Tiger King’s Jeff Lowe has suffered a stroke. The Netflix reality star was airlifted to hospital after a suspected poisoning, according to his wife Lauren Lowe.
Jeff was unresponsive in an Oklahoma casino before he was helped by emergency services.
Jeff’s wife, Lauren, alleges someone slipped something in his drink, which led to his life being in danger.
Lauren said Jeff was not breathing when she found him on March 18 at approximately 3am at WinStar World Casino where they were staying at the time.
She said she called emergency services upon finding him, but she was worried that Jeff was “dying in my arms”.

Medics discovered that Jeff, 54, was having a stroke and urgently airlifted him to a hospital in Denton, TX.
Lauren, 29, told TMZ she became suspicious about what caused Jeff’s stroke as medics couldn’t identify what caused it after running battery tests on him.
Lauren also recalled to the media outlet what the couple were doing before her other half’s stroke.
She said the couple were on a dinner date when a man approached them claiming he knew who they were and that he was aware of their favourite drink orders.
Lauren alleges that this is when she believes her husband’s drink could have been poisoned.
Jeff’s blood and urine tests have both come back negative for commonly abused drugs.
However, Lauren is still concerned an alleged perpetrator could have used something different to intoxicate her husband, which wasn’t tested for at the hospital.
The couple has not yet reported the alleged incident or their claims to the police.

Jeff is currently back at home recovering following his stroke.
Lauren revealed he still struggling with his speech and coordination.
Elsewhere, Jeff recently announced he’s signed up to star in a reality TV series with Lauren.
The television personality said the programme will follow his journey to opening his new zoo, Tiger King Park, in Oklahoma.
It will also give viewers an insight into the “struggle” of running an animal park.
Discussing the show, he told PEOPLE: “It’ll be our narrative on the Tiger King with evidence to support our sides of the stories.
“And it will be about the transfer of all these beautiful animals from Joe’s facility to the new facility.
“And then the day-to-day struggle of running something as big as a 60-acre animal park and all the intricacies of the employment of zookeepers and fighting all of the animal rights groups.”
