"We're sharing our story in hopes that it helps another family," explained Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon in a statement.
Mama June Shannon has remained silent since being arrested on drug possession charges. However, her daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon recently spoke out in an interview.
At the start of Friday’s episode of "Mama June: From Not to Hot," two messages talking about Mama June’s recent troubles were aired.
“We share our viewers concerns for June Shannon and her entire family. We are monitoring events as they occur and are focused, as always, on the entire family’s well-being,” read a statement from WE tv.
Pumpkin, 19, later shared her own statement. She explained that the family was sharing their story and that they were currently going through a rough patch.

“Hey guys, as you know, you’ve seen the stuff out in the media and our family is going through a rough patch. But this year alone we have had a lot of happiness. And when my mom and Alana were out in California and everything seemed good. Then the next couple months rolled around and things took a turn,” she added. “We’re sharing our story in hopes that it helps another family and I sincerely want to thank our fans for always being there and loving and supporting us.”
Mama June, 39, has remained silent on the legal issues. She hasn’t posted anything on Twitter since last week.
The reality star was arrested on March 13 on drug possession charges in Alabama revealed a spokesperson for the Macon County District Attorney’s Office. Shannon was arrested on possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia charges after she was allegedly caught with crack cocaine and a crack pipe on her.
