Beth Chapman, the beloved reality star and wife to Duane “Dog” Chapman, recently passed away at the age of 51 from throat cancer. The co-stars of Dog The Bounty Hunter had a beautiful relationship and he is understandably in a tough place after her death. But today, let’s talk about Bath’s first husband, Keith Baltimore and how he feels or doesn’t feel about her passing away.
The History of A Relationship
Beth and Barmore, who was a friend of Duane’s were married for two years between 1991 and 1993 after dating for just 25 days. They even had a daughter named Cecily right before their split.

Duane was reportedly quite unhappy with the union and had a low opinion of Keith in general. In his memoir, You Can Run, But You Can’t Hide, he called Keith “a punk kid” and “a thief with a heroin habit.”
He even said that it “broke his heart” and made him “physically sick” when Beth and his old friend got together and even more so as their mutual friends shared troubling news about their marriage.
Complicated? Think Again
Duane even wrote about having a long-lasting affair with Bath during her marriage to Barmore. “ Beth and I were sleeping together the entire time I was married to Tawny and throughout her marriage to Keith,” he wrote in his book. He even alleged that Beth wanted to spend more and more time with him and was devout in her pursuit of him.
Duane and Beth finally married in 2006 and he adopted Cecily, her daughter from her first marriage.
The Battle and The End
Beth was officially diagnosed with throat cancer in 2017. She and her husband, now living in Hawaii filmed a series called Dog and Beth: The Fight of Their Lives about her disease.
He told reporters, following her death that he “loved her so much.” He even shared some final words— “Beth isn’t dead, she’s sleeping.” He also fell back on his faith during his time of grief. “I hope to god there is a God,” he said. “I hope I’m not just talking to myself. I hope there is a God and if there is, I’m gonna see my honey again. That’s all we can do is hope.”
Keith has released no known statement yet.
