Duane 'Dog' Chapman won't marry again, says daughter

Dog the Bounty Hunter, aka Duane Chapman, has been left a widower after the sad passing of his wife Beth, who died at the age of 51 earlier this month.

Beth, who often appeared alongside her spouse in his reality TV series, had been fighting throat cancer since 2017. After undergoing a 13-hour-long operation to remove tumorous growths, the cancer sadly spread to her lungs and she was placed in a medically-induced coma after a choking incident. She died on the morning of Wednesday, June 26.

In an emotional Twitter post made after her mother's memorial service, Beth's daughter Bonnie wrote: "Love you forever mom. You’ve got a halo now ... I’ll never forget you, mama. You were such a strong woman, and you taught me to always be strong."

She added: "You were strong for everyone, and you taught me it’s okay to let go. I’d never thought I’d lose my mom at 20. I told her I thought she had a couple years left, but in her eyes she disagreed."

Now, in a recent Instagram story Q&A session this week, Bonnie has spoken out about her mother's passing. After one fan asked if Duane would "someday remarry," Bonnie was quick to shut down the possibility of that ever happening, claiming the relationship Beth and Dog had was: "one of a kind."

She added: "[Dog] found his soulmate. No one can replace her in his heart. Their love was one of a kind, it made me believe love truly exists."

She also added that she was managing to cope with the loss of her mother, stating: "Just remembering that cancer can no longer hurt her. She’s no longer in pain and finally feels normal again. I do miss her like crazy."
