Oh no, y’all! Honey Boo Boo’s mom, Mama June, has finally kicked Sugar Bear to the curb after she caught him allegedly looking for some extra love online.
Mama June Shannon, 35, and her husband, Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson, 42, have decided to separate. The parents of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, 6, commited to each other during a special ceremony in Sept. 2013 after being together for 9 years. So sad.
‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ Stars Split: Mama June & Sugar Bear To Separate
Wow. They barely made it to one whole year of marriage before having to call it quits.
After 10 years together, Mama June and her longtime love, Sugar Bear, are separating. Apparently, Mama June has “repeatedly” caught Sugar Bear using dating sites to meet new women, reports TMZ.
According to the report, Sugar Bear, whose real name is Mike, was using websites like PlentyOfFish.com to catch a little something new.
Sadly, the news of their split has been confirmed in an official statement.
“Sugar Bear and I have decided to take some time apart to figure out some things in our relationship. We are taking things day by day but regardless of what happens the girls will always be our #1 priority. We want to thank ya’ll for your support.”
This news is especially devastating because the couple finally decided to make things official with a commitment ceremony that posed as an all-out redneck wedding in Sept. 2013 — nine years after they started dating.
Mama June and Sugar Bear have only one child together, Alana, the star of the family’s hit reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

A screen capture of a profile allegedly belonging to Sugar Bear reveals he used the name “georgiafighter31054,” and the profile’s headline claims he was looking to “have fun and hang out.” Um, what kind of fun were you looking for, Sugar Bear?
Notably suspicious: the marital status reads “single.” Poor Mama June!
No word yet on whether or not this split will play out on the show.
