Teen Mom 2 star Adam Lind has been accused of abusing meth, coke and steroids … but his drug use isn’t Taylor Halbur’s only complaint.
Nor is not paying child support, amazingly, despite his history of not doing that either. No, when it comes to parenting, he falls asleep on the job.
In court papers, Halbur – Lind’s second baby mama, following his romance with Teen Mom 2’s Chelsea Houska – accuses him of neglect.
Not his usual I’m-not-paying-you-money neglect … but physical neglect of their three-year-old daughter, Paislee, while he has custody.
Documents obtained from the Circuit Court of Minnehaha allege that Halbur found the little girl unattended at the home of this derelict.
“I approached the house and began knocking on the garage,” Halbur says. “There was no response, so I proceeded to the front door.”
“I did not get a response from the door either,” she said, and given that we’re talking about Adam Lind, she began to grow concerned.
“Ultimately, I just opened the door and went in.”
Halbur claims she found their daughter – this was six months ago – sitting on the couch. By herself. Unsupervised, unattended and unwatched.
“I finally saw Adam and he advised me he had just woken up from a nap … I understand he was sleeping in his bedroom away from Paislee.”
“I did not see any other adult around at the time.”
Lind, in her estimation (and likely many others’) is “unable to be a responsible adult and rise to a parent that can put Paislee’s interest first.”
Halbur believes the environment is “not conductive to a child” and that Paislee’s daycare provider can attest to that. How so?
After the little one spends the weekend with Chelsea Houska’s baby daddy, she is significantly more “mean” to the other kids, apparently.
She also started biting herself on the arm at naptime.
“When I get Paislee after she has been with Adam, she is exhausted,” she claimed, making the point that Lind throws her off kilter.
“Generally she wakes up at 6:30a.m. when she is with us.”
“On Monday morning, she did not wake up until 8:30 a.m. and by 5:45 p.m. she was ready to go back to sleep.”
“This is common after a weekend with Adam.”
Halbur asked the court to change his custody of Paislee to supervised visitation, as in he can only see his daughter while being monitored.
In Lind’s response, he accuses her of entering his residence without invitation, in violation of the South Dakota Parenting Guidelines.
As for the whole nap incident?
“I did take a nap that day and Paislee took a nap with me and fell asleep on my chest,” he wrote in his response, a very different claim.
“Taylor is not being truthful in her affidavit.”
He also scoffs at the notion of Paislee’s daycare meanness and disagreed that the environment he provides isn’t conductive to child care.
Lind claims that at daycare, any number of things could be going on that would explain that behavior, not just him sucking at parenting.
Paislee, he suggests, “could be acting out because she misses [Lind] and is not happy that she cannot be around [him] more.”
“She could be seeking attention that she does not get when she is with others after she has been with me,” he added.
“She is not exposed to violence with me.”
Not a likely story if you ask us, personally.
That being said, no modification in custody has been made as of press time, so Halbur may be reaching a bit as well with her claims.
Of course, that could change in a hurry.
If Lind boasts about being a hard ass druggie on social media, he may lose custody faster than you can say methamphetamine.
