Mama June Shannon has reportedly moved on with a new guy after breaking things off with her longtime (on-again) beau, Sugar Bear. According to Radar Online, June has been dating 40-year-old Geno Doak. Mr. Doak owns a home remodeling business near where June lives in Georgia. The two reportedly met when June hired Geno to do some work at her home.
“They’ve been dating for about a month. She’s really smitten,” said a source.
Mama June split with Sugar Bear after the two gave their relationship one final go on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. The two have had their fair share of problems and ultimately decided that they couldn’t stay together any longer.
According to In Touch Weekly, June Shannon decided to break things off with Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson after he allegedly cheated on her with other women and men.
Evidently the former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star isn’t trying to keep her new romance on the down low. She reportedly took to Facebook and mentioned something about having a special someone in her life.
“Well we are safe back in Atlanta, so exhausted, so headed home to my someone special,” she wrote on her private account according to Radar Online.
Interestingly enough, Doak doesn’t seem like he is ready to let the world know about his supposed relationship with Mama June. When he was asked about it, he denied knowing the family, despite being friends with some of them on Facebook. Perhaps he just doesn’t want any attention from the media.
“Doak denied knowing Shannon— though he is friends with the reality star, her daughter Lauryn ‘Pumpkin’ Shannon, and the 16-year-old’s fiancé, Josh Elfird, 19, on Facebook. He also ‘likes’ Shannon’s 10-year-old former pageant queen daughter, Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson, on the social media site.”
