The Tiger King universe was filled to the brim with multiple polarizing characters, and Bhagavan “Doc” Antle was no exception.

However, he has since refuted that unsettling claim in an interview with podcaster Theo Von, where Antle said: “I’m a single guy. I have married 25 years ago, but I’m a single guy, I’ve got girlfriends. It can’t be unique that I have girlfriends — it’s just that it got put on a screen.”
