According to a new report in The National Enquirer, the parents of Honey Boo Boo aren't just groan-worthy reality stars.
There was a time when they were considered law-breaking child abusers.
The tabloid claims that the Thompsons were visited by the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services in March, not long after a Toddler & Tiaras clip (below) aired of June Thompson giving her child "Go Go Juice" and roadkill for dinner.
A source tells the magazine that authorities made the unannounced visit and "found reason to bring the case to court." But a "court-appointed attorney" for the family somehow convinced the judge to "throw it out."
Now, of course, the Thompsons star on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which premiered last week to 2.2 million viewers.
Through just three episodes, the six-year old star has gone mud belly flop diving... adopted a pet pig named Glitzy... attended local food auctions with her mom... and helped June purchase more than a dozen packets of chocolate milk powder during a single supermarket visit, thanks to Extreme Couponing.
Can someone please call Family and Children Services again?
