Farrah Abraham’s new partnership will allow you to own a piece of her — literally.
Over the years, we have learned that the Teen Mom star has made some surprising career decisions, but we never dreamed of the day when her DNA would be on sale. However, according to TMZ, Abraham has now partnered with Celebrity Gene, a company that liquefies the DNA of celebrities and puts it in a vial so that you can wear it around your neck.
The DNA is said to usually be extracted from the hair, and the vials sell for $99. But there is something really good about this venture, because 50 percent of the profits go to the charity of the celebrity’s choice, and in this case, it will be for Operation Underground Railroad, which helps rescue children from slavery.
So, what does Abraham get from this partnership? Apparently, she’s getting a 10 percent cut from sales, plus around $30,000 that she got up front for the DNA sample.
Abraham is not the first celeb to sell her DNA, though, as TMZ reports she joins the ranks of talented musicians Michael Jackson and Elvis, and Italian-American gangster Al Capone and British royal Princess Diana.
