Two days after it was reported that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch Mama June is dating a sex offender, her eldest daughter. Anna Cardwell, says she was the victim of sexual abuse from her mother's boyfriend, RadarOnline.com reports.

Anna Shannon Cardwell tells the site that she was the 8-year-old victim of convicted sex offender Mark McDaniel in 2002 and 2003. "I believe she is seeing him and hanging around him," Cardwell, 20, told the website. "I'm hurt. ... I think me and Mama's relationship may well be over."

Celebrities who've survived scandal

TMZ.com first broke the story Thursday that Mama June (real name: June Shannon) is dating McDaniel, who was convicted of aggravated child molestation in 2004 and served 10 years in prison before being released in March. He is now a registered sex offender in the state of Georgia.

Although Mama June denied the allegations against her, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was subsequently canceled on Friday.
