Dog the Bounty Hunter has brushed off claims he’s dating his son’s ex, just months after his wife Beth Chapman died from throat cancer.
Reality star Dog – real name Duane Chapman – has been accused of moving Beth’s former assistant Moon Angell in with him in the wake of his wife’s death last June.
Taking to Twitter after her father thanked Moon in an Instagram post, Lyssa blasted: “If someone who met your family by dating your brother, tried to date your father after your stepmom died what would you do?
“If you went to your mothers closet and saw she moved all her clothes and replaced them with her own, what would you do? #ItsNotWhenOrWhyItsWho.”
She added: “My dad is a GROWN A** MAN. His money. His dynasty. But you can guarantee that my name is not going down in history as a person who supported this.”
Responding to one fan who carefully pointed out it wasn’t an issue that Dog was moving on, Lyssa tartly responded: “It’s not when or why it’s who.”
She went on: “Happiness is granted to all, and all I wish is happiness for my family. When a person who has ill intentions, that my mother specifically warned me about before her passing tries to enter, the war is on. The devil ALWAYS goes for the weakest link. Not today satan.”
In tweets that have since been deleted, Lyssa then lashed out directly at Moon.
“You’re disgusting woman,” she flamed.
“Any person who moves in on a man weeks after losing his wife, who you were supposed to be a ‘friend’ to, is the lowest scum on the planet
“Which for you wasn’t that far of a step down from where you were before. God will get you MARY!”
However, a source close to the family denies any romantic entanglement between Duane and Moon.
“Moon has been a family friend to Beth and Dog for years,” an insider told People magazine.
“Since Beth’s death, she has stepped in to help Dog in his time of need. There will never be another Beth.”
It comes after Dog admitted on his TV show that he had struggled with suicidal thoughts in the wake of Beth’s death.
“I just hope that I don’t live very much longer without her,” he said in a November episode of Dog’s Most Wanted.
He has also ruled out ever marrying again, despite Beth giving her blessing before she died.
“What deal we said is I will never take ‘Beth’ off my chest, I have her name here. And I will never get married,” he explained last year.
“And she said to me, ‘We are human, okay?’ And probably the same thing I’d say to her: ‘I know you’re gonna have a boyfriend, I hope you have 10, but don’t go fricking marry one, and say those words.”
He added: “Don’t you dare do that.’ I would say that, and she did say that to me.”
