Farrah Abraham Suing MTV for $5 Million Over 'Teen Mom OG' Firing
The 26-year-old television personality has filed a $5 million lawsuit against Viacom, along with Eleventh Street Productions, Anxious Eleven and Teen Mom producer Morgan J. Freeman, according to Variety.
The new docuseries will follow the ups and downs of being a young expectant mother.
Abraham accused the parties of harassment and wrongful termination in a complaint filed in federal court in Texas. The allegations stem from a meeting Abraham had with Freeman and the production crew at her home Oct. 30.
Abraham said Freeman and the crew "harassed, humiliated and discriminated against, disrespected, ridiculed and sex-shamed" her during the meeting due to her decision to continue her career in pornography.
"Threats were made against Ms. Abraham by Freeman about ending her career with MTV and sabotaging future deals Ms. Abraham had in place with MTV, and defaming her," the complaint reads.
In the complaint, Abraham claimed she was fired from Teen Mom OG as a "direct result" of the confrontation. She also said a "lucrative deal" with MTV fell through because of the conflict.
Abraham had said in a Facebook post Oct. 30 that she was fired because she partakes in "adult promotions and activities." She was seen confronting MTV producers in a Season 7 promo for the show released in November.
