Last fall, former Teen Mom OG star Farrah Abraham bailed on a celebrity boxing match against Flavor of Love alum Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander, and now the promoter of the match is taking the former reality star to court. But, boxing promoter Damon Feldman says that bailing wasn’t the worst thing that Abraham did.
Feldman says that Abraham had a meltdown and begged him for cash before she bailed on the fight. And, he told Radar Online that Abraham was “absolutely the worst” celebrity he has ever booked for a match. He added that Abraham’s demands were so bad that they made figure skating diva Tonya Harding “look like a princess.”

When Abraham signed the boxing contract, Feldman gave her a $2,500 deposit. And, he was going to give her the next $2,500 on the date of the match, but she begged him to give it to her earlier – in cash.
“She needed the money so bad, so I sent her the next $2,500 in cash because she couldn’t accept a check. She said she was broke, and was in tears, and said, ‘Please, I’m getting kicked out of my house.’ That’s also why she was doing that other reality show. She’s broke and was getting evicted. But this is it. I’m exposing her and I’m not letting this go. Honestly, she is a disgrace,” said Feldman.
In the days leading up to the fight, Feldman says that Abraham became extremely demanding, and at one point she asked him for 36 hotel rooms and six first-class tickets for friends and family. She also told him that if he didn’t guarantee her a win, she would consider that a breach of contract and quit the event.
Feldman also revealed that Abraham came to him begging to fight because she wanted to take a stand against bullying. But, ultimately, she was the “fakest person” he has ever dealt with.
He has now filed a $12,000 lawsuit against Abraham, claiming that she refused to return the money. He also claims that the adult entertainment star took money from sponsors and expensive boxing gear for training.
Feldman is accusing Abraham of using the Celebrity Boxing platform to promote appearances and to get training opportunities at different gyms. All of those people paid Abraham, and she backed out on the deal. Now, Feldman says everyone is “p***ed” and hurt.
Even though Feldman is demanding $12,000 from Abraham, he says that the total will increase to about $100,000 now that that the sponsors are involved.

He says that he is going to get Abraham, and that’s all there is to it. He believes that Abraham should pay because the bottom line is that she took money and then pulled out.
“Pay us the money that we fronted you,” said Feldman.
In a statement, Farrah Abraham slammed Feldman and accused him of slander. She denied all of his accusations and said that she is “too famous to deal with scam artists.”
