Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman’s Daughter, Bonnie Chapman, Hospitalized
Dog the Bounty Hunter star Duane "Dog" Chapman's daughter, Bonnie Chapman, was hospitalized recently for undisclosed reasons. The news comes just months after her mother, Beth Chapman, died following a battle with cancer.
Chapman posted a photo of her wrist sporting a hospital bracelet to her Instagram Stories, writing, "Finally home."
The 20-year-old is a makeup artist, and she posted to Instagram on Monday (Sept. 30), thanking fans for watching a livestream she had done the day before "even though I was in so much pain ... my back was acting out quite a bit." It's not clear if that's the reason she went to the hospital, but by Tuesday (Oct. 1), Chapman was well enough that she was back to advertising to potential clients via Twitter.
The Chapman clan have had a rough few months since Beth Chapman died on June 26 after a two-year cancer battle. Leland Chapman — Duane Chapman's son from his first marriage to La Fonda Sue Darnell — was hospitalized in July after tearing his ACL in pursuit of a suspect during one of the family's bounty hunts.
Duane "Dog" Chapman suffered a "heart emergency" in September, and in late September, during an appearance on the Dr. Oz Show, the TV physician diagnosed Chapman with a pulmonary embolism, warning him, “You’re a ticking time bomb. You’re not going to be here with the heart the way it is right now. Fear of death is normal. I’m surprised you don’t fear death when you’re chasing after convicts. But when you run away from [the] doctor, that means you have to do your own doctoring.”
He has since altered his diet and started taking blood thinners, and he says he's also working on stopping smoking.
