Nothing like some good old family feuding!!

Duane "Dog" Chapman's sons have left the family business and the reality show, Dog the Bounty Hunter!!

There are some conflicting reports, however, on what exactly went down.

The production company claims that the boy, Duane Lee and Leland, quit the business and have cut ties with their bounty hunting folks, and they have 48 hours to return to the show or they'll be fired.

HOWEVER, another source claims that mom Beth Chapman kicked her kids to the curb because she was seriously peeved that they had started a side business, the apparel company CHAPBROS.

Guess when you work in the bail bond business you have no time to be a supportive mother!!

What do U think happened? Will U be disappointed to see them off the show??

    It is not uncommon for females in the wild to eat their young– this odd specimen looks to have devoured both male offspring.



  2. 2

    thats the reason i watch it mostly!!!!!!!!!!! come back duane lee and leland!!!!



  3. 3

    I hope this isn't true! Leland is my fave one of dogs kids. That sucks!



  4. 4

    VILE WHITE TRASH FAMILY!!

    Only in America could thugs like this be allowed to run around taking the law into their own hands. Clearly theyve been watching way too many macho BS action TV shows!

    Bunch of ugly crims!!!



  5. 5

    I think Beth's a crazy BITCH!! She is NOT their mom(STEP MOM) and she should fuck off. Dog should tell her but "BOOBS OVER BRO'S!" BITCHES!!

    Who gives a shit….Who gives a fuck!

    Who gives a shit…Who gives a fuck!



  8. 8

    DAT SUCKS I REALLY LIKE THAT SHOW :(



  9. 9

    Leland was sexy as shit.



  10. 10

    This show is my guilty pleasure. I even went as Beth Chapman last year for Halloween, with my bf going as Dog. So sick and fantastic! I would definitely miss Duane and Leland. I like the family unit, and was sad when Justin left the show in an earlier season. Make up Chapman family! Stay together!



  11. 11

    Who watches this shit?



  12. 12

    I HATE Beth!! She just a FAT BITCH!! Happy the boys are on thier own.



  13. 13

    I LOVE dog the bounty hunter, Leland is my favorite! It's the best reality show around!



  14. 14

    This shows you how disgusting and greedy that fat bitch Beth really is. Without Leland and Duane Lee, there is NO show! Hear that A&E??? You will lose ratings, fans, money. Why do you give that bitch so much power? Aren't you the ones who can FIRE BETH and NOT THE BOYS???

    That bitch needs to get the boot. GO CHAPBROS!!!!! We love you!!!!!



  15. 15

    There goes the show. No one wants to see Dog hunt alone…if he can even do it.



  16. 16

    Re: Antony – On average 3million people watch the show every week. They watch the show for Leland and Duane Lee Chapman. NOT that bitch, Beth. GO CHABROS!!!! www.chapbros.com to see what all of the feuding is about. so sad.



  17. 17

    If she fired them because they started their own business, that just proves that she's the controlling bitch she makes herself out to be on the show. Leland and Duane Lee are the only reason to watch that show. All Beth and Dog do is sit on their asses and let them do the actual work. If they get fired, I will stop watching the show. BETH IS A CONTROLLING BITCH!!!!! Surprised she didn't fire baby Lyssa for having a baby.



  18. 18

    I believe Beth is the actual owner of DaKine bail bonds, and if that's the case, I guess it's her right to hire and fire, but I can't imagine Dog just standing by and allowing this to happen. There is a huge chunk of this story we're not hearing.



  19. 19

    Well, Beth isn't actually their biological mother, so she probably doesn't car as much about them.



  20. 20

    FIRE BETH SMITH!!!! She isn't even Chapman blood! Nobody wants to watch that fat bitch. We want LELAND AND DUANE LEE ON THE SHOW!!!!! How could she fire them for Chapbros? Why wouldn't she and Dog support their new company? See for yourself - www.chapbros.com There is nothing wrong with it. It's just their way or trying to succeed on their own. They are not bashing their dad or the show. It just doesn't make sense. She is the reason this show will fail. I HATE BETH!



  21. 21

    Re: CarrieDN1 – So true. If you read about Leland and Duane Lee, their real mom is Lafonda NOT Beth. It makes sense that she has no problem throwing them under the bus for money and greed. She is the evil stepmother!



  22. 22

    This is a job for MAury!!!



  23. 23

    Leland was the original owner of the business. How hes getting the boot is beyond me. As far as most people know, theres no contract saying that Leland & his brothers can't start a fashion line…..Beths just being greedy. I used to give her a lot of credit for being in this business, but now I think shes just being a greedy bitch because they wanted to do something on their own .



  24. 24

    It's not just strictly that they created it but they are using bail bondsmem images and images from the show per se. Their images as bail bondsmen in gear bought by Beth is, whether they like it or not, rights to Beth. She and Dog had them on the show, they became famous because of what Dog and Beth do and what Dog and Beth hired them to do. I like them too, but really in the first few seasons which did just as well, Duane Lee was barely there and Leland was barely there because they were running their own offices.



  25. 25

    Beth don't own Dakine she don't own shit!…she even lost her bail license in CO her and Dog both…Dog does not have one in HI either…Leland started Dakine orginally…Beth has been a bitch for years and running the show they needed to grow a damn set years ago and do this not wait till now



  26. 26

    Only reason I watch it is because of the SONS

    DUMB MOVE……………who wants to just see DOG/BETH?

    NOT ME



  27. 27

    first JON and Kate

    NOW THIS

    OMG lol



  28. 28

    I read somewhere (I think it was on the Chapbros website) that Dog's parents actually opened the bail bonds business in Hawaii and that Leland runs one of their offices. I don't think Leland technically owns the business, but I don't think Beth does either. Therefore, I don't think Beth "bought" their gear and I don't think it's a big deal that they're selling shirts where they're wearing bullet-proof vests.
    I also don't see what the big deal is that Leland and Duane Lee have a clothing business, but from what we see on the show, Beth is something of a control freak, maybe she got angry that they didn't give her control of it.
    It's Dog who needs to grow a pair and stand up to Beth. He must realize that without his two sons (who are not Beth's sons by the way, no matter how much she likes to pretend they are) there is NO show. I definitely won't watch it if Leland isn't on it. I will, however, buy one of everything that he is selling on his website. Go Leland! You rock!



  29. 29

    Re: canadianYEAH – yeah, so sad when it's the parents screwing their kids over. Dog needs to grow some balls and kick that wifey of his to the curb. She is tearing the family apart!

  30. Dude! says – reply to this

    Just like American Chopper, Beth is going to find her fat ass on the street without a cash cow to support her. No more shoe shopping Beth!

    Leland and Duane are the ones that make the show exciting!

  31. Dude! says – reply to this


    31

    Oh and aren't parents suppose to support their kids and encourage them to succeed on their own? Beth is such a skank.



  32. 32

    Beth isnt even their mother. Let them do whatever they want to do. They are 99 percent of the show anyway. They are both hot and fun to watch.

    And did you even re-read how you posted this Perez? The production company claims that the BOY, Duane Lee and Leland, ( the boy? really Perez/) that doesnt even make one bit of sense.



  33. 33

    Karma is a bitch and so is Beth. She will get what she deserves. It is amazing how many people hate Beth yet she isn't the one getting fired. It just doesn't make sense. Keep the boys on, kick her off. Go CHAPBROS!!!!



  34. 34

    A&E-grow some balls! You are just covering your ass by saying the boys quit because you know you f#### up! If you're smart-you'll give Duane Lee and Leland their own show-and watch them blow DTBH away!! Beth is firing the boys strictly because she wants the profits from their business. She thinks she's entitled to everything and wants to dip her hand in this cookie jar as well! Duane Lee and Leland ARE the show! Beth gets camera time because she controls the show, and because we all think she looks like a hooker with her her huge ass boobs and her obnoxious hair/nails/outfits!! She can't even run!! How in the hell are her and Dog going to catch anyone!



  35. 35

    Re: Dude! – She's not their real mother. She just likes to pretend she is because it makes her look like a good person. It's funny that when they travel to Colorado, they don't stay in that big mansion that Dog and Beth have. That definitely speaks volumes, don't you think?



  36. 36

    Damn it…Leland is hot!! who am i supposed to look at now? Figures all the good shows are biting it.



  37. 37

    GOD FORBID THE CHILDREN GO OFF AND TRY TO ESTABLISH THEMSELVES IN SOMETHING AND CREATE A BRAND TO KEEP MAKING MONEY OFF OF FOR THEIR CHILDREN AND CHILDREN'S CHILDREN ! FUCK YOU BETH YOU HEAR ME YOU ARE AN IGNORANT PIECE OF SHIT !

    Re: Moonflower26

    I know Beth is their step mom but you know what, I have a step son and I support him 100% because we ARE family, even if not by blood. I would be excited for my kids if they parlayed something we did together into something else. That's called parental pride.



  39. 39

    Re: Dude! – I totally get that some step parents support their step kids. I just don't think Beth does. I didn't mean any disrespect to you.

  40. Dude! says – reply to this

    Re: Moonflower26

    None taken :D I think even if they were her blood, she would still be a selfish cow.



  41. 41

    who cares



  42. 42

    This is the only show worthwhile watching on tv all the negitive comments are from the drug addicts and criminals -its a great show and it better not go off the air like past great shows x-files and seinfield-well i like all the brothers - i can understand beth all money should be split because it was dog and beth that had the original bail bond offices and did all the foundation so all extra business should be like chapmen clothes line not just chapmen brothers. anyway i wish it was on another night i would watch it - the hunt is always exciting - beth is awesome she is real women and not a fake bitch . Dog is hot - at any age they just got the look cant say enough about the show just purely exciting and entertaining - best on tv - the guys will be back they need the cash - there kids need parents with jobs- i need this show start making new ones travel shows different shows like drug addicts in padadise lets say carribean islands like turks and caicos and they can stay in a awesome house



  43. 43

    I dont care what anyone says. I love Beth, Im sure there's gotta be a lot more to this story than what Mario can report.



  44. 44

    TO much hate where's the love - this show rocks even if the boys want to leave they can get some young hot dudes for the girls to watch - but dog and beth cant be replaced - all these other comments are from peope that mad they dont have and excitig life like dog (total) role model for children and beth who comunicatees well with these people who need to become better citizeens and contribute the usa not just take number one fan



  45. 45

    all family business fight - it will work out
    dogs best fan
    ps - stop the bad language beth is great she is good business person & is entertaining to watch . Beth i hope you see this message dont let these goof balls get to you they all have there own agendas - just like the communist demacrates in washington trying to destroy are great american god loving christian based godloving forefathers . keep taking the trash out we need you - america needs you -true blue red white and blue .



  46. 46

    has anyone thought about the fact that this may be just a RUMOR. no one has officially announced this and the boys have said several times that they will not comment on the RUMORS. they even said do not believe everything you read on the internet. so until one of them comes forward and says this is true i would not take it too seriously



  47. 47

    Re: Letolas – I like the way you think you have a good head on your shoulders you must be a republican like me oh well i just wanted to tell you i am glad you posted



  48. 48

    Re: nikki082107

    ok lets pray - this is the only show iwatch - i look forward to it



  49. 49

    Re: nikki082107 – Yes, but they're also not denying it. They said they couldn't comment due to legal reasons, which means there's probably something amiss.



  50. 50

    Hes trash and so is his family.



  51. 51

    I don't care if this show is trashy it's HILARIOUS!!!!! Leland and Duane Lee make the show!!!!! COME BACK!!!

  52. @v@ says – reply to this


    52

    The kids also want to serve their own agenda and life vision and not just Dog and Beth's vision; and that's normal for young adults. It's a tough one, but maybe they need to hire some extra hunters so the kids can fulfill themselves and leave the set to do their own thing now and then, but come on enough to support themselves while they try to fashion their own lives. They need wings and a blessing, not a padlock on the door.



  53. 53

    I will be disapointed if they are no longer on the show. Both are super-cute expecially Duane Lee! Yummy boys~



  54. 54

    How the fuck can you be an ex criminal and be allowed to go after criminals?Trash pure and simple



  55. 55

    OMG I loooove Leland! He's one sexy bitch! I have to say if they arent on the show anymore I probably will not watch. Lelands the only reason I watch! Now what would I look at Beths boobs???? dont think so



  56. 56

    It won't be the same



  57. 57

    Lets face it folks.. If it wasnt for Dog and Beth, Leland and Duane Lee wouldnt be where they are today! End of subject!

  58. kay d says – reply to this


    58

    I only watch for Leland. Duane Lee seems nice, but Leland is HOT! Too bad Beth is such a bitch. She's always been like that with them.



  59. 59

    She's the STEPmother — will not be same without them — like them better than big boobs and mullet man



  60. 60

    noo I will not watch the show without Leland!!



  61. 61

    You people will believe anything!!! Don't you know they are just creating some controversy to get the ChapBros name out there….its obviously working…I bet half of yall already went to the website…They aren't stupid!!! Not only will you be looking out for ChapBros..you will be tuning into the show to see what's going on….brilliant move Chapmans…



  62. 62

    Re: ciara4 – your crazy and totally dilusional



  63. 63

    :( sad.



  64. 64

    I've known Duane, Duane Lee, and Leland all their lives and I am family. I'm suprised Duane Lee and Leland have been able to put up with that controll freak Beth AKA "Alice Barremore" as long as they have. I am embarrassed for Duane to have to call her his wife. They ought to rename the show Beth (Alice) and her puppets. Duane, you used to be my hero. WHAT HAPPENED???? Oh yea, "Beth Happens"!



  65. 65

    U know wat i am kind of sick and tired of beth picking on the boys cause in numerous shows that is wat she has done this and i cant stand it so u know what do wat ur heart tells u boys cause i am getting sick of this



  66. 66

    Re: mrs_Skarsgard – u are so right there are so many people that watch this just because of duane lee and leland



  67. 67

    Re: MindyD – u are wrong dog owns it with her and they are forgetting that they are losing there office in kona that LELAND owns. Dog needs to take the boys side for once and say to beth u get rid of them and push them away u are going to lose me to



  68. 68

    Re: An HONEST man – who r u



  69. 69

    i'm SO not ready to believe this is all true. i love the chapman family. i admire them all for the good they do. they treat everybody with respect and kindness and try to help all their clients. beth is a great lady and i refuse to believe these claims against her. she loves everybody in that family equally. i hope that this can all be resolved. i'd hate to see anybody leave the show.



  70. 70

    Chapbros? Honestly, It sounds like a store for Leather Queens.
    I look forward to the Lay-bor Day sale, LOL



  71. 71

    Duh, she is NOT THEIR MOTHER, Perez! Dog and she haven't been married for all that long of a time.



  72. 72

    Who cares… just show shots of the daughter & I'll be happy.



  73. 73

    How about we fire Beth and bring Tim back
