Mama June seems to be feeling desperate about money these days.
On Saturday TMZ claimed that the former reality TV wonder sold her diamond ring
at a pawn shop for $1,500. The site added the 40-year-old star of Here Comes
Honey Boo Boo fame 'took the very first, seemingly low-ball, offer.'
The ring could have been from current beau Geno Doak or from her ex-husband
The star visited Cash America in Stockbridge, Georgia on Thursday morning.
She didn't haggle with the price offered and quickly took the check, leaving in
a pickup truck, it was claimed.
Sources tell the site it looked like the ring could be a 'wedding or engagement
It could be the ring Doak,gave her during an episode of Mama June: From Not To
Hot which aired in March 2019.
Or, it could be her engagement ring from Sugar Bear, who proposed in July 2013
during an episode of her first series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
He said on the show that he purchased it for less than $400 with cash from
'selling a turkey fryer.'
They split in 2014.
Earlier this month Mama - whose real name is June Shannon - was kicked out of a
Georgia hotel for failing to pay up.
The star and Geno, 44, had been staying at the Residence Inn Marriott in
McDonough, Georgia since around Thanksgiving, according to a report by TMZ.
The former TLC star had rented rooms for herself, Geno and some friends and the
tab started reaching the $2,000 mark.
Hotel staff notified Mama June that she had to pay her bill.
She couldn't pay in full and was a few hundred dollars short.
Sources told the site that hotel staffers informed Mama June they had to leave
and they apparently announced they were headed to another hotel nearby.
Mama June and Geno reportedly 'trashed' a different hotel room in Georgia
recently causing nearly $1,000 in damages.
TMZ reported last week that they engaged in a 'fiery argument' that left a
mirror shattered with what appeared to be a blood-stained handprint.
Police were called to the scene at a FairBridge Inn & Suites located south of
Atlanta where the couple stayed a few months back, but no report was filed and
there were no arrests.
Mama June and Geno have been living in hotels since selling her Hampton, Georgia
home in August 2019 for $100,000.
She and Geno were both arrested last March in Alabama for investigation of
felony drug possession.
Police investigating an apparent domestic dispute at a gas station searched
their car and allegedly found crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia.
The Shannon family rose to fame on TLC in 2011 when Mama June's then
five-year-old daughter Alana 'Honey Boo Boo' Thompson appeared on the series
Toddlers & Tiaras.
