David Robinson, who starred with bounty hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman in the 2019 television series “Dog’s Most Wanted,” died Wednesday. He was 50.
Robinson’s ex-wife, Rainy Robinson, who also starred in the series, confirmed the actor’s death to People. No cause was given.
“It’s sad,” Rainy Robinson told People. “They are going to do an autopsy because he was so young. He just literally turned 50.
“He had the best sense of humor. Just a kind-hearted man. A sweet guy. He was a road racer so he loved those fast motorcycles. He would do 200 mph. I am sure he is a little disappointed that he instantly died. Fell out of a chair. I am sure he would have much rather be going 250 miles around Laguna racetrack.”
Rainy Robinson told TMZ that David Robinson was on a Zoom call on Wednesday when he had what she described as a medical emergency. She did not provide further details.
“David was very healthy and was on a work call in our dining room when he collapsed,” she wrote. “Life-saving maneuvers were attempted and paramedics were called. David died in my arms.”
“I’m shocked and saddened by the sudden loss of my right-hand man David Robinson,” Chapman tweeted Thursday evening. “Rest in peace.”
