Farrah Abraham 'Over' Her 4-Year-Old Daughter Sophia? 'Teen Mom 2' Star Says Her Daughter Has 'Her Own Life'

Former reality star Farrah Abraham is moving on from MTV past as a pregnant teen and young adult on "16 & Pregnant" and "Teen Mom 2," but the 22-year-old isn't done bidding for fame, pursuing a host of other projects from music to professional cooking, modeling and recently, pornography.
Earlier this year the star allegedly accepted a deal from Vivid Entertainment for nearly $1 million for her (allegedly leaked) sex tape she made with James Deen. Despite the widespread public criticism of her parenting skills and controversial public image, Abraham isn't afraid to say that she may be putting her career ahead of her daughter.
"It's healthy that we have a break," Abraham recently told In Touch Weekly. "She has her own life and is doing her own thing, and I'm doing mine."
A Hollywood Gossip blogger responded with outrage, calling her the "worst mom ever" and accusing the young mother of neglect, reminding readers that her daughter Sophia is only four, arguably way too young to live her own life.
This isn't the first time Abraham has put her foot in her mouth. On an episode of "The Dr. Phil Show" earlier this year, the star irritated the television host by circiling around questions and refusing to be honest about the origins and purposes of her her sex tape (at the time she insisted on calling it a "personal video").
Her hot topic DUI was also brought up during the segment, in which Abraham also refused to admit she had been driving drink, insisting that the car was in park by the time an officer (whom she claimed overreacted) approached her.
Abraham also made a recent appearance on "The Howard Stern Show," in which she discussed her porn video, "Backdoor Teen Mom," has been undergoing further plastic surgery and unsuccessfully attempting to woo Charlie Sheen, ending up in a media battle with the 48-year-old actor.
She's even admitted to OK! magazine that she takes her daughter to counseling "once a month," as she wants to make sure her daughter isn't affected by her constant traveling.
"Every time I leave, it gets harder on Sophia because she wants come with me," Abraham told the magazine last month. However, she is not ashamed of what she calls her path to becoming a successful businesswoman.
"I do tell her that I go to nightclubs," she said. "I do tell her that Mommy will be here in this city at that club. I make her aware. I have nothing to hide."
