She is best known for her TV shows Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and the later series Mama June: From Not To Hot.
June has four children: Anna, 24, Jessica, 22, Lauryn (Pumpkin), 19, and Alana (Honey Boo Boo), 13.
Police were called and alerted by concerned citizens that two people were involved in a ‘confrontation.’
The couple has been together for three years.
In the season 2 finale of Mama June’s show ‘Not to Hot,’ she laid down the law and said it was either engagement or the highway.
Her last boyfriend, Mark McDaniel, served 10 years in prison for molesting June’s then 8-year-old daughter Anna.
A March 2003 report, seen by RadarOnline, revealed how Anna ‘Chickadee’ Shannon told authorities in Spalding County, Georgia that she had done the ‘S word’ with McDaniel.

She also told police that her mother’s boyfriend touched her inappropriately, made her touch him inappropriately and forced her to perform a sex act on him. When she told him to stop, he would not.
Anna, who appeared on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo with her mother and siblings, has since revealed that when she first told her mother about the abuse, Mama June refused to believe her.
McDaniel was sentenced to 10 years behind bars after pleading guilty to child molestation. He left prison in March 2014 and then started seeing Mama June again.

The abuse came to light after Anna told her elementary school teacher that her stepfather had assaulted her. She was able to describe the assaults in graphic detail, the report notes.
The molestation was carried out multiple times between April and October 2002, according to the report.
It took Anna months to speak out about the abuse because McDaniel had threatened to kill her if she told, RadarOnline reported.
‘Anna stated that Mark told her not to tell because he would not like her anymore,’ Beach continued. ‘Anna advised she got tired of holding it in and had to tell.’
Speaking to the National Enquirer in 2012, Anna’s ex-boyfriend said: ‘Anna told me that McDaniel threatened that if she ever told her grandparents what happened to her, he’d kill them and her.’
June lost 200lbs when on the show Not To Hot. She did so with the help of surgery, exercise and a change in diet.
But in August she said she had gained 50lbs back.
‘I was 350 pounds to 150 pounds and now I’m back up to 200 pounds. People just need to learn who they are,’ she said.
