Honey Boo Boo's mother June Shannon (Mama June) is reportedly dating a child molester. The morbidly obese reality TV star is currently dating Mark McDaniel, 53, a registered sex offender who allegedly molested one of her relatives.
Gossip tabloid TMZ.com reports McDaniel was charged with aggravated child molestation in 2004 for "forcing oral sex on an 8-year-old child."
From NY Daily News:
To make matters more shocking, June and McDaniel were romantically involved at the time of the crime.
The underage individual involved was not named by TMZ but it is apparently someone who still speaks with Mama June.
The mother-of-four reportedly quietly snuck away from production on the TLC reality series to spend time with McDaniel, who is listed as a registered sex offender in the state of Georgia.
The duo was seen a few weeks ago side-by-side in a photo obtained by TMZ.
"TLC is not in production on 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.' We are very concerned about this new information and are reassessing the future of the series," the network told the Daily News in a statement.
June split from her beauty pageant contestant daughter, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson's father, Sugar Bear, just last month.
