Farrah Abraham lied, made about $10,000 (not $1 million) from her adult video

Teen Mom Farrah Abraham went pretty far to uh, create and promote her adult video. She did something that most “celebrities” turned porn stars avoid on camera, hence the title of her video “Backdoor Teen Mom.” We know that Farrah lied about the tape’s origins. She has continued to insist that she made it with a “boyfriend” for her own use. This is despite the fact that it was professionally filmed with a famous porn star who has said that Farrah is lying about the tape ever being personal. So is it any surprise that Farrah also lied about how much she made from the tape? She tried to play like she made seven figures from selling it, but sources say there’s no way that happened. In fact a lot of “celebrities” make much less from their sex tapes then you might expect.

At least Farrah Abraham made major bank off her porn video with James Deen, right?

Not quite, claim some in the adult industry.

While the 22-year-old former “Teen Mom” star claims to have sold what would become “Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom” to Vivid Entertainment for $1.5 million, a source close to the situation told FOX411, Abraham actually sold the tape for about $10,000.

Meanwhile, professional sex tape broker Kevin Blatt told the website that former “Pippi Longstocking” star Tami Erin recently received the same offer from Vivid after she shot a sex tape of her own.

“Tami Erin was offered $10,000 up-front which is standard for Vivid,” Blatt told FOX411. “It is what they offer every celebrity, not a million dollars.”

Other adult industry insiders confirmed Blatt’s claims, telling FOX411 that the former “Teen Mom” star “got $10,000 up-front and 30 percent of sales, minus the cost of production.”

It wouldn’t be the first time Abraham has bent the truth, since the whole porn video was meant to be marketed as a “leaked” sex tape in the first place. Of course, that didn’t work out when her co-star Deen refused to go along with the plan, and told everyone that he had been paid to film the X-rated video with Abraham.

Though Abraham may not have been paid much for the film up-front, that doesn’t mean she hasn’t profited overall. In July, TMZ reported that Abraham raked in close to $120,000 in royalties in just two months. The former reality star’s porn video was indeed wildly successful and received more than 2 million visitors in just the first 12 hours after it was released. She is also poised to bring in the bucks from her new line of sex toys made by Topco Sales, which will be available starting in January 2014.

The original article goes on to say that “Paris and Kim made millions, but that’s because it was a different time. People were buying DVDs then.” Paris is said to have banked $13 million while Kim earned $8 million in 2007. Remember how Laurence Fishburne’s daughter wanted to emulate Kim Kardashian’s career? Well she made just $60,000 total.

A “celebrity” turned adult film actress named Jasmine Waltz told Fox News that she made $125,000 for selling her tape to Vivid but that they never paid her a dime afterwards. She said “Vivid told me they would give $125,000 and 25 percent of the back end, all the sales that are made. Basically, you’ll never see the back end after advertisement. You won’t get the money. It’s a very untrustworthy business.

That actually makes me sad. It’s not that I want great things for these young porn actresses or anything, but you at least assume that when they sign with a big company like Vivid that they’re making tons of cash. They’re making better money than most adult film stars, but it’s not retirement money even in the best cases. I blame Paris and Kim.

Maybe that explains why Farrah had fans buy her things from her Amazon wish list. She needs to hustle. Farrah’s latest stunt involved having her chin implant removed and then documenting the process. Prior to that she had a cast made of her lady parts so that a custom sex toy could be made from it. Of course she had that professionally photographed too. I wonder how much she got paid for that, $50 and a case of beer?

    Farrah lied? I’m shocked! ~said no one ever

  2. Serenity now says:

    She really pi$$ed her life away, and she is what 22 years old?

  3. DanaG says:

    LOL I just don’t understand why she did this. She has wealthy parents and surely she made money from MTV. She was going to culinary school so when did she decide doing porn was a good career choice and a good example for her daughter? What some people will do for 15 minutes of fame.

  4. Melly says:

    That chin implant in the top photo makes her look like a ventriloquist’s dummy when she smiles.

  5. Mika says:

    10 000 or 1 000 000, it still doesn’t make her look less of an attention seeker.

  6. Dawn says:

    She and girls like her are by-products of Kim Kraptrashian. Like it or not, they see where her sex tape got her and think they can do it too. However these girls do not have mothers like PMK and the backing of Ryan Seacrest. And that is why many women dislike who Kimmode truly is under all that make up and designer clothes. This poor girl will do anything for fame. She is sad.

  7. Darkladi says:

    Her poor child…

    • strickchic says:

      +1 … She doesn’t seem to grasp the idea of being a REAL mother. That includes being totally selfless and doing things that benefit your children. She has no concern that her daughter will be exposed to all of this at some point and I can only imagine the humiliation. She is the epitome of a spoiled brat, who has always gotten her way and when she doesn’t have attention for two seconds, she stomps her feet (makes a porno) just to get some attention for anyone. Disgusting excuse for a woman/mother.

      • Dommy Dearest says:

        Let’s not forget she said she was going to show her daughter her sex tape when she was old enough (about 13 to 14 she said) as a way to teach her sex ed.

  8. Mia4S says:

    I don’t give a damn about her but where’s her child? With the grandparents? Hopefully.

  9. anne says:

    Omg! This is gold!

    I really feel bad for her daughter.

  10. Maria says:

    ladies when you sell your dignity at least make a proper deal

  11. BW says:

    What is it with these “teenagers?” I’m in my 50’s and I look younger than they do.

  12. Roxy says:

    She use to be pretty, when she was doing teen mom. Why would she mess with her face?!!! She’s such a lost little girl. 🙁

  13. Eleonor says:

    I remember watching something about the porn industry and related business, and the journalist was interviewing an actress and she said something like: “You know when you enter in this business you think you are going to make easy money, you think you’ll be the superstar, reality is much more thougher and very less paied”. I suppose she was right.

  14. eliza says:

    I didn’t believe this trash box for a second.

  15. Walt Jr says:

    Wow, glad I learned a valuable lesson. Who woulda thought that the porn industry is shady?

  16. Quinn says:

    Stupid and vain is a dangerous combo.

  17. Merritt says:

    I’m not surprised. The money in porn is from producing.

    I do feel bad for some of the women who do porn because I think it can look like a quick way to make money. However the stigma of being in porn lasts forever.

    A few women who have left the industry, and then attempt to go on to other careers, have been fired after being outed by someone. I don’t think that is fair.

  18. Ag says:

    That’s just sad. I was hoping that at least her daughter would be set financially, since I’m sure that poor kid will need money for an army of therapists.

  19. Sandy says:

    “It’s a very untrustworthy business.”

    Understatement of the century. Someone has to be TOLD this? And I don’t feel sorry for their supposed “victims” unless they are forced into it. People who choose it deserve what they get.

  20. Truthful says:

    “$50 and a case of beer”

    LOL!!! probably

  21. jojo says:

    she’s not that pretty, thats why she’s not making much money on this. Way more porn actresses are pretty than her.

    LEt a real celebrity like Jolie or Aniston sell a porn movie, there will be no 10k payout for that. Though any real celebrity has enough self respect and class not to care about this crap to begin with..

  22. DEB says:

    Well then how the hell did she afford that Lamborghini? *raises eyebrow*

  23. kellyinseattle says:

    Even with all the “work” she’s had to her face, she still reminds me of a horse…anyone see her on Dr. Phil…they both drive me nuts but she really made a complete ass (no pun intended) of herself.

  24. Veeeeeery Veeerytas says:

    Ten grand is still far too much, but I suppose it will pay for her STD treatments.

  25. janie says:

    Who cares & who’s surprised that she lied? She is trash!

  26. Helvetica says:

    22 and looks 45
