Mama June has gone through a lot as 2023 came to an end. She had to deal with a lot of turmoil as her daughter Anna Cardwell passed away while battling cancer. While it was emotional for all the family members, they also had to put a lot of things into consideration. One of them was how would look after Anna’s daughters, Kaitlyn and Kylee.
There had been news about Kylee’s biological father, Michael Cardwell, fighting for Kaitlyn’s custody, too. He has been locking horns with June Shannon to win this battle. Now, there is speculation going out about the same. That’s because many feel that the main cast member may have lied in court for the sake of Kaitlyn’s custody! So, is it true?
Mama June: Did Shannon Lie In Court? Says She Didn’t Get Served With A Lawsuit!
It has not been long since Mama June fans found out about Anna Cardwell’s demise. While everyone was mourning about the same, another intense thing happened. Soon, the departed soul’s ex, Michael Cardwell, came into the limelight. It happened after he slammed his ex-mother-in-law with a lawsuit to gain custody of Kaitlyn.
As per TheSun, he served June with a lawsuit on December 17, 2023. In fact, there was also an official who confirmed the same. A court filing read that a sheriff’s deputy had written that he himself served the defendant “personally” with a copy of the same. In fact, the header of the document also mentioned the date being December 17.
But Mama June has been saying that no one served her the lawsuit until December 22, i.e., 5 days later. In fact, she first heard about Michael suing her from the headlines. Then she came up with her own lawsuit arguing that she should have “permanent custody” of her granddaughter, Kaitlyn. As per the latest update, she currently has her “temporary custody.”
Moreover, in her lawsuit, Shannon was in denial about having knowledge about other claims of Kaitlyn’s custody. The strange thing is that Michael had sent her the lawsuit a day before she revealed her side of the story.
Mama June: Michael Cardwell Aims To Fight For Kaitlyn’s Custody, Spent Christmas With Her
At first, Anna Cardwell and her two daughters, Kaitlyn and Kylee, were living with her boyfriend at the time, Eldridge Toney. But it didn’t feel right to let the latter raise the girls after their mother’s passing. That’s when Mama June was in hopes of their custody. But Anna’s ex and Kaitlyn’s father, Michael, entered the scene.
Considering how Shannon had a drug history and ended up giving Alana’s custody to Pumpkin, Michael didn’t find her to be the right person for this responsibility. So, that’s how he slammed the reality TV star with a lawsuit. While Anna’s ex is not Kaitlyn’s real father, he loves her just the same and has been a father figure in her life.
Fans also spotted Michael and Kaitlyn spending quality time with eachother. There was a thread on Reddit that had their latest pictures, and viewers hoped the former ended up getting her custody and not Shannon. Keep an eye on TV Season & Spoilers for all the latest Mama June updates.
