Fans know that the reality TV star lost her job after returning to the adult film industry. According to new reports, Farrah Abraham has decided to fight back against MTV following her firing from Teen Mom OG. Now, she is reportedly suing for wrongful termination as well as harassment.
Farrah sued New Remote Productions, Eleventh Street Productions Anxious Eleven, Viacom as well as executive producer Morgan J. Freeman for allegedly ‘harassing her because she didn’t conform to gender stereotypes, wrongfully terminating her employment because she didn’t conform to gender stereotypes and finally terminating her employment in retaliation for complaining about the gender stereotyping harassment she had suffered.’
The documents obtained reveal that Abraham claims producer Freeman confronted her at the end of October and then ‘harassed, humiliated, disrespected, discriminated, degraded, ridiculed, and sex-shamed’ her choice to pursue a career in the porn industry.
Apparently, Freeman threatened to end Farrah’s MTV career as well as sabotage any future collaborations with the network.
‘Given Freeman’s hostile tone, mannerism, and body language, Abraham feared for her life,’ her attorney explains in the documents adding that the ‘harassment’ interfered with Farrah’s ‘work performance and psychological well-being.’
‘The emotional pain, inconvenience, email suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, mental anguish, and other losses Abraham has suffered and continues to suffer, are severe.’
That being said, we have learned that Farrah is asking for no less than $5 million.
On the other hand, she was fired not only for the fact that she returned to the porn industry but also because of her alleged behavior towards the production team.
In a Teen Mom clip, Freeman says: ‘I think we want to look into how people are treated. Do you feel like you respect the people around you who are trying to make the show?’
When Abraham said she does respect the show’s crew, the man added: ‘You have little empathy and compassion for other people. There has to be respect for our crew and for the producers. The amount of work that goes into keeping you happy has bubbled up to a point where we have to figure out if we move forward.’
‘I am not difficult. I’m so understanding. I’m working my a** off just like everyone,’ Abraham defended herself when it was suggested that she is the only mom on the show who makes things so difficult for the behind-the-camera team.
