Former "Teen Mom" star Farrah Abraham is clearly desperate for attention, as the porn star with whom she filmed an X-rated video admitted that the concept of a leaked "sex tape" was supposed to be a setup.
Yesterday, news broke that a sex tape featuring the 21-year-old mother of one, and an unidentified male partner was being shopped around, before porn star James Deen confirmed that he was her sex partner -- and it was a professional project.
Deen, who stars in his first mainstream film opposite Lindsay Lohan in "The Canyons," told TMZ that he was approached by a porn company that wishes to remain nameless to film what would be passed off as a leaked "sex tape." The 27-year-old adult film actor told the website the scheme fell apart once he and Abraham were spotted holding hands as they left the Vivid Entertainment offices together, and admitted he has a problem with lying.
"I think what happened is that [the porn company was] going to pass it off as a 'sex tape' and somebody saw us coming out of a building together and people asked me what's going on, so I was like we're making a porno!"
So much for the former reality star's attempt at denying that a tape even existed.
Abraham hasn't commented since her "sex tape" scheme fell through, but she did pose for a bikini photo shoot right after filming with Deen.
UPDATE: TMZ reports that Abrahams claims she shot the video with Deen because she wanted to be able to look back on it when she was old, but she's willing to sell it for $2 million.
The former reality star says she wants nothing to do with Deen now that they've shot the video, telling TMZ that if her ex-boyfriend Derek Underwood, who died in a car accident in 2008, were alive, she should have rather shot the video with him.
