Anna Cardwell is the oldest of June Shannon's daughters. Both mother and daughter starred in TLC's hit show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, until the show was cancelled when reports hit the media about Shannon being romantically involved with a convicted child molester. Now Anna Cardwell--known as Chickadee on the show--is suing June Shannon--also known as Mama June--for $201,000. She claims her mother owes her for some of her appearances on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

Cardwell filed suit Monday, naming both June Shannon and Honey Boo Boo LLC. She says they were in control of money that was supposed to go into a trust for her and her daughter.

Anna Cardwell also claims that her two-year-old daughter Kaitlyn is owed nearly $100,000.

TMZ reports that Mama June Shannon and her family earned $22,500 per episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. One-third of that amount was supposed to have been divided between all four of June Shannon's daughters.

June Shannon claims the money went directly into her daughter's accounts from TLC, and that she never saw any of the money for which Anna Cardwell has filed suit.

Shannon also says she gave Anna Cardwell a check for $15,400 in December. That was apparently her cut of what the show's cast members received when TLC pulled the plug on their show.

June Shannon has been outspoken about wanting TLC to cancel 19 Kids and Counting, believing that Josh Duggar's sexual molestation scandal is as devastating as what she was accused of by TLC. She denies any romantic involvement with Mark McDaniel, the aforementioned convicted child molester.

Meanwhile Anna Cardwell is expecting her second child with her husband Michael. Anna Cardwell is 20 years old.

It will certainly be interesting to see how this issue is resolved.

Do you think June Shannon owes Anna Cardwell that sum of money?
