AceShowbiz - Ever since reports of Mama June a.k.a. June Shannon living at a casino first hit the internet, people have been wondering who is taking care of her daughter, Honey Boo Boo a.k.a. Alana Thompson. If sources from TMZ are to be believed, the 13-year-old star is currently living with her sister, Pumpkin a.k.a. Lauryn Shannon.
Sources close to the "Mama June: From Not to Hot" star explains to the publication that 19-year-old Lauryn is now serving as her younger sister's guardian and that the latter has been staying at her place for several months. As for the reason for the move, it's said that Alana and her other sisters have decided to keep their distance from June and her drama.
The insider further alleges that Alana is also helping Lauryn take care of her 1-year-old child Ella. The former contestant of "Dancing with the Stars: Juniors" allegedly is happy with her current circumstances since Lauryn is stable. Meanwhile, the source says that June hasn't seen her children for a while now.
June was recently caught trying her luck on a slot machine at the Wind Creek casino in Montgomery, with sources alleging that she cashed out a $1,000 ticket. The mother of four allegedly told a fellow gambler that she lives at the casino and had been staying on the property for the past few months. Eyewitness said June had been seen at least three times at the resort.
The source additionally dished that her boyfriend, Geno Doak, came down to the casino floor and spoke with June several times. She, however, didn't look happy when she noticed someone took her picture at the building.
"The two had been staying at the casino for some time but had checked out and moved to a different spot, until coming back today," a source previously said of the couple. "They have been gambling and playing the slots all morning and talking to friends they made on the floor."
