Rumors were circulating recently about Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman meeting up with a mystery woman just a few months after Beth Chapman’s death. News reports soon began surfacing that the “mystery woman” was actually a family friend and Dog was not even near thinking about dating again.
On top of that, Beth’s daughter Cecily Chapman takes to Instagram to post an old photo of her parents kissing. Then, Dog reshares the post to his Instagram story with the hashtag “#AlwaysAndForever.” It’s very clear that Dog is NOT ready to get back into the dating game anytime soon… or ever?
Dog’s family is not happy about these dating rumors circulating
According to reports, Dog promised Beth that he would not date again after she was gone. “For two to three years, she knew this might happen,” Dog says to Entertainment Tonight. “So she would say, ‘Who is going to sit next to you?’ And I said, ‘No one.’” Beth responds with, “Big Daddy, you better not let another girl take my place.” “I won’t,” he promises.
“Even though she is not physically there… mentally and spiritually, she is there,” he adds.
Dog and Beth’s daughter, Bonnie, also shoots down the dating rumors. “He found his soulmate,” she says. “No one can replace her in his heart. Their love was one of a kind, [and] it made me believe love truly exists.”
Bonnie is the first one who speaks out when news leaks of Dog allegedly dating a mystery woman. She says confidently that her father was not dating this woman. “Pissed on my father’s behalf that he can’t go on a business dinner without someone speculating he’s on a date,” she writes on her Instagram story. “Leave our family alone, please. Leave my father alone, let him try to continue our business in peace.”
“If you really wanna know who she is, she’s a member of our crew, and dad was out with 8 other people at that dinner,” Bonnie says about the dating rumors.
Although people still speculate and stick their nose into business that’s not theirs, we sympathize with the Chapman family during this time. In the meantime, Dog is preparing for his new show Dog’s Most Wanted. The show will be premiering September 4th, so mark your calendars! In the meantime, check out a teaser trailer for the show below.
