Carole Baskin is suing Netflix for allegedly using unauthorized footage of her for the upcoming Rei Tigre sequência.

In court documents filed in federal court on Monday and obtained by PEOPLE, Carole and her husband Howard state that they declined to be involved with Rei Tigre 2 when approached by the streamer and production company Royal Goode Productions.

Carole Baskin’s response was clear and unequivocal: 'Não. And lose my number,’ ” the complaint reads.

Despite their refusal to take part in Rei Tigre 2, a trailer for the upcoming sequel released in Octoberprominently depicts Baskin as a central element of the sequelusing footage that was captured during filming for the first Rei Tigre documentary series, a reclamação afirma.

We believe that [Rei Tigre 1] showed Goode and Chaiklin to be devoid of ethics, integrity, and any concern for the welfare of big cats,” Ele continuou, adicionando: “We made it very clear to Goode and Chaiklin that we had no desire or intent to be involved in [Rei Tigre 2].”

Howard said he and Carole were “chocado” to see the footage used in the Rei Tigre 2 trailer released last month.

While we cannot stop Netflix and Royal Goode Productions from producing low-brow, salacious and sensational programing, we do believe that we have the right to control footage filmed of us under false pretenses,” a declaração concluiu. “We like to believe that most Americans will agree that we should be entitled to protect our reputations in this manner and hold entertainment giants to their word.

Quando contatado por PESSOAS, a spokesperson for Netflix had no comment.

Rei Tigre: Assassinato, Mayhem, e loucura, que estreou no serviço de streaming em março 2020, captured the years-long feud between 60-year-old animal rights activist Carole and Joseph “Joe Exotic” Maldonado-Passage, the now-imprisoned founder of an exotic animal park in Oklahoma. The show also touched on the disappearance of Carole’s late husband, Don Lewis — a millionaire and animal sanctuary owner.

Maldonado-Passage, 58, is currently serving a 22-year sentence in FMC Fort Worth in Texas for various crimes, including paying Allen Glover $3,000 to kill Carole and for killing tigers to make room for more big cats at his park.

Following the news that Rei Tigre 2 will be released this year, Carole slammed Maldonado-Passage as well as producers Goode and Chaiklin in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

I don’t know how they put out a Rei Tigre 2 when Joe Schreibvogel’s [aka Joe Exotic] in jail and I’m refusing to be played again,” ela disse. “Rebecca Chaiklin said she wanted to ‘clear the airabout what they did to me in Rei Tigre. I told her to lose my number. There is no explanation for such a betrayal and false portrayal.
