Reality bites back. Turns out the biological father for two of Honey Boo Boo’s siblings had a star turn on a reality show long before TLC ever shined a light on the eccentric Georgia family. She made the revelation in an interview with Entertainment Tonight in which Mama June, 35, tried to distance herself from reports that she’d rekindled a relationship with convicted sex offender Mark McDaniel. But Ford, 37, has his own blotted past. He served time for sexual exploitation of minors after being nabbed on “To Catch a Predator” in Mama June needed to set the record straight after eldest daughter year-old Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell claimed she was molested as an 8-year-old by McDaniel. I’m upset.
Mama June’s Shocking Dating History Includes Another Sex Offender!
Not so much. Celebrities who’ve survived scandal. McDaniel was convicted of aggravated child molestation in — during which time June was allegedly seeing him. Prosecutors alleged that he forced oral sex on an 8-year-old who is related to June, according to TMZ.
The mother of child pageant and reality TV star, Honey Boo Boo, is reportedly dating a convicted paedophile. TMZ reports “Mama” June Shannon has reconnected with an ex-boyfriend who was recently released from prison after serving 10 years for “forcing a girl to perform oral sex on him”. The year-old mother of four has denied being in a relationship with the man despite being photographed together in a hotel room soon after she split from her husband, Michael “Sugar Bear” Thompson in September.
The girl at the centre of the case is allegedly June’s eldest daughter, Anna Cardwell, who was molested when she was 8. Cardwell, who is now 20 and married with a young child, is known as “Chickadee” on the family’s reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. The show, which follows the lives of 9-year-old Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, her three sisters and wider family, has recently finished filming its fifth season.
TLC is now reportedly offering counselling or tutoring services to the child stars. Pumpkin [Shannon’s year-old daughter] has openly said I am not dating him and also his son. I would not ever, ever, ever put my kids in danger. I love my kids too much, that is my past.
Is This the End of ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’?
Though June has repeatedly denied a relationship with McDaniel — or even meeting him since his release from prison earlier this year — TMZ have photos of her with him on multiple occasions. Prior to his sentencing, June and McDaniel had been in a relationship; TMZ adds they allegedly remained “emotionally” involved even while he served time. One set of photos show McDaniel interacting with , and touching, June’s daughter Alana. McDaniel’s year prison sentence was for aggravated child molestation; he forced a then 8-year-old to perform oral sex upon him.
Though the specific terms of his release are unclear, McDaniel is a registered sex offender, and his close contact with a minor could well trigger a child services investigation.
TMZ’s continued reporting on Mama June’s relationship with convicted sex offender Mark McDaniel could well result in much more serious.
The reality-TV matriarch is, according to TMZ, seeing one Mark Anthony McDaniel, 53, who got out of prison earlier this year after serving nearly a decade for aggravated child molestation — molestation allegedly involving one of Shannon’s relatives. However, Mama June’s second-youngest of four daughters, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, told Radar Online that the rumor’s not true and the two haven’t seen each other for 10 years.
Georgia’s sex-offender registry says McDaniel was convicted in May and released in March, with TMZ adding that according to prosecutors he had forced oral sex on an 8-year-old child. If the two are dating, that’s not great messaging from a woman starring in a family show that involves young girls. Shannon, 35, and McDaniel have been seeing each other for a few months, according to TMZ, which posted a cozy picture of the two that was reportedly taken a few weeks ago when they and others were hanging out.
