According to The Augusta Chronicle, those who committed sex offenses prior to June 4, 2003, are not subject to the 1,000-foot restrictions on living near places that provide services to minors (e.g., schools, libraries, etc.). We’re told Honey Boo Boo’s mom has been seeing McDaniel for the last few months … We’re told she’s also been setting him up by buying him various gifts. “I want to make a post trying to clear up the rumors remember you can’t believe everything you read!” she wrote on daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson’s page.

“Anna…stated that her sister, Lauryn, is in the bed with them when this is going on,” the policeman wrote in the incident report. According to a “very graphic and disturbing”  police report obtained by US Weekly, McDaniel (53) raped and molested Anna (now 20) in June 2002, and  forced Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, now 17, to watch. It may have come as a huge shock to viewers, but it turns out the plan for the latest episode of Succession had been brewing for some time.

Despite June’s denials,TMZ report that child services and the local Sheriff’s Department were notified of the reports shortly after the website first broke the story. As The Sun first exclusively revealed last year, the 16-year-old reality star has been in a relationship with college student Dralin Carswell since the start of 2021. ALANA Honey Boo Boo Thompson’s boyfriend, Dralin Carswell, 21, was arrested and accused of statutory rape before his romance with the 16-year-old reality star.

Their mother Kelly admitted to having spent approximately half a million dollars on her daughters’ lives as beauty queens. At four years old, the girls had $80,000 dresses, a bodyguard, and a tour bus with their faces decorated across the exterior. Madison “Tootie” Berg was older than most of her competitors during her pageant days, but what really stood out was her diva attitude.

He was later charged with aggravated child molestation and sent to jail for 10 years. He was released in March and not long after, allegedly started seeing Mama June on the regular. It’s been a turbulent week for the Thompson family of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo fame. Reports that the family’s matriarch, Mama June, is dating registered sex offender Mark McDaniel have surfaced, causing their hit TLC series to get cancelled. On Friday, TLC dropped the reality show after TMZ posted photos that showed Shannon with McDaniel, who was released from a Georgia prison in March after serving a 10-year sentence for aggravated child molestation, according to records. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’s “Mama June” Shannon took to her daughter’s Facebook page early Friday, Oct. 24, to deny reports that she is dating a convicted child molester, saying she was romantically linked to the man 10 years ago.

Honey Boo Boo (born August 28, 2005) is a cute and chubby TV reality star who has won the heart of millions with her enthusiastic and entertaining nature. As filming began for the 1st season of Alana’s own show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services reportedly nearly brought production to a halt. However, it was not for the consumption of sugary, energy-boosting juices; their presence was actually in response to a video of Alana dancing atop a college bar for money. TLC is now reportedly offering counselling or tutoring services to the child stars. The show, which follows the lives of 9-year-old Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, her three sisters and wider family, has recently finished filming its fifth season.

But she could not confirm any ongoing investigations because of privacy laws. Mama June posted a “truth video” on Facebook Friday in which she denied she’s seeing McDaniel, and added, “I would never, ever put my kids in danger.” Like most of the adults featured or even just mentioned on TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Jessica “Chubbs’” father, Michael Anthony Ford, also spent some time behind bars before the family gained reality star fame.

Though it never enjoyed the ratings bonanza of contemporaries like Duck Dynasty, it was a huge performer for the network. In summer 2012, when attention may have been at critical mass, a single telecast even out-rated most networks’ individual coverage of the Republican National Convention. Speaking of her younger self versus herself now, Thompson told Teen Vogue, “They are completely two different people. I would say that I do like this Alana now, rather than the younger Alana.” In late September 2021, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson shared on Instagram a photo of herself holding hands with someone later identified as Dralin Carswell. News notes the photo has since been deleted, the internet never forgets, and fans wanted to know more about Honey Boo Boo’s apparent bae.

Alana Thompson also doesn’t find much of the “body positivity” movement to be genuine. Speaking with Inside Edition, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson revealed that her favorite subject in school is “probably science.” Fitting, given her desire to be a neonatal nurse, according to her profile in Teen Vogue. According to the magazine, she is a lot like other teenagers in other ways, too, saving up for her first car and trying to get good grades among them. She told Teen Vogue, “I want to be the best I can be, and I want to make my money, and I also want to make straight A’s, so I just try my hardest.” If Mama June’s financial and legal troubles give you pause, have no worries. Honey Boo Boo briefly discussed her relationship in August 2021 in an interview with Teen Vogue, where she heartbreakingly disclosed that she doesn’t have any friends besides her boyfriend.

The reality TV star went on to say that her four children are most important to her than any other relationship. “I would never put them in danger period over this or anything else they r my life.” TLC has CANCELLED “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” TMZ has learned, in the wake of our story that Mama June is dating a convicted child molester who sexually abused one of her relatives. HONEY Boo Boo’s adult sister Anna Marie “Chickadee” Cardwell has spoken out about her claims that she was molested by convicted sex offender Mark McDaniel.

In June 2003, he was indicted for aggravated child molestation, aggravated sexual battery and child molestation related to several incidents involving a member of then-girlfriend June’s family, aged eight, though the case was dismissed. TLC confirmed to MailOnline on Friday that the hit reality series has been cancelled and the network will not air the fourth season that was already filmed. The site obtained a photograph allegedly showing the pair sitting on a bed in a hotel room. At the time, McDaniel was charged with rape, child molestation, aggravated child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes and aggravated sexual battery. McDaniel was sentenced to 10 years behind bars after pleading guilty to child molestation.

Still, as of this writing at least, it would appear that Bartello’s days of standing out amongst the crowd may be behind her. Although she became a YouTuber with a focus on fashion, beauty, and lifestyle with 326 followers, her channel no longer appears to showcase any videos. The former pageant star has also kept her social media locked down tight — still, she boasts around 10k followers on her private Instagram, so she’s clearly popular enough without the added attention of public profiles. By the time she was six years old, Barrett had retired from the pageant world and became a millionaire — with the help of her parents gifting her a $25,000 allowance per week, of course. Her likable TV personality gained her a big online following and fanbase.
