‘Honey Boo Boo’ Reports: Sugar Bear Collapses, Uncle Poodle Ready to File for Custody
More news is surfacing in the wake of reports that 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' star Mama June Shannon is dating a child molester.
Things took a scary turn on Sunday afternoon (Nov. 2), when Sugar Bear reportedly fainted at Mama June's house. Sources tell TMZ that Sugar Bear, who is staying at Mama June's for a few days, collapsed but regained consciousness before the EMTs arrived. The insiders cite high blood pressure as the reason behind the medical scare.
While Mama June's mother confirmed that child protective services are investigating the child molester situation, Honey Boo Boo's uncle is allegedly prepared to file for custody of her if things get worse. As we previously reported, Sugar Bear has no immediate plans to fight for custody of his daughter.
However, TMZ claims that Uncle Poodle and his fiance are looking into filing for temporary custody. The two men apparently are financially stable and can care for her. Sources tell TMZ that Uncle Poodle will file for temporary custody if Mama June does not cut off her relationship with Mark McDaniel. They are allegedly interested in applying for temporary custody, as opposed to permanent, because they hope eventually Sugar Bear will be able to care for Honey Boo Boo.
Lastly, TMZ reports that Mama June will not receive her fully salary for the un-aired season of 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' because the network holds her responsible for the show's cancellation. While she will receive a reduced payment, sources tell TMZ that all of the children, as well as Uncle Poodle and Sugar Bear, will receive their full salaries.
We can only hope that things settle down for the sake of the children involved.
