Internet personality Alana Thompson, better known as “Honey Boo Boo,” rose to fame alongside her mother “Mama” June Shannon after they both appeared on the reality show Toddlers & Tiaras in 2012.
The success of her participation was so great that at just six years old, Alana got her own spin-off series. Here comes Honey Boo Boo, who sterilized with his family. Subsequently, came the spin off Mama June: Road to Redemption in 2021.
In August 2021, the young celebrity appeared on the cover of Teen Vogue. In his interview, he talked about his childhood career and the success he has achieved since then. However, the 16-year-old star admitted that she has had trouble keeping up with the lifestyle that brought her fame, as the public still considers her a “child.”
Unfortunately, being stars as big as “Honey Boo Boo” and “Mama June” implies being exposed to dangers such as drug addiction, bringing with it serious consequences for family stability.
In 2019, June left her family for her troublesome boyfriend, Geno Doak. But before long, both were arrested on drug possession charges. As a result, temporary guardianship of Alana was awarded to June’s eldest daughter, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efird, with the permission of their father, Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson.
However, this week, according to official documents obtained by The Sun, a Georgia state judge finally awarded 22-year-old Lauryn sole custody. In addition, the judge ruled that June, 42, must pay her eldest daughter $800 a month in child support until Alana turns 18.
The information obtained also indicates that the income of the matriarch of the family is not more than 25 thousand dollars per month, varying between her television program and sponsorships. However, because the Show “had not been renewed for a new season” when the papers were filed, the judge ruled that June’s only “stable income” is $1,015 per month disability insurance.
June will be able to visit Alana by arrangement with Lauryn and will be allowed to contact her by phone on a daily basis. Both sides reportedly agreed to the deal. “Mama June” is reportedly trying to rebuild her relationship with her children as she recovers from substance abuse and tries to get her life back on track after secretly marrying her current partner, Justin Stroud. , last March.
