Carole Baskin Comes Out as Bisexual

The 59-year-old Tiger King star confirmed that she is bisexual in an interview with PinkNews.

Carole told the outlet that she discovered her truth back during the AIDS crisis in the ’80s when she was spending a lot of time with the LGBTQ community.

“I was engaged to a psychologist, and that was his entire field, dealing with the LGBT+ community. It was during the period when AIDS was just wreaking havoc around the world, and people were losing their loved ones, and so I became very close to people in that community then,” she said.

“I have always considered myself to be bisexual. Even though I’ve never had a wife, I could just as easily have a wife as a husband as far as the way I feel about us. I think that we are all one and that we are all…I just don’t see us as being different genders or different colors or different anything,” she continued.

Carole Baskin Is Being Sued By Missing Husband Don Lewis's Family

Don Lewis‘s family is taking Carole Baskin to court.

TMZ reports that the animal activist, and current Dancing With The Stars contestant, is being sued by Don‘s daughters, Gale, Lynda and Donna, for defamation after watching her make jokes about his mysterious disappearance.

The legal docs, filed by the daughters and Don‘s former assistant Anne McQueen, state that Carole was “complicit with jokes about Don’s death on Dancing With The Stars, when judges brought up TikTok videos inspired by her storyline in Tiger King.”

Anne says that instead of participating in the jokes, Carole should have said something to stop them.

Don‘s family is also accusing Carole of being complicit with jokes about Don during her interview on Good Morning America when she promised to “really kill it next week”.

Just last week, the family, with their lawyer, John Phillips, aired a commercial during the premiere episode of DWTS for new tips on the whereabouts of Don, who went missing in 1997.

Family of Don Lewis, Carole Baskin's Missing Husband, Airing Commercial During Her 'DWTS' Debut

Some huge news just came in about tonight’s Dancing with the Stars premiere and one of the celebrities competing for the Mirror Ball trophy, Carole Baskin.

If you don’t know, Carole rose to fame just a few months ago as one of the key figures in Netflix’s Tiger King. One big story line that came out of the show was the mysterious disappearance of her millionaire first husband, Don Lewis. Many assumed Carole had something to do with his disappearance, though nothing has been proven.

Well, Don‘s family purchased airtime during the first commercial break of Dancing with the Stars to “implore the public to send tips regarding his mysterious disappearance,” TMZ reports.

The commercial will feature Don‘s three daughters Gale, Lynda and Donna, his former assistant, Anne McQueen, and the family attorney who bought the airtime on ABC. According to TMZ, all of them “allege Carole has something to do with Don‘s disappearance.”

The family feel placing Carole on television in this manner “undermines the ongoing investigation into his whereabouts and is a ‘grossly insensitive’ decision by the show’s producers.”
