In the tell all, the Teen Mom OG alum discussed her mother Debra Danielsen’s domestic abuse arrest against her back in 2010.
She wrote: “I got kicked out of my house after calling the police for domestic violence, yet the police pulled out a gun and said he was going to shoot my mom while pointing at her head, yet my mom had two kitchen knives in her hands, and I was bloody when I had to talk them both into calming down.
“The cycle of trauma and violence would not continue or someone was literally [going] to die over a call to stop violence.”
Farrah, who was 18 at the time, claimed the arrest led to being “threatened by CPS to take my child because of elders’ actions that were unsafe.”
She wrote that she lived out of her car with Sophia, 12, for a couple of days.
According to reports, Debra allegedly grabbed her daughter by the throat and “hit her along the side of her head and hit her in the mouth” with Sophia present.
Debra pleaded guilty.
She got a suspended sentence of 30 days in jail and received probation.
The aftermath of the arrest was featured on Teen Mom.
Farrah and Debra’s relationship has been rocky through the years, as they have been estranged at times.
In Farrah’s final Teen Mom seasons before her firing, she was working on her relationship with her mother in therapy.
Farrah was fired in 2017 over her treatment of the crew and involvement in adult webcam videos.
Debra, who goes by her rap name DebzOG, visited Farrah and Sophia in Los Angeles earlier this month.
Farrah’s self-published book has come under fire by fans, as they claim it was riddled with typos and grammatical errors.
The MTV alum included a disclaimer that explained “this book is self-published by Farrah Abraham any and all grammatical errors, typo’s, are due to typing on mobile, or technical errors, Farrah Abraham proofed this and it was ready to be published.”
The note continued: “This book is self-published by Farrah Abraham who believes in you.”
