Mama June: From Not To Hot – Pumpkin got custody of Alana last year

TV Shows Ace reported in May last year, that Sugar Bear and Jennifer finally agreed that Alana could live with Pumpkin. However, the proviso was that she spends time with them. Plus, if she goes to a proper school, they wanted to see her reports. Well, in the current season’s premiere, fans saw Alana meeting with her dad at a diner. Pumpkin’s husband, Josh Efird, didn’t want her to tell Sugar Bear they planned a trip for Alana to go to California.

However, Sugar Bear persisted in trying to get Alana to commit to a weekend visit with him. In the show, we saw Alana eventually tell him that they planned a trip away. He forbade it. In the next scene, fans saw Josh basically tell Sugar Bear, “too bad.” Alana lives under his roof and he’s letting her go, end of story. Of course, that got the Mama June: From Not To Hot dad hot under the collar. Plus. at her hairdresser appointment, Jennifer banged on about how she’d make a better parent to Alana.

Sugar Bear change of mind over custody

In the preview for the show, fans saw that Alana got into trouble with her sister Pumpkin for pretending to snort cocaine at school.

Well, that became a contentious issue with Jennifer and Sugar Bear who want full custody of Alana. In the preview, fans saw Pumpkin tell them that she’d “see them in court.” Pumpkin got angry with Alana for giving them a reason to try and take her away.

This all came about after June ran off with Geno and spent time gambling in casinos. Alana cried because her mom promised her she’d never leave her kids for a man. While it became common knowledge that Alana started school and lives with Pumpkin, it looks like Sugar Bear’s had a change of heart. So, in the preview for the next episode of Mama June: From Not To Hot, fans saw him and Jennifer discussing getting her back into his custody.
