Tiger King star Joe Exotic's husband, Dillon Passage, says he does not have a "secret" son. On the heels of the release of the Netflix blockbuster, Passage -- who married Joe in 2017 -- said Brandon Chappell is not his stepson.
In a radio interview on Channel Q's The Morning Beat, Passage, 22, denounced reality TV producer Rick Kirkham's claims that Joe, 57, has an adult son named Brandon who briefly appeared in the Tiger King documentary.
"Joe does not have any kids, okay?" Passage told the radio show. "I recently heard the same rumor, and I was like, are you trying to tell me that I'm a stepdad to a 38-year-old and I have grandkids? Joe used to be with this girl, her name was Kim. But when him and Kim split up, Joe's brother actually got with Kim and they had a son and that is Brandon Chappell."
Passage also said that he will always be 'Team Joe," even if he does eventually meet someone else and moves on while his husband serves out his 22-year prison sentence.
