David Dunn is the father of Anna “Chickadee” Shannon, the older sister of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, and one of the stars of the breakout TLC hit Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
The National Enquirer is reporting that the 34-year-old was sentenced to prison back in 1995 for stealing a hand gun. In 1998 he got arrested again for stealing cartons of cigarettes.
Dunn, who recently became a grandfather after Anna gave birth, didn’t mind doing a little sharing about the time he spent with Mama June Shannon and his desire to have a relationship with his daughter:
“She [June] took my virginity and I took hers.” He added, “Anna looks just like me. They wanted me to sign away my rights to Anna, but I refused. I don’t know who my own daddy is, and I always want Anna to know who her father is. But June won’t let me see her.”
Dunn, who goes by “Bart Simpson” and “Shorty,” is it just me or does everyone involved seem to have a handle, claims he didn’t even know he was a daddy until he got out of a prison work detail and was sent to a child support hearing. And that occurred 4 years after Anna had been born.
