Mama June, mother of Honey Boo Boo, is always making headlines for one reason or the other. However, it seems her ex Geno Doak recently tried to end his life as well. Thankfully, Mama June was there to help him after a tragic incident.

According to TMZ, Geno Doak stated that he tried to commit suicide by overdosing on pills and alcohol, but was saved by Mama June as she got him into treatment. The two are not together anymore.

Doak said that he tried to end his life back in September by chasing 90 blood pressure pills with a liter of Jägermeister while at his Florida home. Doak revealed that he was quite miserable prior to his suicide attempt as he had a lot of trouble processing everything going on in his life.

The timing couldn’t be more interesting as it was around the time when Mama June and Geno split up. Doak claimed that the breakup wasn’t why he tried to end his life, adding that it was simply the cumulative effect of untreated issues that began before June.

When he tried to overdose, a friend was at his house and called 911, saving his life. After that, he ended up in a mental health facility, following which Mama June tried to help him.

After he told her about the overdosing attempt, she referred him to a rehab center in South Carolina. Doak stated that he is going through the 12 steps and learning a lot about himself, and what put him in a “dark place.” We are glad to see Doak doing better now and hope he can conquer his demons for good.
