It’s on! Mama June Shannon is gearing up for an ugly custody battle with Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson. After accusing her ex of emotional and verbal abuse during their relationship, the reality TV mom is fighting tooth and nail to make sure daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson will have no contact with the reality TV dad.
Mama June Shannon has gone full mama bear!
The 38-year-old reality star is not backing down in her child custody battle with ex-boyfriend Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson. In a sneak peek for an upcoming episode of WE tv’s Mama June: From Not to Hot, the mother of four goes head to head in a war of words with her baby daddy.
During a tense mediation with Sugar Bear, 46, Mama June lashes out at her ex and accuses him of not spending enough time with their biological daughter, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson.
“They don’t talk,” she alleges. “It’s so sporadic that it’s kind of…it’s crazy.”
However, Sugar Bear counters in a separate confession that it’s Mama June’s fault that he doesn’t have a good relationship with his 12-year-old daughter. After all, he argues, it’s his former girlfriend that “doesn’t want to pick up the d**n phone” when he calls to speak with their child.
“I’d like to kinda see if we could get on the same page and see if I could get some regular unsupervised visitation to see how that goes,” he tells the mediator in charge of overseeing the custody battle.
