There’s been a new development in the June Shannon-Mark McDaniel child molestation scandal that might lead to more demands that June’s daughters be removed from her home.

Lee Thompson – better known as Uncle Poodle – has reportedly told The National Enquirer that he witnessed McDaniel lying in bed with June’s 8-year-old daughter Alana during a family vacation to a North Carolina casino in September.

We learned last week that Shannon had exposed McDaniel to Alana (aka, Honey Boo Boo), but June and others claimed they had had no physical contact and that all of their time together was supervised by June.

Last week, there were rumors that Uncle Poodle would fight for custody of Honey Boo Boo unless Shannon broke off all contact with McDaniel. 


Mama June has vowed to do everything in her power to prevent Poodle from winning temporary custody, but she may have little say in the matter if Poodle actually has photos of Alana and McDaniel in bed together, as he claims he does.

This is not the first accusation of abhorrent parenting that Mama June has faced this week.

Yesterday, Anna Shannon accused her mother of stealing from her to but a a car for McDaniel.
