Mama June and Sugar Bear Thompson ended their relationship after reports of online cheating surfaced.

It appears as if Mama June and Sugar Bear's love has come to an end just months after the pair held a commitment ceremony to seal their relationship. Shortly after removing her wedding ring, Mama June released a joint statement with Sugar Bear to confirm their split.

"Sugar Bear and I have decided to take some time apart to figure out some things in our relationship," the statement read. "We are taking things day by day but regardless of what happens the girls will always be our #1 priority. We want to thank ya'll for your support."

Mama June apparently caught Sugar Bear perusing through online dating sites several times, and even discovered he had a profile in which he said he was looking for a long-term relationship. The couple, who is not technically married despite their May wedding ceremony, became famous through their reality show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which chronicles their life and their beauty-pageant child star, Honey Boo Boo.

When Mama June and Sugar Bear exchanged vows in their Georgia backyard, they were apparently very happy together and Mama June was convinced Sugar Bear was the one for her. "Never settle for a man who doesn't treat you right," she said at the time. "If a guy doesn't love everything about you, move on! There are plenty of other fish in the sea."

In light of the couple's break up, E! News reported that Mama Bear is planning on moving the kids out of their Georgia home and go live closer to their relatives once filming for their show is completed. Besides Honey Boo Boo, Mama Bear has three other daughters from another relationship: Pumpkin, Chickadee and Chubbs.

No word on how producers plan on proceeding with the show without Sugar Bear for the upcoming season.
