While he had confessed quite a few times that his life will never be the same after Beth, he does want to live life as it is.
Duane "Dog" Chapman is going through one of the toughest phases of his life where he has found himself lonely and heartbroken after the demise of his wife Beth Chapman in June 2019. He has now revealed that he too is not doing well physically and financially, reports The New York Times.
Earlier his manager, Amy Weiss at Brillstein Entertainment had said to NYT that, "Dog’s very lonely and I was there at many points in the hospital with him, and it was very difficult." She added, "He’s lost, but he knows he must go on and provide for his family."
However, he recently revealed that following Beth's demise, he has fallen into some financial hardships and is struggling to figure out ways to sail through. He attributed this to Beth's expensive cancer battle and also a huge family to support.
"I'm broke," he told the NYT and added that if he does not get things in control he might have to let go of his house in Colorado.
He also shared his health-related struggles in the Dr. Oz show where he revealed that he has been "diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism." Due to this condition, a blood clot travels to your lungs and blocks blood flow which is potentially life-threatening.
In the show, he recalled the time when he found out about his condition and had said that he is not afraid to die since he lost his partner of 13 years. But now, he takes it back. "I said, after Beth left, I'm not afraid to die... I take that back," he confessed. "I'm not afraid to [die], but I don't want to."
He went on to say that he wants to get back to TV so he could make money and provide for his family. Also, he wants to accomplish his dream of being a Sheriff where he would also film for television. "I think it'd be a hit," he said.
Besides, Dog the Bounty Hunter recently addressed the questions that his kids had posed on his friendship with Moon Angell, Beth's assistant, and their son's ex-girlfriend. Speaking to Radar News, he was all praise for her presence in his life.
"Moon has been a trustworthy and loyal friend to me for over 20 years. She has been with my family through many ups and downs," Chapman told the publication. However, he added that there will never be another Mrs. Chapman and that Beth is irreplaceable. “I know Almighty God hears my broken heart and I didn’t ask him for another Mrs. Chapman, but I asked him for a friend and He gave me Moon,” he explained.
He continued that while there will never be another Beth, that does not mean he has no right to be happy or live life as it is. "Moon is experienced. It's just that. Who knows what my future holds, but right now I need her,” he told Radar news. There will never be another Mrs. Dog but that doesn't mean I have to be so sad."
Here's hoping Dog finds his light at the end of the tunnel!
