June Shannon or Mama June as she is popularly known has been making appearances on reality TV for a decade now. This is exactly why his real net worth might surprise his fans, and not in a pleasant way.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the TLCstar has accumulated a net worth of a modest $50,000 over the years. This figure is only $3,000 more than the average millennial salary, according to the US Census Bureau.
The state of his finances was revealed following a custody battle with his eldest daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efird over the legal guardianship of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson.
According to official court documents obtained by The Sun, a judge determined that Mama June’s only “certain income is disability compensation in the amount of $1,015.00 per month.” Although it is speculated that she has the potential to earn around $25,000 per month from “production and endorsements”, there is uncertainty as to whether or not her shows will be renewed in the future.
Thanks to court documents obtained by In Touch around the same time, June’s financial value was found to be around $50,000.
June was seen vacationing with her new husband Justin Stroud shortly after the decision. The verdict resulted in him losing custody of Honey Boo Boo.
The couple tied the knot in a secret wedding at a Georgia courthouse earlier this year after Stroud was released from prison. He was arrested in Boca Raton, Florida for “evading authorities for months”. The tattoo artist had an outstanding warrant for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
The couple had traveled across state lines together for months despite the Alabama mandate.
The pair also documented a recent fine jewelry shopping spree in Atlanta, Georgia on Instagram that may have more to do with Stroud’s bank account, given Mama June’s lowly net worth.
The last show of June, RRoad to Redemption: From Crisis to Recovery is currently in its sixth season and premiered this summer.
