The increasingly upsetting drama in the family of Honey Boo Boo is getting worse. Reportedly, Mama June allowed daughter Honey Boo Boo to spend time with Mark McDaniel, her boyfriend/ex-boyfriend who is a sex offender.
On photographs taken in September, Honey Boo Boo is sitting on a staircase with Mama June. Boo Boo is touched by the hand of a man who forced oral sex on June’s another child. And that child was a year younger when she was violated than Honey Boo Boo, who is nine now.
June’s older daughter, whom McDaniel abused, Anna Shannon Cardwell, originally defended Mama June, but has since changed her statements.
“I believe she is seeing him and hanging around him. I think me and Mama’s relationship may well be over.”
