AceShowbiz - Mama June a.k.a. June Shannon is missing her kids, months after she reportedly turned down a reunion with her family and chose to be with her boyfriend Geno Doak instead. On Thursday, January 23, the reality TV star took to Instagram to share a heartfelt message expressing her hope that things change between her and her daughters.
Posting a selfie of her cheerfully smiling in a car, the "Mama June: From Not to Hot" star wrote in the caption, "Well decided to get back at it im not saying im.perfect as everyday is a strugglr n some days i just want to disappear n even though me n kids arent still seeing each other n its veen very hard on all of us." She added, "but i hope one day that will cgange as i want them to know i miss n love them very much."
June has since received a lot of support from her followers, with one writing, "No one is perfect , wishing you the best." A fan commented, "Prayers for you and your family." A third user added, "June, have been a fan for years. Please get sober and get well. You were such a great mom and your girls need you and they love you."
June's relationship with her family began to tear apart after her March arrest. Someone reported her and her boyfriend Geno for having a confrontation at a gas station in Alabama and police charged both of them for felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. Geno was also charged for domestic violence/harassment.
Geno was ordered by a judge to stay away from his girlfriend due to his third-degree domestic violence charge stemming from the March arrest, but they defied the judge's order by living together. June's family later staged an intervention which was captured on camera for "From Not to Hot", but she refused to get help.
Her youngest daughter Honey Boo Boo a.k.a. Alana Thompson said in an episode of the show that she's staying with her sister Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, who has a temporary custody of her, and it's not by choice. But June seemed to be defiant and chose to be with her boyfriend instead. As of late 2019, June and Geno moved from one hotel to another after she sold her Georgia home in June.
