Though “Mama June" Shannon confirmed this morning that TLC pulled the plug on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, the family is still adamantly denying reports that June rekindled her romance with a child molester ex— and daughter Anna “Chickadee” Shannon Cardwell exclusively tells RadarOnline.com that someone is out to get the tight-knit reality TV clan.
“I know for a fact it’s not true,” the 20-year-old married mom of Kaitlyn, 2, insists to Radar of the rumors. “The person behind this, all I got to say is he or she is trying to tear the family apart, which isn’t right one bit.”
“I don’t think it could be Sugar Bear,” she says.
Whoever the vicious gossip may be, “they just want nothing but attention for themselves and money and for our show to stop,” Anna tells Radar.
Sadly for the family, the person has succeeded. June confirmed this morning in a video post to her Facebook page that “there will be no more production of the show.”
“We just want to thank from the bottom of our hearts the support we’ve had from our fans,” June said.
Last night, June vehemently denied dating ex-boyfriend Mark McDaniel, 53, who as Radar exclusively revealed, was indicted in June 2003 for aggravated child molestation, aggravated sexual battery and child molestation stemming from multiple incidents involving an 8-year-old member of June’s family. (Radar has chosen not to name the victim.) The case was dismissed.
He was later convicted on aggravated child molestation charges in another case, and sentenced to 10 years in prison. He was released in March 2014.
