Bonnie (biological daughter of Duane and the late Beth Chapman) and sister Cecily (Duane's step-daughter) didn’t cop an invite because they felt they looked too much like their late mother — who tragically died in 2019 after a long battle with throat cancer.

Then, Bonnie alleged that her support for Black Lives Matter and racial equality widened the rift, as she said her famous dad is known for hurling racist and homophobic remarks around, which she strongly disapproves of.

The 22-year-old brunette beauty detailed that her dad changed drastically after Beth died. “My dad ran away from the person she inspired him to be,” she wrote in a statement posted via Instagram on Tuesday, August 24.

Bonnie stated that it was her mom who was able to keep Duane “focused on his career” as a bail bondsman and reality TV personality. “She always kept him in line,” she added.

Family troubles plagued the Chapmans for years, as Bonnie claimed the 68-year-old bounty hunter was emotionally and verbally abusive to her starting from a young age.

“As a child, I was always silenced by him, threatened with physical violence,” she explained. "I will no longer back down. I stand for what I believe in firmly and I think my mother deserves the honor.”

“My father has dishonored my mother in countless ways since her passing,” she continued, by noting he “associated himself with people like right-wing megachurch pastor Greg Locke” who “spews hate toward LGBTQ people almost constantly” and that is the polar opposite of what she believes in.
