TLC has pulled “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” off the air after reports that family matriarch “Mama June” Shannon (right) has recently been seeing Mark McDaniel, a man she dated a decade ago who was then convicted and sent to prison for molesting an 8-year-old relative of Shannon’s.
Now the identity of said victim has been revealed. Anna “Chickadee” Shannon (middle) confirms to RadarOnline that she was the victim in question 10 years ago and that she does believe her mother has rekindled a romance with McDaniel in the wake of her divorce from Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson (left) and the wake of McDaniel’s release from prison in March.
“I believe she is seeing him and hanging around him. I’m hurt. … I think me and mama’s relationship may well be over,” says Anna.
RadarOnline also obtained the Henry County, Georgia court records, which read (warning of graphic content): “[McDaniel] did then and there unlawfully perform an immoral and indecent act which
did involve an act of sodomy to Anna Shannon with intent to arouse and
satisfy the sexual desires of said accused and said act involving the
mouth of said Anna Shannon and the sex organ of the accused.”
Mama June insists in a Facebook video that she is not seeing her previous beau. “The statement of me dating a sex offender is totally untrue. … I have not seen that person in 10 years and don’t seem to want to see that person. … I would not ever, ever, ever put my kids in danger. I love them too much,” says Mama June.
