AceShowbiz - Dog the Bounty Hunter a.k.a. Duane Chapman sparked dating rumors, six weeks after his wife Beth Chapman's death. The "Dog's Most Wanted" star was spotted at dinner with a mystery woman at an Italian restaurant in Los Angeles on Saturday, August 10.
The 66-year-old reality TV star wore a blue short-sleeve button down shirt as he sat outside with the brunette lady. He then put on a black blazer as they waited for his driver to pick them up. He also sported sunglasses which he put over his forehead.
His female companion, meanwhile, rocked a black-and-white chevron-print dress with a pair of silver stilettos and carried a matching silver handbag bag. They were seen laughing together, though not showing any PDA, while waiting for their car.
Once they got on the car, they stopped by a gas station, where Dog's bodyguard and his female companion got out for supplies, while Dog waited in the car. They later headed to Dog's hotel in Hollywood, where the mystery woman appears to have spent the night, according to Daily Mail.
However, The Blast has begged to differ. Denying the dating rumors, the site reports that the mystery lady whom Dog was spotted with was a crew member in hair department of his VH1 reality series "Dog's Most Wanted". It's also claimed that their night out was far from a date as they were joined by eight other crew members of the reality show. The woman, furthermore, is reported to be a longtime friend of Dog and Beth's.
Dog announced Beth's death on June 26 following her battle with cancer. Earlier this month, he was devastated by a robbery at a store he and his late wife owned. The thieves took a lot of Beth's belongings, including her taser that holds a special value to Dog.
"Cops have been here trying to see who was inside the building, when usually it's only open during the day. We've got a list, a lot of stuff is missing," Dog told reporters at a press conference following the robbery. "I had a lot of Beth's bounty gear here, and all that's gone. Some of her personal stuff was here, all of that is gone."
