On June 26, 2019, Beth Chapman died at the age of 51 from throat cancer. The loss devastated her husband, Dog The Bounty Hunter star Duane Chapman, who she had been with for 13 years. Now that six months have gone by since her passing, Duane seems to be dating again, but some members of his family don't support the person he's allegedly seeing.
He's rumored to be dating Moon Angell, a longtime family friend of his and Beth's. In fact, following Beth's death, Moon posted a tribute to her on Twitter, calling her "A MIGHTY WARRIOR GODDESS FULL OF STRENGTH BEYOND #’s"
Well this week, Dog posted a photo on Instagram and in it, he is very close to Moon, while in the caption, he thanks her. It's something that is very upsetting to his daughter, Lyssa, who left a comment on the pic that was just three barfing emojis. It's since been deleted.
So why the bad blood? Lyssa made it pretty clear recently on Twitter, writing, "If someone who met your family by dating your brother, tried to date your father after your step- mom died what would you do ? If you went to your mothers closet and saw she moved all her clothes and replaced them with her own, what would you do ? #ItsNotWhenOrWhyItsWho"
That's not all though - last month, in a now-deleted tweet, Angell called Lyssa "Lil Miss TMZ Rat." Lyssa responded by writing, "You're disgusting woman. Any person who moves in on a man weeks after losing his wife, who you were supposed to be a 'friend' to, Is the lowest scum on the planet-Which for you wasn't that far of a step down from where you were before. God will get you MARY !!!"
Meanwhile, Dog has addressed his relationship with Moon, telling Radar:
“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. All my children are grown and gone on their own, there’s no one left to help me! Moon is experienced. It’s just that. Who knows what my future holds, but right now I need her. There will never be another Mrs. Dog but that doesn’t mean I have to be so sad."
He added, "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."
If that wasn't clear enough, his rep told Fox News that they are not dating, explaining, "They are friends and have been for many, many years. Beth knew her well also for 25 years. They are not dating. She has been helping out as Duane is really missing Beth and needs someone around."
Lyssa isn't buying it though and has made her stance clear, tweeting, "My dad is a GROWN ASS MAN. His money. His dynasty. But you can guarantee that my name is not going down in history as a person who supported this."
