TMZ has obtained a photo
, taken last month, of Mark McDaniel in the presence of 9-year-old Alana Thompson, Anna Shannon Cardwell's sister. June Shannon sits on a staircase as Alana's back is touched by the man who was convicted of forcing oral sex on her sister, Anna.
Shannon, better known as Mama June, the 35-year-old mother of pageant girl Honey Boo Boo, denies she is dating the man who molested her daughter.
Shannon's eldest daughter, Anna Shannon Cardwell, has confirmed to RadarOnline that she was the 8-year-old whom McDaniel was convicted of molesting. Cardwell allowed the publication to confirm her identity in relation to this horrible crime.
Caldwell says, "I believe she is seeing him and hanging around him. I’m hurt. I think me and Mama’s relationship may well be over."
Shannon had denied the allegations
that she's dating McDaniel, who spent 10 years in prison for sexually abusing an 8-year-old.... Mama June's 8-year-old to be exact. However, TMZ posted photos of Shannon and McDaniel house shopping and of Shannon buying him a car.
Shannon's other daughter, Lauryn Shannon, 14, also denied there is any current relationship between her mother and McDaniel, discarding the evidence that has surfaced online.
"My mom left Mark 10 years ago. They haven’t seen nor talked [to each other] in 10 years," she told RadarOnline, adding that the alleged photo of the two cuddling in bed is a fake: "It’s Photoshopped."
On television, Shannon comes off as a relatively caring and engaged mother and seems to genuinely care for her daughters well-being. Occasionally, her parenting decisions are questionable such as when she encourages daughter Alana to drink Red Bull before pageant performances. However, there is definitely nothing to suggest she is capable of this type of dangerous and sick behavior.
