Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson from the former reality show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” reportedly passed out and needed medical attention on Sunday.
Sugar Bear collapsed in McIntyre, Georgia and an ambulance was called, with sources claiming the stress of recent events has gotten to him.
An ambulance was called for Sugar Bear on Sunday, but he was treated and released.
He was conscious again by the time the ambulance arrived and it appears medics believed high blood pressure was to blame.
The reality star, who is father to former sassy pageant queen Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson) is a diabetic and has had a number of health issues over the past year.
We’re certain all the stress and drama surrounding him contributed to the health scare.
Sugar Bear has been in the spotlight after reports surfaced that his former partner, Mama June Shannon, had reconciled with Mark McDaniel. He is her former boyfriend that was released from jail months ago. He also is the man that molested her oldest daughter, Anna.
Mama June (June Shannon) has continued to deny she was hooking up with McDaniel, but photos prove otherwise.
TLC swiftly stepped in and canceled “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”, even though a full season had already been taped and had not yet aired.
Sugar Bear and his brother, Uncle Poodle, worried that they would be facing financial difficulties over the cancellation and loss of income, but the network plans to still pay them.
Uncle Poodle has been paid and Sugar Bear will get his money too, as well as the four girls – Anna, Lauryn, Jessica and Alana, known as Chickadee, Pumpkin, Chubbs, and Honey Boo Boo.
But June Shannon apparently will not be getting her full payment, but will receive some compensation for the canceled season.
Reports indicate that the network will utilize a morals clause in Shannon’s contract to withhold a significant portion of her earnings for the last season.
