Tiger King's Carole Baskin claims she NEVER 'trash-talked' Joe Exotic and reveals the truth behind their famous feud

TIGER King's Carole Baskin has claimed she NEVER 'trash-talked' Joe Exotic and revealed the truth behind their famous feud.

The 59-year-old's rivalry with exotic animals owner Joe is one of the key parts of the hit Netflix docu-series.

Joe, 57, is currently in prison after being convicted of trying to hire a hitman to kill big cat sanctuary owner Carole.

Appearing on Loose Women today, Carole said: "Joe and I have never had a conversation.

"We still have never had a conversation, so if they were selling the idea of it being this big feud, they certainly had plenty of footage of Joe trash talking me, but they couldn’t get me to trash talk him.

"I never said anything nasty about him personally.”

She added: "We had been working with the producers for five years because they said they were working on a film that was going to be the equivalent of [documentary] Black Fish for big cats.

"We thought this would be a great thing because big cats don’t belong in cages.

"Just like everybody else around the world, we sat down and binge-watched it and at the end we were just gobsmacked, we could not believe that was what they came up with after what we thought they were doing.”

Viewers have been divided over whether Carole is everything she claims to be on the documentary, and with so many people bingeing it, Carole was on the receiving end of an inevitable backlash.

She told the panel: "My phone started ringing and it rang every two minutes for the next three months.

"So many people were calling and just screaming threats about how they wanted to kill me, they wanted to kill my family, they wanted to burn the sanctuary to the ground. I was totally shocked."
