A man approached gossip website TMZ trying to sell them naked photos of Lee Thompson, better known as uncle “Poodle” in the hit reality show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.”
TMZ reports an unnamed man from Georgia contacted them saying he had naked photos of Thompson in the shower, which the reality star himself had sent the man via gay hook-up app Grindr.
While the man claims there was no hookup, he says uncle Poodle immediately dropped his niece’s nickname, Honey Boo Boo, during their online chat.
“So you know who honey boo boo is? That’s my niece,” the man claims Thompson said.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is a reality show on TLC featuring an eight-year-old beauty pageant contestant named Alana Thompson and her family of self-proclaimed rednecks.
Uncle Poodle was outed on television by his niece during the show. He recently revealed that he’s HIV-positive.
Lee Thompson has not publicly said whether he’ll pursue legal action, according to TMZ.
