Before being reunited with his husband, Dillon Passage, he’ll have his hair styled and be medically evaluated as part of his recovery plan in a Texas ranch or luxury hotel.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Love said: “We anticipate notification around the 10am to 2pm mark.
“With that said it could very well come much earlier or later but we do feel that we will have the pardon tomorrow.”
Love confirmed that they have already booked a huge Dodge truck limousine, from company Heaven On Wheels, to take the star off a secret hideaway for recuperation.

Love added: “We have the limousine fueled up and driver standing by.
“We went over [his release plan] and did a walk-through on it awhile ago [for security reasons].
“We are good to go and we anticipate the car between 10 AM and 2 PM tomorrow We are ready for the party.”
Lead investigator Love has always felt Exotic has has a “great shot” of being freed from his 22 year-sentence for animal cruelty and plotting to kill his nemesis, Carole Baskin.

Love revealed he has his cell phone on 24/7 and is “excited” to get the call confirming their hopes of Exotic’s release.
Love, who went to Washington in a private jet dubbed The Joe Exotic Express and Exotic One, insists Trump has been directly made aware of the pardon request.

Love said: “We call it the Exit Plan, initiated by me.
“Once we’re notified, whether it’s by television or phone, we will execute a plan.
“Team Tiger has a helicopter on standby, we have a remote ranch that no one knows the location except Team Tiger lead council and myself.
“The first thing that will happen: Joe will be taken off site and then placed in a helicopter with myself and a security team and an additional helicopter, we are going to go to a remote ranch, that’s remote to Fort Worth.
“We will go there for 48 hours of decompression. It is important.
“We want to make sure that he is loved, appreciated, catered to, but most importantly, he needs about 48 hours is what I’ve kind of dialed in on a decompression.”

Love says in his experience Exotic needs time to recover from being “institutionalized” after life in a cell.
“It’s not really deprogramming, you talk to anybody who’s ever been incarcerated, you can never get rid of the stigma of the institutionalization that it does to a person, but we want to have about a 48-hour period where we can get him ready for the world and ready for him to see his husband.
“He’s made it very clear, he wants to make sure his hair is done before he sees Dillon, and that’s important.
“You always want to be the best for your spouse and we can certainly agree and embrace that and we will facilitate that.
“So Joe’s got to have that platinum (service) done. That’s why we’ve got hair, wardrobe, and makeup, and we’ve got the best in the business.”

The 57-year-old reality star has long pushed for a pardon – even asking Kim Kardashian for help.
He is being held at the Federal Medical Center in Fort Worth and has said he fears succumbing to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Upon his release, Exotic plans to become a campaigner for prison reform.
Exoti – who suffers CVID immune issues – is poised to have a transfusion to bolster his health as well face a full scale medical evaluation.
He is meant to have them monthly, but has had just two in six months at FMC Prison.

“We have a chef that will be there, we have a full stock. It’s literally, if you can imagine what a utopia would be, anything you need, we’re going to have…a cheeseburger, we’ve got people who will go and get cheeseburgers, fried chicken, whatever you want.
“We want him to be showtime ready and we have folks from all walks of the medical field that get him ready and what I mean by that is make sure that all medical issues are ready: platelets are infused.
“We have a psychologist who will be with us to help with anything that he needs.
“We have everything covered, including wardrobes.

“He will get to pick from any 10 outfits because we want to make sure that we have the right attire, because he wants the world to see him not as the disheveled person that prison has made him to a degree.
“We are not going to have any cameras with us. It’s going to be a very private moment. Joe is a very flamboyant person.
“Joe is a colorful personality. If you look at someone when they’ve been incarcerated, they don’t look like that when they’re coming out, right?”
Husband Passage will be then driven to the secret location after the first two days.
Exotic has famed Beverly Hills attorney Brad S Small overseeing his business interests for commercial representation and protecting the reality star from being “exploited”.
The Sun has reached out to Joe’s lawyers who said Eric is the only member of the team authorized to comment by Exotic.
