The Full Breakdown of 'Dog the Bounty Hunter’s Public Feud with Daughter Bonnie Ahead of His Wedding
"Dog the Bounty Hunter" star Duane Chapman and his daughter Bonnie were involved in a series of public feuds ahead of his September wedding. Here is what happened.
Reality star Duane Chapman and his daughter Bonnie were involved in a public feud a week to the 68-year-old's wedding to his fiancée Francie Frane; after it emerged, he did not include Bonnie and her half-sister Cecily on his guest list.
Cecily reportedly thinks she was not invited to the ceremony alongside her sister because they remind Dog of their mom, Beth. Still, Bonnie opened up on the main reason recently.
Bonnie took to the social media site, Twitter, to explain the reason her famous father did not extend an invite to her and her older sister. According to the 22-year-old, it had to do with her participation in the Black Lives Matter movement last year.
Bonnie claimed her father was fired by Unleashed TV for his homophobic views and comments on her cast members on "The System," a show aired on Unleashed TV.
According to Bonnie, the show was focused on social justice advocacy and protesting violence and racial bias by police. However, she added that she was sad to see her dad revert to his old racist ways.
Through a spokesperson, Duane, Bonnie's father, released a statement claiming Bonnie's comments were false. He noted that she and her sister were simply used by those bearing grudges to put a strain on his wedding.
Bonnie also noted that she forgave her father for his wrongs towards her mother because she wanted to have a relationship with him.
He asked his fans to pray for Bonnie and Cecily so they could get off from the lies and the false stories about their family. He added that although he was saddened by the rift in his family, he loved them and prayed for them every day.
Although her older sister Lyssa refuted Bonnie's claims, Bonnie shared a post from Lyssa's new book where she detailed her father's supposed infidelity with his nannies.
As recorded in Lyssa's book, Bonnie shared the post to portray that their father had always been a cheat. Unfortunately, the bad blood in the family does not look to be calming soon as both Bonnie ad Duane have unfollowed each other on social media.
Also, Duane's daughter Lyssa shared a cryptic tweet which many believe was aimed at Bonnie. She wrote, "I'd rather eat crumbs with bums, then steaks with snakes." Fans who got the statement quickly joined the trend, hammering on Bonnie.
Bonnie also noted that she forgave her father for his wrongs towards her mother because she wanted to have a relationship with him, but the reality star seems to have drifted farther from her.
