MAMA June oldest daughter, Anna Cardwell, says she is concerned with her mom’s relationship with 24-year-old TikTok influencer Jordan McCollum, who has detailed his struggles with sobriety on the platform.
Anna spoke exclusively with The Sun and expressed her worries about the reality star’s new friend.
“If he starts using again, that’s not healthy for Mama and he’s only 24-years-old. Mama needs to calm down and focus on herself,” Anne said.
The 26-year-old mother to two of June’s grandchildren said that beyond the age difference, she is also concerned about how recent Jordan’s latest sobriety stint is.
She added: “He doesn’t have a lot of time on him. If he relapses, I hope he at least does it away from her. She’s on probation, and if she fails a drug test at any time she will go back to jail.”
Anna said that beyond her concerns for June’s wellbeing, she is also very concerned about how her mother’s addiction has impacted their family – and specifically her sisters Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efird, 21, and Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, 16.
Anna explained: “She just got back with seeing Pumpkin again and Pumpkin’s new baby. I just don’t want it to mess up Pumpkin again.
“Alana was upset when Mama was messed up, but Pumpkin was pissed.”
To make things more complicated, Anna points out that although June keeps calling the young man her best friend, she’s afraid of Jordan’s motives, and her mother’s true feelings for him.
“She probably thinks she’s just his best friend- but she probably wants more,” Anna said, and added that she doesn’t believe a heterosexual man and a woman can really be just friends
She noted: “It looks like he just wants money. He’s been begging for money all over TikTok.”
As The Sun previously reported, June purchased a 2013 Nissan Altima for Jordan and then a 2019 model after the first car broke down, an insider claimed.
Jordan had bragged about the pricey new gifts- which the source said cost a total of about $40,000- on his social media pages.
In one TikTok post, Jordan boasted: “So someone very special to me bought me a car today!”
Jordan added a purple heart and a cute face emoji to the July 17 post, in which he shared various snaps of the 2013 Nissan.
He shared a photo of the newest car in a post on August 2 and explained: “Late update but Sally had a bad transmission so everyone meet Spade!”
In that post, Mama left a comment with a slew of red hearts that read: “You deserve it, and that’s a sexy car.”
Meanwhile, the source said that Jordan is living in a two-bedroom home on a cul-de-sac rented by June that she also furnished for him.
MAMA’S MOVED ON
June recently announced that she had broken up with her longtime love Geno, just as he began serving his sentence on drug charges.
“Geno has been out of my life for a while now,” June said on Instagram Live.
However, June has had her own run-ins with the law.
The exes were arrested outside of an Alabama gas station for crack cocaine possession in March 2019.
Previously, The Sun exclusively reported that Geno had been sentenced to 16 months for the crime after June avoided any jail time and received community service instead.
