OKLAHOMA CITY, OK. (THECOUNT) — Carole Baskin, the star of smash hit Netflix documentary,”Tiger King” claims the streaming giant made her out to be the alleged killer of her late husband, Don Lewis.
Baskin, owner of Big Cat Rescue, slammed Netflix producers Wednesday saying the documentary, was largely “lies and innuendos,” at least when when it came to the way she was portrayed.
In a post on her Big Cat Rescue website, she drops some alleged tea about Don’s final months before he disappeared, and what she describes as erratic behavior.
Carole heavily implies Don had Alzheimer’s disease, and even claims he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. She says he was an avid dumpster diver in his final days, and would even bring random homeless people over to sleep at their home. She also claims he began defecating on their property grounds, adding he was a sex addict.
Yeah, she kinda went all scorched earth on him. She also claims Don was no millionaire when they met — as suggested in “Tiger King.” Sounds like he did have a vast portfolio when he disappeared though.
In her post, Carole also attempts to discredit almost everyone who spoke about her in the documentary while addressing concerns viewers had with how she and her current husband, Howard, conducts their business.
There’s a bottom line though, and it’s essentially this … she says she did everything she could to help find Don when he disappeared, and even questions “Tiger King” director Eric Goode’s intentions in allegedly attempting to vilify her.
Baskin says if people want the truth and even more context than what she’s offering, they can find it here.
