Jessica Shannon Said Her Mom Pawned the Title to Her Car & Caused it to Get Repossessed
Jessica Shannon, one of Mama June’s daughters, made accusations on the show that her own mother pawned the title to her car. That caused her car to be repossessed, she said in a clip of “Mama June: From Not to Hot.” According to Soap Dirt, Mama June co-signed for her daughter’s car, which made her a part owner of the vehicle.
TMZ reported in January that June Shannon pawned her diamond ring for $1,500. The offer seemed to be a “low ball” offer, the outlet reported. It was the first offer she got from the pawn shop after a brief examination and a quick stop to the shop. She sold the ring to Cash America in Stockbridge, Georgia, according to TMZ.
“As for the ring … it’s possible it’s the one her boyfriend, Geno Doak, gave her in March 2019 on her most recent TV series, ‘Mama June: From Not to Hot,'” the outlet reported.
Mama June currently has a strained relationship with her children, including Jessica. June wrote on Instagram she is not speaking to her kids.
