Ah, Mama June. You gone and done it now.
Mama June, whose real name is June Shannon, first stepped into fame when her daughter, Honey Boo Boo (whose real name is Alana), became a star on the TLC show, “Toddlers In Tiaras.” The unique mother-daughter pair won over millions with their back-country remarks and dedication to pageantry.
The duo became an epic pair, practically overnight. And Mama June, became her own star after going through a drastic weightless journey. For the next couple of years, Mama June and Honey Boo Boo lived relatively low-key lives. But on March 13th, 2019, Mama June found herself making headlines- and not for any good reason.
According to TMZ, Mama June, 38, was taken into custody after getting into a domestic incident on Wednesday evening with her boyfriend Geno Doak, 42. Daily Mail reveals that Mama June’s boyfriend, Doak, was arrested for domestic violence/harassment, felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. Mama June wasn’t completely innocent as she was charged seriously with felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.
Unfortunately, this wasn’t the first time Doak had had a run-in with the law; since 1996, he’s spent some serious time behind bars for major charges such as felony burglary.
As of right now, it is not known what kind of drugs Mama June and her boyfriend are being accused of. We have one simple wish in this mess and it’s that the children are safe. Mama June has not made the best decisions in the past with people whom she’s chosen to date and she’s put her own children at risk in the past multiple times. We can only hope that they, too, have not been influenced by these recent scenarios.
