Mama June’s eldest daughter Anna Shannon told police in 2003 that she had ‘done the s word’ with her mother’s boyfriend, adding that Mark McDaniel told her he would kill her if she spoke out.

Anna also revealed that when she told Mama June about the abuse taking place, her mother refused to believe her.

McDaniel was sentenced to 10 years behind bard after pleading guilty to child molestation. He left prison in March, but worryingly has since started seeing Mama June once more.

Mark has a huge number of charges against him, including rape, aggravated child molestation and aggravated sexual battery.

Anna, who is now 20 and married with a two-year-old, said that her mum reacted badly when she told her what she had been subjected to.

‘I was like, “Mama, he did that to me and I can’t do anything about it. You were never there to see it. You were always at work.”’

Reports arose last week that Mama June was now dating McDaniel again, something which she denied in a video over the weekend.

‘I would not ever, ever, ever, ever put my kids in danger,’ she said.

But photos taken last month seem to contradict this statement, showing June and McDaniel looking at houses. and another of him touching her daughter - Honey Boo Boo, who is just nine years old.
