There is photo evidence of the two chatting together in a hotel bed a few weeks ago and they were dating 10 years ago when Mark was convicted of his crimes. He was found guilty of forcing himself orally on an 8-year-old relative of June’s. And Mark is now a registered sex offender.
However, June has chosen to reconnect with Mark, allegedly sneaking away to see him and buying him gifts.
TLC reacted by quickly cancelling Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and releasing a statement: “TLC is not currently in production on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. We are very concerned about this new information and are reassessing the future of the series.”
They released a subsequent statement to Entertainment Weekly, “TLC has canceled the series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and ended all activities around the series, effective immediately.
