The stories that have been emerging about the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo family have been disturbing, and they are undoubtedly under a lot of stress at the moment, something that has proven too much for Honey Boo Boo's father, Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson.

Honey Boo Boo's Mama June kicks Sugar Bear to the curb

According to Entertainment Weekly, a source revealed to them that Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson passed out from stress while at Mama June's house in McIntyre, Georgia, on Sunday, and an ambulance was called to the scene.

TMZ also reported the incident, saying that Sugar Bear regained consciousness before the ambulance arrived, "and was able to walk outside and greet the EMTs before they ran a bank of tests."

According to TMZ, a source revealed to them that the EMTs diagnosed the problem as high blood pressure and that Sugar Bear is now feeling better and recovering at Mama June's home.

Will Sugar Bear fight for custody of Honey Boo Boo?

It's highly possible that stress contributed to Sugar Bear's scary incident. In recent weeks, the family has been ripped apart by allegations that Mama June had rekindled her relationship with former boyfriend and convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, the same man her daughter Anna Cardwell has accused of molesting her.

The situation became even more disturbing when Mama June exposed her youngest daughter, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, to McDaniel. Photos obtained by TMZ show the trio walking down a flight of stairs with McDaniel's hand gently on Honey Boo Boo's shoulder.

Mama June fires back at the claims she's dating a convicted child molester

However, Mama June vehemently denies the claims that she is dating McDaniel although the evidence against her has been mounting. Regardless of what's happening in Mama June's love life, let's hope Sugar Bear makes sure his daughter is kept out of harm's way!
