Farrah Abraham filed a lawsuit against Viacom, the parent company of MTV, last month, claiming she was sex-shamed and fired from Teen Mom OG due to her involvement in the adult industry. She also accused producer Morgan J. Freeman of disrespecting her, ridiculing her, and degrading her for doing porn.
Now, just weeks later, the former reality star’s attorney has confirmed her $5 million case against Viacom and a number of other smaller production companies associated with MTV has been “amicably settled.”
Variety shared the news with readers on March 27.
The details of her settlement have not been revealed but the case was dismissed with prejudice, meaning Farrah cannot refile the lawsuit in the future. This is leading to speculation that MTV might have paid her off.
According to her lawsuit, Farrah believed she had been subjected to discrimination due to her failure to conform to the gender stereotypes the network expected. As fans may know, Farrah appeared in two sex tapes in 2013, including Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom and Farrah Superstar: Backdoor and More, and has continued her journey as an adult star by releasing a line of sex toys, writing erotic novels, and appearing in erotic webcam shows.
In addition to Farrah’s claims of discrimination, she also accused Freeman of threatening her MTV career in such an aggressive manner that she actually feared for her life.
“There’s a lot of double standards and discrimination and women aren’t treated equally,” Farrah explained to TMZ after her lawsuit was filed. “If nobody else wants to change the world for the better, then that’s fine, but I want to and that’s my prerogative I guess.”
Viacom denied Farrah’s allegations at the time her lawsuit was filed and wished her the best.
