June Shannon, who's known as Mama June, is opening up about the cost of her drug addiction.
On a recent episode of "Mama June: Family Crisis," June told her daughter Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon that she and boyfriend Geno Doak were at one point using $2,500 worth of meth every day.
"Because, you know, at that point, we was doing quite a bit," she said. "I mean, it was a couple ounces a day. Our habit was $2,500 a day if not more."
She admitted, "It wasn't something that just started. … I got high because I wanted to. It's not the first time I've ever done drugs. You know that."
Pumpkin quickly interrupted her mom, telling her, "This is the first time that we've been older that you've been strung out. The thing is: You can't get clean and then Gino not get f—— clean."
June implied that she and Geno are getting better.
"I promise you for the last couple months, we've been, I would say, 90 percent good," June said.
Pumpkin, who's never been shy when it comes to her feelings about Geno, then sounded off on her mom's boyfriend of four and a half years.
"I'm at the point of, like, I'm kind of done with him," she said. "Because I don't like the way that he has treated you."
"I don't even understand, quite honestly, why you are still with him," she said. "He has done you dirty, like, he came into the house, and then it was like he was pushing me out."
June eventually sold that house for an enormous loss, telling Pumpkin that she was dead broke — hence the reason for the fire sale.
The relationship with Geno has caused a huge amount of strain with June's family. Some family members think that her boyfriend has June in a "mental prison."
In May 2019, TMZ reported that June's most famous child, daughter Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, 14, has been living with 20-year-old Lauryn, who's married with a baby, instead of with her mom. TMZ has also reported that Honey Boo Boo won't move back in with June as long as Geno's around.
A few months earlier, TMZ reported June's family felt that Geno had been "an awful influence on June since they started dating." The report came a few days after June was arrested in Alabama for drug possession with Geno. The family hoped that would be the final straw in the relationship — but they were ultimately disappointed. On March 16 — just three days after the arrest — June and Geno were spotted playing slots at a casino. Interestingly, the court had ordered Geno to stay away from June after the incident.
