We thought this might come out after she tweeted, "I'm not going to say "I TOLD YOU SO" but I'm to busy for Rapists #weakAreStrong #speakout #slutwalk" on November 30…
Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham is now the eighth person to come forward claiming to be raped, drugged, and abused by porn star James Deen — which led her to entering intensive therapy.
In a recent interview with Daily Mail, the 24-year-old opened up about her relationship with Deen back when they casually dated in 2013. Farrah claims she was controlled by the "abusive, pushy, and manipulative" 29-year-old, who she believes intentionally leaked the sex tape they made together to ruin her career.
"Leaked" tape?? We thought it was released on Sophia's momma's own accord — but anyway!
The MTV star shared:
"James Deen raped me for his benefit of fame. He conspired against me with others that I thought were my friends at the time and that was very hurtful. I let it all go and I wanted to move on; due to the public and others in the media believing an abusive womanizer, sex addict, disgusting, unprofessional, adult entertainer's lies."

While she didn't go into specifics of the assault(s), the sex toy mogul did recount an incident where Deen forced himself on her when she asked him to help her zip up the back of her dress. She decided to handle her rape allegations privately instead of going to the police:
"This has already been privately taken care of and still, and always is, consistently being monitored by my legal team. I met James Deen because of a manager and a friend at the time who was in the porn industry. She had known [him] way longer than I even knew about. She felt comfortable with him. He was very much on his best behavior for the two to three times I met him before I was comfortable."
Abraham said she couldn't reveal the manager's name because of an impending lawsuit — but Daily Mail identified her then-manager as Gina Rodriguez of GR Media. Although it cannot be confirmed that she is the manager in question, a rep for Rodriguez responded to the claim saying:
"The story Farrah is telling is completely false and defamatory. Gina did not introduce Farrah and James, she met him through the company she made her video with. Gina has never worked with James when she was in the adult industry for the brief time she was in. She barely knows James, she has only spoken to him on a few occasions. She was never sued by Farrah, so all her claims as usual are false."
The single mom admitted to fulfilling a personal fantasy by being with James on and off camera, and how she felt duped by the XXX-rated star:
"I was dating him, getting to know him, it wasn't like we were in-depth. I don't live in LA so I was going between Miami and Iowa and LA. He said, "I do adult films for a living, I'm single, I'm just hanging out and I would really like to get to know you more. I was a naïve 21-year-old, my conversations were about getting to know someone, figuring him out. I was just hanging out with him. He would take me out, drive me around, like any other possible girlfriend. We would always hang out and be out publicly. There's public pictures of us, holding hands, being boyfriend, being girlfriend. I've had sex with other celebrities and it's ok to have fantasies. At the time I was 21, I was very vulnerable and I was going through a lot of sh*t in my life. James was so kind and so nice at first. I'm very specific about the guys I don't like and what I'm not okay with. I don't like people who smoke and have tattoos. He acted like he didn't smoke for a while but about the third time we hung out, he was smoking, acting more like his real self. He was putting on a show for me."
Back in 2014 she revealed that she was a rape survivor — but never named any names, until now when asked directly if James Deen was the person who violated her:
"From my intensive therapy, yes. Under my doctor and everything that I've been through, that is what has gone on. I had some bruises. I feel like he's not aware of how his grips will be, how things will be, and other women have voiced this already. I'm lucky I didn't date him for a long period of time and I'm lucky that I didn't let him physically beat me because I'm sure that's what they [other women] had to deal with. Deen said at that time he didn't do drink or drugs. But clearly I was drugged, and my legal staff and my therapist know that. I don't know if he just drugged women to take advantage of them or what was going on. I experienced extreme anger problems and abusive behavior from Deen. He treated me like he wanted to break me and ruin my career as a reality star-celebrity, as many witnessed. I no longer wanted to be around him."
Farrah believes that Deen was out to ruin her career as a TV personality:
"It was a set-up against me by James Deen. I can only talk about my situation, I can't talk about anyone else's. I got dropped from MTV's Teen Mom back when all this happened, a show I created and starred in. He conspired what he did with me, this is the truth. The rape victims coming forward are telling the truth as well. They would have no reason to be lying or defamatory in what they're saying. I'm thankful that I have separated myself and gotten beyond how horrible, evil, abusive and a rapist James Deen is. He was very jealous and said derogatory things about me, calling me a porn star. I'm not used to that world. I feel every time someone calls me a porn star, it's like them, to me, seeming like a rapist and a derogatory, abusive womanizing manipulator like James Deen. I'm saying that because that's how it made me feel - because I also have amazing friends who are porn stars and I'm proud of them."
As for how she is coping three years later, she finds solace in intensive therapy sessions:
"I can no longer live in shock, so scared and lying to myself. I've had so much intensive therapy since, some seen on VH1's Couples Therapy. I've learned and I need to admit [what happened] – this was conspired, this was a form of rape. I was drugged and manipulated. He's a disgusting person. I'm very thankful, I've been recovering and very accepting of my therapy. That's something very big for me because normally, I don't admit those things. Stoya, Tori, Ashley, Angel – all of these great women who are so strong and I'm so proud of them for coming forward and my solidarity is with them. I feel so bad for those women. And everything else that I've seen in the adult entertainment industry and the hurt that those women go through. I don't feel that it's right how some of those men act."
The Omaha native is finally ready to move on with her life:
"I no longer need to feel I'm locked down and let this rule my life – I'm too f*cking busy for this. The weak are strong - we don't understand how strong of a person we are until we go through so much sh*t. And I'm glad that celebrities like Amber Rose, with her SlutWalk, and myself, and many others are speaking nationally to this. This is where I feel I can help the world, by sharing this. I almost lost everything I built in my career because of James Deen and I had so many hurtful things in my life to deal with. No one needs their life to be ruined the way he ruined mine."
Wow. All of the recent allegations are incredibly sad, and we can only hope that there aren't any more victims and Deen faces the consequences for his alleged actions.
