It’s a sad day for Honey Boo Boo fans and true romantics everywhere, as TMZ is reporting that Mama June Shannon and her “husband” Sugar Bear Thompson have called it quits.

Shannon and Thompson were “married” in a commitment ceremony last year but never actually became man and wife. 

While it was in no way legally binding, the now-infamous Honey Boo Boo wedding made for a fan-favorite episode of the TLC series based on everyone’s favorite 9-year-old pageant queen.

“We are taking things day by day, but regardless of what happens, the girls will always be our #1 priority. We want to thank y’all for your support.”
