Mama June threatens to TAKE BACK custody of daughter Honey Boo Boo, 16, from Pumpkin, 22, in shocking new video | The Sun

Mama June has vowed to regain custody of her daughter Honey Boo Boo, who is currently under her older sister Pumpkin's care.

The Mama June: Road to Redemption star made the shocking threat in a clip for Friday's episode.

In the scene, the 42-year-old, whose real name is June Shannon, got into a confrontation with her daughter Lauryn "Pumpkin" Efird outside her new trailer.

The pair have been estranged due to June's drug issues, which led to Lauryn gaining custody of her 16-year-old sister, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson.

"Alana can stay here," June declared, angering Lauryn, who is the teen's decision-maker.

"Ah! Alana is not staying here. Get that through your thick f***ing skull," she yelled back. "Why would I let her come over here and stay? I'm her momma now."

June was not pleased with her daughter's reaction, sarcastically responding: "Yea, you got that in writing?"

In a confessional interview, the family matriarch insisted that she could "take her [Alana] back" anytime.

"I'm still the momma, Alana is mine, and I can take her back anytime I want," June stated.

Lauryn was not backing down, clapping back in an interview: "I've worked my a** off to build this family that was somewhat functional, and I'd be damned if I let Mama come back around and change all that."

The Sun exclusively reported earlier this month that Lauryn was awarded full custody of Alana.

In the final order issued in April 2022, the judge wrote that Lauryn "has had guardianship of the minor child since April 29, 2019.

"It is in the best interest of the child that the plaintiff is awarded sole custody." 

The judge ordered June to pay $800 in monthly child support to Lauryn, beginning on May 1, 2022, and to continue on the 1st of every month until Alana turns 18.

Lauryn now has the right to make the day-to-day care decisions for Alana, and she has the sole decision-making authority for major decisions.

Additionally, the 22-year-old mother of four will have the discretion to allow "visitation between the defendant [June] and the minor [Alana]." 

In the ruling, the judge noted that both parties had agreed to the arrangement outlined in the document.

The young mother also just gave birth to twins earlier this month, as The Sun first reported. 

In addition to raising Alana and her newborn babies, Lauryn is also a mom to a son Bentley, 10 months, and a daughter Ella, four, with her husband, Josh Efird, 25.


June's battle with drugs spiraled out of control and came to a head when she was arrested on drug possession charges in March of 2019 along with her boyfriend at the time, Geno Doak, 46.

Lauryn was awarded temporary guardianship over Alana in August of 2019, with permission from Alana's father, Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson.

In her drug addiction, June sold the family's Georgia home at a loss for fast cash in October 2019.

June now claims to be nearly two years sober.

In other big news for June's family, The Sun exclusively reported earlier this week that the reality TV personality tied the knot with her new boyfriend Justin Stroud in a secret courthouse ceremony in March. 

A clerk confirmed to The Sun that the WeTV star and her new man, 34, quietly tied the knot at a Georgia courthouse on March 23.
