'Dog the Bounty Hunter' Reacts to a Rumor about Wife Beth’s Death in an Official Statement
Celebrities are always bound to be at the center of a hoax, but the one where they are reported dead seem to be a favorite of those looking to stir the waters.
Duane Chapman, more commonly known as Dog, the Bounty Hunter, was recently forced to come to public to put an end to a rumor surrounding his wife, Beth Chapman's, death.
It is a fact that Beth has been fighting a stage II throat cancer for a while, but Duane was quick to announce that the word being spread online was false.
SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT
On Tuesday, the bounty hunter took to his official Facebook account to say that Beth was not only alive but also working hard with him and their crew as they filmed their brand new show, "Dog's Most Wanted."
Duane also used Instagram to let his fans and followers know that everything was just fine and they had nothing to worry about by posting a message saying: "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."
BATTLING CANCER FOR THE SECOND TIME
The reality television stars have been going through some very rough times ever since they learned that Beth's cancer had returned in 2018. Since then, Beth has been in and out of the hospital several times, including for an emergency surgery.

A PARENT'S WORST NIGHTMARE
Not only that, but their hearts also skipped several beats after not being able to contact their son, Garry Chapman, after receiving a text about a Be On Lookout alert.
The Douglas County schools sent parents the text due to a possible Columbine copycat threat, which started after Sol Pais, an 18-year-old from Florida, bought a pump-action shotgun.
However, Pais never got the chance to harm anyone, as she took her own life at the base of Mt. Evans. According to Jeff Srader, Jefferson County Sherriff, she died of an "apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound."
