TEEN Mom 2 star Chelsea Houska’s daughter Aubree, 11, is still close to her dad Adam Lind’s youngest child Paislee, 7, after he gave up parental rights to her, his ex-girlfriend Taylor Halbur exclusively revealed to The Sun.
Chelsea, 29, and Taylor, 31, made efforts on Teen Mom 2 for their daughters to spend time together during their nasty custody war with Adam, 31.
In 2018, the troubled dad shockingly signed away his parental rights of Paislee, then 5.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Taylor revealed she and Chelsea continue to get the sisters together even after Adam gave up his rights.
Taylor said: “With Covid and everything, it threw a wrench in everybody’s schedules. I know Chelsea and I, especially during winter time and the school time, our schedules are so busy. And then with Covid on top of it, we aren’t able to get them together as often as we would like at this point.
“Eventually we’ll get back to that place where we’ll be able to get the girls together at the park or movies. Once all the Covid stuff dies down I think it’ll be a lot easier.”
Taylor added that Paislee “loves Aubree so much.”
On an episode of Teen Mom 2, Chelsea and Taylor took Aubree and Paislee bowling.
Adam was also filmed parenting both Aubree and Paislee, as he had custody of his daughters every other weekend, though his time with his oldest daughter was to be supervised.
In October, Chelsea, who also shares children Watson, 3, and Layne, 2, with her husband Cole DeBoer, announced she is leaving the MTV series after 10 years. She is currently pregnant with a baby girl.
Taylor said of Chelsea’s decision to leave the show: “She’s been on it long enough where she knows what she wants. She’s been doing it for so long, for her to leave I think that takes a lot of courage.
“I think if that’s what they want to do that’s what they want to do and I think it’s great.”
As for Taylor, she married her husband Joe Leonard in 2017.
She is stepmother to his three children, as he adopted Paislee after Adam signed over his rights.
Taylor, who works as a bartender in Sioux Falls, said of their life today: “Things are good. Just working and being a mom pretty much. Married life has been great. I couldn’t imagine my life without him. He’s wonderful. He’s great with Paislee.
“Paislee is 7. She’s great too. She loves school. She’s starting to talk about her best friends from school and things like that. I live a simple, boring life!”
Adam has been out of the spotlight ever since he quit Teen Mom 2 in 2017.
Adam currently has supervised visitation with Aubree at a center, though he failed to show up to the scheduled meetings on Teen Mom 2.
He is allowed to get lunch with Aubree at her school with his mother on Wednesdays, which he has attended.
Aubree stays with Adam’s mother one weekend of the month, though he is not allowed to be at the home when his daughter is present.
On the show, Chelsea suggested her husband Cole DeBoer should adopt Aubree.
When Chelsea explained the situation to Aubree off camera, she said how she did not want her father to give up his rights.
Adam has a long rap sheet and has been in and out of jail over the years.
Adam was arrested in September on a warrant for non-support of a minor child for Aubree.
Adam had expired license plates and was pulled over before the arrest on August 20.
Other recent arrests include a May 2018 bust for violation of stalking protection order.
The case was dismissed.
He was also arrested for domestic abuse in November 2017.
The domestic abuse simple assault attempt to cause bodily injury, recklessly causing bodily injury, attempt to put another in fear of bodily harm and intentionally cause bodily injury charges were all dismissed.
He was sentenced to 30 days in jail with 30 days suspended for the two counts of failure to appear in court after he pleaded guilty.
He was ordered to refrain from committing similar offenses until August 30, 2019, which he complied with.
