ALANA “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson has caused concern among fans after she shared a disturbing post on Instagram.
It comes after rumors that she broke up with her boyfriend Draleen Carswell, 21, after he was accused of sexual assault.
Alana took to Instagram on Thursday to post a video with Lamar Odom.
She didn’t post a caption to it, but the video said it all.
Former basketball player spoke about leaving the previous leadership.
He talked about people who did wrong to him and hacked his Instagram.
He further said that people stabbed him in the back.
While she may have just shared the video because she sympathizes with Lamar, many people think that this applies to her as well.
However, Instagram itself was not hacked.
Alana’s boyfriend, Dralyn Carswell, was arrested a few years before he started dating her.
Since then, fans think the couple broke up as they weren’t seen together on any social media and kept very quiet.
Earlier this month, Kristen Bell Tattoos received documents showing that Drahlin was arrested on May 29, 2019 and initially charged with rape.
His 2019 photo was also released by the police.
Alana was not the intended victim in the case, and it appears the incident happened before he and the Mama June Road to Redemption star started dating.
According to a police report, the mother of the alleged victim brought her daughter to the police station and claimed that Draleen, who was 18 at the time, climbed in through her daughter’s window and had sex with the 15-year-old minor.
In the report, the officer wrote that he had interrogated a minor.
“I asked my daughter if it was consensual and she said yes.
The minor told the officer that “her plan with Karswell was for him to come to the house and there they had consensual unprotected sex in her bedroom.”
Draleen allegedly told police that the underage “was his girlfriend and they talked about him coming to her house … but he didn’t actually go to the house.”
He told police that he had been at his friend’s house all day and night, but during police interrogations of friends he claimed he was with, two of them told investigators that they had dropped him off at a minor’s house and taken him back an hour later .
Friends allegedly told police that when they picked up Dralin, he “feared and told them to drive fast” because “the minor’s mother found him in the house.”
Dralin was initially charged with statutory rape, but he ultimately completed a pre-trial distraction program that resulted in a suit for perjury to law enforcement being dismissed.
During a pre-trial dismissal hearing in June 2021, the 21-year-old agreed to comply with the terms of the program in exchange for being fired.
The assistant district attorney said during the hearing that Draleen was “charged with statutory rape in the misdemeanor category,” but “based on the evidence, we didn’t feel we could prove statutory rape, but we could prove a false statement.”
The documents also stated that this was the first time he had been in trouble with the law.
‘I DON’T CARE’
Amid the controversy, Alana, who has been dating Dralin for over a year, came to the defense of her boyfriend in an interview. PEOPLE.
The 16-year-old said: “In our relationship, two things that everyone always talks about is our age difference and definitely because he is black and I am white and we are an interracial couple.
“I don’t care because in the end my sister approves, his mom approves and we are happy.
“So I don’t care what the fans say or what the haters say.”
The teen added that despite their age difference, she and Draleen “are always talking about something – there’s never an awkward moment or silence or anything like that.”
NOT IN TIKTOK
After the rape allegations surfaced, fans noticed that Honey Boo Boo’s Tiktok account had disappeared.
Alana did not announce her decision to leave the social network, but fans are concerned.
Before the disappearance of the account, she was active on TikTok.
She is also silent about the Drahlin scandal.
In early 2021, Kristen Bell Tattoos exclusively reported that Alana and Dralyn – a college student – are dating.
A source confirmed that Draleen attended a Nashville tech school before the pandemic hit, but now resides in Georgia near Alana and her 22-year-old sister, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, who is the guardian of her younger sister.
Pumpkin told Kristen Bell Tattoos exclusively last month: “My husband and I love Darlene. He is very respectful towards Alana and treats Alana with the utmost respect. He is around us and our children and we love him for Alana.”
Despite the diamond ring the 16-year-old star wore on that finger, Pumpkin clarified that it was not an engagement ring, but a promise ring from Drahlin.
The twins’ new mother added that Draleen gave the ring to Alana “probably last year, I don’t know the exact date.”
Dralin eventually appeared on a recent episode of Mama June: Road to Redemption which aired in June.
He attended Alana’s 16th birthday party, which came as a complete surprise to the teenager.
