Farrah Abraham Opens Up About Her Abusive Past

She's always had a somewhat rocky relationship with her parents, but Farrah Abraham recently opened up big-time about being abused as a child, and from what she said, there's no way you could call it a simple spanking.


The Teen Mom OG star was being interviewed on fellow reality star Brandi Glanville's podcast Brandi Glanville Unfiltered when she got real about the kind of environment that she grew up in, and why she's okay with her daughter Sophia spending time alone with her parents, Debra Danielson and Michael Abraham.

Farrah's talked about her parents' abuse before, so when Brandi brought it up, she dived right in. She said that things are different now than when she was a child, which is why she trusts them to take care of her 6-year-old.

"My family and I have such a different dynamic now," she revealed. "We've talked through a lot of our abuse. Not everyone's a perfect parent, but we do learn and we grow from that. I'm not trying to be harsh on my family because it does make them sad to think back about how they used to be and some of their choices."

Farrah said that those choices included beating her black-and-blue when she disobeyed as a child. Her parents allegedly used a belt to beat her into submission, leaving bruises and welts on her body.

"At that time we really didn't [have a relationship] because of some of the abusive things that had happened," she confessed. "My parents got put into jail, both my mom and my dad."

Dang -- I'm glad that Farrah has come to peace with it, but it does explain a lot about her own behavior, doesn't it? It seems like she never got taught proper boundaries or restraint. I don't care if people are pro-spanking or not, you can't call leaving a child bruised anything but abuse, and no kid deserves that.
