It’s a sad day for Mama June as she’s officially lost custody of her youngest daughter.
People reported the reality TV star, who has struggled with drug addiction in recent years, no longer has custody, and Honey Boo Boo has been taken in by her older sister.
Mama June Loses Custody Of 16-Year-Old Honey Boo Boo
According to Georgia court documents, a Wilkinson County judge has granted sole custody of Honey Boo Boo to her 22-year-old sister, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon.
Per the documents, Mama June is allowed to contact Alana via telephone every day but visitation rights will be determined by Pumpkin.
She will also have to pay $800.00/month in child support to Pumpkin.
Pumpkin Has Full Custody Of Honey Boo Boo
The child custody agreement will end once Honey Boo Boo turns 18-years-old on August 28, 2023.
At one point, Mama June said she had a few dollars to her name when entering rehab in 2020.
Now, the reality TV star is reportedly making $25,000/ month due to her show, “Mama June: Road To Redemption” and endorsements.
Mama June Can Have Contact But Visitation Is Up For Debate
The custody news comes just days after Mama June married her boyfriend of less than a year, Justin Stroud.
We recently reported on the couple’s nuptials which took place two months ago in a Georgia courthouse.
Their relationship became legally binding on March 23, 2022. That same month, the couple sparked engagement rumors after photos of them shopping for rings in Alabama made the rounds.
On Wednesday, June 1, MJ and Stroud uploaded a video to TikTok.
“Anyways guys, I know y’all been seeing some stuff on social media and y’all have been running our chats and messaging us asking, ‘Are we married.’ Well, we’re here today to clear up some rumors,” June said holding her left hand. “Well, official MamaJune and official Smalls are OFF THE MARKET.”

She continued, “Guys, you know what? When you know, you just know. And if you want to follow our love story, tune into ‘Mama June: From Not To Hot: Road To Redemption’ 9 central, cause you’re not gunna want to miss how our love story started.”
Stroud then lays a wet one on her cheek while she throws her arm around him.

Fans left mixed reviews on her post.
Fans Worry About Her Sobriety
One skeptical fan wrote, “Wow so pumpkin was right. You never leave one without having another lined up 🤦🏽♀️,” while another commented, “Bless your heart. Looks like you’ll never learn your lesson. One train wreck after the other. Hopefully your daughters and sister stick with you through this one. The oldest daughter got off the wreck many years ago after the third guy did you wrong. Good luck.”
Some supportive fans replied, “Hopefully he is clean and supports your sobriety. Team works makes dream work,” and “Congrats long as your clean and happy I’m here for it.”
