Speaking exclusively to Radar, the reality TV star, real name Mike Thompson, insisted: “No, I never abused them kids. I loved them kids!”
Indeed, over two years of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, fans came to see Sugar Bear as a doting dad.
But suddenly, on April 10, his ex Mama June announced during a publicity tour that he’d been giving her children “emotional and physical scars” for years.
Seventeen-year-old daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon had her “eye buckle caused by him,” June claimed.
Alanna, 11, hasn’t had a relationship with Sugar Bear for “a long time,” June added in an interview with Page Six, despite the fact that their youngest child was a flower girl at Sugar Bear’s wedding to new wife Jennifer Lamb in January.
Meanwhile, June’s eldest daughter, Anna “Chickadee” Shannon-Cardwell, 22, recently moved in with Sugar Bear, as Radar reported.
McDaniel, one of June’s former boyfriends, was convicted of sexually abusing Anna when she was a child!
