Tiger King star Carole Baskin comes out as bisexual in a new interview.

Tiger King star Carole Baskin has revealed that she is bisexual and "could just as easily have a wife as a husband".

The 59-year-old, who shot to fame on the Netflix documentary series earlier this year, has been married to Howard Baskin - her third husband - since 2004, having met him in the years after her second husband Don Lewis's mysterious disappearance.

Speaking in a new interview, Baskin said that she had come to terms with her bisexuality in the 1980s while engaged to a psychologist who primarily dealt with LGBT issues.

"I was always very male-oriented in the things I did... I never had any mothering instincts or anything, you know, I never played with dolls," she said in an interview with PinkNews.

"And so I always thought that there was something off there, that I couldn't quite put my finger on.

"But it was during the '80s that I discovered that through dealing with the LGBT+ community that I [realised] I had just as equal feelings for women as I did for men.

"I have always considered myself to be bisexual. Even though I've never had a wife, I could just as easily have a wife as a husband.

"As far as the way I feel about us, I think we are all one and I just don't see us as being different genders or different colours or anything."

Baskin recently competed on Dancing With The Stars in the US and is now working on a new series about animal exploitation with her husband.
