Mama June’s interest in bad boys just took a dangerous turn — as a new report reveals the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star’s new man, Mark McDaniel, was recently released from prison, where he was serving time for molesting one of June’s relatives.
In 2004, Mark was convicted for aggravated child molestation after molesting an 8-year-old by forcing oral sex, the prosecutors claim. At the time, he was dating Mama June — who is still in contact with the child.
The 53-year-old served 10 years behind bars and was released this past March, and is now a registered sex offender in the state of Georgia.
Sources say the beauty queen’s mom has been seeing Mark for the past few months — often ditching her family and the show to see him. Additionally, the site claims the usually frugal star has been “setting him up” by buying various gifts.
