However, the rumor mill started churning when he posted a selfie with longtime family friend Moon Angell. There were reports that Chapman and Angell, his longtime assistant, were dating. Some fans were surprised that Dog was dating so soon after Beth’s death, but many were happy that he was finding happiness again.
People who were not happy? Chapman’s daughters, who were vocal in their disapproval on Twitter.
Lyssa Chapman wrote a number of tweets directly to Angell.
“You’re disgusting woman. Any person who moves in on a man weeks after losing his wife, who you were supposed to be a “friend “ to, Is the lowest scum on the planet-Which for you wasn’t that far of a step down from where you were before. God will get you MARY !!!”
“Let’s not forget how you came to know my family because you were with my BROTHER. NOW TRYING TO FET WITH MY DAD. BARFFFFFFF”
“Let’s not forget my BROTHER PICKED YOU UP IN A BAR ! ?”
It seems a little unfair for Lyssa to be pointing all of her public ire at Angell when it takes two people to be in a relationship.

Cecily Chapman also responded to the rumor, but in a slightly less direct way.
“I’ve been very quiet concerning the circumstances but tbh what kinda “friend” moves into a dead friends house with their husband?! And ACTS LIKE THEY DID NOTHING WRONG? #Narcissist”
However, all of this online anger appears to be for nothing. A source told People that Dog and Angell are just friends, nothing more.
“Moon has been a family friend to Beth and Dog for years. Since Beth’s death, she has stepped in to help Dog in his time of need. There will never be another Beth.”
While Chapman has explained that he would be open to dating again someday, he will never marry.
“I probably will do that, and I told her that. What deal we said is I will never take ‘Beth’ off my chest, I have her name here. And I will never get married. And she said to me, ‘We are human, okay?’ And probably the same thing I’d say to her: ‘I know you’re gonna have a boyfriend, I hope you have 10, but don’t go fricking marry one, and say those words. Don’t you dare do that.’ I would say that, and she did say that to me.”
He joked that his kids don’t like to hear him talk about dating again.
“And I’m trying to tell them, I don’t know I can’t rent one you guys, I don’t know what to say,” he joked of a possible new girlfriend. “But right now, they are like ‘dad!'”
From the way his daughters reacted, heaven help the next woman in Dog’s life.
