This time it’s the turn of his niece Chelsea Putmin, who is the daughter of Joe’s sister Sarah. She worked at the zoo off and on between 1999 and 2017 and had a weird relationship with him by her own account.
Here’s what she had to say to The Daily Mail:
In the early 1980s, Joe worked as a chief of police of a small town in Eastvale, Texas, which is about 20 miles north of Dallas.
At the time Joe lived with his then girlfriend Kim, who had his son Brandon Chappell. He’s now 38 with three kids of his own.
Joe was in and out of Brandon’s life when he was growing up, at one point just a few years ago Brandon and his then wife, both worked at the zoo with Joe.
Joe would go around telling everyone this was his son, he made no secret about it. Brandon was even in a few scenes in the Netflix show.
Things soured between the pair when Joe allegedly wanted Brandon’s wife to do some fraudulent activities with the zoo’s books and checking account, causing an argument between them.
Eventually, Brandon packed up with his family and returned to Texas.
There were videos of certain people performing sex acts on some of the animals at the zoo.
I never personally saw any of the videos. I didn’t want to see them, I just heard about them.
The documentary didn’t show the half of Joe’s evil.
If it was up to me I would lock him up and throw away the key. I hope he burns in hell.
Damn. That’s a pretty damning indictment right there isn’t it?
I guess we’re gonna find out more and more about Joe Exotic for the next few weeks, but you’ve gotta think that it’s only a matter of time until those videos of people having sex with animals emerge or someone gets tracks his son down and gets an interview with him. Heads will roll.
