If you’ve been on the Tiger King bandwagon, you’ve gotten to know Doc Antle, the fame-seeking, slightly cultish founder of Myrtle Beach Safari.
Throughout the beginning of the seven-part docuseries, Antle brags about his celebrity visitors, the movies that have used his animals and his appearances on late night TV.
If you go to Myrtle Beach Safari’s page, there’s actually a lot of proof of these celebrity appearances. In honor of the interesting Tiger King character, Billboard has compiled a list of the music stars who have visited Doc Antle’s wildlife destination.
Honorable Mention: Britney Spears
Ok, so this one wasn’t at Myrtle Beach Safari. Britney Spears’ performance of “I’m A Slave 4 U” at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards featured Doc as the handler in charge of the tiger who would not only take the stage with Spears at Radio City Music Hall at that year’s VMA ceremony, but sit in the same cage as the pop star.
