Joe Exotic claimed in an impassioned letter he will be dead in two to three months if he doesn’t get help from President Donald Trump.

The Tiger King star, 57, also said his ‘soul is dead’ as he explained that he has been unable to remain hopeful while incarcerated ’24/7′ without access to a phone, email, or commissary, according to the letter obtained by TMZ on Monday.

Asking for a ‘miracle’ from the President by being released, he wrote that although he requires blood infusions ‘every four weeks’ for common variable immune deficiency (CVID) he has ‘not had one since the end of January.’

In his letter to ‘supporters, fans, loves ones’, he said: ‘I’m losing weight, sores won’t heal, I’ll be dead in 2-3 months, it’s like I have been sent to death row, they stopped all of my medication expect one, this place is hell on earth [sic].’

Joe went on to ask those who have seen his husband Dillon Passage enjoying himself to not send pictures of what he is doing, as he hadn’t received a letter or a phone call from him since being imprisoned, according to dailymail.co.uk

He wrote: ‘I don’t even know if I’m married anymore, seems everyone is so busy making money and being famous.

‘I don’t get even a letter from Dillon, everyone sends pictures of him having fun and all but as a person screaming for help I am asking you to stop.’ 

Joe compared his incarceration to being on death row, and said he felt those who had worked with him had taken advantage before stabbing him in the back.

In another part of his letter he made some questionable comments on race, as he claimed he would be treated better if he was not a white man. 

Maintaining his innocence, Joe concluded the letter by pleading to famous names like Cardi B and Kim Kardashian to help him get out of prison. 

On Thursday, Tiger King star Joe Exotic was removed from precautionary coronavirus isolation and transferred to a prison medical center.

The 57-year-old former zookeeper then received care at the Federal Bureau of Prisons-operated Federal Medical Center Fort Worth in Texas, according to inmate records obtained by the New York Post.

According to Joe’s fourth husband Dillon Passage, 24, Exotic was being held in isolation at the Grady County Jail in Chickasha, Oklahoma due to his previous jail having had COVID-19 cases.

Joe, real name Joseph Maldonado-Passage, is currently serving a 22 year jail sentence after being convicted of two counts of murder-for-hire.

He was found guilty of plotting to kill his rival animal rights activist Carole Baskin, 58.
