‘Teen Mom’ Star Farrah Abraham Sues Viacom For $5 Million
Lawsuits are the last resort after all options are eliminated. Legal battles are tedious, and there are always massive repercussions.
Abraham Versus Viacom
One person whose life might be turned upside down by a legal battle is original Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham. According to People Magazine, Abraham is now moving onto an upcoming legal action against the television company that made her star. Abraham is seeking $5,000,000 from the entertainment company following her "wrongful termination" from the network.
Celebrity news website The Blast found legal documents of an alleged lawsuit between Abraham and Viacom. The legal report states that Abraham was allegedly confronted by television producer Morgan J. Freeman and his crew when they visited her home in Texas in October 2017. During the confrontation, it is alleged that they bashed the former MTV star for her decision to go into the porn industry.
It is alleged that Freeman and company made threats 'against' the former MTV star. Abraham also stated that Freeman threatened to blackmail her and, in that confrontation, she noticed that Freeman's mannerisms were increasingly threatening and feared for her life. Abraham has sued the company for emotional pain, loss of enjoyment of life, and mental anguish. Also, she claimed that Viacom terminated her from Teen Mom because she "did not conform to gender stereotypes."
A Viacom representative told Enstars: "We respect Farrah's decision to pursue other endeavors and we wish the best. Regarding her suit, the claims are without merit."
Post 'Teen Mom' Life
Before she issued her lawsuit against Viacom, Abraham's life was documented continuously by the paparazzi and tabloids. She had a "pregnancy scare" and encouraged her fans to keep an eye on their birth control pills so that they did not expire. Abraham also turned to an IUD implant to make sure that she would never receive a pregnancy scare again.
Abraham also faced controversy in December 2017 when fans accused her of using her daughter, Sophia's Twitter page of promoting her career in the adult entertainment industry. Fans immediately clapped back at the former Teen Mom star and even suggested that Child Protective Services should take away Sophia from Abraham.
Following her firing from MTV, Abraham received a lucrative offer from ManyVids, a premium online adult entertainment website. She uploaded a video celebrating sexual positivity last Nov. 22, 2017. Abraham interacted with her viewers during the internet hangout.
Other 'Teen Mom' News
While Abraham and Viacom prepare to square off in court, other Teen Mom stars have been busy conquering the tabloids and gossip sites.
MTV terminated Jenelle Evans' husband, David Eason, from Teen Mom 2. The network ended their professional relationship with them following Eason's Twitter rant that showcased a series of anti-LGBTQ posts. Meanwhile, Abraham's former castmate, Catelynn Lowell returned to rehab following a short stint home with her husband Tyler Baltierra and 3-year-old daughter Nova.
