The new season of Mama June: From Not to Hot has nothing on June Shannon‘s real life drama. Fans are screaming for Sugar Bear to take custody of Honey Boo Boo after the recent crack cocaine bust made headlines. So, will Mike Thompson move to take Alana Thompson away from her mother June over the drug allegations? And will her WE tv reality show survive this real-life scandal?
Mama June From Not to Hot: Sugar Bear Fought for Honey Boo Boo Before
If Mike Thompson (AKA Sugar Bear) files a custody case against June Shannon, it won’t be the first time they fought over Alana Thompson (AKA Honey Boo Boo). The ex-lovers wrapped a nasty custody battle last year where she tried to knock Sugar Bear completely out of his daughter’s life. That failed and she continues to have her on Mama June: From Not to Hot.
The last time that Mike and June fought over Alana, it centered on her allegedly dating Mark McDaniel once again. McDaniel was convicted of molesting June Shannon’s older girls, as reported by TMZ. After serving many years in prison, upon his release, she was spotted out with him, and Honey Boo Boo was photographed with them. That was reportedly the trigger for the last custody case.
#MamaJune drug arrest was serious because cops say she admitted the white powder they found was crack cocaine, & she was also caught with a needle and a pipe. Check out the audio of a conversation between Mama June and the tow truck driver after she was released.#Lovelyti2002 pic.twitter.com/b7GexmW0uK

Mama June Lost Last TV Show Over Molestation Case – Will WE tv Cancel Her Too?
TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo when word spread that June Shannon reunited with convicted molester Mark McDaniel. So, now fans wants to know two things. First, will Sugar Bear file a custody case over the crack cocaine allegations. Second, is whether WE tv will cancel her spinoff show Mama June: From Not to Hot over the recent drug-related arrest.
It was only a matter of days between TMZ publishing a photo of June with the child molester and the network canning the Honey Boo Boo show. It was just a few days ago that Mama June Shannon and Geno Doak were arrested at a gas station in Alabama. Someone called the law on them and reported a domestic incident in public. That triggered the arrest.
June, this show was your 2nd chance. 3am tweeked out at the casino is not a good look on anybody. Your fans want to see you succeed. Go to rehab please. Cocaine? Is that really what you want to be known for? You’re a Mom first. Try to remember that.

Police Confirm Crack Cocaine Found in June Shannon’s Vehicle
Going from Mama June: From Not to Hot to arrested happened fast. The police reported they found a needle on Geno Doak and a glass pipe in Mama June’s pocket with white powder residue. There was another needle and a vial of white powder in their vehicle. The police said she admitted it was crack cocaine.
Then, she was last spotted living it up with Geno Doak at a casino playing the slots days after her arrest. The two were reportedly alone in Alabama when the arrest went down and Alana Thompson was not with them. Honey Boo Boo was also not spotted in the casino pic. The allegations are startling but June Shannon insisted to a tow truck that it was a simple DUI. The police say differently.
Will Sugar Bear Take Honey Boo Boo?
The last custody case was about Mama June bringing a risky guy into the home with Alana Thompson. Now, the latest on the Mama June: From Not to Hot star is a crack cocaine allegation. Meanwhile, Honey Boo Boo’s dad Sugar Bear Mike Thompson seems to be in a stable home situation with wife Jennifer Lamb. Currently, he resides about three hours away from his daughter but that could change.
So far, Mike Thompson was unreachable for comment. His last Instagram post was years ago and he doesn’t appear too active on social media. During their last custody case, Mama June Shannon tried to cut him completely out of Alana Thompson’s life and accused him of verbal and emotional abuse. All this spilled out on episodes of her WE tv reality show. Now that her real-life drama is amped up will Mike Thompson file custody? Will Sugar make a move to take away Honey Boo Boo? We’ll keep you updated as this sordid story unfolds.
