Mama June is just full of surprises, isn’t she?
Good or bad, interesting or revolting, Mama June has plenty of stories to tell.
And this new one she’s telling sure is a doozy.
In a new interview with Life & Style, June explains that her current relationship with Sugar Bear, is “non-existent,” which makes sense.
They broke up well over a year ago, and as we’ve seen on Mama June: From Hot to Not, she’s basically sworn enemies with his new woman, Jennifer Lamb.
But when June is asked if she ever saw herself getting friendlier with Sugar Bear, her response was shocking.
“There was just so much emotional and physical abuse,” she said of her time with Sugar Bear. “I just choose not to put my kids through that.”
… Wait, what?
From all we’ve seen of Sugar Bear on various reality television shows, he seems to be a quiet, laid back kind of guy. He was always content to let June be in charge, just like he’s fine with his new wife making the rules.
We’ve never seen a hint of him being abusive, but that’s not to say he wasn’t. TV cameras can’t capture everything, of course.
In the interview, June also announces a brand new special all about Sugar Bear.
“You saw a little bit on Marriage Boot Camp,” she teases, “but this shows the real true side of Sugar Bear and when the special comes out y’all are going to be like ‘what the hell.'”
As for his current wife, June simply says “Watch out.”
While it may be a little shocking to hear about this alleged new side of Sugar Bear, it’s worth pointing out that this isn’t the first time we’ve been shocked by him.
In an interview done just a few days ago, Alana Thompson — Honey Boo Boo herself — claimed that he body-shamed her.
Alana, who is just 11 years old, said that she was talking to her father on the phone when he mentioned that he needed to mow his lawn. She offered to do it for him if he had a riding lawnmower.
His response? She should use a push mower, because “it couldn’t hurt.”
And since June mentions Marriage Boot Camp … well, goodness knows we learned a lot about Sugar Bear on that show.
For instance, we learned that he cheated on June. A lot.
And not only did he cheat, but he cheated on her with a close friend of theirs, with his ex-wife, and also with some men.
So in addition to the cheating and the body-shaming of a child, could Sugar Bear be abusive?
Guess we’ll wait till this new special to see.
