The American businesswoman, television personality, former bail bondswoman, and bounty hunter Lyssa Rae Chapman is best known for her role as Dog the Bounty Hunter on A&E Television's Dog the Bounty Hunter, in which she, along with her father Duane "Dog" Chapman and a variety of friends and family track down and capture wanted fugitives.
Lyssa Rae Chapman, the American bounty hunter, also known as Baby Lyssa, was born on June 10, 1987, in Denver, Colorado, U.S.
Until the age of ten, Lyssa was raised by her father, Duane Chapman. Duane had twelve children, including Lyssa, through mixed marriages. Lyssa was the daughter of Duane Chapman's third wife, Lyssa Worthington Greene Brittain. When her parents' marriage fell apart, Lyssa moved in with her mother in a small Alaskan town after the age of ten. Six years later, she started working with her father at the family's bail bonds company, "Da Kine Bail Bonds."
At the age of eighteen, Lyssa Chapman became a bounty hunter just like her father, the famous bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman. For eight years, she also took part in her father's TV show, "Dog the Bounty Hunter, " The show depicted the bounty hunters tracking down and apprehending wanted fugitives. By the time she turned nineteen, she had become a licensed bounty hunter in the state of Colorado. Lyssa has an estimated net worth of $500,000 which she earned by working in her father's TV show and being a famous bondsperson and bounty hunter.
Lyssa Chapman survived a very tough, even horrifying childhood. Her father was a crack addict, and her mother had an alcohol addiction. At the age of fourteen, Lyssa was pregnant for the first time due to what she eventually revealed as sexual abuse. The twenty-four-year-old father of Chapman's daughter was arrested and went to prison for the crime of sexually abusing a minor since Lyssa was only fifteen years old when she delivered her first daughter, Abbie; it was illegal in their state to have sexual relations with a minor under the age of sixteen. Surprisingly, Lyssa didn't press any charges against the father of her daughter but expressed gratitude instead of having been given a daughter.
In 2006, Lyssa suffered a tragic loss when her sister Barbara was involved in a car accident and died from her injuries. Barbara's death affected Lyssa greatly.
At the age of twenty-three, Lyssa was pregnant for the second time and was dating the father of her second daughter, Brahman "Bo" Galanti. Some reported suspicions about the identity of her second daughter's father, even surmising that she was pregnant as a result of a love affair that Lyssa was involved in for one year. However, in February 2009, Lyssa and Galanti were married. They each had one daughter from previous relationships, and together they had their daughter Madalynn. Lyssa's marriage to Galanti seemed happy at first, but unfortunately for Lyssa, her happiness did not last long.
Shortly after the marriage, her husband Galanti began to abuse her and used to be violent with her both in public and private. Lyssa tried to go for counseling to save her marriage instead of turning to her family because she was so frightened by the thought that her father might seek to harm her husband and end up going to jail. When Galanti's behaviors showed no changes, she eventually filed for divorce and ended her marriage to Galanti, which lasted only two years.
According to the most recently available information, Chapman is engaged to Leiana Evensen, with whom she co-owned a tanning salon.
Though Lyssa worked as a bounty hunter for the entirety of her adult life, in 2011, she found herself on the other side of the law as she was arrested in Honolulu, Hawaii. The police arrested Lyssa late one night for causing a public disturbance and harassment. Lyssa claimed to the press that she was drugged when she was arrested.
In 2013, Lyssa released her autobiography, Walking on Eggshells, which depicted her struggle as a kid after being abandoned and treated carelessly by her two divorced parents, both of them addicts. She chronicled her teenage pregnancy, her abusive marriage, the death of her sister, and how she managed to turn all that around and end up having a good relationship with her parents. Lyssa does mention in the book that she still found it challenging to maintain a relationship with her mother due to her drinking problems. However, she reported that her relationship with her father was as good as possible.
In September 2014, Lyssa and her two daughters were involved in a severe car accident in Honolulu, where she lived. Lyssa's black car was destroyed from the front, and all that could be found after the crash was remains and broken pieces. The injuries to the driver and passengers of the car were thankfully minimal.
Lyssa Chapman devoted a good deal of her energy to be a good mother and a protector to her two daughters, saying that she never wanted to let them go through any hell similar to what she encountered in her own life. She affirmed that she would always try to do her best to be there and protect them. Lyssa also mentioned that her book, Walking on Eggshells, was meant to help other women all over the world who might have gone through or might be going through similar miseries as herself. She hoped that her book would help those women feel better and get through their pain and agony with will, courage, and strength. When Lyssa was asked how she managed to get through and stand tall after all that she had been through and was still going through, she replied by stating that her role model through all her trials was God and that she could never have survived her attempts if it wasn't for her relationship with God. Lyssa Chapman is a woman of faith who believes and has always felt that she is loved by God and that, unlike any mortal partnership, God would never fail to back her up, give her strength and faith, and remain forever by her side.
