Adam Lind is … well, he's not a good person, for a whole lot of reasons.
He has several problems, and don't worry, we'll do a quick review on them, but as a result of all of these issues, he recently gave up his rights to his youngest child.
It's sad in many, many ways.
But what about Aubree?
2. Well …
3. So Awful
4. Hold Up
5. Bad Boy
6. Why Though?
Here’s something you don’t hear rappers say a lot lately … CUT THE NFL A BREAK!!! RZA — the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan — says he doesn’t think the NFL deserves all the crap it’s been getting for booking Maroon 5 for the Super Bowl halftime…
OK, so Adam Lind is a truly awful person with zero redeeming qualities.
We all know this, and we’ve known it for a very, very long time.
It would take forever to list all the ways he is the worst, but let’s at least go through a rundown of his greatest hits, all right?
The world was unfortuantely introduced to him because he impregnated Chelsea Houska, who had her own episode of 16 and Pregnant and then went on to be one of the mothers featured in Teen Mom 2.
They shared an adorable daughter, Aubree, but it was clear from the beginning that he was not exactly the world’s best dad.
Or a dad at all, really.
He wasn’t around too much after Aubree was born, or ever, as far as we saw.
He and Chelsea broke up, then got back together, and so on and so forth.
He was really cruel to her and obviously wasn’t too interested in their kid, but still, she kept taking him back pretty much until she met Cole DeBoer, an actual good person and now, her husband.
At some point in that mess, he also began seeing Taylor Halbur, and he had a baby with her, too — a precious little girl they named Paislee.
Adam wasn’t around for her, either, and it’s since become clear why.
As it turns out, he has a pretty big problem with addiction and domestic violence.
He’s been arrested plenty of times for DUIs and driving without a license, that sort of thing, but last year, he failed a court-ordered drug test.
Because of meth.
Yep, Adam was doing lots and lots of meth, and although he’s not on Teen Mom 2 anymore and hasn’t been for a while, we really don’t have any reason to believe he ever stopped.
He was also arrested more than once last year on domestic violence charges — his most recent ex, Stasia Huber stated in court documents that he broke her arm when he was high, then locked her in the house and destroyed her phone.
In other court documents for another case, Taylor claimed that he once killed two of her puppies, and that on another ocasion, he knocked her to the ground when she was holding Paislee.
So meth, breaking girlfriend’s arms, killing girlfriend’s puppies … how can it get any worse?
Oh, just you wait!
In one of Adam’s earliest appearances on MTV, he sent a text to Chelsea, who had just given birth to Aubree, to call her a “fat stretch mark bitch.”
He also wrote “tell me where and when to sign the rights over for that mistake,” and by “that mistake,” he meant their baby.
Now, all these years later, he actually did sign his rights over.
Not for Aubree, but for his other daughter, Paislee.
Yesterday, Taylor took Adam to court to get things done, as reported by The Ashley’s Reality Roundup.
It was hardly the first time Taylor took Adam to court — they’ve been many times to deal with custody arrangements, child support, visitation — but it was the last.
According to the report, Adam was asked several questions by the judge before everything was made official, and he was required to state that he knew his decision was permanent, and that from here on out, he’d have no rights to Paislee.
He did, and just like that, he signed away his rights to his youngest child.
As a bit of a happy ending to all of this, South Dakota state law requires that when parental rights are terminated, the rights get transferred to someone else, or to some authorized agency.
That was no big deal though, because Taylor’s husband adopted Paislee!
He’s been in Paislee’s life for a long time, and it seems like he’s been her dad during all that time anyway, it’s just official now.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t affect anything with Aubree.
If Chelsea wants Adam to terminate his parental rights to her, too, then she’ll have to get her own court date.
But in the past, she’s often followed Taylor’s lead — Taylor got a visitation center involved for Adam long before Chelsea did, for example — and they do speak with each other.
We have a feeling that if she wanted to do this, too, then Cole would happily adopt Aubree.
Honestly, it’s probably only a matter of time until that happens.
Can Adam get any lower than this?
Terry Crews is finally accepting the apology he got from Adam Venit now that the WME agent has officially retired. Terry just posted a letter he received in March and, in it, Venit asks for forgiveness for the sexual assault Terry says…
During Monday night’s Teen Mom 2 reunion show, Chelsea Houska chatted with host Dr. Drew Pinksy via Skype.
Not surprisingly, the conversation eventually turned to the topic of Houska’s fractured relationship with Adam Lind.
Equally unsurprising is the fact that Chelsea is no big fan of her deadbeat baby daddy.
Earlier this year, Chelsea obtained sole custody of her daughter by Lind after years of fretting over her 8-year-old Aubree’s safety.
It wasn’t terribly difficult for her to convince the judge, of course.
After all, Lind has been arrested more times than we can count, and he has a long history of unprovoked violence and other erratic behaviors.
Of course, Chelsea didn’t enter into the matter lightly.
It’s clear she desperately wanted Aubree to have a relationship with her father and reluctantly arrived at the conclusion that it’s just not possible.
Until he gets sober and dramatically changes his ways, Lind will continue to be a danger to himself and others.
And it seems he has no intention of altering his current course.
Fortunately, there’s a silver lining in Aubree’s life.
Chelsea married Cole DeBoer in 2016, and he’s proven to be the ideal father figure for her eldest child.
“I’m grateful that [Aubree] has someone like Cole [DeBoer]. You know, who has gone above and beyond,” Chelsea told Pinksy.
“But there’s no doubt that this has to hurt her, will hurt her, deep down someday.”
Asked by Dr. Drew if Lind is still doing drugs, Chelsea had this to say:
“The one thing that I have heard is that he will be like in his house for weeks at a time, just not even doing anything. So you have to question what’s going on there.”
Earlier this year, Chelsea opened up about a topic that’s rarely discussed by the ladies of the Teen Mom franchise — namely, how her kids might feel when they one day watch the show that made their mother famous.
“It’s inevitable that they’re going to see [the show] someday,” she told E! News.
“I think Watson is going to be fine because he’s seeing fun, family times.
“I think Aubree is going to be a little more difficult because she’s going to see the relationship with her dad and she’s going to have a lot of questions.”
“We’ve always been open with each other.
“She is open with me and can talk to me so I just want to keep it that way so for when they do watch it, she feels comfortable and won’t have any surprises.”
These days, Chelsea is pregnant with her third child, and while she’s likely well aware that the years to come won’t be easy for her eldest child, she also seems confident in her belief that Aubree has the best possible support system.
