Reality television star Mama June has spoken out about her past addiction to meth — and she says that she and her boyfriend Geno Doak used to blow through $2500 of meth a day.
“Our habit was $2,500 a day, if not more…it was a couple ounces a day. The only reason I sold the house, we was dead f*cking broke — because you know at that point we was doing quite a bit,” June said on Mama June: Family Crisis.
She also confessed to abusing pain pills and Zanax, which is used to treat anxiety. “It wasn’t something that just started, and oh my God, I started using drugs, you found out that I got busted. It wasn’t. I got high because I wanted to,” June told daughter Pumpkin. “It’s not the first time I’ve ever done drugs, and you know that.”
Pumpkin urged her mother to leave boyfriend Geno, who has trouble staying clean. June is still with Geno and says they’re mostly being good.
