‘Tiger King: The Doc Antle Story‘, a spin-off of the successful series Tiger King from 2020, premiered on Netflix on December 10, 2021, and included more than Bhagavan “Doc” Antle’s time with the big tigers.
This season, viewers were also given distressing details about Doc’s connection with his ex-wife Radha Hirsch, which began when she was fourteen years old.
So, who exactly is she? Continue reading this Radha Hirsch bio to learn everything there is to know about Doc’s ex-wife.
Radha Hirsch On ‘Tiger King: The Doc Antle Story’
Tiger King: The Doc Antle Story was supposed to be a three-part series about a big cat lover named Doc Antle, a.k.a. Bhagavan.
He also ran his own private zoo in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where he collaborated with Joe Exotic (as featured in the first Tiger King film).
As a result, Radha Hirsch appears in the second episode of the new docuseries “The Great Escape.”
The show then shifts its emphasis to Radha’s mother, who discusses her daughter’s connection with Doc.
Radha appears to have encountered Doc when she was 11-12 years old. Radha would often stay with different families at the Yogaville ashram because her mother had to move a lot for work, and it was there that she met Doc.
She remembered being enamoured with him the first time she saw him.
She was also a babysitter for Doc and Betsy at the time.
Radha and Doc eventually fell in love, and by the time she was 14, they were already in a romantic relationship.
According to the show, Radha’s mother witnessed them kissing and, understanding the inappropriateness of the relationship, she removed her daughter from Virginia and enrolled her in a Catholic school.
Doc, on the other hand, was not easily defeated. Doc picked Radha up on her way to school sometime later, and the two eloped.
Doc had put Radha in a motel outside of Washington DC for about a month, according to Radha.
The couple then married by falsifying Radha’s father’s signature on the marriage certificate.
At the time, she was only 15 years old.
Young love, they say, never lasts, and the couple proved it by splitting up just two years later.
Radha claimed that she and Doc had issues and that when she finally recognised things for what they were, she packed her belongings and left with a friend for California.
What Has Happened to Radha Hirsch & Where Is She Now?
Radha Hirsch was living in Arizona in 2021 and kept a quiet profile.
Doc’s life was a page out of a book. He’s been married three times, and his third wife is Radha, whom he allegedly abducted when she was 15 years old.
Betsy ‘Brahmi‘ Rogers was Doc’s first wife, whom he met in high school. Following a one-month retreat at Yogaville, the couple changed their names shortly after getting married.
He was always disloyal, according to Betsy, and would sleep with “teenage females whose parents didn’t pay attention to them.”
She also accused Doc of physical abuse and claimed he became enraged when she became pregnant. And then he was gone when the baby arrived.
Doc married Sumati Steinberg, a Yogaville follower, after separating from Betsy. “That day on the lake, he hit on numerous of the teenage girls.
Sumati recalls meeting Doc for the first time when he was 22 years old, and she was 14 years old.
Sumati turned 15, and Doc, like all of his other relationships, slept with her. She further accused Doc of being “very violent” and attempting to murder her “four times in four years.”
“At one point, he brags to his girlfriends about breaking two of my ribs to silence me.” Sumati continued, “And it’s true, he did.”
Sumati eventually became pregnant. Doc grabbed his belongings and left once more.
