Dog the Bounty Hunter was sued for failing to pay $100,000 in house payments despite mounting debt
The famous bounty hunter – real name Duane Chapman – was reportedly being sued for failing to make monthly payments on a home he bought with his late wife Beth in 2015
More heartache has struck Dog the Bounty Hunter after he was reportedly sued over $100,000 in house debt.
TV star, real name Duane Chapman, was devastated when his wife died of cancer last year.
He was said to have been involved in a feud with his family after becoming engaged to Beth’s friend Moon Angell, who was a bridesmaid when Beth and Dog tied the knot in 2006.
It is also said that Moon previously had a relationship with one of Dog’s sons.
Now there’s more heartache for the bounty hunter, with reports that Dog is being sued for allegedly defaulting on his house payments.
In court documents obtained by The Sun, Duane, 67, and his late wife Beth, who tragically lost her battle with throat cancer in 2019, were reportedly sued on Dec. 26, 2018 for failing to make home repayments.
The legendary TV couple are believed to have failed to pay back the $2,240,000 Hawaiian mansion they got from Karen and Craig Mills in 2015.
However, the publication reported that the former property owners were upset after the Chapmans defaulted on payments.
The Sun claimed official court documents read: “On November 27, 2018, an outstanding balance of $109,328.69 was due for unpaid monthly utility payments and reimbursements, property taxes and insurance premiums.”
Plaintiffs then alleged that Dog and Beth “failed and refused to pay the amounts due” before refusing to leave the property.
After the court was notified of Beth’s death in June 2019, a settlement conference was held last week on February 10, but it was believed no settlement was reached.
The Sun claimed Duane is now set to be discontinued on March 13, 2020.
This isn’t the first reported concern about the bounty hunter’s mounting debt and financial woes following the death of his wife.
Just last week, allegations were made that Beth’s estate was being sued for unpaid credit card bills, and Hawaiian Airlines World Elite MasterCard is seeking $73,860.55 on Jan. 27.
A second claim was filed on February 11 for another account for $1,078.78.
The debt comes not long after Dog admitted he’s “broke” and at risk of losing his home in Colorado.
Dog hopes to turn his financial fortunes around by chasing down a Hawaii fugitive whose bail is $1.5 million.
Dog has been having a rough time lately, but it was reported that he reconciled with his family after his girlfriend Moon moved out of his home.
Duane was devastated after Beth lost her battle with throat cancer in Summer in June.
The pair starred together in their own reality show called Dog the Bounty Hunter.
They married in 2006 and had two children together, Bonnie and Garry.
Duane has 13 children from multiple previous marriages and also adopted Beth’s daughter, Cecily.
