Mama June no longer has custody of her daughter Alana. In 2019, the family matriarch was in a very bad spot with her addiction. At that point, courts awarded temporary custody of Alana to her older sister, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efird.

But as of April 2022, Pumpkin now has full custody of Alana. When the news broke about the custody arrangement, fans started pointing fingers at Mama June. They claimed she didn’t have her priorities in order and that’s why she didn’t have her daughter any longer.

But now, Mama June is speaking out and wants to set the record straight. Keep reading to learn more about the real reason that Pumpkin has custody now.

Mama June defends herself against people who say she’s an unfit mother

Page Six had the chance to talk to the family matriarch, who wanted to shine some light on the situation.

“Alana made that choice to stay in that environment,” Mama June told the publication. She alleged that there wasn’t any specific dramatic incident that resulted in Pumpkin getting custody of Alana.

“People don’t understand the custody thing. It’s not like somebody ‘lost custody,’” Mama June continued. “In the state of Georgia, you do temporary guardianship every year and [Alana] had been with [Lauryn] in my addiction. Well, at the age of 12, you’re able to make your choice.”

Even though Mama June no longer has custody of her youngest daughter, she told Page Six that she’s on “good terms” with all her kids.

“I do see her, I do talk to her,” she said about Alana. “We do communicate. So it wasn’t like any difference. The only difference is she’s not sitting right here beside me in my home every day.”

The family matriarch ties the knot

When June Shannon lost custody of Alana, she was also spending a lot of time with her new man. Reports later broke that Mama June had actually married Justin Stroud, who has a lengthy criminal history involving drug charges. Needless to say, her fans and loved ones feel pretty worried about what that will mean for her sobriety.

Meanwhile, Pumpkin went on to deliver twins. Rumor has it that Mama June has barely even been around to see the new babies.

A source close to the family allegedly told The Sun, “June has not been by to see Pumpkin or the babies since they’ve been home. She hasn’t been to their house to check on her or try to help.”
