"Tiger King"'s Doc Antle Onstage With Britney Spears at 2001 MTV VMAs


If you watched Netflix's insane newTiger Kingdoc and thought animal handler Doc Antle looked familiar, you're right! AsUs Weeklyreports, eagle-eyed fans noticed that Antle appeared onstage with Britney Spears way back at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards. The now-60-year-old Antle could be seen standing in a cage with a live tiger behind Spears as she performed her hit "I'm a Slave 4 U." Other Twitter users believe that at the 2002 VMAs, Spears could be seen sitting in the audience alongside anotherTiger Kingfigure: animal activist Carole Baskin. However,Us Weeklyclaims the lady sitting next to Spears in those pics just happens to be a Baskin lookalike.
