Jeff Lowe — Joe Exotic‘s enterprise accomplice and mentor — raised eyebrows on ‘Tiger King’ over his seek for a nanny and has of us speculating it is all a stunt … however the nanny in query tells TMZ — she’s legit, simply not full-time.

She says she truly met Jeff and Lauren four years in the past in Las Vegas — the place she lives and works as a mannequin — again after they drove to Sin City with just a few tiger cubs … as those that have seen ‘Tiger King’ recall.
We’re instructed Masha’s settlement was to work part-time as their child woman’s caretaker throughout enterprise hours at Jeff’s Oklahoma zoo — totally on weekends — which she’s been doing not too long ago.
