Farrah Abraham was suing Viacom for $5 million after she was let go from the Teen Mom series.

The court documents were filed on Tuesday in Texas.
Farrah, 26, claims in her lawsuit against the company that she was let go because she refused to cut ties with the adult film industry, TMZ reports.
She starred in a adult film in 2013 as well as web camera shows and had strip club appearances.
Farrah also has a line of lingerie and sex toys.

According to The Blast, she accused Viacom of 'wrongfully terminating her employment because she did not conform to gender stereotypes.'
Farrah claims that the production company ridiculed her, degraded, sex shamed, humiliated, and harassed.
The Blast also reported that executive producer Morgan J. Freeman threatened to 'end her career with MTV' as well as 'sabotage future deals.'
Farrah said during the confrontation 'she feared for her life.'

On a recent episode of Teen Mom OG, she was seen being told by the producer that she was too hard to deal with on many levels.
Freeman flew to her hometown of Omaha, Nebraska to confront the star on a number of subjects.
During the face-to-face, she is told she has 'no compassion for other people,' is 'difficult' and lacked 'respect.' And there was also a problem with her explicit adult webcam career.

The executive producer told her he had a problem with how she treated people who worked on the show, specifically producer Kristin.
Farrah had the woman 'reassigned.'
He said: 'We want to look at how people are treated. For example, Kristen, who we all love, who we think is doing a great job, isn't here today.
'You don't snap your fingers and say new producer and we fly one in. I think some compassion and understanding that everybody is working.'

Abraham, who is mom to nine-year-old daughter Sophia, was defensive.
'I am so compassionate, I am so understanding, I am working my a** off just like everyone.'
He didn't back down. 'Right, but you do have very little compassion and empathy for other people. Do you feel like you respect the people around you trying to make the show?' Freeman asked.

I respect a lot of people who respect me,' she said.
When he asked about Kristin again, she said: 'I'm sure she's great, I'm sure many other people on Teen Mom, she can just do bounce around and annoy the sh** out of everyone else. There are a lot of people out there who probably need production jobs, it's not that challenging.'
He then brought the conversation back to how Farrah is too much trouble.
'The amount of work that goes into keeping you happy with crew, has bubbled up to a point that we have to figure out to move forward. Out of 9 moms you're the only one that's the problem,' Freeman said.
'I'm sorry, f***ing shoot me for being who I am,' she said.
He then said: 'Right … difficult.'
Then came time to talk about her porn career.
'You had said that you weren't going to continue to do the adult videos to us,' he said.
'The explicit nature, I think it has people concerned. It's the same type of behavior. You can choose to do whatever you want, nobody's here to cast judgment on anything, but if you choose to work in the adult industry, you can't continue to film your show for Teen Mom.'
'This was a conversation that happened above me and without me and was given to me to bring to you. It's basically a decision that we're asking you. You have had this critical role from 16 and Pregnant all the way through this. Nobody's saying you can't do that stuff, it's just if you're gonna go down that path, you can't keep shooting this path,' finished Freeman.
She then called him and said she had decided what she wanted to do.
'Honestly, webcams or adult entertainment or healthy sex lives or safe sex or all these things. All that stuff is more beneficial and I will always continue to do that if it's my own show, not on MTV anymore,' she said.
'There are so many paths for me in my life. Hell, I'm only 26.'
He wishes her the best.
She added: 'Well then I will just have my lawyer contact you guys and I wish you guys all the best. Thank you, have a great night.'
Monday night's Teen Mom OG ended with the note, 'Farrah is no longer filming with Teen Mom.'
In February, she announced she was suing Teen Mom parent company Viacom for $5 million.
