Sugar Bear and Jennifer’s Mama June Journey
Mike Thompson AKA Sugar Bear is the father of Honey Boo Boo. He had been dating Mama June since 2004 and was engaged to her for almost 16 months. The two even took part in a commitment ceremony, though they split up in September 2014. The very public breakup was caused mainly due to the discovery of Sugar Bear’s online dating profile. The accusations of infidelity were confirmed by Sugar Bear during his and Mama June’s appearance in ‘Marriage Boot Camp.’ Sugar Bear admitted to sleeping with both men and women while in a relationship with June.
After the breakup, Sugar Bear started dating Jennifer Lamb, whom he met thanks to online chatting portals. On January 22, 2017, Sugar Bear and Jennifer got married in a small ceremony. Since then, both Sugar Bear and Jennifer seemed to be content in their relationship, though the two were embroiled in a custody battle with Mama June over Honey Boo Boo. As seen on the show, the couple claimed that Mama June did not let Sugar Bear visit his only daughter.
Sugar Bear and Jennifer have seen many ups and downs since their wedding. Jennifer went through a significant weight transformation and got surgery to remove several pounds of fat. Sugar Bear even asked his wife to marry him again in 2019, but this time only for friends and families and not for the cameras. However, it seems like all may not be well for the duo. Many viewers cannot help but notice the tiff between the two. Naturally, fans are curious to know if Sugar Bear and Jennifer are still together, or have they split up? Well, here’s what we know.
Are Sugar Bear and Jennifer Still Together?
No, Sugar Bear and Jennifer are not together anymore. The news came to light in December of 2021 when Jennifer apparently updated the fans regarding her split from husband Sugar Bear AKA Mike Thompson. Though she claimed that they were on good terms, many theorized about the reasons behind the split. Several viewers believed that Sugar Bear may have been unfaithful to his wife. Others think that Jennifer’s transformation may have led Sugar Bear to lose interest in her.
Whatever the reason may be, the separation has been confirmed by both Sugar Bear and Jennifer. Furthermore, in March 2022 , Sugar Bear took to social media and revealed that he was in a relationship with Heather Davis, a single mother. Although the actual reasons for his breakup with Jennifer have not yet been revealed, there seems to be no bad blood between them. With that being said, we hope that they find happiness in their respective journeys in life.
