Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson Fires Back at Mama June Over Abuse Claims


The bad blood between Mama June Shannon and Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson has officially resurfaced.

After an ugly breakup early last year, it appeared things had settled down a bit during the matriarch’s spin-off From Not to Hot. That is, until June accused her ex of child abuse this week!

“It’s time the world sees him for what he is,” the 37-year-old told PageSix on Monday.

She then proceeded to discuss the “emotional and physical scars” her former beau gave both daughter Alanna “Honey Boo Boo” and step daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin.”

“Pumpkin’s eye buckle was caused by him … because he got mad,” she claimed. “So many emotional and physical scars with the kids.”

Though she didn’t name any specific instances of physical abuse with Alanna, she did say the 11-year-old “hasn’t had [a relationship] in a long time” with her father — though she was a flower girl in his wedding to new wife Jennifer Lamb in January.

The newly-thin reality star admitted she made a mistake trying to film with Sugar Bear for From Not to Hot, and said going forward, she’s “not going to put my kids through that ever again.”

Now, the man himself is speaking out, fighting back against the claims in an interview with RadarOnline.com.

“No, I never abused them kids,” he states firmly.

He then adds, “I loved them kids!”

Interestingly enough, June’s eldest daughter, Anna “Chickadee” Shannon-Cardwell, remains estranged from her mother while reconnecting with her former stepdad.

According to Radar, the 22-year-old recently moved in with Sugar Bear and Jennifer.

Meanwhile, Chickadee’s relationship with her mom is still damaged after the WE tv star reportedly dated convicted child molestor Mark McDaniel in 2014, following her first breakup with Sugar Bear.
