‘1000-lb Sisters’ Star Tammy Slaton Arrested for Marijuana and Drug Paraphernalia
1000-lb Sisters star, Tammy Slaton, has been arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia in Kentucky.
The 37-year-old reality star was charged on August 7 with one one count of possession of marijuana and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. On August 4, a Sturgis police officer responded to a compliant which led to the arrest, as confirmed to In Touch by a Union County Court clerk. The TLC star was ordered to appear in court on August 31 for her arraignment, and her pre-trial conference was set for October 5, but Slaton’s attendance was not mandatory. A pre-trial conference provides a potential opportunity to negotiate with the county attorney.
Slaton’s run-in with the law came only five days after her late husband, Caleb Willingham’s funeral. Caleb’s brother announced his sibling’s passing on Facebook, writing — “I can’t believe I’m even making this post, but today GOD called my big brother home. R.I.P. Caleb Willingham aka Killla K aka Double K aka one-half of the dynamic WWF tag team champions The W Boys aka my biggest supporter in anything I do. You will be forever loved and missed. Until we meet again.”
Slaton took to Instagram to address her husband’s death the next day, writing alongside a touching series of photos— “Rip sweet angel. You will forever be missed and loved so much thank you Caleb for showing me real love and happiness [sic].”
Tammy told People at the time — “I am devastated to share the news of my husband’s passing. He was not only my beloved spouse but also my closest confidant and dearest friend. The depth of my love for him knows no bounds.”
Slaton later put the network on blast for allegedly portraying her late husband’s funeral in a way that was “completely not natural” for the TLC reality series.
Slaton told a source that her husband’s memorial service “wasn’t that sad” despite the show’s dark narrative. The insider alleged that Slaton slammed the network for intentionally “forcing drama” to bring in ratings.
An insider alleged that Tammy Slaton said — “The filming of the funeral was ‘completely not natural’ and things were put in there to make it seem sad when it really wasn’t that sad.”
Slaton purportedly noted that “people were having fun” during the service but “[TLC producers] made it depressing.”
The service honoring the Indiana native included a small gathering of friends and family. The event took place in Kentucky, close to the reality star’s home.
The insider claimed that Tammy was concerned that cameras filming the event would make it appear that she had dropped her strict diet as she grieved the loss of her partner.
Tammy and Caleb wed in November 2022, in a ceremony documented on the “1000-lb Sisters.” The pair met and later tied the knot at Ohio facility, Windsor Lane Rehabilitation Center, but split a few months later. An insider told the U.S. Sun that Tammy was in the process of filing for divorce at the time of Caleb’s death.
