Mama June & Sugar Bear Separate After She Discovers His Cheating Ways

Mama June, Sugar Bear

Say it ain't so! Mama June and Sugar Bear Thompson look like they're headed to splitsville. Honey Boo Boo's parents have separated and are taking "some time apart to figure out some things."

Although they never legally wed, they celebrated with a commitment ceremony last year, complete with Mama June Shannon resplendent in camo-and-orange formalwear. It seems as though Mama was right when she decided to forego the legal bonds of matrimony.


Sources tell TMZ that Mama June is convinced that Sugar Bear is cheating on her. She's apparently caught him trolling online on dating sites, including, where he supposedly goes by the username Georgiafighter31054.

The profile describes a "non-smoker with undisclosed body type" who "wants a relationship." It also says, "i love to hunt fish and ride 4wheelers and havfe a good time. i luve muddy Boggs and love to ride in the mudd."

Mama June has reportedly stopped wearing her wedding ring (commitment ring?) and is planning to move out with the kids once the latest round of filming for Here Comes Honey Boo Boo wraps. She wants to be closer to relatives, likely so they can take care of her and feed her comfort foods like sketti.

Producers are said to be scrambling to figure out what's next. Or how to capitalize on their separation. That last one is just my own speculation, by the way.

In a statement to TMZ, June and Sugar Bear said:

Sugar Bear and I have decided to take some time apart to figure out some things in our relationship. We are taking things day by day but regardless of what happens the girls will always be our #1 priority. We want to thank y'all for your support.

Are you surprised by this news?
