Mama June's Daughter Finally Speaks Out on Child Molestation Scandal

Mama JuneThe Honey Boo Boo clan is circling the wagons to defend Mama June from the scandalous charge that she's dating a man who spent 10 years in prison for child molestation. TMZ had posted a picture of June Shannon lounging on a bed with former boyfriend Mark McDaniel, who was once convicted of "forcing oral sex on an 8-year-old child." The child is reportedly related to Shannon but it's unclear how. And reportedly, June and Mark were dating at the time this happened. So how could she go back to him??!!


But at least one member of the family has come forward to debunk the shocking rumor, saying that no way is Mama June back with a child molester and that the picture TMZ ran must be "photoshopped."

Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon told RadarOnline:

They story is not true. My mom left Mark 10 years ago. They haven’t seen nor talked [to each other] in 10 years.

Pumpkin insists that June isn't seeing anyone right now -- that she's all about family and hanging out with the girls.

If the photo is fake, that's an awful thing to have happen to June! A rumor like this could destroy her career, such as it is. In fact, when the rumor broke, TLC sounded suspiciously like it was considering cancelling the show, saying:

We are very concerned about this new information and are reassessing the future of the series.

But who would fake this? And why? Remains to be seen what the truth is. Mama June needs to clear this up once and for all.

Do you think she is or isn't?
