The ‘Mama June: Family Crisis’ star spoke to the media while promoting her new television show, ‘Mama June: Road To Redemption, saying life got so bad — she entered rehab with only a few dollars to her name.
The 41-year-old reality star had been clean for the last 14-months but was arrested for possession of drugs, and forced to face her addiction head-on after being confronted by her family.
“I would say the last year of our addiction, probably a good $900,000,” MJ told Access Hollywood.
She continued, “So much money was sent to our dope man.”
In one INSANE story, Mama June admitted she had sent her drug deal $80,000 in a single Cash app transaction. Plus, at the time she was about to enter rehab, she was awaiting a $15,000 check to ger her “last high” — but the payment was late, so she entered rehab instead.
“I went into rehab with $1.75 to my name, and I came out with nothing,” she revealed.
As we reported, Mama June’s drug addiction first came to light after she was arrested in 2019 for possession of a controlled substance, including crack cocaine with her boyfriend.
“I was around drugs my whole life,” she told the outlet. Adding, “Addiction does run in my family.”
She continued, “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.”
As for her drug of choice, Mama June says she abused meth off and on until 2015 but started doing cocaine in the past two years.
Over coming addiction is not easy, glad Mama June made it out on the other side.
