Here Comes Honey Boo Boo became a reality hit for TLC based on the star power of Toddlers and Tiaras breakout star Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and her eccentric family, but the network recently cancelled the show after a child molestation scandal that involves multiple family members. Here's a breakdown of the Honey Boo Boo clan and their relation to the scandal:

MAMA JUNE

EXCLUSIVE: Mama June Reveals Pumpkin's Real Father and Another Relationship With a Sex Offender

Name: June Shannon
Nickname: Mama June
Age: 35
Relation: Family Matriarch
Her Story: Mama June came under fire in October when she allegedly rekindled a relationship with convicted sex criminal Mark McDaniel. It was further alleged that McDaniel – who spent 10 years in prison for aggravated child molestation, had molested June's eldest daughter Anna when she was 8.
June told ET her side of the story, claiming that she hadn't been dating McDaniel, in fact, she had only seen him on two occasions - once by coincidence and once so her daughter Pumpkin (who once believed McDaniel was her biological father) could get closure. She also revealed that the real father of her two middle children, Pumpkin and Jessica, was a different convicted sex offender named Michael Anthony Ford.

SUGAR BEAR

Name: Mike Thompson
Nickname: Sugar Bear
Age: 42
Relation: Father Of Honey Boo Boo, ex-boyfriend of Mama June
His Story: Sugar Bear and Mama June never married, though they did hold a commitment ceremony in May 2013. The couple recently spilt in September 2014 after Sugar Bear was caught texting and talking to other women on Facebook. As for whether he has concerns about Mama June having Alana around McDaniel, he told ET, "To an extent, yes I do."

MARK MCDANIEL

Name: Mark McDaniel
Age: 53
Relation: Dated Mama June from 2000-2004
His Story: McDaniel spent 10 years behind bars for aggravated child molestation and was just released. According to Anna Cardwell, Mama June's eldest daughter, McDaniel molested her when she was 8. It was rumored that McDaniel may have been Pumpkin's father of Pumpkin, but Mama June has since denied those claims.

MICHAEL ANTHONY FORD

Age: 37
Relation: Father of Chubbs, also just alleged to be the father of Pumpkin
His Story: Like McDaniel, he is a convicted sex offender who spent two years in prison for the sexual exploitation of a child over the internet after being caught on To Catch a Predator in 2005. "Jessica's dad has had nothing to do with her over the years," Mama June told ET while explaining why she kept Pumpkin's real father a secret. "[So] I lied to my family and told them it was somebody else."

CHICKADEE

Honey Boo Boo's Sister Anna Cardwell Tells ET: 'He's a Child Molester, Mama'

Name: Anna Cardwell
Nickname: Chickadee
Age: 20
Relation: Daughter of Mama June and David Dunn, who has never appeared on the show.
Her Story: Anna alleges that she was molested by Mark McDaniel when she was 8 years old. She has spoken out against her mother – and June's reported relationship with McDaniel – saying, "It's Mama's fault. She has to live with it. She has brung the past back and now she can't get it away. I'm mad. I'm upset. I feel betrayed. I feel very hurt. That's the main thing that I am -- I feel very hurt that Mama let him come around."

CHUBBS

Name: Jessica Shannon
Nickname: Chubbs
Age: 18
Relation: Daughter of Mama June and Michael Anthony Ford
Her Story: Jessica has remained mum during this whole ordeal though Mama June did mention that her father Anthony Michael Ford - and also allegedly Pumpkin's father - "has reached out to Jessica [but] Jessica wants nothing whatsoever to do with him, has never."

PUMPKIN

Name: Lauryn Shannon
Nickname: Pumpkin
Age: 14
Relation: Daughter of Mama June. Allegedly, her father is also Michael Anthony Ford
Her Story: She was raised with McDaniel as her father figure, which Mama June claims is the only reason she purposefully met with him after his release from prison. "I wanted to be able to give one of my daughters closure and now Pumpkin is happy. That piece of our life is over," June says. According to the charges filed against McDaniel by Anna and her grandmother, Pumpkin was in the bed when Anna was molested.

HONEY BOO BOO

Name: Alana Thompson
Nickname: Honey Boo Boo
Age: 9
Relation: Daughter of Mama June and Sugar Bear.
Her Story: Obviously we haven't and probably won't hear from Honey Boo Boo but since this controversy arose, many have expressed concern for her safety, including her Uncle Poodle and her grandmother Sandra Hale. However, Mama June has stated firmly that Alana has never been alone with McDaniel. "He never really talked to her. He said, 'Hey,'" she told us.

GRANDMA HALE

Child Services Investigating Honey Boo Boo's Family, Grandmother Says

Name: Sandra Hale
Relation: Mama June's mother
Her Story: It was Hale that filed charges against McDaniel on behalf of an 8-year-old Anna. "I was looking out for her best interests and I wasn't going to let this go away." Hale told ET in an exclusive interview. Mama June claims, "I knew nothing about the situation up until almost two and half years ago" because Hale kept her out of Anna's life and the court proceedings.

UNCLE POODLE

Name: Lee Thompson
Nickname: Uncle Poodle
Age: 31
Relation: Sugar Bear's brother, Honey Boo Boo's uncle
His Story: Thompson, who is openly gay, is known to the family as "Uncle Poodle." He revealed in 2013 that he is HIV-positive and was arrested in October 2014 after allegedly vandalizing his ex-boyfriend's car. Thompson reportedly threatened to seek temporary custody of Honey Boo Boo due to Mama June's relationship with Mark McDaniel and Sugar Bear's health concerns, but the family has dismissed that possibility.
