June is alleged to have rekindled the relationship from 2004, when Mark McDaniel was convicted and sentenced to 10 years for forcing oral sex on Anna who was only 8-years-old at the time. It has been alleged by multiple sources to TMZ that June has chosen to resume the relationship with the man who sexually assaulted her daughter. Sneaking off to see him, and even shopping for a used car to give him as a gift.
Anna, 20, now married with her own child, Kaitlyn, 2, has stepped forward and revealed herself as the victim of June’s alleged boyfriend.
June, 34, and Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, 14, both adamantly deny the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch is in a relationship with the convicted predator. June says she loves her kids too much to put them in danger… again… and Lauryn says recent photos of June and Mark in bed together “were photoshopped.”
Anna is telling friends, she thinks June is telling lies. That June is dating the man who molested Anna and lying about it to cover it up. As such, insiders say, her relationship with her mother has been damaged. TMZ reports, “Anna wants it known she’s the victim because it makes what her mom is doing all the more egregious. We’re told Anna feels her relationship with her mom has been destroyed, and the only way June can see her granddaughter is if McDaniel is nowhere to be seen.”
TLC cancelled the show today. They also “reached out to Anna today to offer her counseling.”
