Mama June and Sugar Bear of TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo have reportedly called it quits.
“Sugar Bear [Mike Thompson] and I have decided to take some time apart to figure out some things in our relationship,” Mama June, whose real name is June Shannon, told People exclusively in a statement.
“We are taking things day by day, but regardless of what happens, the girls will always be our number one priority. We want to thank y’all for your support.”
June’s and Mike’s relationship has been documented on their hit reality show, and in May the couple exchanged vows in front of their children and family in an intimate commitment ceremony.
They never actually married due to June’s issues with marriage.
Things seemed to be going well for the couple until recently when June found out that Mike had secret online dating profiles. One of those profiles was found on Plentyoffish.com.
Mike supposedly goes by Georgiafighter31054, and his profile reads, “I love to hunt fish and ride 4wheelers and have a good time. I love muddy Boggs and love to ride in the mud.”

June has made it clear that she would never settle for a man who didn’t treat her right, and has stopped wearing her wedding rings since she found the profiles.
“Never settle for a man who doesn’t treat you right,” June said at the time of their ceremony. “If a guy doesn’t love everything about you, move on! There are plenty of other fish in the sea.”
