According to new reports, Mark McDaniel destroyed June Shannon and Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson’s relationship, even though the child molester was behind bars almost the entire time June was with Sugar Bear.
June Shannon was keeping a box of photos of her and Mark McDaniel in the house, something Sugar Bear knew about and protested, to no avail, TMZ reported. However, Mama June would not get rid of them.
Mark McDaniel molested June Shannon’s daughter, Anna “Chickadee”, when she was just 8-year-old.
Sources close to the family told the gossip website that Mark McDaniel was the subject of frequent arguments between June Shannon and Sugar Bear. He felt she was still emotionally in a relationship with Mark McDaniel even though he had been locked up for years.
It appears June Shannon was seeing Mark McDaniel while she was still with Honey Boo Boo’s father after McDaniel got out of prison in March. The family now believes it was actually June who was cheating, not Sugar Bear, and she used the online dating story to get out of a relationship she had already rejected.
