The Tiger King star, 57, also said his ‘soul is dead’ as he explained that he has been unable to remain hopeful while incarcerated ’24/7′ without access to a phone, email, or commissary.
Asking for a ‘miracle’ from the President by being released, he wrote that although he requires blood infusions ‘every four weeks’ for his CVID condition he has ‘not had one since end of January.’
Appeal: Tiger King’s Joe Exotic claimed he’ll ‘be dead in 2-3 months’ in an impassioned letter obtained by TMZ on Monday, as he said he is not receiving medical treatment in prison
In his letter to ‘supporters, fans, loves ones’, he said: ‘I’m loosing weight, sores wont heal, I’ll be dead in 2-3 months, it’s like I have been sent to death row, they stopped all of my medication expect one, this place is hell on earth [sic].’
Joe went on to ask those who have seen his husband Dillon Passage enjoying himself to not send pictures of what he is doing, as he hadn’t received a letter or a phone call from him since being imprisoned.
He wrote: ‘I don’t even know if I’m married anymore, seems everyone is so busy making money and being famous.
‘I don’t get even a letter from Dillon, everyone sends pictures of him having fun and all but as a person screaming for help I am asking you to stop.’

Joe compared his incarceration to being on death row, and said he felt those who had worked with him had taken advantage before stabbing him in the back.
In another part of his letter he made some questionable comments on race, as he claimed he would be treated better if he was not a white man.
Maintaining his innocence, Joe concluded the letter by pleading to famous names like Cardi B and Kim Kardashian to help him get out of prison.
