Dillon Passage denies Joe Exotic's claims that he has cut off contact from his imprisoned husband, claiming that his letters to the Tiger King star have not been forwarded to him.

Joe Exotic's husband Dillon Passage has said that he has been left 'heartbroken' after reading the Tiger King star's disturbing three-page letter that was released over the weekend.

In the note, penned from his prison cell, the 57-year-old hit out at his alleged poor treatment behind bars, predicting that he will be "dead in 2-3 months".

Exotic also criticised Passage, accusing him of breaking off contact and revealing that seeing pictures of him enjoying his new-found fame on social media left him feeling "dumped like a dog in a shelter".

Replying via Instagram, 22-year-old Passage wrote: "My heart is breaking after reading Joe's letter. He is living in hell right now and I'm outraged by the way he is being treated. I can't even begin to imagine how that is breaking his spirit.

"I love Joe and I'm standing by him. The photos that I post on here are a highlight reel of my life... What you don't see are the hours that I'm alone at home, missing my husband and my friend.

"I've been writing letters and it is a shame to hear that he isn't receiving them... I know they limit the amount he can read in a week and I only hope they eventually get to him.

"Joe, I hope that this reaches you too. Know that I love you and I'm fighting for you everyday. #freejoeexotic"

Exotic's legal team are continuing to petition Donald Trump to grant the former zookeeper a presidential pardon and secure his release from jail.
