Mama June Shannon is completely fine with not having full custody of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson.

According to the reality TV star, she didn’t actually lose custody to begin with.

She opened up to Page Six’s “Virtual Reali-tea” about her new life following her felony drug possession arrest.

Honey Boo Boo is 16-years-old and is now under the sole custody of her sister, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efird.

According to Georgia court documents, a Wilkinson County judge has granted sole custody of Honey Boo Boo to her 22-year-old sister.

“Alana made that choice to stay in that environment,” June said.

“People don’t understand the custody thing. It’s not like somebody ‘lost custody.’”

Mama June claimed that no specific incident resulted in the court granting Lauryn custody of Alana.

“In the state of Georgia, you do temporary guardianship every year and [Alana] had been with [Lauryn] in my addiction,” she said. “Well, at the age of 12, you’re able to make your choice.”
