She's staying strong for her daughter!
From her very first appearance on Teen Mom 2, Chelsea Houska has been battling with her first baby daddy, Adam Lind. Fans struggled to watch as Chelsea defended Adam’s behavior even though her friends and family told her time and again to leave him. Chelsea was dedicated to having a family for Aubree and putting Adam first, but at some point, their relationship simply couldn’t be patched up.
After years of being together on and off, Chelsea and Adam finally parted ways. Although Chelsea went on to marry the ever-loved Cole DeBoer and start a family with him, Adam’s path wasn’t quite so smooth. In recent years, Adam has battled an addiction to drugs and has even been charged with domestic violence against his significant other.
Since then, Aubree has been allowed much less time with her father. Adam’s custody has been reduced time and again for Aubree’s safety as her father continues to use drugs. But recently, Adam has made it clear he doesn’t care what the law says — and he’s made a shocking custody violation. Now, Chelsea is speaking out about the incident.
As Adam Lind’s drug and domestic violence charges continued to rack up, his custody of his first daughter Aubree continue to be reduced over and over. But following his recent criminal charges, Aubree’s visitation with her father is lower than ever.
Adam was arrested on Nov. 3rd 2017, and a representative informed The Ashley’s Reality Roundup that Adam has “four counts against him, including attempting to cause bodily harm, recklessly attempting to cause bodily harm, attempting to cause imminent bodily harm, and one count of intentionally causing bodily harm.” Soon after, Adam’s ex girlfriend Stasia Huber took out a restraining order against him.
According to a report by Radar Online, the order read, in part,
“I have done too many well-checks on Adam than I can count [sic]. Times he has been curled up in a ball crying and trying to take his life. Times that got so bad he has expressed needing mandatory treatment or jail to stop himself. I have always been there for him in the past, he feels hopeless without me.”
Stasia accused Adam of “betrayal, emotional abuse, drugs and lying and cheating.” But soon, friends of Adam’s “expressed their concerns for his safety because of his depression and drug addiction.”
“On September 17th, 2017, after the texts and calls wouldn’t stop, I blocked him on everything and have not talked to him since,” Stasia’s report read. “It was after he sent me some depressing texts and we started to argue he threatened to hit me with his car if he ever saw me by his place,” she wrote in the order.
She also revealed details about the Adam’s abusive ways:
“While under the influence of drugs, alcohol and steroids, he fractured my forearm, locked me in the house saying I couldn’t leave, smashed my phone, and, once he realized what he had done, he broke down crying and took me to the ER. We broke up for a while after that.”
She added that on one instance, he “ripped the bedroom door off of its hinges and threw it across the room and then put a hole in the bedroom wall.” She alleges that, after drinking a six-pack of beer in just a few minutes, “[h]e threw a beer bottle and it smashed on the wall next to [her] and cut [her] leg and foot and hand.”
After Adam’s violent ways and drug addiction came to light, Chelsea revealed on Teen Mom 2 that Adam’s custody had been drastically reduced. Adam would only be allowed to see his daughter one time a month, and it would have to be at a visitation center. During the series premiere, Chelsea also revealed that she is still battling with Adam over massive amounts of child support.
“His drug use is out of control,” Chelsea spilled to her friend in the episode. “His depression is getting worse.” She added, “I’d like it to be where his visits need to be at a visitation center, but if she were to go visit his parents, he couldn’t be around. I’m going to talk to my lawyer and see what she thinks.” She also revealed that the entire situation is frightening for her. “It does scare me… He’s getting worse,” she said.
In another scene, she revealed to her father Randy that Adam “Will be willing to agree to the name change if [we] eliminate child support, adjust child support, or take into consideration [Cole’s] income. Obviously he’s fine with doing it, but he’s trying to [get something out of it.] Why would we eliminate child support to hyphenate her last name?” She revealed that Adam wanted to eliminate close to $10,000 of back child support he still owes her in addition to future child support.
