It may have garnered her a lot of backlash from fans (and even Dr. Phil!), but "Teen Mom" star Farrah Abraham's entrance into the adult-film industry also scored her a big paycheck. In a statement to the press on Tuesday, the MTV reality personality revealed that she earned more than $1 million for her work in her upcoming movie, which was recently purchased by Vivid Entertainment.

"I am happy with the seven-figure settlement I have reached, with who I feel to be the best adult entertainment company in the industry, Vivid," Abraham said. "This is a risk for me to take, however I feel comfortable having given the rights to Vivid, a company I know can handle the media and press surrounding my sexuality."

In the statement, Abraham also discussed her plans for the future, but did not reveal if they include more adult movies.

"I am very pleased with the outcome and to have this opportunity to be an entrepreneur in another unexpected light in my life," she said. "I look forward to my future goals of completing my Masters degree, focusing on being a great mother for my daughter as well as many other culinary business endeavors in my future."

Abraham decided to sell the sex tape, which she told TODAY.com was meant to be her "own personal video," after its existence was revealed to the media.

"Having lost the ability to keep it a secret, Farrah decided to sell the tape to Vivid after reviewing several offers," the adult film company said in a press release on Monday.

The reality TV star/author/model/chef doesn't appear to be fazed by the negative comments that her latest business venture has garnered her. Instead, she is embracing those who support her decision to make a sex tape, even retweeting a few fans who said they planned to buy the movie when it's released next month. Abraham also aimed a tweet to those who had negative things to say about her latest venture.
