Mama June Shannon Sued By Daughter Anna Cardwell Over 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo'
By Antoinette Bueno
Although Here Comes Honey Boo Boowas canceled last year due to Mama June Shannon's reported rekindled relationship with convicted sex offender Mark McDaniel -- which she denied -- looks like there's still plenty of drama surrounding the former TLC show.
Mama June's 20-year-old daughter, Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell, is now suing her mother for allegedly keeping $300,000 in profits from the show that was due to her and her daughter, two-year-old Kaitlyn, according to court documents obtained by ET. She's also suing TLC for failing in their duty to ensure that they received their compensation.
Cardwell claims her mother has held on to $200,000 in earnings that was supposed to go to her, as well as $100,000 for Kaitlyn. The family reportedly got paid $22,500 per Honey Boo Boo episode, not counting other lucrative ventures such as their cookbook.
"Unfortunately, despite contractual requirements to do so, none of the Defendants have provided Anna and Kaitlyn with the full compensation and consideration they were contractually promised for their participation in Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," the lawsuit reads. "Despite continuous requests for information and documents made by Anna on behalf of herself and her daughter Kaitlyn to discover how much money is owed to Plaintiffs ... Defendants have continued to deny Anna knowledge of the facts and figures of their accounts."
Mama June has yet to officially respond to the lawsuit. But the 35-year-old reality star tells TMZ she believes her mother, Sandra Hale, is behind the court filings. She also told the site that she doesn't owe Cardwell any money, claiming that TLC deposited Cardwell's share of the money directly into her own accounts.
Last month, Mama June talked to ET about the Josh Duggar molestation scandal, saying that she's prepared to take legal action against TLC if the network doesn't cancel 19 Kids and Counting.
