James Deen is finally telling his side of the Farrah Abraham sex tape story. Abraham’s infamous sex tape with James Deen, Backdoor Teen Mom, went viral after being released earlier this year. However, she denied knowing that her sex tape was actually going to be released to the public and claimed it would only be for personal use. She also accused Deen of harming her reputation.
Deen has remained largely mum on the scandal, but finally spoke out in the latest issue of Playboy. In the interview, he claimed that Abraham’s publicist initially tried to set up a fake romance between the pair before the sex tape hit. "They said, ‘We'll set it up so it looks like you guys are dating, and then TMZ will find out and it'll be all over the TV,'” said Deen. I said, ‘No, I don't want to do that. Hire somebody else.'"
He eventually agreed to the sex tape under the condition that he wouldn’t lie about his relationship with Abraham, which led to Deen getting confused about her getting so upset. “We shoot the movie and as we're leaving her hotel room, some paparazzo takes our picture. The next day I get a call from TMZ, asking if I was dating Farrah Abraham,” explained Deen. “I said no. 'Well, what were you doing at that hotel?' 'Shooting a porno.' And that's when the f**king drama train hit."
The porn star Deen also denied having a romantic or sexual relationship with Lohan, insisting that they were strictly colleagues while filming The Canyons. “They got shots of us coming out of a bar together, holding hands and getting into her car. TMZ was like, ‘What's going on? Are they an item?' We were playing a couple in a movie! “ said Deen. “We were hanging out before the movie and getting to know each other. When we left the bar together, she was drunk, so I drove her home because I was sober and she has a bad history with that. End of story."
Despite his womanizing ways, it does seem that Deen is (somewhat) officially off the market. Porn actress Stoya confirmed last July to Huffington Post that they are dating.
