As you may recall, a scandal erupted back in October when it was revealed that TLC reality star June Shannon was dating Mark McDaniel - the man who had recently served 10 years in prison for molesting June's eldest daughter.

Just weeks prior to that revelation, "Mama June" had broken up with "Sugar Bear" Thompson - her longtime boyfriend and the father of June's youngest daughter, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson.

In the midst of the June Shannon-Mark McDaniel scandal, a story of theft and awful parenting emerged that would've been nearly impossible to believe, had it involved anyone other than Mama June.

As it happened, there were far worse things going on in the Shannon family at that time (like June exposing her kids to a child molester, for example), so the accusations of June plundering her eldest daughter's trust fund never got much press.

In the wake of the June Shannon-Mark McDaniel scandal, many wondered why Georgia state officials would permit 9-year-old Alana Thompson (better known as Honey Boo Boo) to continue living with her disgraced mother.

We now know that child protective services informed Shannon that Alana could remain in the home only under the condition that Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson move back into the home he once shared with Mama June.

Mark McDaniel is at the center of a firestorm of controversy these days as a result of his relationship with former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch June Shannon.

McDaniel molested June's daughter, Anna Shannon, and served ten years in prison for the crime. So it's a bit surprising that June has been publicly defending McDaniel, and may have even bought him a car with money she stole from Anna.
