Just when we thought the “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” family drama couldn’t get much worse…it did!
Mama June’s child molester boyfriend Mark McDaniel didn’t just molest June’s family member. It was actually her own daughter Anna!
June’s alleged relationship with the convicted sex offender has led to the cancellation of the reality show. But Mama June is still denying the reports.
It was originally being reported that Mark McDaniel molested an 8-year-old boy, but Anna (now 20) has revealed she was the victim!
Anna confirmed to Radar that she was the 8-year-old victim of pedophile Mark McDaniel, 53, in 2002 and 2003.
Anna, now married and the mother of a 2-year-old girl, believes that her mother betrayed her by dating him again behind everyone’s back.
Her oldest daughter said, “I believe she is seeing him and hanging around him. I’m hurt.”
District attorney Tommy K. Floyd wrote in Henry County, Georgia court documents that the disgraced pervert “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”.
The abuse occurred multiple times between October 2002 and March 2003.
Though the case was dismissed, McDaniel was later convicted on aggravated child molestation charges in another case in nearby Spalding County.
According to the Georgia Sex Offender Registry, he was sentenced to ten years in prison for his crime. He was released from Dodge State Prison on March 1, 2014.
Anna and Mama June, 34, appeared to have a close relationship on the reality show, but this latest incident may have been the final straw for Anna.
Anna admits, “I think me and Mama’s relationship may well be over”.
Just hours after defending her mother against the reports, Anna (Chickadee) is singing a different tune.
She initially believed her mother, but received information that convinced her that her mother has been lying.
TMZ got their hands on additional photos, which may have been the evidence Anna was shown. Not only is Mama June lying, but her sister Pumpkin also defended her mom and she is clearly shown in the photos with Mark’s son!
Talk about the ultimate betrayal!
Anna has said she will not allow her 2-year-old daughter Kaitlyn to be around her mother if Mark is around.
TLC has canceled the reality show, but Anna said executives have offered to get her counseling.
This is so sad and disgusting. No child should ever have to go through anything like that.
