Beth Chapman was only 51 when she died last year after battling cancer for years and initially was adamant she’d beat the diease.
Wearing sunglasses after undergoing eye surgery, Dog told Patricia: “As you know, Beth is in heaven, this week is a year and she wanted to show the public that she was going to beat the cancer.
“And of course she didn’t and as she knew she wasn’t, I never admitted that.
“She woke me up one night and told me ‘daddy, I’m going to die’ and I said, ‘no you’re not’.”

He went on to say: “So she had accepted it and I would not.”
Beth starred with her husband on the A&E reality series Dog the Bounty Hunter, which ran from 2004 to 2012.
Beth was first diagnosed with stage two throat cancer in November 2017 and it later worsened to stage four.
She passed away in June of 2019.
Dog sadly confirmed her passing on Twitter, writing “it’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain.”

“Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.”
A father of 12, Dog has been married five times and welcomed daughter Lyssa with his third wife, Lyssa Rae Brittain, to whom he was married from 1982 to 1991.
He’s now engaged to fiance Francie Frane, and they plan on getting hitched once large gatherings are allowed again amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The couple met months ago through mutual friends and Francie informed Dog that her husband Bob had died of cancer several months before Beth’s death.

Dog told The Sun: “It’s going really good. It’s a God relationship because it’s just like a miracle. It’s a miracle how we met and it’s a miracle how great we’re getting along.
“There will never be another Mrs. Dog but it looks like there will be a final Mrs. Chapman.”
