An adult entertainment worker who filed a $5 million lawsuit against Viacom and the production companies behind MTV’s “Teen Mom” along with one of the show’s executive producers has dropped the suit after reaching a settlement, E! News reports.

Farrah Abraham “filed papers on Tuesday stating that she and the parties had reached a settlement and that she voluntarily dismisses with prejudice all claims she had filed in her lawsuit,” the story reports. “The terms of the settlement were not made public. MTV and the other defendants have not commented.”

Abraham had sued for harassment and wrongful termination.

“Last October, the 26-year-old claimed she was cut from the remainder of ‘Teen Mom OG’ because of her work in adult entertainment,” E! News reports. “In February, she filed a $5 million lawsuit against MTV’s parent company Viacom, the show’s production companies and ‘Teen Mom’s’ executive producer Morgan J. Freeman, claiming she was ‘sex shamed’ for her porn career, and citing harassment, wrongful termination based upon gender discrimination and retaliation based upon gender discrimination.”

The report adds: “In her lawsuit, Abraham claimed that she the day before she was ‘fired’ from ‘Teen Mom,’ Freeman and his production crew ‘harassed, humiliated, discriminated against, disrespected, ridiculed, degraded, and sex shamed’ her for ‘her recent decision to pursue opportunities in the adult entertainment industry.'”
