Over the years, Pumpkin has voiced her opinions about her mother, which are seen during this season of Road to Redemption.
In June 2022, Pumpkin was seen calling her mother “f**king terrible” for not being there for her kids.
“She’s a f**king terrible person. We all see that Mama’s not gonna change,” she said during an episode.
Lauryn then went on to claim that June ruined her sister’s 16th birthday, adding that “Alana wants her mom so bad, but it just can’t happen.”
“I don’t think June wants to come back at this point like it was,” Pumpkin’s aunt Doe Doe added.
“I mean, I hope she does, but…you know. If I was gonna put a bet on it, I would say she likes what she’s doing now.”
How is Mama June doing now?
As a result of June’s past, she lost custody of Alana to Lauryn.
“Alana made that choice to stay in that environment,” June told Page Six.
She went on to claim that there was no specific incident that led to the court granting Lauryn custody.
“People don’t understand the custody thing. It’s not like somebody ‘lost custody.’ In the state of Georgia, you do temporary guardianship every year and [Alana] had been with [Lauryn] in my addiction,” she said.
“Well, at the age of 12, you’re able to make your choice.”

“…I do see her, I do talk to her. We do communicate. So it wasn’t like any difference. The only difference is she’s not sitting right here beside me in my home every day,” June continued.
According to Page Six, June was ordered to pay Lauryn $800 per month in child support until Alana turns 18.
