WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- “Dog the Bounty Hunter” star Duane Chapman announced on Twitter that his wife Beth Chapman died on Wednesday in a Honolulu hospital.
- Chapman was placed in a medically induced coma over the weekend but she lost her battle with throat cancer Wednesday morning. She was 51.

Beth Chapman, who co-stars with husband, Duane Chapman, in the reality TV show “Dog the Bounty Hunter” for eight seasons, has died on Wednesday. Beth had been recently placed in a medically-induced coma in a Honolulu hospital.
Duane announced the news on Twitter, writing, “It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.”
The reality star was diagnosed with stage II throat cancer in 2017. Later that year, she happily announced that she was cancer free. But in 2018, cancer returned.
Duane had been updating fans on Beth’s condition since the weekend. He initially tweeted: “Please say your prayers for Beth right now thank you love you,” with a photo of her hand in the hospital bed.
Dog married Beth in 2006 but met when she was 19, and he was 35. She had four children: Dominic, Cecily, Bonnie Jo and Garry, the latter two of which she shared with Dog.
Beth became a licensed bail bondsman at the age of 29, making her the youngest in Colorado state history at the time. Her stepdaughter, Lyssa, later broke her record at the age of 19. Beth would go on to become the president of the Professional Bail Agents of the United States, according to AOL News.
The couple also starred on “Dog and Beth: On the Hunt,” which ran for three seasons until 2015. Dog and Beth were in the process of doing a new show for WGN called “Dog’s Most Wanted.”
