Mama June Says Her And Boyfriend Spent Nearly $1 Million On Drugs In a Year

Whew! Mama June Shannon and her boyfriend Geno Doak apparently spent nearly $1 million on “dope” at the peak of their drug addiction.

According to Page Six, Shannon told Access Hollywood that the two spent the seven-digit amount.

“I would say the last year of our addiction, probably a good $900,000,” the TLC star told Access Hollywood on Wednesday. “So much money was sent to our dope man.”

She also admitted that at one point, she sent her drug dealer $80,000 in a single Cash App transaction and was waiting on $15,000 to get her “last high.” But since the payment was late, it never happened, and she went to rehab instead.

“I went into rehab with $1.75 to my name,” the “Mama June: Road to Redemption” star said. “And I came out with nothing.”

The 41-year-old TLC reality star has been clean for 14 months and has to “learn those old hustles” to earn money since production was paused during the pandemic.

“It’s so much easier for me to say, ‘Hey, I don’t want to feel this,’” she said, adding, “I don’t want to go back to that. I don’t want to have my bank accounts overdrawn.”

Shannon’s substance abuse problem came to light in 2019 after she was arrested on suspicion of felony possession of a controlled substance for crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia, the outlet reports.

“I was around drugs my whole life,” Shannon explained to Access Hollywood’s Kit Hoover, citing her sibling’s own struggles. “Addiction does run in my family.” She also said she used meth on and off until 2015 but then started doing cocaine two years later.

“In this industry, it’s kind of crazy that until you get busted it’s okay, and I think that is the wrong way to be, but it is — it’s true,” she said. Shannon lost 300 pounds but has since gained back 70 pounds. She says she’s focused on her sobriety.

“You miss so much,” the mother of four said. “My kids stopped talking to me…so now our thing is that we’re trying to redeem our kids and it’s been a process. Addiction is selfish, but my recovery is selfish also.”
