Farrah Abraham’s Father Michael Denies He Ever Tried To Fight ‘Teen Mom OG’ Star Tyler Baltierra (Exclusive!)

“I don’t want to box!” 

Farrah Abraham‘s father, Michael is fightin’ mad over a story that Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell told during a recent appearance on Kail Lowry‘s Coffee Convos podcast!

Last week, the ‘Teen Mom OG’ couple regaled their fans with a story about Michael confronting Tyler at a ‘Teen Mom’ Reunion taping over something Tyler said onstage about Michael’s parenting. Ty and Cate claimed that the situation escalated to the point where Michael had to be stopped by the show’s security team, after going nose-to-nose with Tyler.

“Michael is actually a very interesting character,” Tyler said on the podcast. “I never actually told anybody this but he physically got in my face and wanted to fight me about two reunions ago!”

However, Michael claims that Tyler and Catelynn made up the story. In an emailed statement sent to The Ashley after she posted the original story, Michael denied Tyler and Catelynn’s story.

“The reason why Tyler ‘never actually told anyone’ is because it NEVER HAPPENED,” Michael wrote in his statement. “Everyone knows that if that would have happened the production company and MTV would have aired it as a public relations stunt. The world knows that MTV films everything and everybody at all reunion shows.”

Michael also denied that he ever had to be stopped by MTV’s security while trying to fight Tyler, as Catelynn stated on the podcast.

“I have NEVER been pushed down on a couch by security at any reunion show filming,” Michael wrote. “The only time reunion security had to do anything with me physically was when they were protecting me during the time that Matt Baier attacked and assaulted me three reunion ago.


“It’s a shame that Tyler and Cate have to make up stories like this,” Michael’s statement continued. “The last time I was face-to-face with them I shook his hand and hugged her to mend our relationship after the strain that Matt’s assault on me caused between everyone on the show.  It’s even more troubling that they would say something like this after how kind [my fiance] Amy and I were to Tyler’s father Butch at the “That’s a Wrap” [‘Teen Mom’ Special] filming last October in LA. We were the first people to come up and shake his hand and say hello! I’ve also gone to the extent of complimenting him (Tyler) as being an excellent father this last year repeatedly on social media as he cared for Nova during the time Cate was in rehab.”

Michael seemed particularly bothered by the statement Tyler made stating that Farrah and her family were “a whole different breed.”

“Tyler and Cate’s dad Dave are just like me– we will do anything to love, care and protect our daughters,” Michael said. “It’s so sad that even after we (Farrah and her family) have moved on and have wished everyone the very best, the hate from others continues and there is no valid reason for it. We are extremely happy and living our lives in a healthy and positive way, why can’t everyone else do the same?”

No other cast members (on either side) have spoken out about the alleged Michael-trying-to-box-Tyler incident. The incident was not filmed and did not air, therefore The Ashley does not know if it occurred (as Tyler and Catelynn said) or did not occur (as Michael is stating).

  1. I don’t believe Michael. He’s as dishonest as his wretched daughter, and he’s just using this for publicity now that the show/gravy train is over. Tyler was right–that family is trash.

  2. I am so glad that MTV got rid of the pxrn star and her f’d up family!!! With the exception of the good doctor I think the whole family need their heads examined..including Michael’s gf.

  3. I don’t think Michael has enough credibility to be claiming other people make up stories.
    His family is the one that has the biggest record of delusional lies. But I guess Butch should feel honoured about Michael shaking his hand.

    Not that I think Tyler wouldn’t lie. He loves to have his imput in everything that happens and loves being in the spotlight no matter how. Whatever (Michael).

  4. Michael seems as delusional and narcissistic as Farrah with his very random and strange beliefs of how other people are required to react. So you hugged Catelynn and Tyler after your daughter was fired? And this means that they’re not allowed to have negative feelings or thoughts about you? And it also means they’re not allowed to bring up past events? And your fiancée was the first person to say hi to Butch at an event? And you’ve tweeted that Tyler is a good dad? These are all such random, minor details that Michael wants us to believe are hugely magnanimous life-changing actions on his part. I bet that catelyn found your hug creepy, unwanted, and awkward. And I bet that Tyler found your hand shaking and compliments laughable and self-important on your end. Just bc you think someone should be grateful for your actions doesn’t mean that they have to be grateful for your actions. Same thing with saying hi to Butch. That minor kindness does not absolve you of every horrific thing you’ve said and done in the past. Just because you wanted to leave the show “on good terms” with everyone doesn’t mean they have to abide by that. It’s like how if you act like a shitty person for 9 years and then offer a vague “sorry if you were offended,” apology, it doesn’t mean anyone has to accept your apology, believe you, forgive you, forget the things you’ve done, and promise to pretend like nothing has happened. Michael and Farrah both have these crazy egocentric, narcissistic ways of looking at the world where they only focus on how they feel currently. If they’re currently feeling “nice” then they assume everyone around them needs to also feel and act “nice.” They believe that if they’ve decided something isn’t a big deal and they want to move on from it, then everyone else is required to think it’s not a big deal and move on from it. They minimize any of their negative behaviors and magnify the importance of any decent human-like behaviors like saying hi or shaking hands. They believe that the last thing they said, did, or felt is the most important thing in the world to themselves and everyone else and that it erases anything they said, did, or felt in the past. I have a mother like this. And I see her convoluted behaviors and ways of thinking in Michael and Farrah.

  5. Does anyone else read Michael in Farrah’s annoying voice? Or is it just me. Micheal needs to go away just like his daughter did, why do you care anyways you and your daughter are no longer relevant to TM.

  6. He acts like Butch s/b doing the happy dance because he (Michael) shook his hand, and said hello. Go away Michael

  7. Why doesn’t this old doorMat, stop bumpin his gums, mykol go get a life you attention seeking old fart.

    He is as annoying as his Slut of a daughter.

  8. Not buying it Michael. If Tyler was going to make up a story, it would’ve been something juicier than that. It wasn’t some big crazy story, just a little anecdote. Also, grow up. A man your age being so obsessed with social media and with the drama of a bunch of 20-somethings is just embarrassing.

  9. Grow up Michael, you SAP!! Why are you bothering to write into the Ashley about such a meaningless aligation! Attention seeking, disgusting, classless, pathetic people, the whole family, included the nine year old kid all of you destroyed!!!
    You want to open your mouth so bad, tell your daughter the truth of how degrading her sex money is, instead of lying and calling it standing up for women.. what women? Of course you are scared to death of her so you go along with everything like the sap that you are !

  10. CPS needs to take farrah’s kid. She has no formal education,no friends, and is learning all negative farrah delusional rude beliefs. Serious that’s a problem. The kid needs to a real parent to raise her. Scary.

    1. I really think the reason she started “homeschooling” in the first place is because the school was expressing concern about Sophia’s stunted development, lack of vocabulary and proper speech, lack of social skills, lack of coping mechanisms, and plethora of other odd behaviors. I think they suggested that she have some testing done, be put in a special class, be held back a year, or be referred to a child psychologist for evaluations. Farrah, being the asshole mother that she is, got all huffy and puffy about it, accused the school of “hate crimes,” screamed about not associating with “negative people,” and pulled Sophia out of school. I think this is also exactly why she tried to fire the set teacher. The set teacher probably brought up the same concerns about Sophia’s behavior, attitude, inability to socialize normally, learning problems, speech, stunted development, and psychological issues, and probably also suggested some testing, specialists, or a psych evaluation. I think Farrah sees Sophia as a miniature version of herself and takes any well-intentioned concern as a personal attack—bc if Sophia has issues and Sophia is just a smaller Farrah, then that means Farrah has issues. I imagine she’s had teachers, nannies, tutors, and coaches all expressing concern for Sophia for many years, and that’s why she keeps trying to isolate Sophia from other children and adults, and keeps pushing her into things like modeling, endorsing crap on instagram, and being a social media figure—all activities in which Sophia is only seen as a body and not a real child, and in which she doesn’t need to think, speak, learn, practice, or perfect anything.

  11. Farrah almost had it right for Easter I was Impressed with how she dressed herself and her daughter like a lady. Then she bring her friend whom I’m sure works with her all she had to do was put a pin in her dress wear a camolsol
    many things you can do so the Easter party doesn’t see all your breast.

  14. I believe Tyler and Matt could of and should of kicked your ass.
    Your DAUGHTER was so stuck up and rude she couldn’t be belittled to meet Butch, in my book That makes her a no good scum sucking- trash Whore who thinks she better then every one else but has Venereal diseases. And will be dragging your granddaughter down with her because you don’t have two balls God gave you to stand up to.your daughter when she is wrong.

  15. Definitely seeing where Farrah got a lot of her delusions of grandeur and general nutbaggery from!

  16. I hate to admit it, but Michael does make some good points. Seems like it would have been aired, leaked, etc., by now. On the other hand, Michael’s relationship with his daughter creeps me out.

    1. I agree. MTV films EVERYTHINGS. They would have shown that. At the very least, it would have been brought up sometime before now… no way these two could wait two years to talk about it.

      1. Not necessarily. They’ve swept plenty of things under the rugs, namely David going psycho as the reunion and pulling a knife out. MTV never commented on it or showed any clips. They also hid Kail and Briana’s fight.

  17. Looks like Michael had a little help wit his response. The “POSITIVE” HEALTHY, BLAH, BLAH… Sounds like Farrah helped him write it. She’s mentally ill, seriously, and he still kisses her sick arse. Sad actually.

  18. Hmmm same wording wording Farrah use’s a lot about living a healthy and normal life in every way

  19. No MTV wouldn’t have necessarily aired it. They didn’t air the Kail/Leah/Briana fight or David being a huge stabby creep. Which would have been loads more entertaining than emasculated David throwing up his chicken stumps.

  20. I believe Tyler. Typical Abraham behavior, deflect past behavior by stating how wonderful you are now.

  21. Michael needs to worry about what his granddaughter is posting on social media & how it appears she has been exposed to Farrahs sexual activity going by the last vid Sophia posted.

      1. Sophia posted a video where she is laying down,gazing into the camera & doing stuff with her tongue which you would expect to see in an adult porn movie. Where would a 9 year old kid learn that??

        1. I seriously worry about that kid. Farrah clearly exposes her to far too much while keeping her isolated and doesn’t have a healthy sense of boundaries. Sophia displays a lot of disturbing behavior and her family doesn’t seem to notice or care.

  22. Sorry, Michael. I’ll believe Cate and Ty over you any day. A man that defends his daughter’s crazy behavior on a regular basis shows me that his is just as insane as she is. Besides, I remember Cate’s dad saying something on social media when this occurred a few years back. He didn’t go into specifics about what happened but he did say something that suggested you got aggressive with Cate and Ty.
