Mama June Shannon says there's another side to Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson few have seen.
The reality TV star, whose real name is June Shannon, appeared on “The Wendy Williams Show” on Tuesday where she claimed that her ex was “very emotionally and physically” abusive. The allegation was made after previewing a clip from the reunion episode of “Mama June: From Not to Hot,” during which Sugar Bear loses his temper.
“There was a lot of stuff that was hid for many, many years,” she explained “In this episode, y’all are going to be shocked.”
According to Mama June, Sugar Bear does not have a relationship with their daughter, Alana “Honey Boo Boo" Thompson. Mama June alleged that he injured her other daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon.
“Pumpkin’s eye, that was his fault. The thing that we were showing on ‘Honey Boo Boo,’ we never did,” she said. “The car wreck, several things that happened on ‘Honey Boo Boo’ that was kinda, like, covered up.”
This isn’t the first time Mama June claimed Sugar Bear was abusive.
“It’s time the world sees him for what he is,” she previously told Page Six. “Pumpkin’s eye buckle was caused by him because he got mad. So many emotional and physical scars with the kids.”
