    If you haven't yet binged the wild new Netflix documentary, Tiger King, well, we won't spoil the details for you.

    What we will say though is that it's an insane seven-episode rollercoaster ride about big cat ownership and breeding in the US and introduced us to a bunch of pretty sketchy characters in it. 

    Along with the show's main personality, zoo owner Joe Exotic, we're given a lot of insight into zoo owner/polygamist Doc Antle and tiger sanctuary (and possible murder suspect...?) owner Carole Baskin.

    Turns out both have hung out with Britney Spears at separate times at the MTV VMAs. 

    Twitter users have unearthed Brits' iconic 2001 I'm A Slave 4 U performance at the VMAs and you might remember that she was joined on stage with that huge yellow python and a tiger. Well, Doc Antle looks to have been that tiger's handler during the performance.

    Then it seems the following year at the 2002 MTV VMAs, Britney was seated next to... Carole Baskin, the tiger sanctuary owner. 

    Vanity Fair have apparently had this refuted by Carole's team - they say it wasn't her - but it sure looks like her, cheetah print dress and all.

    Either way, there's no doubt Brits knows pop culture gold when she sees it.
