Yesterday we reported that the TLC hit series “Here comes Honey Boo” was cancelled after reports emerged that Honey Boo Boo’s Mama June was dating a convicted child molester who abused one of her relatives. Now, the identity of the relative has been revealed. It is Mama June’s own daughter, Anna!
In a statement to Radaronline, Anna exclusively revealed she was the 8-year-old victim forced to perform oral sex on Mark McDaniel in 2002 and 2003. When asked about her mother she stated, “I believe she is seeing him and hanging around him,” and “I’m hurt.” She also confesses that “I think me and Mama’s relationship may well be over,”
Initially Anna defended her mother and denied reports that June was dating Mark. However after more evidence was revealed, Anna believes the rumors are true. Mama June has repeatedly denied the allegations. On Facebook she wrote,“The statement of me dating a sex offender is totally untrue, I would not ever, ever, ever, ever put my kids in danger. I love them too much.”
Anna is now a married 20-year-old with a daughter of her own. She also previously revealed she had a difficult relationship with her mother during her childhood. Mama June had her when she 15 and left her with her grandmother. Anna had moved from her grandmother’s house just to appear on the show.
As for the convicted molester, he was released from Dodge State prison on March 1, 2014. Although his case with Anna was dismissed, he was later convicted on aggravated child molestation charges in another case.
Wow. This story is extremely heartbreaking and disturbing. If the rumors are true, as a mother how could you do that to your child?
