Farrah Abraham's Child Abuse Claims Are Extremely Confusing

farrah abraham selfie Seems there is no end in sight to Farrah Abraham divulging every last upsetting, unnerving, or controversial detail about herself. Right on the tail of saying that she approves of her daughter Sophia getting plastic surgery, she's making claims that both of her parents -- Michael Abraham and Debra Danielson -- were physically violent toward her. She tells InTouch, "[They] would beat me with a belt if I acted out." Apparently, she also suffered "cuts, bruises, welts, swelling, and scars" as a result.

While Debra did slap Farrah on Teen Mom and has yet to speak out about the accusations, Michael responded, "I did not abuse her and any discipline was just and fair."

As for Farrah's reaction?

My father has done other things, and I could tell you the day, I could tell you what he did, and I have moved on from those things. My dad's writing a book, maybe he'll be open in his book about that.

Hmm ... so she's moved on, but she's still talking about these disturbing experiences on a national platform? Seems a bit questionable. What's the motivation? Is it helping her truly heal and move past it, or is it just another ploy for money and exposure? 

Unfortunately, it's hard not to at least ask that question when it comes to Farrah. She surely hasn't been above putting her most private moments out there in exchange for another 15 minutes before ... Not to say that this latest confession isn't all sorts of heartbreaking and horrifying. It's just hard to understand what she's after. If it's inner peace, well, more power to her. If it's anything else, it's even more reason to tune out her next big confession.

Why do you think Farrah is talking about this now?
