Mama June, 'Honey Boo Boo' Star, Rebounding From Sugar Bear With Convicted Sex Offender
Mama June, the matriarch on TLC reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, has reportedly rekindled a romance with ex-boyfriend and convicted sex offender Mark McDaniel.
Mama June Dating Child Molester?
Mama June, 35, was recently pictured with former flame, Mark McDaniel, 53, who was convicted of aggravated child molestation in 2004 – when Mama June was previously dating him, reported TMZ. The child, then 8, that McDaniel was convicted of molesting, is a relative of June’s. McDaniel was accused and found guilty of forcing oral sex on the child who has not been identified.
McDaniel was released from prison in March after serving 10 years on the molestation charge and is now a registered sex offender in Georgia. June has reportedly been dating him for the last few months, stealing away from production on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo to see him, and buying him gifts.
Following the report about June, who is mother to four daughters, TLC released a statement to reveal that the network is uncertain if it will be moving forward with more seasons of Honey Boo Boo. It wrapped filming season four back in August.
"TLC is not currently in production on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” TLC said in its statement. “We are very concerned about this new information and are reassessing the future of the series."
Last month, news broke that June and Sugar Bear had split after several years together and having a commitment ceremony in 2013.
