A whole lot of people loved her. Snoop Dogg joined Beth Chapman’s family, friends and fans in mourning the Dog’s Most Wanted star, who passed away on June 26. The rapper shared a photo of Beth with her husband, Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman, and included a message for the bounty hunter and Beth’s family. “Beth. R. I. P. Miss [you] auntie, Dogg,” he wrote. “Be strong know that she made a transition and she has no more pain.”
Beth lost her battle with cancer at the age of 51. Her husband broke the tragic news to fans via a heartfelt statement shared to Twitter, where he wrote, “It’s 5:32 in Hawaii. This is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head Mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.”
Beth’s stepdaughter, Lyssa Chapman, commented on the post and thanked Snoop, 47, for sharing. “❤️❤️❤️Thank you, my dad was so touched you reached out to him. 💚💙💚💙,” she wrote. Bonnie Jo Chapman responded as well and said, “Thank you Snoop, she loved the moments you guys had together! ❤️”
Fans of the late Dog the Bounty Hunter star replied as well; one person noted, “I met them both and they were both so welcoming. Beth was a beautiful soul. May her spirit soar high.” Another said, “Rest auntie …. you are a Queen …. much love to the Chapman Family …”
Beth was first diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer in September 2017. She underwent cancer removal surgery and chemotherapy and was cancer-free by December of that year. She maintained that diagnosis for nearly a year, but was rushed to the hospital again in November 2018 and had to undergo emergency surgery to remove a life-threatening blockage in her throat. Not long after that surgery, Beth learned that her cancer had returned and she was receiving treatment for the disease from December 2018 on. Clearly, the TV personality fought hard right until the end.
News of Beth’s death came just four days after she was admitted into the ICU at the Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii, on June 22. She was placed under a medically induced coma and never recovered. “Please say your prayers for Beth right now thank you love you,” Dog, 66, tweeted on Sunday, June 23. Our hearts are with him and the whole Chapman family as they adjust to a world without her.
