Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, her husband Josh Efird and her younger sister Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson were evicted from the house in Georgia they were renting after Mom June left the family for her troubled boyfriend, Geno Doak.
In court documents obtained exclusively by the Sun, Josh Efird was sued for not paying $1,242 in rent on September 10, 2019. He was also hit with a late charge of $95.
According to court documents in Georgia, the landlord claimed rent and possession of the house. Josh Efird was served on September 11, 2019 with a summons posted on his doorstep.
The documents state that Josh did not respond to the summons. The court ordered the sheriff’s office to remove him and all of his personal effects from the property on October 10, 2019.
A Georgia court clerk confirmed to The Sun that the eviction was carried out. Josh was not ordered to pay the overdue rent or late fees. A representative of Josh did not immediately respond to The Sun’s request for comment.
The eviction happened after Mama June, 40, left her family to go get drunk with her boyfriend, Geno.
Mom June and Geno were arrested in March 2019 for possession of a controlled substance – crack, cocaine – and possession of drug paraphernalia – a crack pipe. In October 2019, their lawyer pleaded not guilty on their behalf. The Sun reported exclusively that they have a trial scheduled for May 2020.
Mama June sold her house in Georgia with a huge loss in exchange for quick cash in October 2019. Then, in December 2019, June and Geno were charged with causing $1,000 in damages after destroying their hotel room.
They were allegedly kicked out of another hotel in January after failing to pay a $2,000 bill. Mama June was spotted pawning a diamond ring for $1,500 and selling custom Cameo videos for $30.
Mama June’s youngest daughter Alana, 14, was with Josh and Pumpkin, 21. About Mama June: From Not to Hot Family Crisis, Pumpkin and Alana went to California to be with their PR and friend Gina Rodriguez.
Alana’s father, Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson, and his wife, Jennifer Lamb, are also staying with Gina.
In the most recent episode, Honey Boo Boo was shocked when her mother commented on Instagram that she misses Josh and Pumpkin’s daughter, Ella, even though she hasn’t answered the family’s calls and messages.
Pumpkin said of her mother after seeing her sister upset, “I love her to death, I really do, and I’d do anything for her, but at this point I’d also like to slap her.
While the kids enjoyed California, Mama’s sister June Doe Doe, and her friend Mike, were in Alabama looking for June and Geno.
Over the past few months, June has posted on Instagram photos and videos from seedy places that look like they’ve been disheveled with their missing teeth.
The last time she posted an Instagram video at Easter, she urged fans to ask her for a Cameo clip for money, while fans begged her to return to her daughters.
