Mama June has turned a new leaf and is celebrating being off of drugs and alcohol for six months.
The reality star announced the news on her Instagram. She spoke to her fans telling them, “Hey guys, what’s up. I just wanted to share some of the things I’ve been getting for my birthday. My manager Gina and her daughter Brandi sent me this sick blinged-out chip.
She added, “This is probably the proudest thing I could be proud of. Six months clean in sobriety.”
June broke down on the episode telling her daughter, “The only reason I sold the house, I was dead f**king broke. Because you know, at that point, we was doing quite a bit. I mean, it was a couple ounces a day. Our habit was $2,500 a day, if not more.” An official on set said that could be equal to 25 grams of meth a day.
She added, “It wasn’t something that just started and, ‘oh my God, I started using drugs. You found out that I got busted…I got high because I wanted to. It’s not the first time I’ve ever done drugs.
As The Blast previously reported, Mama June is still dealing with criminal charges relating to her drug arrest. Last year, a grand jury indicted Mama June and Geno Doak with two criminal charges related to cocaine possession.
The grand jury found the two “did unlawfully possess a controlled substance-to-wit: Cocaine, in violation of” the law and “did unlawfully possess with intent to use in inject, ingest, inhale or otherwise introduce into the human body, drug paraphernalia, to-wit: a pipe” against the law. They are facing years in prison if convicted.
The drug possession charge is a felony, while the paraphernalia charge is a misdemeanor. They are both facing years in prison if convicted.
