Dog The Bounty Hunter’s wife Beth Chapman receives devastating news as throat cancer returns

Dog The Bounty Hunter has admitted his wife is "not good" after doctors gave her the devastating news that her throat cancer has returned.

The TV star – real name Duane Chapman – looked downcast and upset as he left Mr Chow restaurant in LA’s Beverly Hills a day after it was revealed Beth Chapman’s cancer is back.

"Listen, I appreciate the question and please say a prayer, she’s not doing good," he told the cameras.

His adult daughter Lyssa Chapman then told the media: "We really appreciate the prayers of our fans and we appreciate the support of our fans.

"We’re all so devastated, we love our mommy so much. We got such an amazing outpour from our fans and we really appreciate it. Poor daddy."

Beth, 51, underwent emergency surgery earlier this week to have a mass in her throat removed.

She’d last had a brush with cancer in 2017, but seemed to be doing well after a malignant tumour was cut out of her neck.

Dog told Us Weekly that she’ll be having a second biopsy next week after doctors discovered "something in her lung, which may also be cancerous".

"She had a lump in her throat twice the size of last time, and they performed an emergency surgery yesterday," he went on.

"They cut a hole in her throat so she can breathe; she can still talk."

Despite the trauma of the situation, Dog said Beth is "incredibly strong" and "doing her best".

Duane and Beth first met in the 1990s and dated on and off for years before getting married in 2006.

They have two children together – Bonnie and Garry – and are step-parents to each other’s kids from previous relationships.

Beth has since shared a picture of herself in her hospital bed cuddling up to her husband.

"Another bend in the road yet not the end of the road," she captioned it.
