Friends … what a few weeks have passed for June Shannon!
First, as previously reported, the veteran reality star actually got married a few months ago, went to a Georgia courthouse and exchanged vows with her boyfriend Justin Stroud since October.
Almost as soon as Shannon becomes a wife, however?
She stopped being a mother.
Sort of, that.
At a hearing last April, a judge granted June’s youngest daughter, Alana, the sole custody of her sister Lorin, according to court documents first obtained by The Sun.
The 16-year-old has been living with his older brother since their mother was arrested for possession of cocaine in March 2019.
In the months that followed, June and her then-boyfriend, Zeno Doak, spent almost all of their money on drugs, staying out of hotel rooms, and visiting various casinos in Alabama in other states.
A few weeks ago, however, a judge made this unusual arrangement official, simply saying in court:
“It is in the best interest of the child that the plaintiff be given sole custody.”
The judge ordered Lorin to pay $ 800 monthly for child support from May 1, 2022; And continues on the first day of each month until Alana turns 18 years old.
Alana, of course, helped her mother become a real television sensation when she starred as a contestant in the children’s beauty pageant Hear Comes Honey Boo Boo.
As part of this judge’s ruling, meanwhile, Shannon’s salary was made public.
We can now confirm that she earns $ 25,000 a month from her WeTV deals and her various promotional deals.
According to the judge, Lorraine (who goes by the nickname “Pumpkin”) now has the right to decide on the day-to-day care for Alana … and her sole decision-making power over major decisions.
In addition, it would be prudent to allow the mother of four children, aged 22, to visit “Abadi” [June] And minors [Alana]”
Lorraine and her husband also welcomed the twins earlier this month.
In her family with Alana, Lorraine is caring for her 10-month-old son Bentley; Daughter Ella, 4; And a pair of newborns.
It would be nice if June could take action and help, don’t you think?!?
Shannon, however, is busy enjoying life as a newlywed.
“We’re here today to clear up some rumors,” Jun and Justin said in a joint video Wednesday. “[We] The market is closed, friends. You know, when you know, you know. “
Earlier, Mama June hit the 34-year-old mechanic as follows:
“Justin is an amazing person and he understands everything he’s going through,” he told The Sun shortly after the couple went public with their romance.
“I’ve been able to share with her things I’ve never been able to share with other people – not even my kids and so it’s really nice to have this partnership.”
