Last week, sources claimed that Sugar Bear Thompson would not fight for custody of Honey Boo Boo on the condition that June Shannon cut ties with Mark McDaniel.
McDaniel molested Anna Shannon - June's eldest daughter - when she was just 4 years old, and Thompson was reportedly very concerned for the safety of his youngest child.
Even so, he planned to give Shannon time to provide a safer environment for 9-year-old Alana (better known as Honey Boo Boo), in part because he didn't have a place of his own in which to raise her.
Now, Thompson has reportedly changed his mind and has begun contacting lawyers about having Alana removed from June's home ASAP.
The cause of the sudden urgency is unknown, but it may have something to do with a revelation made by Sugar Bear's brother earlier today.
Lee Thompson claims that he has photographs of Mark McDaniel in bed with Honey Boo Boo.
It was previously known that McDaniel had spent time in Alana's presence, but June and other insiders swore that there was never any physical contact between them and that all of their visits were supervised.
The knowledge that a convicted child molester allegedly slept next to his daughter might have spurred Thompson to action.
