Mama June’s Daughter Confesses She Is ‘Lucky’ If She Hears from Mom Twice a Week Amid Drug Case
The reality star’s daughter opened up about their relationship and explained how estranged Mama June has become from her children.
19-year-old Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon of “Mama June: From Not to Hot” sat for a talk with producer Moriah, accompanied by her sister, Jo “Doe Doe” Shannon, to answer some difficult questions.
During the candid talk, Lauryn explained that her mother, Mama June, has become distant because of her involvement with alleged convict boyfriend, Geno Doak.
Lauryn explained that hearing from her mother has become rare following her arrest in Alabama drug case alongside Doak back in March.
“Since the arrest, I am lucky if I hear from her twice a week, and this is the person I talk to every day,” Lauryn lamented.
Her sister, Jo, was also questioned if she heard from June since the incident. But she had a very similar answer to her sister.
“Nothing. Absolutely nothing,” she said, before adding that June hates her because she thinks Jo “orchestrated” everything.
Lauryn went on to confess that she did go down to Alabama to give her mother a visit. But when Moriah further probed about June’s wellbeing, Lauryn simply stated that she couldn’t see anything “physically wrong with her.”
June and boyfriend Doak were arrested at a gas station in Alabama in March.
Doak was arrested and charged with domestic violence and harassment, while June was arrested for felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.
According to AL.com, they were in possession of crack cocaine and a crack pipe. However, June got out of jail just after 24 hours of her arrest.
Andre Brunson, Macon County Sheriff, previously stated that June continued to visit Doak in jail to take care of him even after she got out.
Earlier this month, an episode of “Mama June: From Not to Hot” also saw June’s daughters, Lauryn and Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, trying to hold an intervention for their mother because of her behavior.
