Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star "Mama" June Shannon isn't chatting up her convicted child molester ex Mark McDaniel, her daughter Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon exclusively tells RadarOnline.com.

"They story is not true. My mom left Mark 10 years ago," Lauryn, 14, insists. "They haven't seen nor talked to each other in 10 years."

The quirky teen also insists her 34-year-old reality star mother— who split from longtime love Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson, 42, in September after she reportedly discovered he was trolling for women online— is happily living the single life.

"She is all about the kids. She only needs us girls, no one else," Lauryn explains. "We are all sticking together as one happy family with us four girls."

In addition to Lauryn and her mother, sisters Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, 9, and Jessica Shannon, 17, also live in the family's MacIntyre, Georgia home. (Big sister Anna "Chickadee" Shannon Cardwell, 20, and daughter Kaitlyn, 2, recently moved to Alabama with her new husband  Michael Cardwell.)

As for the alleged photo June and McDaniel cuddling up in bed, Lauryn swears it's a total fake.

"It's photoshopped," she says.

This morning, a report claimed June rekindled a romance with ex boyfriend McDaniel, 53, who recently served ten years in prison for molesting one of her relatives, an unnamed 8-year-old child.
