Mama June broke her silence on her relationship with sex offender Mark McDaniel for the first time since TLC cancelled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo in October.

Mama June & Sex Offender Spotted Holding Hands? 

The 35-year-old sat down with Entertainment Tonight to tell her side of the story and revealed she has "nothing to hide."

Last month, the reality star received backlash after photos showed her and McDaniel together. The 53-year-old spent 10 years in prison after he was convicted in 2004 for molesting Mama June's daughter, Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell, when she was eight. June was also dating him at the time of his conviction.

Yet, Mama June says she only saw him twice since he left prison and one time was only by coincidence. The planned meeting was in attempt for her 14-year-old daughter Pumpkin to get closure from McDaniel, whom she thought was her biological father.

"Since two months to almost six years, she knew nobody but him," Mama June said. "She was starting to resent Anna and she was starting to ask me questions. I can't answer those questions for Pumpkin."

"I was sitting right there with twelve other people," she continued. "It was a conversation that she wanted her answers: what happened, why did he leave, you know, if he was her real father. He admitted to her, no. I had already told her that but, you know, she wanted to hear from both sides of the story."

Mama June also revealed the identity of Pumpkin’s real father – a man named Michael Anthony Ford. The man is also a convicted sex offender who went to prison for his crime after he was discovered on Dateline NBC’s To Catch a Predator in 2005. Ford, she said, is also the father of her 18-year-old daughter Jessica.

“I lied to my family and told them it was somebody else,” Mama June added.
