Dog the Bounty Hunter suffers 'heart emergency,' might need surgery

Doctors are still trying to figure out the true cause and if it will require surgery.

In the meantime, while dealing with all that heartbreak, he's been making the rounds to promote a new reality show, "Dog's Most Wanted", which he had filmed with his late wife.

According to new reports, Dog the Bounty Hunter was taken to the hospital due to a health scare, only months after the passing of his beloved wife, Beth Chapman.

An official response from a member of Dog's Management Team confirms that Dog is under doctor's care and is resting comfortably.

Chapman's wife Beth died of complications from throat cancer on June 26. Doctors are still performing tests to identify the true cause of the heart issue. Apparently, the reality TV star suffered a "heart emergency" and might even need to undergo surgery to fix it!

More interesting is that this habitable-zone exoplanet has the right temperature to house liquid water on its surface. The exoplanet , named K2-18b, is orbiting a red dwarf star 110 light-years away from Earth in the Leo constellation.


"Not only did the thieves take thousands of dollars of clothing, these criminals took priceless personal belongings of our beloved Beth, including tributes to her kindly left by our unbelievable fans", the Chapman family told ET in a statement. He also almost fell victim to a $430k check scam recently.

Last week, during an episode of Dax Shepard's podcast Armchair Expert, Chapman revealed how he's been coping since Beth's death.

"I googled it", Chapman responded. Google says you get smarter when you're forced to deal with it.

"I haven't gotten past the place where I'm [not] putting a pillow where she was and covering it up", he told ET's Kevin Frazier during an intimate sit-down at his Colorado home. "I used to sneak up on her ... and I did and she goes, 'Big Daddy, what took you so long?' and started crying".

All of us at DYR are praying for Dog to pull through and get better soon.
