Since the famous Mama June started behaving in a troubling manner, every penny that her daughter, Honey Boo Boo, owns is now officially protected from her mother.
As the TMZ reports states, Honey Boo Boo’s attorney intervened on her behalf. The whole family was more than concerned about Alana Thompson (Honey Boo Boo’s real name) and her mother, June Shannon. Namely, June has shown the tendency to drain her youngest daughter’s bank accounts.
June needs the money in order to fund her reckless lifestyle. Thus, the whole family decided to step in and protect former ‘Toddlers and Tiaras’ star.
The main concern regarding June and her thirteen-year-old daughter are that she will use Alana’s money to finance casino trips with Geno Doak, June’s boyfriend. June also has a drug habit and was arrested under accusations of possessing cocaine.
Pumpkin Is in Charge of Alana’s Money From Now On
Mama June’s oldest daughter, Lauryn Thompson, better known as Pumpkin from the series, is the only person in charge of Alana’s money. But Honey Boo Boo’s nineteen-year-old sister will have to prove that she can use the funds solely for her younger sister’s benefit and needs.
Since their mother’s home became an unstable environment, the two sisters have been living together.
During the Mama June’s finale of ‘Not to Hot,’ aired in May this year, the whole family organized an intervention in order to help her realize how many issues she has to deal with. June’s kids begged her to agree to go and seek help in a treatment facility where she could work on herself and be a good grandmother to their children.
Unfortunately enough, June was very defensive and refused to listen and seek help. As Pumpkin recalled the intervention, she said that the whole thing took a lot from them. June wasn’t precisely herself, which means that she was highly unpredictable. If she happens to bolt and her family loses her from their site, they say that there is no telling when they would see her again.
However, Mama June is aware of the fact that she hasn’t been herself lately. She said that she knew that she wasn’t the same as before, during the ‘Not to Hot’ finale. June also said that she no longer feels the need to get out of bed in the morning, nor does she want to get her hair, makeup, or nails done.
