Duane “Dog” Chapman’s second daughter, Listen, responded to negative comments from her step-sister and half-sister about him, revealing that they were not invited to him upcoming wedding with Francie Frane.
Lyssa took to Instagram to accuse Cicily and Bonnie Chapman of extinguishing lies after telling TMZ that they were not invited to the wedding. While Lyssa did not comment on whether they were invited to the ceremony on September 2 or not, she rejected the story, they presented that their father does not want them with because they remind him too much of his deceased wife, their mother, Beth Chapman.
“My sister (s) are lying about our father. Do not listen!” Lyssa wrote on Instagram. “For the record, Bonnie and Cicily are loved by our family, and we’re sad that bad people are using them to take revenge on Dad.”
Beth died in 2019 due to throat cancer. Many criticized the former “Dog Bounty Hunterstar for getting on with Frane too soon. Cicily, who is Dogs’ stepdaughter through her 2006 marriage to Beth, and Bonnie, who is his biological daughter with Beth, claimed they looked like his deceased wife and that they did not invite them for weddings is his way of hiding from the fact that he is afraid that Frane will not replace her in his life.
However, Lyssa claims that Bonnie and Cicily are just mouthpieces for dissatisfied ex-business partners to her father. Although she does not name them in her post, her Instagram Story identifies them as Michael Donovan and Richard Moore, who previously worked with Dog Chapman on a new reality show for Unleashed Entertainment, with Donovan as CEO.
However, Taste of country notes that “Dog Unleashed” was canceled before it was even aired, after the company claimed Dog’s on-set behavior deserved firing.
In her post on Monday, Lyssa noted that accusations of racism and homophobia, the situation against her father were false.
“He loves all people. I am a gay woman and my father never embarrassed me. He has welcomed all my partners, both men and women,” she wrote.
She continued: “Everything Bonnie claims has been put in her head by my father’s former business partners who are angry that they could no longer ride his coattails. Dad stopped when he realized they were scammers. They said , that they fired him for saving face and then started caring for two of his daughters in revenge.I think these people who influence my sister are of a cult mentality and my sisters have been indoctrinated.They are used as peasants and disgrace the inheritance of their mothers and the reputation of their fathers into the hands of other people. “
Since Dog’s exit from the Unleashed Entertainment project, Bonnie has joined the network show “The System” and continues to work closely with UnleashedTV, its streaming service.
“The people who watched our shows know who Dog is. And he’s not one of what Bonnie claims,” Lyssa concluded. “Please pray that my sisters be released from all that these criminals are wearing.”
Unleashed Entertainment did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
However, it shared a message on its Instagram Story Monday that apparently referred to Lyssa’s post.
“Ironically, how independent bright young women are called brainwashed because they tell their truth,” the company wrote.
The comments in question from Bonnie and Cicily were provided to TMZ Monday when they revealed they were not invited to the wedding despite their brother, Garry, securing an invitation.
“My only guess or idea would be that he’s just not really on the same path as me and my sister,” Cicily told the outlet. “What I personally see is just that my father has a hard time dealing with that he may not be able to replace my mother and that Bonnie and I get a lot out of my mother and he sees our mother in us.”
“I feel it scares him,” she continued. “Yes, he can move on. Yes, he can get married again – that’s not the problem. I just think he’s too scared we’re reminding him too much of my mother.”
Cicily further noted that, after all, she has no bad will towards Frane.
“She’s a great lady and she’s never done anything to us,” Cicily explained. “So that’s why I feel it’s more of a personal thing with my father to us girls because we’re very similar to my mother and I feel, especially with where our direction is going – Bonnie’s protesting and she’s coming out and she’s activist, and my mother actually got excited about things – and if you knew Beth, you knew she was like that. “
Dog’s representative issued a statement about the daughter’s complaints about not being invited to E! News on Monday.
“We love Bonnie and Cecily very much, just like we do our whole family,” said his rep. “We pray for their health and happiness every day. In addition to this statement, we want to keep all family issues private.”
