Beth Chapman was hospitalised at the weekend and had been placed in a medically induced-coma after experiencing “difficulty breathing” while battling stage four lung cancer.
Her husband, Dog The Bounty Hunter, confirmed she had died today in a heartbreaking message on Twitter.
He wrote: “It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.”
Beth’s daughter, who she shares with ‘Dog’ Duane Chapman, posted a tribute to her mother on Instagram as she uploaded a bedside picture of their hands intertwined.
“So thankful to call you my mother,” she captioned the post. “Rest In Peace, mom. I love you so much.”
Tributes flooded in for Beth on Twitter after Dog announced the devastating news.
One person wrote on Twitter: “So sorry for your loss! May God give you the strength you and your Family needs to make it thru this difficult time!#BethChapman R.I.P.”
Another person commented: “Dog and all Chapmans, you have my sincerest condolences. God needed an angel, and he picked a great one this morning.”
A third said: “Oh no!!! Am so sorry for your loss, Dog. Keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.”
Beth was first diagnosed with throat cancer in September in 2017 and two months later, she announced it had been removed.
Unfortunately, it soon returned and spread to her lungs and in a recent post, Beth alluded to having stopped chemotherapy.
She told her fans: “Chemotherapy is not my bag, people. Sorry, that’s not for me. So for me, this is the ultimate test of faith. This is my ultimate lesson.”
In December, Dog revealed Beth’s cancer had returned and explained it had become “incurable”.
Speaking to InTouch Weekly, he said: “I have to keep faith, I am the leader of the family.
“She thinks she is, but I am. I have to keep it where I don’t have any doubts and keep everything positive.”
He added: “I love my honey so much, I don’t know what I’m gonna do.”
The couple tied the knot in Hawaii in 2006, 30 years after their first met.
They became a TV hit as they showed viewers the world of bounty hunting, with Dog at the helm, which showed them arresting people who broke the terms of their bail agreements.
The show was first picked up in August 2004 and went on until May 2012.
