Ugh. This story gives me the heebie jeebies.
The network is investigating the websites claims that the June Shannon is in a romantic relationship with Mark McDaniel.
The MailOnline has confirmed that the 53-year-old is a registered sex offender in the reality show’s home state of Georgia.
According to the registry Mark only got out of prison in March after he was convicted in 2004 of aggravated child molestation which is ‘when such person commits an offense of child molestation which act physically injures the child or involves an act of sodomy’.
TMZ reports that 34-year-old Mama June has been dating the convicted sex offender for the last few months, and the pair was pictured together in bed at a hotel room last month.
The website reports: ‘Prosecutors say he molested an 8-year-old child – forcing oral sex.’We’re told Honey Boo Boo’s mom has been seeing McDaniel for the last few months … sneaking away from production of the show and meeting up with him. We’re told she’s also been setting him up by buying him various gifts.’
A representative for TLC told the MailOnline: ‘TLC is not currently in production on HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO. We are very concerned about this new information and are reassessing the future of the series.’
GROSS. Just, gross. You hurt/touch a child in that manner, there is no forgiveness from me. That’s the lowest of the low. I just cannot believe this woman would knowingly enter a relationship with a person like this, especially because she has kids of her own. Young ones. She’s directly putting them in danger. Sick stuff.
