Beth Chapman, 'Dog the Bounty Hunter' Star, Dead at 51

“Today, she hiked the stairway to heaven,” says husband Duane “Dog” Chapman.

Beth Chapman, star of the TV series "Dog the Bounty Hunter," has died.

Her husband, Duane "Dog" Chapman, confirmed the news on Wednesday morning in a tweet to his followers. "It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain," he wrote, "Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side."

Beth had been battling cancer and recently stopped chemo. She was placed in a medically induced coma last Saturday.

Chapman was first diagnosed with throat cancer in 2017 and chronicled her journey on A&E’s "Dog and Beth: Fight of Their Lives." At the time, she underwent surgery to have a Stage II tumor removed. The cancer returned in November 2018 and earlier this year, she was hospitalized with respiratory issues.

On Mother’s Day 2019, she addressed churchgoers in Florida and explained why she was no longer undergoing chemotherapy.

"Chemotherapy is not my bag, people. Sorry, that’s not for me," she told the congregation. "So for me, this is the ultimate test of faith. This is my ultimate lesson. And it will either be taught to me or to you. And I am fine with taking the hit for everyone else. Because I think I know another guy who did the same thing."

Beth and Dog first met in 1989, before they eventually tied the knot in 2006, following the death of Duane’s daughter Barbara. She has two children from previous relationships, Dominic and Cecily, as well as two children with Duane; Bonnie and Garry.

Dog asked for prayers last week, before sharing a photo of her in the hospital on Monday, after being placed in a coma.
