Mama June 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.
Stephen Collins' Wife
He's Unemployable Because
He's a Pedophile
10/25/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Stephen Collins' estranged wife is indignant he's bellyaching he can't get work because of that audiotape in which he confesses he sexually abused children ... Faye Grant says the real reason he can't get work is because he's a pedophile.
Collins' lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, filed legal docs saying, "Faye's decision to parade that recording ... has resulted in Stephen having no income other than investment income and pension income."
Now Grant's lawyer, legal pitbull Marty Singer, tells TMZ, "The tape has nothing to do with Mr. Collins' plight. It is Mr. Collins' horrific conduct and actions that have caused him damage."
Singer calls Collins a pedophile, adding, "It is also unfortunate that Mr. Kaplan is attempting to justify his client's conduct by diverting blame onto third parties."

10/24/2014 2:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

Ex-NBA player Jeremy Tyler -- who was just released by the Lakers -- claims his baby mama went berserk and punched their 10-month-old child last week ... and now he's obtained a restraining order against her.
TMZ Sports has learned ... the 23-year-old -- who's expected to sign a deal to play in China -- filed court docs in L.A. asking for protection from Sukey Rowan ... a British national who Tyler's been with for years.
In the docs, Tyler says Rowan got violent during an altercation at his mother's house on October 18th -- when she showed up to the home before she was expected to be there and demanded to see their child.
"I brought [the child] outside and she swung at me and tried to hit me while I was holding our son," Tyler says ... "At one point she missed me and hit our son."
Tyler continues, "My sister tried to get between us, and she kicked my sister, who is nine months pregnant, in the stomach."
Tyler says he's not only concerned for his safety -- but worries that Rowan will take the child to the U.K. and that "I will never see him again."
Despite the allegations, Tyler says "I still love Sukey, but I cannot let my son and I live in danger because of her mental issues and violent temper."
A judge granted a temporary restraining order against Rowan -- which also bars her from leaving the country with their kid.
We reached out to Rowan for comment -- so far, no word back.

Halle Berry would love for Gabriel Aubry to take a lesson from her 9-year-old co-star -- because the kid is killing it when it comes to making big money ... on his own.

Plus, he's locked into the contract for the next 6 years -- if the show lasts that long -- which means he could be a millionaire by the time he starts shaving.
Watch and learn, Gabriel ... is what Halle would say.
