I proposed to him this past weekend and he said YES!” In another tweet, Uncle Poodle, who was diagnosed as HIV-positive in 2012, gushed: “Damn I love this man, the love of my life and now fiancee, Alan I love you!”
Just last week, Mama June told Us Weekly in a statement that she and Sugar Bear have decided to split, 16 months after their commitment ceremony. “Sugar Bear and I have decided to take some time apart to figure out some things in our relationship,” she told Us. “We are taking things day by day, but regardless of what happens, the girls will always be our number one priority. We want to thank y’all for your support.”
