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.
