TV Shows Ace reported in May last year that Sugar Bear and Jennifer finally agreed that Alana could live with Pumpkin. However, the condition was that she spend time with them. Also, if she goes to a real school, they wanted to see her reports. Well, in the first of this season, fans saw Alana Thompson meet her father in a diner. Pumpkin’s husband, Josh Efird, didn’t want her to tell Sugar Bear they were planning a trip for Alana to California.
However, Sugar Bear insisted on trying to convince Alana to commit to a weekend visit with him. On the show, we saw Alana finally tell him that they had planned a trip. He forbade it. In the next scene, fans saw Josh say to Sugar Bear, “Too bad.” Alana Thompson lives under his roof and he lets her go, end of story. Of course, that resulted in Mama June: From Not To Hot dad hot under the collar. Also, at her hair appointment, Jennifer said she would make a better parent for Alana.

In the preview of the show, fans saw that Alana got in trouble with her sister Pumpkin for pretending to snort cocaine at school. The news hit the tabloids long before fans knew a new season was coming. In August of last year, TMZ ran the story.
Well, this has become a controversial issue with Jennifer and Sugar Bear wanting full custody of Alana Thompson. In the preview, fans saw Pumpkin tell them she’d “see them in court.” Pumpkin got mad at Alana for giving them a reason to try to take her away.
This all happened after June ran off with Geno and spent time gambling in casinos. Alana Thompson cried because her mother promised her she would never leave her children for a man. While it became public knowledge that Alana started school and lives with Pumpkin, it seems that Sugar Bear has changed her mind. So, premiering for the next episode of Mama June: From Not To Hot, fans saw him and Jennifer arguing to get her back into his custody.
