Update: Farrah Abraham tells Fox in a statement: "I'm a great woman, mother and entrepreneur... I wanted my own personal video made and photos taken for myself, when I am older I will have my best year to look back on."
In case you haven't heard (or don't care), Farrah Abraham from "Teen Mom" and porn star James Deen have made a sex tape together.
Abraham was one of the original cast members of "Teen Mom" when the show debuted on MTV in December 2009. Abraham has one daughter, Sophia, who is now 4. Sophia's father, Derek Underwood, was killed in a car accident on December 28, 2008, two months before her birth.
Scratching your head at the name James Deen? You may recognize him as Lindsay Lohan's co-star from the drama-filled film"The Canyons."
Here is everything you need to know about the so-called sex tape:
Wait! It's Not Really a Sex Tape: Deen tells TMZ that an unidentified porn company contacted him over the weekend to shoot the film, and that Abraham -- the head schemer -- wanted to pass the porn off as a "sex tape." That plan fell apart when both parties were photographed leaving the Vivid Entertainment offices holding hands. So, that's how the sex tape just became a regular porno!
Farrah: What Tape? The MTV star inarticulately denied such a tape existed. "I don't ... exist ... anything about that," she told TMZ, mumbling something about legal threats. Abraham then posted this on Twitter:
I 'm going to ignore all the lies, all the hate, all the disrespectful people who want 2 take advantage of me, have fun making money off me

Well They Held Hands, So Are they Dating?!: Don't worry. Deen and Abraham just want to have sex on camera, there are no feelings involved. As Deen told E! News, they are "not dating at all."
"Holding hands was to build chemistry and help make her more comfortable," Deen continued. "I try to be nice to everyone and holding hands is the bees knees, so I figured it was a harmless way to help make her more comfortable before she had sex with a stranger. I always want everyone to leave the set smiling."
The jig is up! Abraham finally came around to acknowledging the tape. The 21-year-old is blaming Deen for her "sex tape leak" plan falling through since he couldn't keep his mouth shut about shooting the film. Oh, and Abraham also said she would have rather shot the tape with ex-boyfriend Derek Underwood.
