The eccentric reality TV star married Passage in 2017, just months before he was jailed for 22 years after being convicted of plotting to kill Big Cat Rescue rival Carole Baskin.

Passage, 25, confirmed the spilt on social media, telling fans he ended the romance with his 58-year-old spouse due to the unwanted attention he had received since Tiger King became a global smash-hit on Netflix.

In a lengthy Instagram caption, Passage wrote: “In November of 2017 I met Joe who was there for me during a difficult time in my life. After just 9 short months he was arrested and, for the last two and a half years, we have been apart.

“I’ve always stood by his side and will continue to always love and support him.

“When ‘Tiger King’ was released on Netflix a year ago, my life was thrown into a world of media and public attention. Something that was completely foreign to me.

“I felt as if I had a microscope constantly looming over me which was and still is incredibly uncomfortable. With everyone pulling me in different directions, I found my manager @jefftduncan who, despite Joe’s recent social media tirades against, has always acted in my best interest and helped me navigate the complexity of the new situation I found myself in.

“To answer the main question the public wants to know, yes, Joe and I are seeking a divorce.
