Life’s a beach when you’re Farrah Abraham! The former Teen Mom OG star isn’t losing any sleep about backing out of the celebrity boxing match that she trained for and promoted for months. Farrah was scheduled to be in Atlantic City for the fight on Saturday, Nov. 10 — and instead, she hopped a plane and went on vacation with her daughter Sophia in the Maldives. On the day of her match, Farrah took to Instagram to send a message confirming that she has no regrets about dropping out of the fight.
“Always winning when your views are this amazing #antibullying,” the 27-year-old wrote on Instagram. “Always listen to your gut to do the right thing, it will save your energy, stay away from evil drama [and] focus on your successes [and] talents. Boxing will forever be a part of my life [and] has shown me the above. I’m grateful I no longer tolerate the time wasting bad people who use me. #freedom #winning #victory #farrahabraham #strength #livingmybestlife.”
Farrah announced that she would be removing herself from the match at the very last minute — just one week before the scheduled event. At first, Farrah claimed that the reason why she dropped out was because the promoters allegedly failed to provide her with adequate transportation and accommodations in New Jersey for the weekend of the fight. But she later went on Instagram live and revealed another part of the reason was because the promoters hired her enemy, former Mob Wives star Drita D’Avanzo, as the referee for the match.
“The celebrity boxing thing, the person who’s in charge and the other promoters who are associated can not and does not know how to do business. I cannot put myself in a liable situation where they have someone publicly say that they wanted to beat my face in or things of that nature,” Farrah said on Instagram live. “Again, just putting me in a bad situation, a legal problem with police. So the best thing to do is just stay away from that. So that’s what I’m going to have to do.”
