Lucky number 4 in our Teen Mom OK! Investigates series is Farrah Abraham, and as you can probably imagine, Farrah is the richest of them all. She’s basically worth more than Jenelle Evans, Leah Messer, and Chelsea Houska combined! Keep reading to see how the numbers add up and from where Farrah gets all that dough. Well, aside from her sex tape. Girl’s got other gigs too, ya know…
Of course, Farrah has a bigger wallet (and ego…) thanks to her sex tape, but pre sex tape she was already raking in the big bucks. She made $75,000 a season plus a $20,000 bonus from MTV for each season of Teen Mom.
She also has a few book deals. Her memoir, My Teenage Dream Ended, made the New York Times bestseller list and earned the almost-22-year-old about $115,000. Her second book, a children’s book called Passy Perfume, earned her an additional $45k.
And then there’s the press stuff. Farrah got offered $5,000 in October when she posed for the cover of In Touch after her plastic surgery. The same mag also paid her $2,500 in August of 2012 for an interview about how her daughter, Sophia, saved her from suicide.
As for photos? Paparazzi agencies gave Farrah a total of about $5,000 in the past 12 months for exclusive photo ops. She also gets about $800 a month for her association with Dial a Star, about $20,000 a year for modeling work and appearances, another $20,000 a year for endorsement deals, and about $25,000 for her tomato sauce business. Also, Sulia pays her about $2,000 a month for posting on their site regularly.
But then, there was the sex tape that changed everything. A sex tape broker who works with Steve Hirsch from Vivid Entertainment told us exclusively that Farrah scored $1.5 million for the sex tape, even though it was reported that she took in only $1 million.
This summer, Farrah will be going on a summer tour at strip and pole dancing clubs, raking in $10,000 per appearance. She has nine booked so far, so that’s a total of $90,000.
Farrah is also currently endorsing Raspberry Tones Weight Loss Pills, where she rakes in another $120,000.
But what does Farrah spend all her money on? Aside from Sophia, Farrah’s biggest expense recently was her plastic surgery. She spent $16,000 on a nose and chin implant in 2012, and spent $5,000 on her boob job in 2010. That’s $21,000 total.
Farrah was living at home in Nebraska with Debra and Michael (minus that stint she had living in Florida when the final season of Teen Mom was taping), so she didn’t have much to pay in terms of living expenses, but now she is living with Sophia in Austin, Texas. She’s also currently eyeing a home in Los Angeles in Justin Bieber’s neighborhood which is reportedly worth $3.3 million!
So what’s Farrah Abraham’s net worth? $1.75 million and rising (fast!). But kids, this does NOT mean getting pregnant will also get you rich and famous. No no no. Let’s all learn from her what not to do.
