Things aren’t looking good for the cast of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Yesterday, news broke that Mama June Shannon, the show’s matriarch, was dating Mark McDaniel. McDaniel reportedly served a ten-year jail sentence for child molestation. What’s worse, he’s convicted of molesting a child in Shannon’s family while the two were dating many years ago.
After getting wind of the reports, Mama June took to daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson’s Facebook page to clear things up.
“I want to make a post trying to clear up the rumors,” she wrote. “Remember you can’t believe everything you read! Ppl sell stories to the tabloid everyday that r false!”
Shannon added that her daughters are her top priority and she would “never put them in danger, period.”
In conclusion, she says she “left him 10 yrs ago for it and I wouldn’t go back.”
Mama June’s not the only one denying the dating rumors. Her 14-year-old daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon told Radar Online the “story is not true.”
TLC has reportedly canceled the hit series due to concerns over Mama June’s actions.
Mama June has responded to the shows cancellation and dating claims in video Facebook post.
