Farrah Abraham has lasted years as a single mom, but couldn’t make it through 10 days of rehab without getting kicked out. Former Teen Mom star Abraham was booted out of the Florida rehab facility Lukens Institute for bad behavior and acting as a “disruptive influence” on other patients. Abraham was kicked out of treatment after eight days, just two days shy of completing her program.
A source told Radar Online that Abraham’s outrageous behavior included regular arguments with staff members, bullying other patients, inviting paparazzi to take photos of her and making outrageous diva demands. She also tried to take photos with the infamous Tan Mom, a.k.a. Patricia Krentcil, who is currently being treated for alcohol abuse. Her “challenging” behavior even led staff at Lukens to contemplate kicking her out well before the eight-day mark.
“Farrah pleaded with them to stay last week and pledged her commitment to the program,” said the source. “Lukens was reluctant but offered her a second chance. The staff didn’t throw her out then because they wanted her to get the treatment she needs.” Abraham is reportedly expected to graduate from the program despite being kicked out.
Abraham being kicked out of rehab is particularly surprising since her program was extremely lenient. Although she was followed by a sober companion, she was allowed to conduct business and go about her daily life as normal. There will also not be any refunds for the remaining days of her treatment. The 10-day stint of rehab at Lukens reportedly set her back a whopping $12,000. However, the sum is chump change compared to the $1.5 million she reportedly pocketed for her sex tape earlier this year, Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom.
Abraham was arrested last March for DUI and pleaded guilty to the charge last month. She was sentenced to six months of probation and a $500 fine, in addition to being ordered to attend an alcohol education class. She is also forbidden from drinking alcohol during her probation and had her driving privileges revoked for 60 days. When Abraham is allowed to resume driving again, she must install an ignition interlock in her car that forces her to submit to a Breathalyzer test before driving.
“At this time in my life, I need to stay focused on the positive to get through all of the negative that a DUI has caused in my life,” Abraham said earlier this month to Radar Online. “I’m 22 and I want to make better choices and ensure I can recognize when I am putting myself in a bad situation next time.”
