Teen Mom OG star Farrah Abraham claimed during a recent episode of her podcast that an Uber driver tried to assault her during an altercation on Long Island in January 2015.

“My non-boyfriend threw him in the window and almost broke his car window,” she said of her on-again, off-again boyfriend Simon Saran during her Farrah & Friends podcast on Thursday, March 3. “The Persian dude ran after me. The cops were like, ‘You’re harassing her,’ and I was like, ‘See, I told you!’ and then I went to bed.”

Abraham tells Us Weekly exclusively that the incident took place when she was on her way from Jericho Gardens to a friend's house in the Hamptons at 2:30 a.m. "It was very scary and I was very upset," she said, adding that police were called. 

"Simon had to physically fight with him to protect me," she added.

“[The driver] kept trying to get money, saying he would go to the press and sue me since I shut my account down and wouldn’t pay him for a ride,” Abraham said of what happened after the altercation. “Obviously, I told him to stop lying.”

The Uber driver filed a complaint, although the reality star did not.

“We have no record of a complaint from a rider on this trip,” Uber said in a statement to Us Weekly. “We have received a complaint from the driver. We review all feedback and safety allegations are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly.”
