He recently admitted to "experimenting" with men on WE TV's Marriage Bootcamp, a rather big shock to Here Comes Honey Boo Boo fans.
However, sources claim that Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson is making this up in an effort to go along with wife Jun Shannon's attempt to get back on television.
"It’s all for show,” an insider told Radar Online.
“June is desperate for attention and to stay relevant without their reality series, and she has Sugar Bear along for the ride.”
And she somehow convinced him to expand his list of cheating partners from women to both women and men, all in an effort to stay relevant, and get paid.
"Don't bring this up with nobody else 'cause I don't want this out there: I have experimented with guys," Sugar Bear admitted on a recent episode.
“They know that bringing the drama will bring them big bucks," the insider added.
Even Sugar Bear's brother, "Uncle Poodle" (Lee Thompson) thought it was ridiculous for them to concoct such a story.
“June is starting s***,” he told Radar.
This comes after TLC canceled the series in 2014 when it emerged that Shannon was seeing an ex-boyfriend who had molested her daughter, Anna, now 22.
Shannon is currently getting as much press as humanly possible in Los Angeles, where she'll appear on Botched to remove excess skin from weight loss.
