Mama June and Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson have hit a rough patch. The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo couple have confirmed to Us Weekly that they have separated 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," Mama June tells Us in a statement. "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."

The news of their relationship woes comes on the same day that TMZ reported that Mama June kicked Thompson out after he was caught browsing online dating sites.

The TLC stars had a commitment ceremony in their Georgia backyard in May 2013. They're parents to daughter Alana "Honey Boo Boo." Mama June is also mom to daughters Pumpkin, Chickadee, and Chubbs from a previous relationship.
