Anna Cardwell Believes Her Sisters Are in Danger, Says Mama June is “Using” Sugar Bear
The 20-year-old reality star was thrust into the controversy when she came forward as the victim in Mama June’s then-boyfriend Mark McDaniel’s sex abuse scandal. Now she’s looking for justice, not only with her mom, but with anyone who’s ever been affected by molestation.
“You’re 8-years-old, you don’t know,” Cardwell opens up to E! News about the alleged incidents between her and McDaniel when she was a child. “To me, it was kinda like, ‘Oh, get off me. It hurts! Stay off and leave me alone.’ And I’d jut go to sleep and cry.”
Host Catt Sadler thanked her for sharing her story as it would likely help and comfort a lot of other people who have one through a similar experience.
Anna responded, “[That’s what] I hope. That’s my thing.”
So how did her mom react to the accusations? Has she shown her extra love? “Mama can be very selfish,” Cardwell explains. “She ain’t tell me she love me in a long time.”
“She’s always has,” Cardwell expains. “He loves her and Mama loves him.”
She adds, “Apparently now she is getting back with Sugar Bear. Mama’s basically using Sugar Bear… She’s using him to cover her ass.”
Since Sugar Bear is strapped for cash, it makes sense that he’d play along with the facade for some extra money–Not to mention, it keeps him closer to his daughter and keeps her away from McDaniel.
And speaking of money, Cardwell reveals another wild surprise that the money all the kids have made on their TLC show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo–which was supposed to be put away in trust funds for them–no longer exists. Anna believes it all went toward Mama June’s spending on McDaniel.
