HONOLULU (KKTV) - Reality TV star Beth Chapman has passed away after a fight with cancer, her husband Duane "Dog" Chapman confirmed through a tweet.

Beth Chapman battled throat cancer for years, even undergoing a successful surgery in 2017. Last year, she was told her cancer had returned.

Over the weekend, she was admitted to the ICU at the Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu. Her family announced she had been placed in a medically-induced coma and told fans they were thankful for their prayers "throughout Beth’s battle with cancer."

The Chapman family is known for their bounty hunting and bail bonds business, which was featured on the hit A&E show, “Dog the Bounty Hunter.” The series took place in Hawaii and in Colorado, where Duane Chapman is from and the couple still owns a home.
