Dog The Bounty Hunter is ready to date again, but his family is worried someone close to the reality star might be trying to take advantage of his loneliness.
In an interview with Radar Online, the 66-year-old said he’s been “very lonely” in the months since his wife Beth Chapman lost her battle to cancer on June 26, 2019. However, Dog (real name Duane Chapman) wants fans to know he’s not lonely enough to go after his late love’s longtime assistant, Moon Angell.
Despite the rumors that the two are romantically involved, the Dog’s Most Wanted star insisted that Moon, who worked as Beth’s administrative for over 20 years, is just a friend who’s been helping him get through the death of his wife.
He told the outlet:
“She has just been so good to me. I’ll get really emotional and find myself getting into a dark hole and she will tell me to suck it up. So it’s been good having her by my side.”
But Daune’s daughter, Lyssa Chapman, apparently thinks Moon is spending a bit too much time by her dad’s side, if you know what we mean — and she wants the family employee to know she’s onto her.
On Monday, Lyssa took to Twitter to publicly call the woman out, 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.”
Wait. For real?
As fans know, this isn’t the first time Lyssa’s accused Moon of having ulterior motives with her father. She wrote in a since-deleted tweet:
“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 !!!”
Lyssa’s not the only family member concerned, either.
Sources close to the family told the outlet that other members are skeptical of Moon’s intentions and claim she was “always scheming to get with Dog and the moment Beth died, she started to worm her way in on him.”
While Lyssa seeks out divine retribution against Moon, Dog seems to be ready to seek out a new romantic partner. He told Radar:
“I’m very lonely. Beth [and I] talked about death and I’d say, ‘you know Beth, I’ll never get married and I’ll never have a girlfriend again.’ She’s like ‘shut up. You will too. You need a woman beside you.’”
Choking up, he continued:
“I’m the kind of guy that has to have a woman around me. There will never another Mrs. Dog. But I have to find a way to move on. I’m so lonely right now. I’m just really lonely.”
Let’s hope he can find a woman who’s not on the family payroll!
