DOG the Bounty Hunter’s daughter Bonnie has shared a message of support to her beloved dad after he was rushed to hospital last night.
Her 66-year-old TV star dad was taken to a Colorado hospital after he felt chest pains but doctors haven’t pinpointed what happened.
Dog was hospitalised over the weekend for a heart emergency, according to TMZ.
The stricken celeb was crushed by the death of his wife this summer, aged just 51, and recently admitted his life has fallen apart since.
Medics are understood to be monitoring the star and are assessing whether he will need surgery.
Today his daughter Bonnie posted a family photograph on Instagram and said: “Love you, pops.”
‘We weren’t prepared’
Beth Chapman died in June of this year after an 18-month battle with throat cancer.
Dog, whose real name is Duane Chapman, opened up about his heartbreak on US TV show People Now last month.
He told of how the couple’s children were coping with the loss, and said he feared the family “will fall apart”.
Shattered Duane said: “Each one copes differently, there is a few that really barely making it.
“We don’t know what to do. We haven’t read, we weren’t prepared.
“I lost my mother first, and when my mum passed away, I’m like, ‘I wish dad would have died first, you know, cause I love my mommy.’
“So I went to them and said, ‘I’m so sorry that I didn’t die first and mum did.’
“And they were like, ‘Yeah dad, why?’
“So I was like, ‘Oh my god, I know what that feels like, I should’ve been the one. The guy goes first.’
“So that’s hard for them.”
We told last month how the grieving star was spotted on a night out with a female pal as he tried to move on from losing his wife.
TRAGIC CANCER STORY
Brave Duane, 66, looked relaxed as he spent the evening with his friend at an Italian restaurant in Los Angeles.
He wore a short-sleeve blue button-down shirt and kept his hair styled in his signature blonde mullet.
The pair were snapped while he waited for his bodyguard/driver to pick them up.
He drove them to a petrol station to grab miscellaneous items while the TV star waited in the car.
Amid his troubles, Duane was also recently targeted in a scam that eyes up wealthy celebs.
The scam began when the 66-year-old’s literary agent, Alan Nevis, received an email claiming to be from the office of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the deputy PM of the UAE.
In the message Sheikh Mansour, who also owns Premier League champions Man City, appeared to be offering Dog £400,000 to give a speech at an convention for small business owners on August 31.
However, they were quick to sniff out the event was bogus and in what cops have described as a new version of the “Nigerian Prince” email of the early 2000s.
Last month, thugs ransacked Duane’s store in Colorado and made off with “thousands of dollars” and hunting gear which belonged to his beloved wife.
Dog posted about the break-in on Twitter and offered a “cash reward” for information relating to the robbery.
