Mama June Shannon has been sued by her daughter Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell, who is accusing her of stifling her of the hundreds of thousands of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo cash due her.
In the suit, Anna claims her mother screwed her out of $200,000 and owes her 2-year old daughter Kaitlyn $100,000. She also accused June of keeping their share of the $22,500 paycheck per episode, as well as not returning the money from royalties and other promotional ventures.
According to TMZ, June has described Anna’s claims as ‘ridiculous,’ stating that TLC pays each member of the show directly. She also revealed that their last contract in 2012 explicitly stated that one-third of the $22,500 paycheck is to be divided up among the kids and paid to them individually … which means she essentially had no control on how the money is paid.
June says she even gave Anna a portion of her own paycheck and paid for some of her essential needs.
