ALANA Thompson’s father Sugar Bear reveals he has been secretly battling a “medical crisis”, in the teaser for this week’s Mama June: From Not To Hot.
The father-of-one is married to current wife, Jennifer, but admits he has been lying to her as footage shows him entering the Solutions Surgical Center in Georgia.
He said: “I hate lying to Jennifer, but I can’t eat, can’t sleep.
“I feel like I am in the middle of a medical crisis.”
Sugar Bear – real name Mike Thompson – married Jennifer in 2017 but she later called for him to have a paternity test as she did not believe Alana was his daughter.
The DNA test ended up coming back inconclusive.
Fans, however, recently saw that Alana has been left in bits fearing she’s a “burden” to her troubled mom and family in the latest explosive episode of Mama June: From Not To Hot.
The child star went to see professional medic Dr. Ish after she was seen pretending to snort cocaine on an Instagram Live video last week.
The action was all the more pertinent as the 14-year-old’s parent, Mama June, has a drug problem and was arrested for possession of crack cocaine in March 2019.
Mama June, 40, is currently estranged from Alana and the rest of the family and headed away with her new man – making the teen’s struggles all the worse.
When Dr. Ish quizzed her about the video in front of her sister Pumpkin, Josh and Doe Doe, she broke down crying.
She said: “I’ve been holding everything in because I don’t know who to talk to. I don’t know what to do. Everything has been so stressful lately.
“I don’t have my mom.”
After the video, Alana said she was scared she would be taken away from Pumpkin and Josh.
Alana said: “I like it where I am. All of it is good. I get to wake up everyday and see Ella.
“I get to be happy all the time because I’m somewhere where I want to be. You make me happy! If I wasn’t with y’all I wouldn’t know what to do.”
She then candidly told of her fears she’s a burden on Pumpkin and Josh, who strongly assured her she isn’t.
