Joe Exotic is explaining why he finally filed for divorce from husband Dillon Passage … he wants to get hitched to a new guy he met behind bars!!!
The Netflix star’s lawyer, Autumn Blackledge, tells TMZ … Joe’s new love interest is a man named John Graham, and the prison romance is the reason Exotic recently filed divorce docs from jail.
Joe sums it up this way … “God works in amazing ways.” Yes, He does.
As we first told you … Joe and Dillon were estranged for more than a year before Exotic filed for divorce, and Dillon’s already got a new man in his life too.
Joe’s attorney tells us he met John in February 2021 when they were both locked up at FMC Forth Worth in Texas … and even though John’s since been released from custody, it seems he’s had a lasting impact on Joe.
According to court docs, obtained by TMZ, John was in prison for burglary and possession of a firearm. He was sentenced in 2012 to more than 12 years in prison, although prison records show he was released March 15 of this year.
Joe married Dillon on Dec. 11, 2017 … only 2 months after Exotic’s previous husband, Travis Maldonado, died after accidentally shooting himself.
Now, Joe’s got his eye on his third marriage.
