CAROLE Baskin has told The Sun that "no one should believe" Joe Exotic's "aggressive cancer diagnosis."
It comes after the Tiger King star begged for an early release from prison following the apparent cancer news.
Baskin told The Sun: "Joe has been claiming to be on death's door every year since I first heard of him in 2004.
"He's claimed to be dying of just about everything.
"He's the little boy who has cried wolf so long that I don't think anyone should believe a word he says."
Controversial Exotic, who is currently serving time in a federal prison in Texas for a murder-for-hire plot, has asked for a compassionate release from the high-security facility.
"It is with a sad face that I have to tell you the doctors called me in today to break the news that my prostate biopsy came back with an aggressive cancer," Exotic wrote on Instagram.
Exotic explained he was detailing the diagnosis not in an attempt to gain people's sympathy, but to ask for the judge in a compassion argument.
He also explained he thinks animal rights activist Carole will have a field day over his diagnosis.
"I am still waiting on the results from other test as well. Right now I don’t want anyone’s pity and I’m sure Carole Will have her own party over this!"
"What I need is the world to be my voice to be released, 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! Say a prayer everyone & be my voice."
Accompanying the caption is a photo of Exotic holding a tiger cub with the words "Carole will have a party over this" followed by a second photo of a handwritten note reading his caption.
Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, was sentenced to 22 years in federal prison in January 2020 after his attempt to kill Baskin.
They both were featured heavily in the true-crime Netflix series revolving around each other's escapades.
Season two of the series starts on November 17.
