Farrah Abraham sues Viacom for shaming her for her adult film career
Farrah Abraham has gone her way and is seeking legal action against the production team of Teen Mom after she was asked to leave the show.
Farrah Abraham is not done with Teen Mom yet and her recent decision of taking matters into court is a proof of that. Last month, the reality star had announced that she would not be continuing on the show while calling the show to be “hateful” and “horrible,” Farrah has now taken legal action and is suing parent company Viacom for $5 million.
The court documents which were obtained by The Blast state that she was fired from the show because of her decision to continue working in the adult entertainment industry. She had previously released sex tapes and has done adult webcam shows and appearances at strip clubs.
In the documents, the mother of one alleges that Viacom “wrongfully terminated her employment because she did not conform to gender stereotypes.” Farrah claims that in October 2017 she was confronted by 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom executive producer Morgan J. Freeman at her Texas home and it was there that Morgan showed her disrespect.
She said that she was “harassed, humiliated, discriminated against, disrespected, ridiculed, degraded and sex shamed” for her “recent decision to pursue opportunities in the adult entertainment industry.” She further added that Morgan and her crew made threats about “ending her career with MTV, sabotaging future deals [she] had in place with MTV, and defaming her.”
She claims that she “feared for her life” during the confrontation due to Freeman’s “hostile tone, mannerisms, and body language.” She then added that shortly after this incident, she was informed that she would no longer be part of the show. According to Farrah, this decision of the production team is based on their “gender stereotypes of how women should act and appear, unreasonably interfered” her work performance and psychological well-being.
Farrah is suing for emotional pain, emotional suffering, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life and other damages. She also alleged gender discrimination and a hostile work environment and added that she should still get the money that has been mentioned in her contract.
Last month, Farrah had shared a post on her Instagram in which she made multiple accusations against the network. The post showed a Teen Mom OG clip in which Farrah was seen talking to Morgan, who said she was a “problem” to work with.
Since this incident, a Viacom spokesperson told People, “We respect Farrah’s decision to pursue other endeavors and we wish her the best. Regarding her suit, the claims are without merit.”
