Farah Abraham Defends Taking Sophia to a Concert: ‘For the Record, I Wasn’t Clubbing With Her’
On July 18, Abraham shared photos and videos of herself and her 13-year-old daughter Sophia at a concert in a club. Fans were upset to see the young girl in that setting and blasted Abraham for bringing her.
“Shouldn’t she be doing this with her friends?” wrote one follower. Another added, “That’s mother of the year right there.”
Other fans called it “ridiculous” and “insanity” and one wrote, “What the actual f***?”
Now, Abraham is firing back at the critics.
On July 21, Abraham spoke to TMZ.
“I guess, like, there was some disturbance of me going to a concert with my daughter,” she told the outlet. “For the record, I wasn’t clubbing with her. It was an all-ages concert and I think, who better than to go with her child to a concert than a parent? Especially when there was Travis Scott concerts with like kids dying. And I think I am just taking it upon myself, as I have a teenager now to just show her, like, ok maybe stay out of the mosh pits, stay away from some danger zones when you are at concerts.”
Abraham went on to add, “So that’s what Summer is for, other than Summer camps. So I am kind of going through that with my 13-year-old. Sophia is doing great.”
She also praised the 12-step program she is a part of and re-iterated that there was no alcohol involved in the outing.
“I was there with all the cool moms and making sure the kids were safe. We had a really good time,” she told the outlet. “There was like no drinking, there’s just water and it was just such a fun time.”
The concert took place at The Empire Control Room in Texas.
