DOG the Bounty Hunter is being sued over allegations that he called the Parkland shooter’s brother the R-word slur and filed a false report with the FBI against his former business partner. 

In the lawsuit, filed on Thursday in Virginia and obtained exclusively by The Sun, Michael Donovan the CEO of Unleashed Entertainment alleged that Dog “lied about meeting Zachary Cruz, the Parkland shooter’s brother, and that he falsely asserted that the young man was ‘r****ded.

Zach has been living with Michael and Richard since 2018 according to various reports.

Michael was working with Dog on a canned reality show for Unleashed, however the CEO had alleged in the suit that the reality star was fired over various ethical violations, including using racial slurs and homophobic troupes.

The complaint alleges: “On or about January 30, 2021, Defendant Chapman made a knowingly false report of abuse to Social Services in Virginia, and to Defendant (Jane) Collins, a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.” 

“The subject of his complaint was Plaintiff Zachary Cruz, someone he had only met in passing.” 

In the suit Michael, Richard and Zach allege that “Virginia social services workers and a corrupt county sheriff, working on a false tip from Defendant Duane Chapman, conspired to search the home of Zachary Cruz and his family, arrest Cruz, and place him into a conservatorship.”

The suit also names Dog's daughter Lyssa as a defendant.

The plaintiffs allege that Dog and "his daughter Lyssa continued to pump out innuendo designed to damage Donovan and Moore’s reputation."

The complaint also alleged that during Dog and Unleashed Entertainment’s short-lived work together, that "Plaintiff Donovan became aware of Defendant Chapman’s use of ‘shell companies’ as personal slush funds to avoid the payment of taxes."

The lawsuit stated: "Upon information and belief Defendant Chapman owes millions in taxes that were evaded using the scam. Plaintiff Donovan instructed Chapman that his company Unleashed Entertainment could no longer do business with him if he insisted on using a scheme to evade taxes.   

“Upon information and belief, Defendant Chapman became hyper concerned that his behavior might be reported to authorities after the cancellation of his show 'Dog Unleashed.’”

When contacted about the new lawsuit, a rep for Dog responded: "We have no comment."


Michael and Dog’s feud over the cancellation of the show had been further exacerbated after the CEO filed a lawsuit last week detailing some of behavior that they claimed Dog exhibited during his work with the company.  

The Sun was first to report that Dog was the target of a $1.3million lawsuit accusing him of “racist and homophobic behavior" before and after filming his axed reality show Dog Unleashed. 


The previously filed suit accuses the reality star of breach of contract - and alleges Dog was fired from a canned TV show for racist outbursts and carrying an illegal Taser while filming in Virginia. 

Dog allegedly used the Taser to intimidate his way into someone's home, according to the suit seen by The Sun. 

And a plaintiff in that lawsuit alleges Dog used homophobic language. 

Dog has vehemently denied the allegations. 

He was recently scouring remote areas of southern Florida in the search for Brian Laundrie, 23, the fugitive wanted in connection with the homicide of his fiance Gabby Petito. 

The 22-year-old was found dead last month in Wyoming after disappearing on the couple's cross-country road-trip. 


Dog Unleashed was canceled just weeks before the April 1, 2021 premiere.

In that suit Michael is suing Dog, 68, for defamation.   

The court papers filed on October 5 claim: “Defendant is a disgraced reality TV star who was fired by Plaintiff after his company discovered that the Defendant had used racial epithets to attack Black teenage Black Lives Matter Activists. 

“Plaintiff's investigation into the allegations of racial epithets also uncovered illegal activity.” 

That lawsuit claimed the Dog The Bounty Hunter star “illegally holstered and wore a taser device during filming in Virginia, which is illegal in the Commonwealth considering Chapman has been convicted of a violent crime.” 

Michael claimed in that lawsuit that he viewed court documents from the murder conviction.  

Dog was found guilty of first-degree murder and was sentenced to five years in Texas State Penitentiary - though he only served 18 months before his release. 

He was waiting in the getaway car when his friend shot and killed drug dealer Jerry Oliver over cannabis.

Report: Hunter Biden’s Art Dealer Pictured Wearing Camp David Hat Before Secret Show in SoHo

Hunter Biden’s art dealer Georges Bergès was pictured Thursday wearing a Camp David hat. It is unknown how Bergès obtained the hat or if he traveled to Camp David with the president, who most recently visited the country estate during the collapse of Afghanistan.

The photo of Bergès wearing the presidential hat was posted to Instagram days before Hunter’s latest art show over the weekend by gossip columnist George Wayne, who alleges he introduced Hunter to Bergès.

EXCLUSIVE: Hunter Biden faces fresh cash-for-access questions after his art dealer is snapped wearing Camp David hat

— Daily Mail US (@DailyMail) October 25, 2021

“GB shows up wearing a fabulous cap emblazoned with the Presidential seal and the words Camp David Presidential Retreat 46 all over it,” Wayne wrote. “Say whaaa? Were you at Camp David last weekend with your artist Hunter Biden???!!!”

Wayne’s post seemed to reveal for the first time that Hunter and Bergès were planning a secret art exhibit in SoHo, New York City, this past weekend, where the two were attempting to sell Hunter’s paintings for up to $500,000. At Hunter’s last exhibition in Los Angeles, five paintings worth $75,000 each were reportedly sold to an anonymous buyer.

“When the arbiter conducted further reconnaissance and swanned by your gallery this afternoon there was a gaggle of paparazzi outside?!! And the gallery windows on West Broadway smothered with brown paper?!!,” the social media post continued. “What’s going on at the GBG [Georges Bergès Gallery]?! Is Hunter Biden’s much discussed solo show about to land in Gotham City??!!”

Hunter’s second art show in SoHo was initially reported to be delayed until spring. The secret show in SoHo was ultimately held this past weekend, despite challenges of “legal vetting” of guests willing to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on art.

The president’s son has come under fire for selling his artwork while reportedly maintaining an interest in an entity Skaneateles, which is said to have “access to tens or hundreds of millions of dollars for Chinese and global investments and set up a complicated web of China-based and Cayman Island shell companies and subsidiaries.” Such a financial web could be utilized to launder money around the world, such as from Hunter’s painting ventures, without United States officials’ knowledge.

Hunter’s art dealer, Georges Bergès, has previously boasted his strong ties to businessmen in Communist China, which has concerned many due to the Biden family’s business ventures abroad. Breitbart News reported:

Hunter’s past work as his father served as vice president — striking deals with Chinese officials and raking in tens of thousands of dollars per month serving on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian oligarch-owned oil and gas company, despite having no experience in the energy sector. His father would later brag about threatening to withhold aid from Ukraine unless officials fired the prosecutor conducting a corruption investigation into Burisma.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki has defended Hunter’s art scheme and his contact with potential “anonymous” art buyers as “reasonable, suggesting Hunter “is not involved in the sale or discussions about the sale of his art,” and that Hunter will not be “informed” of “who is purchasing his art.”
