It's been nearly three weeks since the world learned that June Shannon is dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, yet somehow, sad and stunning details about the situation continue to emerge every day.
Yesterday, we learned that McDaniel may be the father of Lauryn Shannon - June's 15-year-old daughter.
Today, a source has surfaced claiming that June has a long history of mental illness, and that the reality star attempted to kill herself while she was pregnant with daughter Alana, better known as Honey Boo Boo.
The claim comes from a woman named Patricia East, who is the first wife of Alana's father Michael Thompson, better known to fans as "Sugar Bear."
"Michael told me, 'Please come over! June is trying to kill herself!" East told Star magazine in a recent interview. "I wanted to do the right thing, so I went over."
