Joe Exotic, the subject of the film “Tiger King,” has left the medical center due to an aggressive cancer battle.

Joe Exotic, the Tiger King star, has been battling an aggressive form of cancer.

He has been transferred from a Texas medical facility to one in North Carolina as part of his prostate cancer treatment.

In early November, Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, revealed that he had been diagnosed with “aggressive cancer.”

Exotic was transferred from FMC Forth Worth, Texas to FMC Butner, North Carolina, according to TMZ.

While the Netflix star remains in federal custody, this transfer was made to ensure that he receives proper treatment.

Exotic will be able to receive treatment for his prostate cancer at FMC Butner, which reportedly offers “extensive medical services” and also has a full hospital.

It’s unclear what kind of care he’ll get at this facility right now.

Exotic’s cancer diagnosis was announced in early November, as previously stated.

He didn’t say what kind of cancer he had, but he did say he had a prostate biopsy recently.

“Everyone, It is with a sad face that I have to tell you that the doctors called me in today to break the news that my prostate biopsy came back with an aggressive cancer, I am still waiting on the results from other test as well,” Exotic wrote on social media.

Despite his cancer, the Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness star said he is focused on getting out of prison.

Exotic was previously sentenced to 22 years in prison after being found guilty of a variety of charges, including plotting a murder-for-hire against Carole Baskin.

“Right now, I don’t want anyone’s pity, and I’m sure Carole will throw her own party over this!” the controversial figure continued, “What I need is for the world to be my voice to be released, because they have the proof I DID NOT DO THIS! And there is no reason for the district attorney to drag this out, so I can go home and get treatment on my own or enjoy what life I have left with my loved ones!”

John Phillips, Exotic’s attorney, confirmed his client’s account on Twitter.

“He [Exotic] and I spoke Monday with both of us in tears at a point,” he wrote, echoing Exotic’s calls for his release from prison.

By so many definitions, he requires freedom, and we are…
