The TV star is serving 22 years in jail for plotting to murder animal rights activist Carole Baskin, but his health has taken a turn for the worse in recent months, with a cancer diagnosis and COVID-19 battle.
Joe has reached out to various people to try and get himself out of prison - including former U.S. President Donald Trump - and it seems he's now hoping the "WAP" star might be able to use her leverage to set him free.
He posted a message to Cardi from his Twitter account which read, "When you see the truth in Tiger King 2, I need you to rally everyone together to be my voice of freedom. Be my hero, girl."
Cardi spotted the message on Thursday (28Oct21) and asked her Twitter followers, "Wait is this the real tiger king?"
Joe's lawyer then replied and said that he'd love to initiate a call between Cardi and his client to talk about the case.
John M. Phillips wrote, "I represent Joe. He heard about your message from prison. I'd love to put you two together on a phone call next week."
Joe's plea for Cardi's help comes after she previously voiced her support for the star after watching the Netflix series about his zoo last year.
"They did Joe so dirty over and over again... who you think is more wrong? Narcissist Joe? Or Greedy Carol? And why?" Cardi tweeted at the time. "Bout to start a GoFundMe account for Joe. He shall be free."
