'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' Canceled: Sugar Bear, Uncle Poodle Are 'Bitter' And Want Their Money From TLC
Sugar Bear and Uncle Poodle want their money.
The stars of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo are angry over the cancellation of the TLC show, especially because they haven't been compensated for the episodes they just filmed, TMZ reported.
The episodes were filmed over a six-month period and the family was supposed to be paid when the show aired.
Sources told the website that Sugar Bear can't pay his rent and is "bitter because he did nothing wrong." Additionally, the 42-year-old reportedly doesn't have any money saved up because Mama June took all the earnings and only offered him an allowance.
Uncle Poodle, who claims TLC still hasn't contacted him, is just as angry over the situation.
TLC canceled the popular show last week after news broke that Mama June was dating sex offender Mark McDaniel. The 53-year-old was convicted in 2004 for molesting Mama June's daughter, Anna Cardwell, when she was 8 years old. June was also dating him at the time of his conviction. After serving 10 years in prison, McDaniel was released in March and is now on Georgia's list of registered sex offenders.
Despite recent photos that caught McDaniel and Mama June together, the 34-year-old denied the relationship.
"Just got a phone call this morning from TLC and as of right now there will be no more production of the show," Mama June said in a video posted to Honey Boo Boo's Facebook page Friday. "The statement of me dating a sex offender is totally untrue."
