The family of Carole Baskin’s missing millionaire ex-husband aired a commercial during her “Dancing With The Stars” debut, demanding answers about his disappearance.
Don Lewis’s daughters and attorney bought airtime as the infamous “Tiger King” star prepared to hit the dancefloor on the ABC show Monday night.
The spot featured Lewis’ three daughters Gale, Lynda and Donna, plus his former assistant, Anne McQueen, and the family attorney — who all allege Carole has something to do with Don’s disappearance.
It’s been 23 years since Lewis went missing. Joe Exotic alleged she fed him to her tigers at Big Cat Rescue, but Baskin has fiercely denied this multiple times.
Speaking on the commercial, family lawyer John Phillips said: “Don Lewis mysteriously disappeared in 1997, his family deserves answers, they deserve justice. Do you know who did this or if Carole Baskin was involved?”
His oldest daughter Donna said: “We need to know what happened to our father.” The family then announced a $100,000 reward for any information.
According to TMZ, Lewis’ family feels her participation in the dance competition series undermines the ongoing investigation into his whereabouts and is a “grossly insensitive” decision by the show’s producers.
Baskin was set to dance to “Eye of the Tiger” for her first performance.
