Uber Rep: Farrah Abraham Never Reported Alleged Attempted Rape By Driver
Farrah Abraham claims a Long Island Uber driver attempted to rape her during a January 2015 ride, but a representative for the car service says the company has “no record” of the “Teen Mom” star ever “reporting any incident.”
On Thursday’s episode of her podcast “Farrah and Friends,” Abraham recounted an alleged encounter with an Uber driver, who she claimed “almost raped” her. The reality star then said that her semi-boyfriend Simon Saran “threw him in the window and almost broke his car window.” She went on to allege that the police were called, but the driver still “ran after” her once they arrived. “The cops were like, ‘You’re harassing her’ and I was like, ‘See I told you!’ and then I went to bed,” the reality star added.
But Uber spokesman Matt Wing released a statement on Friday, saying, “We have no record of Ms. Abraham ever reporting any incident like this. Her rider account was banned because an Uber driver-partner reported that a friend traveling with Ms. Abraham dumped their alcoholic drink on the front seat of the partner’s car.”
The company’s rep further said Abraham’s Uber driver actually made a report complaining about the reality star being drunk and hostile, and she was subsequently banned from using the ride-sharing app. Abraham has yet to respond to Uber’s denial of her story.
