'Teen Mom' Cocaine Confession: Farrah Admits To Doing Drugs Just After Daughter's Birth
Farrah Abraham constantly defends her controversial parenting choices. But when it comes to 7-year-old Sophia's newborn days, she can't stand by all her decisions.
The Teen Mom OG star, now 25, began partying up a storm in bars and clubs just three months after her daughter's birth— and even did cocaine, she confessed in her shocking tell-all book.
Stressed from single teen motherhood (her baby daddy, Derek Underwood, had died in a car accident while she was seven months pregnant), "I needed an escape," she wrote in her 2012 memoir, My Teenage Dream Ended.
She then ditched her infant daughter with her parents and drowned her sorrows with friends.
"I was partying too much; going out to just drink, mingle and escape the stress of my life," she wrote, adding that she came home at 2 or 3 in the morning every weekend. "It quickly became an issue."
On her last night out as a self-described "party girl," she "drank too much" and snorted cocaine, she revealed— and had a complete meltdown.
"I started crying about Derek to some guy I was kind of into, and everything I had been holding down for months came spewing out of my like vomit," Abraham said. "The next morning I woke up looking and feeling like a mess, and my nose hurt from the coke."
"I'm not proud of this episode, but it was a good wake up call for me."
Though she claims she left partying behind right then and there, Abraham was arrested for driving under the influence in 2013, and soon checked into rehab for alcohol abuse. (She plead guilty, and was sentenced to probation.)
Three years later, the healthier single mom has written several novels, opened a frozen yogurt shop, and even starred in a new adult film.
