Mama June’s daughter Pumpkin demands mom DUMP 'manipulative' boyfriend Geno & claims he's ‘bad for her sobriety’

MAMA June’s daughter Pumpkin is demanding her mom dump her “manipulative” boyfriend Geno Doak, as she claims he’s “bad for her sobriety.”

June “Mama June” Shannon left her four daughters to go on a drug-fueled bender with her boyfriend Geno Doak, as the two even got arrested for possession of cocaine in March 2019.


After June, 41, completed rehab and recently celebrated one-year sober, her daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efird is begging her mom to leave Geno. 

Pumpkin, 21, told The Sun in an exclusive interview: “It’s just aggravating because with my mama, she let the addiction of drugs go, but I do think she has an addiction to Geno. 

“Us as a whole family would just prefer her to be sober and not with Geno. When it comes to staying sober, I think Geno is bad for her because he is still manipulative in a way. I don’t feel like that’s good for her coming straight out of an addiction.”

But Pumpkin said the family has to “come to terms” with Geno “being around.”


She added: “That’s who she’s going to choose. I’m not worried about repairing things with him. I for sure want to repair them with my mom.”

Despite Mama’s decision to stay with Geno, Pumpkin said she is “definitely proud” of her mom for remaining sober. 

She said: “She actually got the help this time. I really want to see her transform into a different person mother wise. I want her to be more caring, be around more and take the sentimental moments in. 

“She’s definitely sober today, but she’s going to have to continue to prove that to everyone. I really do hope they remain sober, but I do have my doubts about both of them because they are still in that year of sobriety.”

June has remained in Florida with Geno, while her children live in Georgia. 

Pumpkin said of her mom’s decision to stay in Florida: “I do support their decision for wanting to be a little further away, especially with just being out of rehab and things like that. But I don’t want it to be like a permanent situation because that is six hours away from us. 

“If we do rekindle our relationship and make amends and work through everything, I just feel like it’s closer than it’ll be a lot easier to do.”

While June is trying to mend her relationship with her children on Mama June: From Not to Hot: Road to Redemption, Pumpkin admitted their relationship remains “very rocky.”

She said: “Even though she went to rehab and everything she is still not trustworthy as of today.”

On the WE tv show, viewers watch Lauryn juggle being a wife to husband Josh Efird, mother to daughter Ella, 3, and raise her younger sister Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson.

She admitted it is “definitely hard to balance it all.”

Pumpkin continued: "In the beginning it definitely wasn’t easy. I had to learn to be Alana’s sister in ways where I had to set rules and boundaries. But then it’s hard because I am supposed to be her sister. I’m the one she’s supposed to come over here and get away with whatever. But it’s not like that. 

“It’s definitely become more easier. I’ve gotten in the groove of trying to fix my marriage and taking care of the girls.”

Mama June previously told The Sun that she has been working hard to “make amends” with her daughters.

Mama June told The Sun: “We’re still trying to make that amends and make sure we are straight. 

“If I can’t be straight, I can’t be straight for somebody else. We’ve only been through six episodes. We’re still writing our real reality story.”

In a trailer for the current season, Pumpkin said: “She just wants us all to go back to the way things used to be, but after destroying our family, we aren’t sure we want her in our lives.

“We don’t even know if she’s still sober. I don’t know if this can ever be repaired.”

Honey Boo Boo, 15, was seen crying in one scene: “You don’t know how many nights I’ve cried myself to sleep.”

Mama said in her confessional: “I’ve got to continuously show Pumpkin that I’ve changed. 


“I guess I didn’t realize how much I’ve f**ked everybody. I want to say I’m sorry, but I need to show that I’m sorry.”

Mama June and Geno were arrested for possession of a controlled substance – crack cocaine – and possession of drug paraphernalia – a crack pipe – in March 2019. The case remains ongoing.

The Sun was the first to exclusively report that Mama June and Geno entered rehab.

They checked into a rehab facility in Florida on the season finale of Mama June: From Not to Hot: Family Crisis.

Geno admitted the two spent $150,000 in six months on crack cocaine.

Mama June said after completing rehab: “The old June is back! I’m feeling good. Being back to my old self. I am definitely an addict. Nobody can tell what six months looks like. You can only take it a day at a time.

“The world better watch out. I’m back b****es. Here we go.”

Mama June: From Not to Hot: Road to Redemption airs Fridays at 9/8c on WE tv.
