Mama June split with Geno Doak because he ‘wouldn’t get sober’… which worsened his downward spiral










‘Mama’ June Shannon confirmed on August 16 that she split with Geno Doak ‘a while ago’ and it reportedly had everything to do with sobriety.

The troubled 45-year-old ‘was drinking a lot’ and the 42-year-old reality star ‘began seeing someone else’ sometime after their last sighting in March 2020 – according to TMZ.

June had been dating Geno (born Eugene) since 2015 – a year before her 300lb weight loss following a $75K surgical makeover.

Doak ‘took the break-up hard’ and went ‘to a dark place,’ which ‘led to his hospitalization’ in Florida and rehab stint in South Carolina earlier this month.

However, the former G&J Home Improvements CEO was supposed to move to Alabama as part of a plea deal stemming from his 2019 felony drug possession case (crack cocaine), and a bench warrant was issued for his arrest last week.

Geno – who previously served time at Coastal State Prison – reportedly has a long rap sheet which includes domestic violence, burglary, theft, and criminal damage to property.

Meanwhile, Shannon ‘was sentenced to 100 hours of community service and agreed to a bunch of provisions to avoid prison time, including staying sober.’
