AceShowbiz - Farrah Abraham is setting the record straight. The former "Teen Mom" cast member denies reports saying that Child Protective Services (or CPS) was called on her as she allegedly abandoned her 10-year-old daughter, Sophia.
The rumors started after Sophia posted a video on TikTok which was pretty normal for a kid at her age. However, fans noticed that she was alone in the home as Farrah was in Mexico with her rumored boyfriend, Daniel Ishag. Later, it was rumored that CPS had been called with a screenshot being circulated online.
"Farrah abandoned Sophia home alone in their apartment to fly to Mexico to celebrate this boy toy, Daniel Ishag's, birthday. Police have been notified and CPS is investigating," read the message in the screenshot, which was said to Farrah's mom Debra Danielsen. Meanwhile, Sophia's video was later deleted.
Debra then broke her silence to deny the reports. "Sophia wasn't even on her phone. She wasn't alone, never made a post and was swimming," she claimed. "Farrah has not done anything wrong here."
Despite the clarification, it didn't seem to stop people from spreading and believing in the rumors. That prompted Farrah to directly address the matter. "Here' the TRUTH on Child Protective Services being called on me regarding Sophia," she wrote alongside a video of here meditating.
"I'm DONE staying silent. This is the one and only time I will speak on this bulls**t. Haters, stay jealous," she added.
She doubled down her explanation in a statement published by Champion Daily. "Since I have had continued harassment, stalkers, and haters from the 'Teen Mom' show continue to call Police on me after being hated on the show, I have taken extensive precautions against those who sell stories, lies, and harass my family," read the statement.
It continued, "Sophia is protected from the evil people and it's sad people are jealous of my dating life, and try to affect my family in a negative way. We live a great life and are not affected by harassment of any sort and I will not tolerate unsafe illegal actions by others lying, stalking, or harassing my family."
"I see I need to post less on social media since cyberbullying and hate still has not been filtered out on social media. My father and family always watch Sophia when I’m away, as sadly nannies have proven to not be trustworthy," she added.
