When asked by the Daily Mail directly if Deen raped her, she responded, “From my intensive therapy, yes. Under my doctor and everything that I’ve been through, that is what has gone on.”
She went on to describe how the couple had a casual dating relationship, and that Abraham’s capacity for making good decisions was clouded by Deen’s lies and manipulations.
“Deen said at that time he didn’t drink or do drugs. But clearly I was drugged, and my legal staff and my therapist know that,” she said.
“I don’t know if he just drugged women to take advantage of them or what was going on. I experienced extreme anger problems and abusive behavior from Deen. He treated me like he wanted to break me and ruin my career as a reality star-celebrity, as many witnessed. I no longer wanted to be around him.”
The tape, which Abraham has always maintained was meant to be a personal performance for their eyes only, wound up being leaked before she sold it to Vivid Entertainment to take control of the situation — and she said Deen is the one to blame.
“I was lied to by him and he doesn’t give a shit about anyone but himself,” she said.
“It was a set-up against me by James Deen… I got dropped from MTV’s Teen Mom back when all this happened, a show I created and starred in. He conspired what he did with me, this is the truth. The rape victims coming forward are telling the truth as well. They would have no reason to be lying or defamatory in what they’re saying.
“I’m thankful that I have separated myself and gotten beyond how horrible, evil, abusive and a rapist James Deen is.
“I feel every time someone calls me a porn star, it’s like them, to me, seeming like a rapist and a derogatory, abusive womanizing manipulator like James Deen,” she continued. “I’m saying that because that’s how it made me feel — because I also have amazing friends who are porn stars and I’m proud of them.
“I’ve had so much intensive therapy since, some seen on VH1’s Couples Therapy. I’ve learned and I need to admit [what happened] — this was conspired, this was a form of rape.
I was drugged and manipulated. He’s a disgusting person.”
Thankfully, Abraham says she is on the road to an emotional recovery.
“I’m very thankful, I’ve been recovering and very accepting of my therapy,” she said. “That’s something very big for me because normally, I don’t admit those things.”
