Carole Baskin is reportedly suing Netflix for using her footage in the upcoming sequel, Tiger King 2.

According to Variety, Baskin and her husband Howard Baskin have filed a suit in Tampa, Florida against the streaming giant and prodcution company Royal Goode Production for allegedly breaching their contract. The Baskins have claimed that Royal Goode Productions have breached the contract by continuing to use footage of Carole and Howard without their permission. Carole and Howard claimed that they only signed appearance release forms for the first Tiger King documentary.

The lawsuit document reads, “Understanding that the Appearance Releases limited Royal Goode Productions’ use of the footage of the Baskins and Big Cat Rescue to the single, initial documentary motion picture, the Baskins believed that any sequel – though odious – would not include any of their footage.” It continues to claim that Royal Goode Production was not granted the right to use the footage for sequels or additional episodes. The Baskins are demanding the footage of them to be removed from the entirety of Tiger King 2.

In the past, Baskin has been vocal regarding the making of the second film. She told Variety, “I wouldn’t call Eric Goode or Rebecca Chaiklin true documentarians. I mean that was just a reality show dumpster fire.” The lawsuit also pinpointed Baskin’s qualms in how the docuseries would portray her.

Tiger King 2 premieres on Netflix on November 17.

In other entertainment news, Will Smith has released the trailer for his fitness journey docuseries The Best Shape Of My Life.
