This week, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was canceled by TLC after news hit that Mama June was reportedly dating a child molester, who recently got out of prison after 10 years.

According to TMZ, however, the 8-year-old girl the man molested back in the day, was June’s own daughter Anna, who goes by Chickadee on the show.

The site reports:

TMZ broke the story … June is dating her ex, Mark McDaniel, who was released in March after serving 10 years in prison for forcing a girl to perform oral sex on him. June has been dating McDaniel since his release — something she denies despite photos and other evidence — and that’s why TLC cancelled “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.”

Sources tell TMZ … Anna Cardwell — who is now 20 and married with a child — believed her mom earlier today that she was not dating the man who molested her.  But we’re told Anna has now received a lot more info, and is now convinced June betrayed her by seeing McDaniel again.

Anna — known on the show as Chickadee — 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.

The network has reportedly reached out to Anna to offer counseling, and the show will definitely not go on despite having a whole season already been filmed.

While Mama June has denied seeing Mark McDaniel yet again via Facebook yesterday, TMZ  obtained more photos of the two house-hunting in Georgia last month.
