  • Tiger King star Carole Baskin is once again refuting claims that she killed her ex-husband, Don Lewis.
  • Baskin is seen dancing and mouthing the words, "No, I didn't," to the tune of Brooklyn Charles' Savage: Tiger King Edition in a new TikTok video.
  • The Big Cat Rescue CEO has maintained her innocence in her husband's disappearance since Tiger King first premiered on Netflix in 2020.

Hey, all you cool cats and kittens, Carole Baskin just wants to once again clarify that she had nothing to do with the disappearance of her husband, millionaire Don Lewis.

The Tiger King star returned to the spotlight in a TikTok video on Wednesday, dancing to the tune of Brooklyn Charles' Savage: Tiger King Edition. The song alleges Baskin killed her husband – who went missing in 1997 – though she was never charged with any crime for his disappearance.

In the video – which has since been deleted – Baskin is seen laughing and mouthing the words, "No, I didn't," as the song says, "Carole Baskin/ killed her husband/ whacked him."

Per NY Post, the Big Cat Rescue CEO appeared alongside two young ladies in the clip as they performed a dance routine to the song.

Baskin has maintained her innocence in her husband's disappearance since Tiger King first premiered on Netflix in 2020.

Claims that Baskin killed Lewis and fed him to her tigers made the rounds in the series, leading the Big Cat Rescue owner to come forward and refute the claims in a lengthy blog post.

The docuseries also reignited police interest in the case. In a tweet, Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said that authorities were trying to find new leads in the case, days after the show was released.

Fast forward two years and the disappearance of Lewis is yet to be solved, with Baskin sharing her own ideas of what might've happened to him.

During a November 2021 Reddit AMA, Carole shared that she thinks Don died in a plane crash.  

"Don loved to fly and was looking to buy ultralights and experimental planes," she said at the time. "I believe Don crashed a small experimental plane or ultralight into the Gulf for a number of reasons. He wasn't licensed to fly yet did all the time."
