'What Would You Do, If You Were Me?' Farrah Abraham Defends Her Decision To Profit From 'Sex-Tape'

The Teen Mom star claims she made the X-rated film to provide for daughter Sophia...and to show off her 'awesome' body

Farrah Abraham has addressed her fans in an attempt to justify the emergence and eventual sale of a sex-tape in which she features with veteran porn actor James Deen.

The 21-year-old Teen Mom star followed the lucrative sale of her blue movie to Los Angeles based porn distributor Vivid Entertainment by making a significantly less explicit video in a bid to explain her recent actions.

In the short clip – posted on video sharing site Keek – Farrah claims her decision to star in 70-minute feature Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom was based primarily on her need to provide for four-year-old daughter Sophia...and show off her 'awesome' body.

“What would you do?” she asked. “You have been a single mum for four years, off and on, dating loser-ass boys who always try and sell information, lie to you, manipulate you.

“You have just realised you are an awesome person and you deserve someone. Now that you're 21, you've pretty much been crying every night because you are single and alone. So, you make your own video, celebrate your awesome body (and) get your own sexy shots.”

News of Farrah's tape emerged when Deen claimed that she concocted a scheme to sell a professionally made film as a 'leaked sex-tape' – a revelation that infuriated the MTV star.

“So, the person you did this with has the urge to yell it out, when he should be professional and is not,” she added. “But you have companies that are interested, so why not sell it. And that's what I did.”

Indeed, Farrah is understood to have pocketed a cool $1.5 million through the deal with Vivid – but the hefty profit hasn't calmed her dad Mike, who claims Deen broke a non-disclosure agreement by leaking details of the tape.

Away from his day job as a porn star Deen will soon be featuring in new independent film The Canyons playing the jealous lover of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan.

The film - directed by Paul Schrader from a screenplay by American author Brett Easton Ellis - will be released in August.
