Louis Theroux is set to debut his ‘Tiger King’ documentary in a few weeks and that probably means things are going to get even weirder in that world in the build up to it, starting with this story about how Jeff Lowe’s wife reckons he was recently poisoned before suffering a stroke.
The story comes courtesy of TMZ, who said the following:
Jeff was not breathing when she found him on March 18 around 3 AM at WinStar World Casino where they were staying. She quickly called 911, but says, “I thought he was dying in my arms.”
Lauren says when EMTs arrived they determined Jeff was suffering a stroke — and decided he had to be airlifted to a hospital in Denton, TX. She says the medical staff there worked miracles to limit the damaging effects of the stroke and save Jeff’s life.
Lauren says what’s strange is that doctors have run a battery of tests, and so far at least, haven’t been able to determine what caused Jeff’s stroke — and that’s made her very suspicious about something and someone.
She tells us on March 17, hours before the stroke, she and Jeff were out on a dinner date when a strange man approached them … claiming he knew them and even knew their favorite drink orders. Lauren says they have no clue who he was, but he lingered when a crowd of ‘Tiger King’ fans gathered to take selfies with them.
Lauren says they suspect that’s when this mystery guy spiked Jeff’s drink with something that might have caused the stroke.
Lauren says she had a sip of Jeff’s drink that night and immediately started feeling off, and he completely crashed out on the ride home. Once they got back, she says he was still acting out of sorts and when she left the room and came back … he was turning green and blue, his heart stopped, and she thought she lost him.
Jeff says he doesn’t remember any of this, but he does recall the unsettling encounter with a man who approached them on their date and allegedly knew what they liked to drink and had met them before. As Jeff puts it … “it’s just odd.”
Wow. That’s a very weird chain of events isn’t it, but I kinda gotta ask these two why they’re letting strange/mystery guys buy them drinks. I suppose if he said he was a fan of ‘Tiger King’ and wanted to buy you a drink you wouldn’t think anything of it, but Jeff and Lauren were kinda painted as the villains of the piece so they definitely need to be more careful when they’re out and about. Surprised something like this hasn’t happened already.
