Mama June’s Child Molester Boyfriend Might Be Her Daughter’s Father, Because This Story Has Not Hit Bottom Yet
The story of the once-beloved family starring in Here Comes Honey Boo Boo really seemed like it had hit its bottom when news came out that Mama June was dating a convicted child molester who had reportedlyÂ sexually abused one of her children, but apparently the barrel has a deeper bottom than everyone thought, because it seems like the boyfriend in question might be her other daughter’s father.
According to Jezebel, Anna Cardwell–Mama June’s oldest daughter who was allegedly raped by Mama June’s former boyfriend, Mark McDaniel–says McDaniel might be the father of Mama June’s other daughter, Lauryn, who goes by “Pumpkin.” It’s a horrifying prospect for many reasons, not the least of which is that according to court documents, Pumpkin was in the bed with McDaniel and Anna on some of the occasions where the molestation took place.
Anna says that Mama June does not know who Pumpkin’s father is, but Mama June is reportedly telling Pumpkin that Mark is her father, which is driving a significant wedge between the two sisters.
“You know, out of all the kids we have, Mama does not know who Pumpkin’s dad is,” Cardwell said. “And Pumpkin thinks it’s Mark, which kind of hurts my feelings, because Mama is making her believe that someone who did that to me is her father.”
According to Radar Online, Pumpkin is now 14 years old and Anna is 20. Despite the fact that court documents say Pumpkin witnessed some of her sister’s abuse, Pumpkin is siding with the man she believes is her father.
â€œNow Pumpkin hates me for itâ€¦ I donâ€™t really care,â€ Cardwell said. â€œMe and Pumpkin have never been that closeâ€¦ Now with her cussing me out, [saying], â€˜Screw you! F***k you!â€™Â Iâ€™m just done with it.â€
It’s a terrible, rage-inducing situation that just keeps getting worse. The most heartbreaking aspect to me is that Mama June did not believe her 8-year-old when she said she was being sexually abused.
â€œMama didnâ€™t believe me for a while,” Cardwell said. “I would say, â€˜Mama, he did it, I canâ€™t take the past back. Heâ€™s apologized for what heâ€™s done but she wonâ€™tâ€¦ Iâ€™m hurt now and I was hurt then.â€™â€
It’s just awful, and I find myself dreaming that Sugar Bear comes in and gets custody of not just Honey Boo Boo, but all Mama June’s kids, and takes them away where nobody can hurt them.
