes, based on allegations of ill-treatment and not having the proper papers.
Jeff claims the entire federal investigation was based on BS peddled by none other than Carole baskin – and as a result, he insists that the federal authorities are about to drop all charges against him.
The next step … start their own lawsuits! Jeff and Lauren told us that they were going after Carole, PETA and others he believes were responsible for starting the federal raid. What’s even crazier is that he’s recruiting Joe’s lawyers to help him.
Look at what he says about how they’ve apparently worked things out since the last time around – even though Jeff technically helped land Joe in jail, he’s now saying that some of those same conversations he’s had with the investigators years ago, could help JE’s case get started from jail.
Our sincere thanks to
