There goes Honey Boo Boo…
According to a new report, TLC has cancelled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo in light of claims that Mama June Shannon had rekindled a romance with former boyfriend Mark McDaniels, who was recently released from jail after serving 10 years for forcing oral sex on an 8-year-old relative of June’s.
The decision to axe the show comes hours after the reality TV matriarch denied her relationship with the registered sex offender, who was convicted of aggravated child molestation.
The statement, which was posted on an official page for her 9-year-old daughter Alana, read, “I want to make a post trying to clear up the rumors remember you can’t believe everything you read! Ppl sell stories to the tabloid everyday that r false! It isn’t true I promise my kid 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 [sic].”

Obviously TLC wasn’t convinced, as they are taking a financial hit by choosing not to air an entire season that has already been filmed.
“Supporting the health and welfare of these remarkable children is our only priority,” the network said in a statement. “TLC is faithfully committed to the children’s ongoing comfort and well-being.”
