— -- "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" has been canceled.

The decision comes on the heels of a TMZ report that show matriarch Mama June, or June Shannon, is dating a convicted child molester.

"TLC has cancelled the series 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' and ended all activities around the series, effective immediately," a spokesperson for the network told ABC News in a statement. "Supporting the health and welfare of these remarkable children is our only priority. TLC is faithfully committed to the children's ongoing comfort and well-being.”

"We just want to thank from the bottom of our hearts the support that we've had from our fans," Shannon said in a video post today. "This experience has been awesome to us."

The "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" star, a mother of four including 9-year-old Alana, a.k.a. "Honey Boo Boo," has denied having a relationship with the sex offender.

"I want to make a post trying to clear up the rumors remember you can't believe everything you read!" she wrote on Facebook. "It isnt true i promise my kids r #1 priority over anything else and I would never put them in danger period over this or anything else they r my life this is my past I left him 10 yrs ago for it and I wouldn't go back."

"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" is currently between seasons. Yesterday, a spokesperson for the network told ABC News that it was "reassessing the future of the series."

"TLC is not currently in production on 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,'" the network told ABC News in a statement Thursday. "We are very concerned about this new information."
