Chelsea's Take On Things
Long time Teen Mom fans have watched Chelsea come a long way. Even though she had some hard times when she was with her ex, Adam Lind, she’s now found more stability in her new husband Cole DeBoer, with whom she is co-raising her daughter Aubree and new son Watson. The two of them seem like superhero parents compared to what she and some of the other cast members have gone through in the past, but that doesn’t mean that her past relationships won’t come back to bite her.
Her first baby daddy, Adam, wasn’t exactly an allstar Dad when they were together. But now, drug scandal after drug scandal has made it clear that the split was definitely a good choice for Chelsea. She’s finally opening up about his drug use.
Trouble With the Law
Adam Lind has had his fair share of run-ins with the law, and recent reports about it have revealed just how deep his drug use and abuse goes. Much of this information surfaced after his other ex, Taylor Halibur, took him to court in an attempt to regain more custody of the child they have together. She showed the court proof of him posting on Facebook about binge drinking, drug useage, and even jokes about rape.
But his run-ins with the law included more serious charges. In 2010, he was charged with one count of burglary after entering a home with “the intent to commit theft.” He also received charges of petty theft.
In 2011, he received charges of criminal trespassing and was sentenced to 80 days in Minnehaha County Jail. He was then arrested for three DUIs in the year 2012 alone, followed by domestic stalking charges in 2014. He was also arrested to in 2015 for failure to pay child support to Taylor Halibur. Needless to say, this has taken its toll on the DeBoer family.
In an effort to regain more custody of her child, Taylor Halibur also requested that the courts perform a formal drug test on Adam. According to Radar Online, she claimed that he “engaged in drug usage of either steroids or methamphetamines.”
In a result that must not have been surprising to Taylor, Adam failed the test. The court papers read, “Plaintiff failed his third drug test and he tested positive for amphetamines and methamphetamines.” What’s worse is that “the methamphetamine result in his system was substantial and this was just over 24 hours before he was to have the parties’ minor child.”
In this clip from Teen Mom, Chelsea opened up about Adam’s drug use to her father, Randy. She also shared how much it’s been affecting her daughter Aubree.
She tells her dad, “I just got an e-mail from my lawyer saying that Adam is going to readjust child support. And we have mediation this week.”
She confirms to her father that he’s taking her back to court, along with Taylor Halibur, to decrease his child support payments.
She says, “They want Taylor and I to be the same day back to back.” Then she adds, “Taylor just went to court. For their visitation, he has to take a drug test every time before he visits with Paislee, and if he fails a drug test, it automatically goes to supervised visits.”
