Fight it Out

Over Child Molester

Mama June
's daughter is staying firm with her mom, and attacking Uncle Poodle ... claiming he doesn't care about their family ... all he's trying to do is make a buck.

14-year-old Pumpkin went wild last night ... posting on Instagram a rant that Poodle is spreading false stories about her family ... specifically June's relationship with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel

But Poodle fired right back ... saying, "The girls will be just fine. They are upset now and will understand the gravity of the situation.  All I can do is love them unconditionally regardless of how they currently feel."

It appears June and the kids are upset TLC cancelled "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" after TMZ broke the story ... but Poodle is saying the show isn't as important as the welfare of the children.

Pumpkin says Uncle Poodle has been awful, telling her he hopes June dies a slow painful death from cancer.

Sugar Bear was polite but clear ... he's not happy that Mama June allowed a convicted child molester to get his hands on his daughter.

TMZ posted the pic of June on a staircase with Honey Boo Boo and Mark McDaniel -- the man who molested one of her other children. McDaniel has his hands on Honey Boo Boo's back.

Sugar Bear was measured, but made it clear it was not cool. He's also upset the show was cancelled.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo HomeWith "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" no more, the production crew showed up at the home of Mama June and took down the lights.

As TMZ first reported, once TLC got wind of Mama June dating a convicted child molester ... the network swiftly pulled the plug on the show. 

And now they've pulled the plug literally.

Mama June's New Man

Daughter-In-Law Says

His Past is Irrelevant

10/27/2014 9:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mama June New Boyfriend

Mama June's new man Mark McDaniel may be a child molester, but that doesn't mean he's a bad guy ... at least according to his daughter-in-law.

Peaches McDaniel tried defending her father-in-law on Facebook ... saying, "if you are going to judge someone by their past, look at your own first.  Michaels dad is an amazing man, as well amazing father."

She adds, "Peoples past are completely irrelevant to the present."

Tell that to the State of Georgia ... where McDaniel is now registered as a sex offender after serving 10 years in prison for forcing one of Mama June's daughters to have oral sex with him.

As we previously reported ... June and her man visited Peaches after she gave birth last month ... which is when McDaniel was pictured with his hands on Honey Boo Boo's back.

Sugar Bear Always Took Back Seat

To Child Molester

EXCLUSIVE

1026-mama-june-sugar-bear-tmz-01
Child molester Mark McDaniel was the Camilla Parker-Bowles in the relationship between Mama June and Sugar Bear ... and even though he was behind bars almost the entire time June was with Sugar Bear, it destroyed their relationship.

Multiple family sources tell TMZ ... June kept a box of photos of her and McDaniel in the house ... something Sugar Bear knew about and protested, to no avail.  She would NOT get rid of them.

We're told McDaniel -- who molested June's then 8-year-old daughter Anna -- was the subject of frequent arguments between June and Sugar Bear.  He felt she was still emotionally in a relationship with McDaniel ... even though he had been locked up for years.

Our sources say June was seeing McDaniel while she was still with Sugar Bear -- he got out of prison in March. The family now believes it was actually June who was cheating, not Sugar Bear, and she used the online dating story to get out of a relationship she had already rejected.
 
Sugar Bear is Honey Boo Boo's dad, and we're guessing he's not happy about the pic of McDaniel touching her ... a pic taken Sept. 9.

Mama June has not only been lying ... she's been exposing her young daughter to a child molester.

Take a look at this pic -- taken last month.  A smiling June sits on a staircase as her 9-year-old daughter, Honey Boo Boo, is touched gently by the hands of a man who forced oral sex on another one of June's children ... who was a year younger than Honey Boo Boo when she was violated.

June lashed out after we posted a pic of Mark McDaniel -- fresh out of prison -- and her in a hotel room, claiming she hadn't seen him since he was released from prison in March.

But then we posted pics of the 2 of them shopping for a house.  And then we posted a pic of June buying him a car.

But now ... here is Mark McDaniel, a registered sex offender, making contact with a young girl.

Mama June Bought Car Boyfriend

Turns out Mama June is a sugar mama ... buying the guy who molested her daughter a car.

June plunked down around $25,000 CASH at a car dealership in Macon, GA for 2 used Nissan Altimas ... an '07 and an '09. The pic shows a smiling June with her hand near the receipt.

We're told she bought the older car for someone in her family ... and the '09 for "a friend."

But we found out ... the friend's car was delivered to a home in Decatur, GA which McDaniel listed on his sex offender registration.

June's denied she has even seen McDaniel since he went to prison back in 2004. But we've already showed you pics of the 2 of them in a hotel room, and multiple pics of them house hunting last month.

Who you gonna believe ... her or your lyin' eyes?

swears she has not seen Mark McDaniel -- the man who molested her daughter Anna -- since he was sprung from prison last March ... but picture this.

TMZ got photos of June and McDaniel house hunting in Hampton, GA last month. As they stroll through the baronial property they show clear affection appearing to be hand in hand in one photo.

TLC certainly didn't believe her ... the network cancelled the show 24 hours after TMZ posted a pic of the 2 of them recently in a hotel room during a small party. 

And June's daughter Pumpkin has been quoted saying her mom was NOT seeing McDaniel. But there she is ... pictured with McDaniel's son during the house-hunting trip.

New Man Molested Her Daughter

And She Wants You to Know

EXCLUSIVE

1024-mama-june-anna-shannon-tmz-TLC-01
The 8-year-old girl who was molested by Mama June's new guy is June's own daughter, Anna ... and Anna wanted us to tell everybody.

TMZ broke the story ... June is dating her ex, Mark McDaniel, who was released in March after serving 10 years in prison for forcing a girl to perform oral sex on him. June has been dating McDaniel since his release -- something she denies despite photos and other evidence -- and that's why TLC cancelled "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."

Sources tell TMZ ... Anna Cardwell -- who is now 20 and married with a child -- believed her mom earlier today that she was not dating the man who molested her.  But we're told Anna has now received a lot more info, and is now convinced June betrayed her by seeing McDaniel again.

Anna -- known on the show as Chickadee -- wants it known she's the victim because it makes what her mom is doing all the more egregious. We're told Anna feels her relationship with her mom has been destroyed, and the only way June can see her granddaughter is if McDaniel is nowhere to be seen.

We're also told TLC reached out to Anna today to offer her counseling.

The Evidence

is On Wheels

EXCLUSIVE

1024-mama-june-tmz-01TLC has plenty of evidence Mama June has been dating a convicted sex offender who molested her 8-year-old relative ... including the fact she went car shopping for the con.

As we first reported ... Mama June bought gifts for Mark McDaniel, who got out of prison in March after serving 10 years. We're told last month June went shopping for a used car ... a car we're told she was getting for McDaniel.

We know she went to at least one dealership near her home and said the used car was for her daughter. But sources say she was secretly car shopping for McDaniel.

Our sources say TLC also got wind of this. The car, the photo we posted, and other "compelling evidence" led the network to cancel the show ... despite June's denials.
