5. Farrah may act out due to the abuse she’s allegedly endured as a child
While it’s easy to dismiss the star’s short temper as childish, In Touch Weekly reminds us her childhood wasn’t always the easiest. She’s even talked about the abuse she went through as a child on a Teen Mom reunion special with Dr. Drew in the past.
On the reunion, she called her abuse “sad” and said, “I don’t think people should have to go through with that.” Farrah also dismissed it as “just a part of life,” though, and that’s when Dr. Drew stepped in. “Stop dismissing it,” he told her. “It’s sad to have been hurt as a child, right? Super sad.”

6. She’s claimed her mother has physically attacked her before
If there’s anyone perhaps more infamous than Farrah, it’s her mother, Debra. Us Weekly reported in 2010 that Debra was arrested and charged with assault for attacking Farrah.
It started with an argument over “child care issues as well as other problems” and allegedly escalated from there. At the height of the argument, Debra allegedly grabbed Farrah by the throat and “hit her along the side of her head and hit her in the mouth,” according to the police report. Police also noticed Farrah had multiple cuts near her mouth.

7. Debra claims she was actually the one who was attacked
Farrah’s mother has an entirely different side of the story when it comes to the attack. In her tell-all memoir, Debra claims it was actually her own daughter who started the physical attack, Radar Online reports. “Farrah has beat me up, pulled out a large amount of my hair, I had been crying from the pain,” she claimed. Debra then said Farrah called the police and told them her mother assaulted her first.
As for Farrah’s injuries, Debra claims she tried to “break away” from Farrah’s beating, and that’s what caused the cuts.

8. Farrah called her mother ‘evil’
This should say everything you need to know about their relationship. Debra expressed concern that Farrah may be mentally ill when she appeared on Shot Topics, People reports. While she called Farrah “kind,” “loving,” and “sweet and very compassionate,” she also suggested Farrah may have borderline personality disorder or narcissism.
Farrah wasn’t too pleased with that. “It’s evil and alarming,” she said regarding Debra’s comments. Farrah also mentioned her therapists think Debra might just be jealous of her fame.
