‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ Future in Doubt Following TMZ Report

TLC is “reassessing” the future of reality hit “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” following a TMZ report alleging that the mother of the girl at the center of the show is romantically linked to a convicted child molester.

In a statement, TLC said: “TLC is not currently in production on ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.’ We are very concerned about this new information and are reassessing the future of the series.”

June Shannon, mother of former child beauty pageant contender Alana Thompson who is at the center of the show, is alleged to be dating a man convicted of child molestation involving a relative of Shannon’s who was 8 years old at the time of the incident. The man was recently released from prison and is a registered sex offender in Georgia, according to TMZ.

“Honey Boo Boo’s” most recent episodes aired on TLC in August. There’s been no official word from the Discovery Communications cabler on a fifth season for the show, although Thompson posted on the “Honey Boo Boo” Facebook page in September that new episodes were slated to air in January.

“Honey Boo Boo” revolves around the lives of Thompson, Shannon (aka Mama June) and others in their hometown in rural Georgia.
