Vivid Entertainment released Farrah Abraham's sex tape, "Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom", on Monday, May 7 and it attracted more than 2 million viewers in only 12 hours, according to TMZ. Because of that, Vivid's servers reportedly went down for nine minutes.
Reacting to the news, the former "Teen Mom" star said, "Well it crashed the website, so it obviously did amazing! I am very proud and humbled that I have a good body." Not only did the porn crash the website, but it also crashed the record previously held by Kim Kardashian and Ray J, whose sex tape was viewed by "only" 600,000 people in the same time frame.
Following the success of her tape release, Farrah said that she had no plan on watching the video she stars in with porn king James Deen. On Monday, May 6, she tweeted, "Well looks like Vivid released their version of my video..ya I'm not watching, but thank you for all the positive compliment #XXX." She added, "I know what's out-Don't talk to [me] about it. Thanks."
Abraham initially denied that she starred in a sex tape before she admitted that the video did exist and she made it for her personal use. A few days later, she sold the video to porn company Vivid Entertainment for a seven-figure payday and said, "I am very pleased with the outcome and to have this opportunity to be an entrepreneur in another unexpected light in my life."
She continued, "This is a risk for me to take, however I feel comfortable having given the rights to Vivid, a company I know can handle the media and press surrounding my sexuality."
