Farrah Abraham Says Daughter Gets Bullied For “Not Having a Father”
Farrah Abraham is getting real about raising her daughter Sophia without her father around.
The Teen Mom OG star’s baby daddy, Derek Underwood, died in a car accident on December 28, 2008.
Though she’s done a great job raising her little girl on her own, it seems her 8-year-old is suffering as a result.
In a beautiful tribute to Derek posted on Instagram, the reality star revealed Sophia gets bullied at school for not having a dad.
"This past year, Sophia was bullied for not having a father at her old public school,” she wrote on Thursday, December 28.
“I thought, 'Why would any child not understand that’s out of ones [sic] control and no one would ask for that?'” she continued.
Derek sadly died just one month before their daughter was born.
“In a world full of ignorance and wrongdoing, I’m happy to say my daughter knows her truth and has strength in that beyond the ignorance," she shared.
“Don’t ever manipulate or take advantage of a mother or child as they go through loss & challenges it’s disgustingly evil.”
She continued, “Thank you Daddy Derek for always watching over us and this year we’re at peace and happy with the loving support of family who live by this and we’re in loving spirits on our Hong Kong trip as Derek would love the heights & the water of Hong Kong island as he did of his rock queries.”
The 26-year-old opened up to In Touch last year about dealing with his tragic death.
"The 28th comes up every year for me — and I went through depression and a hard time,” she shared.
“And Sophia, as a child, has gone through her own [struggle, asking], ‘What happened to my dad?’ And having her own loss.”
Such tragic news. Our thoughts are with you, Farrah!
