Dog the Bounty Hunter’s daughter Bonnie Chapman has accused her famous father of being “racist and homophobic”- and claimed he cheated on her late mother Beth while she was battling cancer.
Bonnie, 22, made the allegations in a scathing Instagram statement after The Sun exclusively reported she and sister Cecily, 28, were not invited to their dad’s upcoming wedding to his fiancee Francie Frane, 51.
Bonnie claimed that Francie confirmed in a text that she was not invited to the wedding because she participated in social justice and BLM protests for Unleashed Entertainment TV show The System after Dog was “fired” by the streaming platform and his series Unleashed was canceled.
Bonnie said on August 24: “My father was fired by the platform for using racial and homophobic epithets towards my fellow cast members on the show, which is about social justice advocacy and protesting violence and racial bias by police.
“I have expressed time and time again my ever-growing disappointment in my father’s progression into his old racist ways.
“I had forgiven my father after my mother’s death for countless actions that I shouldn’t have.
“He would cheat on my mom all the time and I hated him every time he did it but I forgave him because I wanted a relationship with my dad.”
In response to Bonnie’s statement, Dog told The Sun: “Bonnie’s allegations are false and a misguided attempt to derail our wedding.”
This is not the first time Dog has been accused of making racist statements.
His show was pulled in 2007 after it emerged he had used a racial slur in a recorded conversation.
Dog has also previously admitted being unfaithful to Beth.
Bonnie continued: “My mother was a shining light in the void, I can no longer watch someone diminish her light with his hatred.
“I can no longer sit and be quiet about these things. My mother was a true leader and believe it or not, she kept my dad focused on his career.
“We all know of his missteps, but my mom always stood by him. She also kept him in line.
“My mom was loyal and she was fiercely protective of her family. She loved my father and did her best to make him the best man.
Bonnie then accused her father of cheating on her mother while she was suffering from late-stage cancer.
“When she was sick in the hospital, he began to have an affair with a friend of my mom’s.”
‘HE HAS ONLY HIMSELF TO BLAME’
Then Bonnie made allegations about her father and his fiancee.
She said: “In December of 2020 Francie told me she had COVID-19 but that she slept with my father anyway because God told her to.”
“If my dad in his new wife wants to travel to right wing churches, attacking gay people and advancing Qanon theories, he can certainly do that but I’m not going to stand by the memory and legacy of my mother.
“I said before that I really didn’t know why I wasn’t invited to my dad’s wedding and while I knew he was mad about being fired, he only has himself to blame.
I thought my dad would be a man enough to put family first, but it appears that man died with my mother.”
In a statement, Dog continued: “Sadly, Bonnie and Cecily have been groomed by disgruntled former associates with multiple felonies who want revenge at any cost and are attempting to tarnish my reputation.
“Please pray for Bonnie and Cecily to be released from whatever hold these people have on them. We love them and pray for them everyday.
“Despite the sadness we feel at this rift in our family, Francie and I are looking forward to celebrating our wedding next week with the rest of our family and close friends.”
