Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Mama June Denies Claims She Spent Her Daughter’s Trust Funds Amid Allegations Of Child Abuse
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’s Anne Marie “Chickadee” has spoken out since accusing her mother Mama June Shannon’s previous boyfriend Mark McDaniel of child abuse. The reality star made the startling revelations last week that she believed that her mother had reconciled with the registered child sex offender and has now opened up on the scandal in a candid interview.
Mama June has since denied her daughter’s allegations while her eldest daughter Anne Marie says she’s not sure what to believe. “Mama can be very selfish,” the 17-year-old tells E! News. “She ain’t tell me she love me in a long time.” She went to on to go into detail about the alleged incidents which she claims to have taken place whe she was a child. In an emotional recollection, the reality star explained: “You’re 8 years old, you don’t know. To me, it was kinda like, oh, get off me, it hurts. Stay off and leave me alone. And I’d just go to sleep and cry.”
Discussing Mama June’s relationship with McDaniel, who went to prison back in 2004 over an aggravated child molestation conviction, Chickadee claims her mother “always loved him,” adding that: “She’s using Sugar Bear to cover her ass.” Not only that, but now she’s gone on to accuse June of withdrawing money from the girls’ trust funds; blowing money earned from their popular reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo to spend on McDaniel. “I have a feeling Mama used that money to buy a car or buy him what he wanted,” she revealed after insisting that she had been told that there was only $17.90 left from the $30,000 which had been set aside from their show earnings.
Mama June has gone on to strictly deny all of the allegations made against her, assuring E! News: “I have never brought a car for him and all her money is there, beside the money I have given her to live on—$400 every month and pay her $475 each month for cell phone bills for the last two years. That’s the only money I have taken out of there.”

Following Chickadee’s claims originally made in People magazine, Mama June insists that she and McDaniel are not back together.

Ppl sell stories to the tabloid everyday that r false! It isnt true i promise my kids r #1 priority over anything else and I would never put them in danger period over this or anything else they r my life this is my past I left him 10 yrs ago for it and I wouldn’t go back.”
