June Shannon has stopped wearing her ring, although the couple weren’t married. They had a commitment ceremony earlier this year. Sugar Bear, or Mike Thompson, is the biological father of Alana, aka Honey Boo Boo. He is not related to the other three girls, Lauryn, Jessica, and Anna.

"Sugar Bear and I have decided to take some time apart to figure out some things in our relationship,” Shannon told TMZ in a statement. “We are taking things day by day but regardless of what happens the girls will always be our #1 priority. We want to thank ya'll for your support."

TMZ said one of the dating websites Thompson has been on is plentyoffish.com, where he’s registered as Georgiafighter31054. A profile under that name says, “i love to hunt fish and ride 4wheelers and have a good time. i luve muddy Boggs and love to ride in the mudd.”

The family, which came into fame for the reality TV show that highlights Alana’s beauty pageant life, regularly makes the news. They are watched closely, especially this week as announcement of the split makes its rounds. The UK’s Daily Mail reported that Alana was spotted at a convenience store, shoeless and buying "comfort food" because of her parents’ split.

Show fans went on Alana’s Facebook page to show their support for the family.

“We love you and your family. You have so many people praying for you. I know there are the haters, but they are the ones that will make you even more prosperous! Y'all are so strong!!” one person wrote.

In the midst of the family’s struggles, Lee Thompson, or “Uncle Poodle” on the show, announced on Twitter that he was engaged to his boyfriend.
