Farrah Abraham Alleges Porn Star James Deen Drugged and Raped Her
UPDATE (12/8): In an interview with The Daily Beast, James Deen said via email that he’s "shocked" and “completely baffled” by the wealth of allegations against him. He claims his breakup with ex-girlfriend Stoya (whose revelatory tweets sparked an onslaught of rape and abuse accusations against Deen from multiple women) was “messy” and that she “made threats toward [him] and harassed one of [his] employees.”
Deen says, "the reason Stoya made this claim could be as simple as her finding out that my current girlfriend and I are moving in together," but maintains that he "can’t speak to her reasoning or motivations."
Deen goes on to deny the accusations against him, saying, "I have no desire to blame people who consider themselves victims or throw stones. I will just say this: my job as a performer for rough sex companies is to engage in certain acts. If at any point I pushed boundaries past the point of comfort, I am sorry. I have always tried to respect peoples’ limits and safe words and operated within that space. If someone expressed anything to me I honored the request with the fullest care."
He also says he is not currently under investigation and has “no intention of filing defamation suits against false accusations.”

Farrah Abraham is the latest in an ever-growing list of women to accuse popular male porn star James Deen of physical abuse and rape.
According to the Daily Mail, Abraham claims Deen (whose real name is Bryan Sevilla) raped and drugged her while the two were casually dating in 2013. She said, "James Deen raped me for his benefit of fame. He conspired against me with others that I thought were my friends at the time and that was very hurtful. I let it all go and I wanted to move on; due to the public and others in the media believing an abusive womanizer, sex addict, disgusting, unprofessional, adult entertainer's lies.”
Abraham continued, saying she did not report the rape to police and instead settled things privately with Deen: "This has already been privately taken care of and still, and always is, consistently being monitored by my legal team."
The former Teen Mom star says she met Deen through her manager at the time who worked in the porn industry. (Her former manager, Gina Rodriguez, refutes this claim.) The two went on to make a sex tape in 2013, which Abraham maintains was never meant to be released publicly, but she wound up selling it to adult film company Vivid Entertainment once she found out it was about to be leaked.
In 2014, she revealed to In Touch magazine that she regretted filming the video, and a month later claimed she "was drugged and raped more than once. I allowed the [wrong] type of people into my life," though she withheld the name of her abuser at the time.
Abraham has since identified Deen as her alleged rapist, saying, "From my intensive therapy, yes. Under my doctor and everything that I've been through, that is what has gone on...Deen said at that time he didn't do drink or drugs. But clearly I was drugged, and my legal staff and my therapist know that.”
Abraham's accusations against the porn star are among many that have come to light over the past week, all of which were sparked by an admission from Deen's ex-girlfriend, porn actress Stoya. She wrote on Twitter, "James Deen held me down and f---ked me while I said no, stop, used my safeword. I just can't nod and smile when people bring him up anymore."
A growing number of women have since come forth with similar accusations against Deen, who responded via Twitter, writing, "There have been some egregious claims made against me on social media. I want to assure my friends, fans and colleagues that these allegations are both false and defamatory. I respect women and I know and respect limits both professionally and privately." BDSM porn production company Kink has severed all ties with the actor, Buzzfeed News reported, while production house Evil Angel has suspended their working relationship with Deen "until more information is available."
