Famous bounty hunter, Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman, is reportedly dealing with some health issues just three months after his wife passed away.

As Dearly previously reported, Chapman’s wife of 13 years, Beth Chapman, passed away on June 26, following a long battle with throat cancer. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight two weeks after Beth’s passing, Chapman revealed that he was still grieving the loss of his wife:

“[With any] new experience that you have, you don’t know how you’re doing because you’ve never experienced it. I have a lot of people who depend on me. All my supervisors said, ‘Dog, it’s time to man up.’ So I’m trying to man up.”

Now, according to multiple reports, the 66-year-old widower is dealing with some heart issues.

As Entertainment Tonight reports, a source close to Chapman and his family said the bounty hunter was “taken to the hospital from his home in Colorado after feeling chest pains.”

The source added that “doctors are currently running further tests on his heart.”

TMZ was the first to report the news of Chapman’s hospitalization. Around 11:30 a.m. on September 16, TMZ reported that Chapman had a “possible heart attack and may require surgery. ”

A later update said that a representative for Chapman told TMZ:

“I can confirm Dog is under doctor’s care and is resting comfortably. Thank you for all of your well wishes – keep ’em coming.”

After losing his wife to cancer, Chapman revealed one of the last conversations he had with Beth before she fell into a coma.

He said:

“The last few moments she said, ‘Come in here right now, in the bathroom.’ I went in and she said, ‘Look at me.’ And I said, ‘Yeah, you’re freaking beautiful baby.’ [And she said,] ‘Look at me, Duane Chapman.’ And I did, I always saw Beth and she said, ‘Please, let me go.’

And I didn’t even make a decision, I almost said, ‘I can’t.’ Before I could say, ‘Alright,’ she couldn’t breathe and I called the ambulance… But every day she talked as if she was not there. ‘Here’s what to do with this, here’s what to do with that. Don’t keep running your mouth. When they ask you a specific question, just answer that.’”

Duane said no matter how much his wife tried to prepare him for her passing, he admitted he could never be truly prepared to live a life without his Beth.

    Praying for you Duane. I know how you must be feeling. My wife of over 40 years went home to be with our Lord Jesus on April 17th, 2 days after her birthday. I know she would not want me to mourn so much that it could and would hurt my health and cause medical problems. I and you will see our loved one again one day. Get some help and talk to people about what you are going thru it will help a lot. Again prayers going to our Lord Jesus for you and your family.

    In Jesus Name,
