The legal battle Mama June has been facing over the last few month still has us reeling, but the latest update that includes her daughter, Honey Boo Boo (real name Alana Thompson), is making us even more concerned for this family. Apparently, Honey Boo Boo has moved out of June's house ... and it doesn't necessarily sound like it was her choice.

  • Reportedly, Honey Boo Boo has been living with big sister Pumpkin for the last few months.

    Insiders close to the situation told TMZ that for now, 19-year-old Pumpkin Shannon (whose real name is Lauryn) is now serving as her younger sister's guardian, and Honey Boo Boo, now 13, helps Pumpkin watch her 1-year-old daughter, Ella.

    Reportedly, Mama June hasn't seen her girls (or the rest of the family) very much lately, and Lauryn and Alana are trying to keep their distance.

    June and Geno were at an Alabama gas station when someone called in a "domestic incident" to police. According to TMZ, cops found drug paraphernalia in their possession, along with a white substance in June's car that she admitted was crack cocaine. They were arrested, and June was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. Geno's charges included felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, and domestic violence/harassment. 

    Earlier this month, Mama June's lawyer quit their case, claiming that he hasn't been able to get in touch with June and Geno.

  • So far, Pumpkin and Honey Boo Boo have yet to speak out about their living arrangements, but Pumpkin did share this tweet last week.

    If you ask us, it seems she's alluding to what's going on with her mom, and we can't blame her for being over it. She's the sweetest big sister for caring for Alana, but neither of them should have to deal with something like this -- especially because they're both so young and still need their mom.

    For now, TMZ reports that Mama June is spending most of her time with Geno holed up in a casino, and it definitely doesn't sound like her situation is improving anytime soon.

  • Meanwhile, Alana seems happy as ever on her own Instagram account.

    Selfies, photos with friends -- we can't imagine what her life must be like right now, but we're glad to see that Honey Boo Boo is still having fun.

    Our fingers are crossed that June can get it together for her girls ASAP. All of her daughters deserve better than this.
