There is seemingly always a lot of drama going on in the day-to-day lives of the stars of TLC’s Gypsy Sisters, which often plays out on social media and online forums. The latest drama with Mellie Stanley is quite terrifying–accusations are flying that her current fiancé (and rumored husband) Skott Vuncannon killed her puppy by throwing it against the wall during a heated argument on Friday.
The shocking story was first reported on the Gypsy Gossip x2 Facebook page in a post that didn’t reveal any specific names. A family member later revealed that it was Mellie and Skott the post was referencing, but some commenters found it hard to believe.
Then, Mellie’s Facebook account posted this comment, denying the story and saying that the dog had died because of something it ate:
And, in case you can’t read the image very well:
What ever skott never killed no animal he was taking it outside and it ate something it should have not ate thank
Later, however, Mellie’s Facebook page confirmed that Skott did kill the puppy during an argument:
Yes Skott got angry and was going off for no damn reason because I asked him to help me pay bills and he needed to step up and be responsible and he threw my dog cause it went to bark at him and tried to bite his leg no one taking up for Skott he’s in trouble for what he done and has been charged with animal cruelty that was my innocent puppy that could have been one of my babies he’s never allowed back around me again I got a fpo and its staying that way
Mellie’s Facebook page later deleted the comment and began to backtrack a little on the story:
But he didn’t mean it the dog was suppose to be outside on its leash and it snuck in under the blanket he grabbe he blanket and threw it didn’t know she was under it
But that puppy was my life
And then there was this reply from Mellie – unfortunately, I don’t have the comment to which she was responding:
Lol it did moth balls and I gave it milk okay so no lie there
Some commenters were upset that Mellie had seemingly changed gears and was now attempting to defend Skott, and Mellie’s Facebook page–the same one that posted all of the information above about what happened–responded with this angry comment:
First off ain’t no one taking up for no one in just sick of my business being all over gypsy gossip cause the never get a story straight the put in what they want to put in yes the law is involved and so is animal control and that’s the only 2 people that should be involved
There are varying reports as to what happened to Skott. Some are saying he is currently on the run from the law, while others claim he is currently in custody and on suicide watch. One source, who reportedly spoke with the Sheriff’s Department, says Skott is wanted for questioning, and the animal warden is handling the investigation.
For those curious about the puppy involved in the alleged incident, here is a photo Mellie posted late last month when she asked fans for name suggestions:
UPDATE – Skott Vuncannon has broken his silence by posting this on his Facebook page:
Never been this type of way mentally I’m so lost I didn’t want it like this I love her I do but I need to get my mind back in the light cuz rite now I’m as dark as the nite…..I don’t not wish to speak to anyone so please nobody message I will b off fb for a while and lay in low no phone nuttin and to the ones who been there I’m sry but I’m lost for words.
That statement seems to jibe with an anonymous letter posted to the Gyspy Gossip x2 page from someone that seems to know Skott very well:
the letter sparked a huge number of comments, including this one from Mellie’s sister and Gypsy Sisters co-star Nettie Stanley:
I’m sorry I have had brothers uncles and my own kid addicted too but if never blame NOBODY man I’ve been through HELL am I an addict NO! That’s BULLSHIT! I’ve already said she’s always breaking men and setting them crazy and all this same bullshit but to blame another for your actions is NOT the answer and MELLIE didn’t make him like that the drug made him like that!
UPDATE – Randall Scott Vuncannon (yes, his real middle name is spelled with a “c”) was arrested and charged with a felony count of animal cruelty causing death.

Plus, it has been confirmed that Mellie and Skott are married!
