    Sad news for fans of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."

    Mama June and Sugar Bear Thompson, who star on the hit TLC reality series, have called it quits, E! News confirms.

    "Sugar Bear and I have decided to take some time apart to figure out some things in our relationship," the pair said in a statement. "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."

    The pair's relationship has been chronicled on the popular reality show, which is filmed around their rural hometown of McIntyre, Ga. and features child beauty pageant star Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson as well as her three sisters: Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, Jessica "Chubbs" Shannon, and Anna "Chickadee" Shannon.

    In May, the couple exchanged vows in front of their children in their Georgia backyard, showing off their love for each other during happier times in a commitment ceremony (the two never technically married).

    "Never settle for a man who doesn't treat you right," June said at the time. "If a guy doesn't love everything about you, move on! There are plenty of other fish in the sea."
