Sugar Bear Is Fighting For Visitation of Honey Boo Boo
Even though Mama June attended Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson’s wedding, it’s clear the two still aren’t on good terms.
During the reunion special of From Not to Hot, their already tense relationship exploded, with the revelation that Sugar Bear was fighting for visitation of their daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson.
The drama began when the 45-year-old shut down Mama June’s claims that he hasn’t tried to visit his daughter.
Then, throughout the episode, Sugar Bear teased “paperwork” and “the truth,” however, when his ex asked that he “be honest,” he exploded.
The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star angrily called Mama June a “bitch,” and even lunged at her 17-year-old daughter, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon.
“I got you too! I got you too,” the reality star yelled at Pumpkin, who was held back by the family’s security guard.
Sugar Bear eventually headed back to his dressing room to cool down, which was when his new wife Jennifer stepped in.
She came back to speak with Mama June and revealed the secret they’d been keeping throughout the episode.
“[Sugar Bear] is doing the legitimation for Alana to go to court to get visitation,” Jennifer revealed.
In Georgia, the father of a child born out of wedlock needs to obtain documentation to have legal rights to his child.
“I can guarantee you that he will never get custody or regular visitation of Alana as long as I’m motherf—king alive,” the mother of four shouted back.
“I’m telling you, y’all are in for a treat, because that baby daddy drama is for real. Game’s on. You wanna play? Let’s play this.”
Earlier on in the reunion special Honey Boo Boo revealed that she would like a closer relationship with her father but only if he makes some changes.
“I would want him to stop being so angry all the time,” she said. “I would like him to start being my father, actually.”
At that time, Mama June said she would only want the father and daughter to have a relationship “if [Honey Boo Boo] chooses to.”
Well, now it looks like the two exes are heading to court. Hopefully, with the court's help, they’ll be able to work this out for Honey Boo Boo’s sake.
