Dog the Bounty Hunter holds back tears as family 'falls apart after Beth's death'


Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman was on the verge of tears as he spoke about how the family are struggling to come to terms with the death of Beth.

The 66-year-old bounty hunter was speaking on People Now when emotion almost took over him as he revealed the difficulties the family have faced since Beth lost her battle with cancer.

He said that some of the kids are “barely making it” without their mum and he fears the family ‘will fall apart’ in the wake of her passing, two months ago.

In an emotional interview, Duane said: “Each one copes differently, there is a few that really barely making it.

“We don’t know what to do. We haven’t read, we weren’t prepared. I lost my mother first, and when my mom passed away, I’m like, ‘I wish dad would have died first, you know, ’cause I love my mommy.’ So I went to them and said, ‘I’m so sorry that I didn’t die first and mom did.’”

Duane added: “And they were like, ‘Yeah dad, why?’

“So I was like, ‘Oh my god, I know what that feels like, I should’ve been the one. The guy goes first.’”

Duane added: “So that’s hard for them.

“And I guess I’m the softy of the group, because I never wanted to punish. I said, ‘Your mom is gonna get you if you don’t do that.’

“So now I gotta be the one that does that, and I don’t like that and they don’t either.”

Duane and Beth married in 2006 and had two children together – while she had two others from previous romances

Duane’s wife, Beth Chapman, died on Wednesday 26 June 2019

The day-to-day tasks are now falling on Duane’s head as the kids withdraw from helping out to any great extent.

Duane admitted that their offspring are ‘contributing’ but most of it is falling on his shoulders.

He added: “Its not been that long. They are helping cook, because Beth was a fantastic cook.”

Duane then started to get emotional as he added: “I am doing their laundry, I’m vacuuming, making my own bed.

“So I don’t wanna lie, they do nothing. They’re kids. … It’s just, ‘Dad’s there, he can do it.’”

Beth died aged 51 from aggressive throat cancer, passing away on June 26.
