Honey Boo Boo, 16, revealed that she is dating a 20-year-old Black college student, leaving fans side-eyeing the relationship.
According to a source close to the 16-year-old reality star, whose real name is Alana Thompson, she has been dating Dralin Carswell for the past six months. The insider claims that the two are “attached at the hip.” Despite the age difference, Thompson’s family approves of the relationship.
Back in March, Carswell changed his Facebook status to “in a relationship.” A private Facebook page for Thompson previously showed a cover photo of the couple together, but it has since been changed.
Despite the couple residing in Georgia, where the legal age of consent is 16, social media slammed the relationship. Fans called for her sister and legal guardian, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, to intervene. One Twitter user wrote, “Someone arrest honey boo boo boyfriend.”
