Farrah Abraham’s father is speaking out after her shocking claim that she was physically abused by both of her parents as a child. But surprisingly, Michael Abraham isn’t confirming or denying the allegations, simply saying that he is ‘praying’ for his daughter.
Former Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham recently claimed that her parents, Michael Abraham and Debra Michaelson, used a leather belt to beat her when she misbehaved as child. Farrah’s father responded to her accusations on Feb. 7, saying that no one knows or understands the “pain” that Farrah has experienced in her life.

Farrah was very specific as she detailed her violent past — which she claims includes physical abuse she endured at the hands of her parents, as well as being drugged and raped while promoting the release of her first sex tape. While Farrah’s father won’t confirm or deny the allegations she made against him and his ex-wife, Debra, he admits that their family has a troubled past.
“People that trash her and our family don’t know the problems and pain Farrah and us have had to deal with…” Michael explained on Facebook. “We are strong. We have hope. I pray for my daughter and every woman that has had to deal with such matters.”
We’re betting Farrah isn’t satisfied with her father’s vague response.
