Mama June is moving on after her split from Sugar Bear last month – but the man she is now dating may have just put the future of the family's TLC show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, in jeopardy.

According to TMZ, June Shannon, 35, has moved on after her separation with a new man. The problem?

PEOPLE has confirmed that the man was convicted for aggravated child molestation and was imprisoned in June 2004, making him "a cause for serious concern by the network," a source close to the show tells PEOPLE.

"TLC is not currently in production on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," a rep for the network said in a statement. "We are very concerned about this new information and are reassessing the future of the series."
