Dog the Bounty Hunter is selling hoodies online in memory of his late wife Beth Chapman.
According to his online store, the hoodies are a limited print and sell for $55. They show a photo of Chapman, as well as her name and the years of her life – 1967-2019 – on the back.
Fan Michelle Anne took to Twitter to express why she bought the memorial hoodie and why she was happy to receive it. “Definitely made me a little sad, not going to lie, and made me miss her,” Michelle writes. “I will wear this with pride and love.”
Beth Chapman died in June 2019 from throat cancer-related complications. She was a co-star with her husband, Duane “Dog” Chapman on reality television shows for several years, including A&E’s “Dog the Bounty Hunter” among others.
Chapman would have celebrated her 53rd birthday on Oct. 29, 2020. On that day, Dog took to social media to share how he felt. “You are celebrating this day with Jesus and all his angels that’s the only thing that gets us through without you,” he wrote. “Happy birthday Beth.”
In May 2020, The U.S. Sun reported that Dog was planning to marry girlfriend Francie Fan. Dog also shared the report on Twitter.
The couple reportedly got engaged at the home they were sharing in Colorado. “I wasn’t expecting it at all,” Francie reportedly said of Dog’s proposal. “I think I had gone to pick up some food and then when I came back he had all the lights turned down with just a few lights on and a bunch of candles lit,” The U.S. Sun reported.
Dog then proposed to Francie, which she accepted. “Who can say to no to that?” Francie, who also previously lost her spouse, said. “It was wonderful.”
