Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell is alleging her mother, a star of the canceled TLC reality series “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” stole the money Cardwell earned from the TV show, TMZ.com reports.
As previously reported, TLC canceled the show after news surfaced that Mama June, the mother of Honey Boo Boo, was secretly dating Mark McDaniel, who had served 10 years in prison for molesting one of June’s relatives. The victim was Cardwell, Mama June’s daughter, it was later revealed.
Cardwell told Dr. Phil that her mother handled her accounts because she was underage. “She claims her savings account was whittled down to $17.89 … and her trust fund plummeted from $30,000 to $15,400,” the story reports. Cardwell has reportedly hired an attorney and is seeking a return of the funds.
“Mama June claims she sent Anna a cashier’s check … but Chickadee says, it’s the oldest line in the book … the check’s in the mail,” TMZ reports.
