June Shannon, who stars in the show Mama June: Road to Redemption, just got married to Justin Stroud for the second time. The wedding took place in a small room in Panama City, Florida. Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell was one of June’s four children who went to the wedding.
This article talks about s*xual assault on a minor, which may be upsetting to some people. Use your best judgement.
It’s important to remember that Anna and her mother had broken up before. The first person told The Sun in 2021 that she didn’t talk to her mother. Anna said that she started staying away from June after she got back together with Mark McDaniel, who had raped her when she was a child.
She told the news outlet that she didn’t know Mama June.
Why does Anna Cardwell have no relationship with Mama June: Road to Redemption star June Shannon?
Anna Cardwell was eight years old when her mother started dating Mark McDaniel.
In 2003, when she was still a minor, she told the police that she had “done the s-word” with Mark and that between April and October 2002, he had hit her many times. She even said that McDaniel had told her he would hurt her if she told anyone else.
Mark got 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to aggravated child molestation. He got out in 2014. Chickadee also said that Mama June: Road to Redemption star Mama June didn’t believe her when she told her about the attacks.
But that wasn’t the only bad thing that happened. After Mark got out of jail, there were pictures that said Mama June and Mark McDaniel were back together.
Even though her ex-boyfriend had admitted guilt and her daughter had talked about the attack, Mama June said on Dr. Phil in 2014 that she hadn’t heard Anna’s side of the story until two years earlier.
She said she had told Anna she was sorry and that they talked every day. The mother on “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” even said that she felt like she hadn’t done enough to protect Anna.
“She agreed with me that I didn’t know. When this happened, I was at work.”
In 2021, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efird’s baby shower brought the family together, and Chickadee then talked to The Sun. She told the publication that she and her mother had never talked about their roles, and that June had never apologised for her mistakes.
“I don’t think she’s ever said, “Oh, I’m sorry for what happened or for this,” in a conversation with me. It seems like she always brushes things off and acts like nothing is wrong or has happened.”
She also said that they used to be really close, but when June got back together with Mark, she started keeping her distance. Anna also said that after that, she moved away from the Mama June: Road to Redemption star because she didn’t understand why her mother would do something like that.
The oldest daughter sued June Shannon for putting her on the show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo without paying her, but the case didn’t go anywhere. She said that their fights about money didn’t help their relationship and that it was a long process. She also said that she didn’t want to worry about it.
Anna also said that they talk when they see each other, but she thinks her mother tries to avoid her, and she doesn’t want to force a relationship.
Anna attended her mother’s wedding to Justin Stroud
But Anna Chickadee Cardwell put aside her differences and came to watch her mother get married to Justin Stroud in a small ceremony. Mama June told PEOPLE Magazine that her wedding was very special and that it was the first time her whole family had been together since 2014.
Mama June and Justin met for the first time on TikTok, and he didn’t know who she was. Even though they haven’t been together for long, they got along right away. They first got married in a courthouse in Georgia in March 2022. On February 18, 2023, they did it again in a small, private setting.
