Mama June’s mother begs drug-addled star to ‘get help’ as she sells shoes online for $70

MAMA June’s mother begged the drug-addled star to get help after she tried to sell shoes for $70 on Facebook.

Mama June, whose real name is June Shannon, has been in legal and financial trouble ever since she ran off with bad news boyfriend Geno Doak.

After pawning a diamond ring for $1,500 earlier this month, the From Not to Hot star turned to Facebook Marketplace to sell more belongings.

She captioned photos of black and red Jordans: “Used barely worn only worn 3 times. $70 can meet up located in mcdonough ga.”

June’s estranged mother commented on the post to express her fears for her troubled daughter.

She wrote: “June u need to get help before u lose everything and everyone. He is not good for u all he wants is ur money or everything u got for him and his family.

“U need to think of your own girls and grandkids who love and miss u. I never thought u would end up like this and let a man run over you and take everything u worked for.”

She then responded to a fan’s comment: “I’m her mother and we don’t know where she is at as she is off the grid.

“And yes she needs help bad as long as she is with Geno she will never get the help she needs [and] then his money and everything else will be gone.”

She continued: “I hope she gets help soon [or] it may be too late... U know a parent isn’t supposed to bury their children, they r suppose to bury their parents.”

Mama June, 40, responded that she hasn’t spoken to her mother “in many years.”

She continued: “She has no idea what is going on in my life n no I'm not missing or off the grid.”

In March 2019, Shannon and Geno were charged with possession of crack cocaine - a felony - and a crack pipe - a misdemeanor.

Geno also faces domestic violence charges. The couple pled not guilty to all charges.

June’s daughters Anna, 25, Jessica, 23, and Lauryn, 20, had an intervention to get her into rehab and to leave her boyfriend on Mama June From Not to Hot: The Road to Intervention.

June refused and Honey Boo Boo, 14, whose real name is Alana, has been living with her sister Lauryn, also known as Pumpkin.

Then in December, June and Geno were accused of leaving $1,000 worth of damage after trashing their room at the FairBridge Inn & Suites in Atlanta.

The couple was kicked out of a hotel in January over a $2,000 bill.

For the first time in months, June spoke out about her recent troubles.

She captioned an Instagram photo: “Well decided to get back at it. I’m not saying I’m perfect as everyday is a [struggle] n some days I just want to disappear n even though me n kids aren't still seeing each other n it’s [been] very hard on all of us but I hope one day that will [change].

"I want them to know I miss n love them very much.”
