Leland Chapman became well-known because of his famous father's bounty-hunting TV series. Outside of his career as a fugitive hunter, he has acquired some interesting hobbies. Learn more about Leland's career and romantic life.


Leland Chapman, son of the infamous "Dog the Bounty Hunter" Duane Lee Chapman, has a family of his own and has successfully established himself in the entertainment industry and sports.

He rose to stardom as a television actor and reality show personality. He also appeared in rapper Baby Bash's "Unforgivable" music video. Leland also starred in his father's reality television programs.

Leland was born on December 14, 1976, in Groom, Texas, to his mother, La Fonda Sue Honeycutt, Duane's ex-wife. Leland's stepmother was the late Beth Chapman, who passed away in 2019 after a battle with throat cancer.

Even though he comes from a family with a history of tracking fugitives, Leland's focus has broadened. He competed in amateur boxing and mixed martial arts (MMA) and even trained with former boxing champion Jesus "The Hawaiian Punch" Salud.


Leland had two bouts in the boxing ring, where he came out on top both times. Two of his opponents, Nolan "Sulla" Mower (1993) and Sam Quell (2009), were amateur boxers, and he defeated both of them.


Unfortunately for Leland, he lost to Lincoln Tyler in an MMA match in 2000. There is not much information on whether or not Duane's son continued to compete in combat sports; nevertheless, the young fighter has established a family of his own.

Leland has three children: two boys named Dakota and Cobie and a girl named Leiah. Dakota and Cobie, born in March 1995 and December 2007, respectively, are the TV star's sons from his 12-year marriage to his ex-wife, Maui Chapman.

Meanwhile, Leiah, Leland's daughter with his ex-girlfriend Lynette Yi, was born in 2010. Having moved on from his previous relationships, he is now married to Jamie Pilar Worley.



The Chapmans' reality TV show is one of the most famous shows showcasing the complexities of family dynamics. The family's previous shows include "Dog the Bounty Hunter" (2004-2012) and "Dog and Beth: On the Hunt" (2013-2015).

Leland did leave his father's first reality series in 2012, but he hasn't given up his well-known career as a professional bounty hunter. Since leaving the show, he has operated his own bail bond company in Hawaii, Kama'ina Bail Bonds.


In 2015, he relocated to Alabama and began living with his current wife. He is still working as a bail agent. In 2019, Leland, his father, and his siblings appeared on the TV program "Dog's Most Wanted."

Meanwhile, as he continues his work as a bounty hunter, his acting career has taken off. He starred with Alex McLoughlin, Scott Caan, and Taylor Wily in the famous 2010-2020 TV series "Hawaii Five-O."



In 2016, Leland married tattoo model Jamie. The couple resides in Hawaii and has a puppy named Kona. Leland often professes his love for his wife while posting cute photos of her on Instagram.

Leland is not only a well-known television star and athlete, but he is also a devoted husband.


However, the tattooed pair fueled divorce rumors after Jamie posted cryptic quotes on social media. In a since-deleted Instagram story, she wrote:

"Stop chasing after people & being the only one trying to fix everything. It's mentally and physically exhausting. You have to find peace with whoever comes and goes from your life. Don't be the only one putting in effort because you will lose yourself trying to save someone else."

On September 15, she posted a photo of a cuss-laced quote about what she would do if she were disrespected. Jamie continued to spark divorce rumors after replacing "Leland's wife" from her Instagram bio with "JAMIE PILAR. A fiddle of gold against your soul says I'm better than you."


With fans repeatedly asking if the couple had split up, Leland and Jamie decided to end the speculations by sharing their selfies and paying tribute to each other.

He also attempted to dispel rumors by posting an old photo of him and his wife and wishing her a happy birthday. In another post, Jamie shared a now-deleted selfie of herself and Leland with the caption, "My sexy hubba hubs."


By successfully navigating the waters of more than one professional path, he has established himself as a man of many talents. His family is well-known in the bounty hunting industry, but he has made a name for himself as a reality TV personality and a mixed martial artist.

Leland is not only a well-known television star and athlete, but he is also a devoted husband. Given his celebrity status, it's hardly surprising that online rumors about his marriage have taken off like wildfire. But Leland and Jamie's marriage appears to be rock solid.
