A new report claims Mama June’s oldest daughter, Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell, has split from her husband, Michael Cardwell.
Radar Online revealed the 22-year-old told friends on her private Facebook page that the duo is currently separated. “It’s just a lot on both of us and [we] have a lot to think about. But this is only temporary right now. I love him and always will no matter where this goes,” she allegedly wrote.
Anna has since moved from the couple’s home in Alabama to McIntyre, GA, where she’s staying with former stepfather Mike “Sugar Bear Thompson and his wife Jennifer Lamb. “I told her she can stay for as long as she needs,” the newlywed told Radar. It’s unknown whether the young mom brought daughters Kaitlyn and Kylee with her.
In an interview with Life & Style following her 300-pound weight loss, Mama June revealed that she’s currently estranged from her daughter. “She’s had opportunities to get on the show and I think that for her, it’s more of ‘Okay, Mama is on TV and I’m not part of it, I’m not getting any money off of it.’ So it’s more like a jealousy thing,” the 37-year-old explained.
“We really don’t talk,” she added. “She goes through phases like that where we don’t talk and then she will want me to come meet Kaitlyn.”
Despite being back in her hometown, a family insider tells Radar, “Anna definitely won’t be getting together with June. She feels betrayed by her own mother. It’s sad.”
Part of the pair’s estrangement stems from June’s alleged romance with Mark McDaniel, who was sentenced to 10 years in prison for molesting Anna when she was a child. Anna also claims that the From Not to Hot star still owes her money for appearing on their former TLC show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
