Mama June’s Daughter Lauryn Slams Uncle for ‘Selling False Stories’
The fallout continues. After the cancelation of ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ (due to allegations that Mama June is dating a man who molested her daughter Anna), another one of the TLC star’s daughters is speaking out — this time, against her Uncle Poodle.
Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon took to Instagram last night (Oct. 27) to blast her uncle for “selling false stories.”
“THIS HERE IS UNCLE POODLE AND HIS MAN. THEY ARE UPSET BC THE SHOW WAS CANCELLED AND THEY NO LONGER HAVE MONEY. THEY HAVE BEEN SELLING FALSE STORIES AND MAKING MONEY,” Pumpkin captioned a screen shot on Instagram. “HE TOLD ME EARLIER TODAY THAT HE HOPED MY MOM GOT CANCER AND DIED OF A SLOW PAINFUL DEATH. GET THIS HE IS 30 YEARS OLD TELLING A 14 YEAR OLD THIS. EVERY STORY THATS OUT RIGHT NOW HE HAS PUT OUT AND ITS ALL FALSE. HE JUST THINKS IT ALL FUN AND GAMES SELLING FAMILY OUT BUT KARMA IS A BITCH TRUST ME I KNOW HER PERSONALLY. SO IMMA SIT BACK AND LAUGH BC WHEN THE TRUTH COMES OUT YOUR F—ED.”
Though she has not explicitly stated as such, it seems as if Pumpkin is accusing her uncle of making up stories that Mama June is back with her ex, Mark McDaniel — claims that June has denied. Though June has said she has not seen McDaniel since he was released from prison (where he spent 10 years serving time for molesting Anna), recent photographs obtained by TMZ have proved otherwise. The allegations against June have not only ended the show, but have, understandably, shaken up Anna — as well as the rest of the world.
For his part, Uncle Poodle reportedly responded to Pumpkin’s rant, explaining: “The girls will be just fine. They are upset now and will understand the gravity of the situation. All I can do is love them unconditionally regardless of how they currently feel.” (Quote via TMZ.)
Disturbingly, TMZ reports that McDaniel is not “legally prohibited” from spending time with June, Alana (Honey Boo Boo) or any of June’s other children — except Anna. He has already been photographed with Honey Boo Boo.
