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.

... In the NFL
10/24/2014 8:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
If you wanna be successful in the NFL ... YA CAN'T GO PARTYING DURING THE SEASON ... so says ex-NFL running back Thomas Jones.
TJ -- who played 12 seasons and once led the AFC in rushing -- was out in L.A. last night when we asked if it's possible for NFL players to turn up on their off days ... and still ball out on Sunday.
"There's no NFL party time. The game is too hard for that. It's too physical and it's too strenuous," Jones says.
Of course, there are exceptions ... Joe Namath, Lawrence Taylor, Gronk ... but Jones says most athletes have to choose -- party or football.
"I'm not saying guys couldn't do it ... but for the most part the ones that do they're not really too successful."

My Baby Mama Punched Our Baby
... And Kicked My Pregnant Sis
10/24/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
Misguided Actor Sues Landlord
In Small Claims Court
10/23/2014 12:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Val Kilmer clearly doesn't watch "The People's Court" or "Judge Judy" ... because he's about to learn a hard lesson about tenants doing home improvements.
Val was in Van Nuys small claims court Thursday ... battling his landlord over $6,000 that was withheld from his security deposit when he moved out of his Malibu rental.
The landlord claims Val made unauthorized improvements on the beach house. But Val just told the judge the landlord should give him his money back along with a big THANK YOU. The actor claims he materially improved the pad by putting some sort of wallpaper on the wooden cabinets and painted the fireplace.
The landlord doesn't like what Val did at all ... and submitted scores of pics to prove his point.
Fact is, it doesn't matter. According to the testimony ... there's a lease that says a tenant can ONLY modify the rental with the landlord's prior written approval, and apparently that didn't happen.
Val's security deposit totaled $23,500 and the landlord returned all but $7,400. The judge took the case under submission, which means in a few days Val will get a letter ... and we're guessing it won't be good news.

BTW ... check out his pickup line, comparing her to a Disney character. It's super Goofy.

Perri 'Pebbles' Reid
TLC Movie is Full of Lies
And Ruined Me!
10/22/2014 11:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
TLC's ex-manager is a conniving, dishonest businesswoman who hoodwinked 3 innocent girls -- that's how it looked in a TV movie about the group ... and the ex-manager is now gunning for justice.
Perri "Pebbles" Reid claims in a new lawsuit ... the TV flick, "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story" assassinated her character by portraying her as a liar and a cheat, when actually she invested her time and money as TLC's manager and created one of the best-selling female groups of all time.
Pebbles says the film falsely depicts her as pressuring Chilli to get an abortion ... pushing T-Boz to put the group ahead of her health ... and doling out a measly $25/wk for the girls.
Reid says the film -- which first aired a year ago and several times since -- destroyed her reputation, and she's suing for $40 million.

'Those People Are Repulsive'
10/22/2014 6:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Rose McGowan is not amused by the guy who decided to dress up as Ray Rice for Halloween -- telling TMZ Sports anyone who tries to mock that situation is downright "repulsive."
The actress was leaving the Arclight theater in Hollywood on Tuesday when we asked about the photo burning up the Internet -- featuring a man dressed as Rice carrying around a blowup doll that's supposed to be Janay Palmer.
The pic first surfaced on Reddit this month -- along with the caption, "Ladies were falling for my friend's Ray Rice costume."
Of course, Rose isn't the only star who's pissed about the situation -- but the question remains ... will the public outrage actually detour people from dressing up as Rice for Halloween??? We'll see ...
