These ladies have a lot of criminals in their past
Mama June and Jennifer Lamb seemed like mortal enemies on June’s show Mama June: From Not to Hot. Jennifer took digs at her fiancé’s ex-wife by feeding his child food she wasn’t supposed to have and she also gave her sweets to bring home that June did not want in her house. Jennifer also insulted June’s parenting skills which led to a front-yard screaming match between the two women. As much as they despise each other, they do have something strange in common: The men in their lives are hardened criminals and sexual predators.
TLC was forced to cancel Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo when it came out that June Shannon was dating her former boyfriend, Mark McDaniel—a convicted child molester—who allegedly attacked June’s oldest daughter Anna “Chickadee” Shannon when she was younger.
Anna only found out that she was fathered by a man named David Dunn in the last few years. He was sentenced to years in prison for being a habitual thief. June and David were in their teens when Anna was born.
Second Baby Daddy
Jessica “Chubs” and Lauryn “Pumpkin” were fathered by Michael Anthony Ford. This man was caught on the Dateline NBC show To Catch a Predator in 2005 trying to have sex with a 13-year-old girl. He had to register as a sex offender and was forced to wear an ankle monitor to avoid prison.
But Michael decided to remove his monitor in 2013 which led to him being imprisoned for a long time.
Sugar Bear’s Crimes
Sugar Bear himself, the father of Alana “Honey Boo-Boo” Thompson, was sentenced to five years in prison for robbing campsites and setting fire to a camper in 1998. His jail time didn’t affect June’s love for him then, but she has since come out saying that he was physically and verbally abusive to her during their relationship.
Now that June and her daughters are doing better, Sugar Bear decided to get married to Jennifer Lamb. But she’s no angel either, and likes her men with a criminal past just like June does…
