Joe Exotic’s ex-husband Dillon Passage has introduced his new boyfriend to fans, describing him as his ‘rock’.

The Tiger King star, who split from Joe earlier this year, shared various photos of himself and his new beau on Instagram.

‘Everyone, meet John 👋,’ Dillon, 25, wrote. ‘I’ve planned on keeping my relationship private for personal reasons but lately I’ve been having a hard time dealing with things happening in my life and John has been my rock and helping me get through it all.

‘In short, this is an appreciation post for this special special man. Thank you for being you ❤️’.

He then joked on his Instagram Stories that fans had been keen to find out more about John, writing: ‘Y’all hoes couldn’t wait 2 mins to find this man.’

Joe has responded on Instagram, writing: ‘I wish Dillon and John well.

‘It would have been nice to have been told by Dillon instead of TMZ out of respect since I have paid his bills for 3 years while I sit in here. But what was I expecting, huh? No different from the zoo crew.’

The 58-year-old added: ‘But Joe has a surprise of his own coming up. He is so fucking sexy.’

Joe and Dillon married in 2017. When the zoo owner was sentenced to 22 years in prison for animal abuse charges and murder-for-hire, the pair continued to try to make their marriage work.

Dillon even helped spearhead an unsuccessful campaign to get Joe a Presidential pardon from Donald Trump, and often updated fans about him online. 

However, at the end of March, following a scathing message from Joe on Instagram stating that Dillon ‘no longer cared about him’, it was announced the pair would be divorcing. 

Joe and Dillon were both featured on Netflix’s hit documentary, Tiger King.
