‘Mama June’ Shannon and Mike ‘Sugar Bear’ Thompson, stars of TLC reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo have separated.
In a statement released on Friday, June 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 ya’ll for your support.’
According to several sources, June pulled the plug on the relationship because she believes Sugar Bear is cheating on her. The fact is that he has an account on a dating website PlentyofFish.com, where he listed his marital status as ‘single’. What is unclear is whether he actually met any woman using the dating sites.
Another fact: June and Sugar Bear were never officially married, even though they had a commitment ceremony.
Producers of their reality show are reportedly scrambling to deal with the development.
