Mama June and her daughter, Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell, have made up since the sex scandal break-up. According to a report by TMZ, Mama June paid Chickadee over $15,000, the same amount that her daughter alleged was stolen from her account.
The Inquisitr reported in October that the mother-daughter duo were on the outs since news broke that Mama June was sleeping with sex offender Mark McDaniel. Chickadee, aka Anna Cardwell, couldn’t believe that her mother was once again dating the same man who molested her 10 years prior. More than that, she accused Mama June of spending most of the money in her trust fund, a trust fund that had been padded with $30,000 but was reduced to nothing.
When Anna asked her mother for the money, Mama June told her that only $15,400 remained in the account, leaving her daughter broke. June promised to send that amount to her daughter, but her she had not received it — until now.
Chickadee took her grievance to Dr. Phil, where she aired out personal details about her mother and Mark McDaniel, according to the Daily Mail.
The relationship with her mother was in such disrepair that Chickadee broke down crying in an interview with ET, where she expressed great sadness that her mother had allowed the sex offender to be around her baby sister, Alana.
“Knowing that she’s gonna get the kids taken away. Why, why let him.”
Mark McDaniel is a convicted felon who served 10 years in prison for aggravated child molestation. Anna Cardwell described being molested by Mcdaniel, according to the Huffington Post.
“When we first met him, he was very, very nice, treated all of us girls right. And then, all of a sudden, one day, he just rubbed my leg. And then all of a sudden, it just started progressing a little closer to my areas. And then I realized, OK, something’s going on()He started rubbing my back, getting closer up here, doing all this, and I’m like, OK, something weird is going on. I’m 8 years old. I don’t know anything about sex.”
TMZ exposed the relationship, which led to the cancellation of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Once Mama June lost the show for herself and her girls, she broke it off with McDaniel and reunited with Sugar Bear.
Now that Mama June has finally paid the money back, Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell and Mama June are said to be on the road to reestablishing their relationship. Taking it one day at a time, they have decided to move forward as long as Mama June agrees to keep sex offender Mark McDaniel out of their lives.
