Farrah Abraham is suing MTV and Teen Mom for $5m
Farrah Abraham announced today that she is suing Viacom (who owns MTV) and the Teen Mom OG production for wrongful dismissal.
The star was cut from the series back in October 2017 which she believes stemmed from her decision to continue a career in pornography.
I stand up for what is right so we all can be treated better and have a better world, if you want to continue this bad cycle then stay away from me & my family. Start treating people better being racist, sexist, hate crimes, discriminatory, sexual harassment it’s awful and stop impacting generations with the hateful culture it’s wrong & will always be wrong #illegal
She is now suing the company and production alongside the creator Morgan J. Freeman. In the case obtained by E! News, they state her reasoning is as follows: "Complaints of harassment, wrongful termination based upon gender discrimination and retaliation based upon gender discrimination".
In the document, Farrah states she felt "harassed, humiliated and discriminated against, disrespected, ridiculed and sex shamed" by Morgan J. Freeman and the entire crew.
She also states that threats were made against her career and she was told she would never work with MTV again. She believes that her termination from the series was to do with her pornography career and because it doesn't "conform to their gender stereotypes of how women should act and appear" therefore MTV let her go.
Farrah claims she suffered "emotional pain, emotional suffering, inconvenience, mental anguish and loss of enjoyment of life" and therefore is seeking $5m.
A spokesperson from MTV released a statement to E! News, saying, "We respect Farrah's decision to pursue other endeavors, and we wish her the best. Regarding her suit, the claims are without merit."
