Dog the Bounty Hunter’s daughter teased there will be “big news” about the star being sued for “racist and homophobic behavior.”
“I am hoping tomorrow I will be able to share some big news with you guys,” Lyssa Chapman, daughter of reality TV star Duane Chapman said on Twitter. “Having to stay tight-lipped for now … [and] trust the process.”
BL previously reported the lawsuit is worth up to $1.3 million. It came after Duane was dismissed from his television show “Dog Unleashed” for alleged racial outbursts. He is also accused of carrying an illegal taser while filming in Virginia, and using the electroshock weapon to force his way into someone’s home.
Unleashed Entertainment confirmed “Dog Unleashed” was cancelled just weeks before it was scheduled to air on April 1.
“Actions taken by Mr. Chapman during the show’s production breach contractual agreements,” President and CEO Michael Donovan said at the time.
Dog vigorously denies the allegations.
“Dog’s brief association with Mike Donovan was ill advised from the start,” a representative previously told The Sun. “Mike, a felon with multiple active fraud investigations into his company Libre by Nexus from several state attorneys general, is attempting to tarnish Dog’s image in the public eye.”
“Everything about this lawsuit is false, the claims are legally untenable, and it will be vigorously defended,” the representative added.
