Mama June has surely been in a complex scandal in the past few weeks. She created many headlines when it has been claimed that she had been in a relationship with a sex offender. Now, Mama June has admitted another relationship with a registered sex offender and she actually claimed that this is the real father of two of her daughters.
Mama June Shannon has opened up for the first time after her daughter Anna Chickadee Cardwell claimed that Mark McDaniel, June’s ex-boyfriend, abused her when she was only 8. Mama June claimed that she believes her daughter and now she actually said that she dated another registered sex offender. Michael Anthony Ford is the man that Mama June is talking about.
She went on to reveal that Ford actually is the father of her daughter Lauryn Pumpkin Shannon. She made these revelations in an interview with Brooke Anderson for ET. Mama June also said that she hasn’t rekindle the romance with Mark McDaniel, despite what ihad been rumored in the media. Mama June said that she has nothing to hide and actually the meeting with McDaniel was arranged so that Pumpkin could see him.
Mama June explained that her daughter Pumpkin was raised believing that Mark McDaniel was her biological father. “Since two months to almost six years, she knew nobody but him,” she said. “She was starting to resent Anna and she was starting to ask me questions. I can’t answer those questions for Pumpkin.”
“It was a conversation that she wanted her answers: what happened, why did he leave, you know, if he was her real father. He admitted to her, no. I had already told her that but, you know, she wanted to hear from both sides of the story,” Mama June also explained.
The real father of Pumpkin is currently in prison, being a convicted sex offender. Mama June also revealed that this man is the father of her 18 year old daughter Jessica. So, it seems that Jessica and Pumpkin have the same father. Mama June said that she would never do something to put her children in danger, claiming that she perfectly understands why people were outraged when they believed she was dating Mark again.
