Mama June's Daughter Pumpkin Says Family's 'Going Through Rough Patch'
June Shannon has not publicly addressed the arrest.
Mama's June's daughter Pumpkin is thanking fans for their support during the family's "rough patch."
June Shannon was arrested on March 13 at an Alabama gas station. She allegedly had crack cocaine and a crack pipe on her at the time and was charged with drug possession. June's boyfriend, Geno Doak, was also arrested and reportedly charged with third-degree domestic violence, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
As the latest episode of June's WE show "From Not to Hot" aired Friday, Pumpkin addressed viewers about the "stuff out in the media."
"...Our family is going through a rough patch," said 19-year-old Pumpkin, who's name is Lauryn. "But this year alone we have had a lot of happiness. And when my mom and Alana were out in California and everything seemed good. Then the next couple months rolled around and things took a turn. We’re sharing our story in hopes that it helps another family and I sincerely want to thank our fans for always being there and loving and supporting us.”
WE also aired a statement before the episode: "We share our viewers concerns for June Shannon and her entire family. We are monitoring events as they occur and are focused, as always, on the entire family’s well-being."
June has not publicly addressed the arrest, but she did live-tweet the premiere of her show's third season on March 15. "Sorry I'm so late starting tweeting the show," she wrote at the beginning of the series. "Hey y'all sorry my internet has been down and where I'm at does not have cable that picks up wetv but hopefully u r watching," she added."
