Teen Mom Chelsea Houska's biggest scandals from blackfishing accusations to a $3M lawsuit with her ex-business partner

December 19, 2021

TEEN Mom 2 alum Chelsea Houska always seems to be battling some form of backlash.

The former MTV star star has found herself under attack for everything from her personal appearance to her business attempts involving clothing lines and home decor.

And then there are the more serious accusations of blackfishing and withholding money from partners.

More than a decade ago, fans were first introduced to Chelsea on MTV's 16 & Pregnant in 2009 and were able to follow her through her 10 seasons.

According to her Instagram profile, Chelsea is the co-founder of Aubree Says, a home decor company.

She also is a co-owner of Belle & Rae Co., which offers "Next level photos with our Lightroom presets," according to their bio.

In September of 2009, Chelsea gave birth to her first daughter, Aubree Lind-DeBoer.

She was born five weeks early while Chelsea was a senior in high school, and still dating her ex-boyfriend, Adam Lind.

The couple share an additional two children together, Layne and Walker, and take care of many animals together on their farm, including cows, goats, and pigs.

If anything, Chelsea has proved she's a fighter. Take a look through some of her biggest scandals.


In December, Chelsea, 30, posted a picture of herself alongside her daughters, and fans were quick to notice that her skin appeared to be significantly more tan than the girls.

They later accused her of blackfishing on Reddit, which is known as when someone uses things such as hairstyles and makeup to appear darker than they are.

The original Redditt poster wrote: "Chelsea's girls rocking their natural (albeit insta filtered) colour. Meanwhile their Mam is 1,000 shades of mahogany."

Anothe user wrote: "It's weird how people are coming to her defense about her way too dark makeup color/skin color. I guess it rubs me wrong when white girls try so hard to look brown."

Chelsea has yet to address the accusations.


In April, 2020, Chelsea and her husband, Cole, were sued for $3 million after they allegedly “withheld money” made from social media promotions.

In court papers obtained by The Sun, Chelsea, Cole, her company C&A Enterprises and The William Gerard Group were sued for breach of contract by consulting company Envy.

Envy claimed in the lawsuit that the company entered into a contract with The William Gerard Group in 2015 to provide consulting services to Chelsea and Cole, who entered a contract in 2016, in exchange for a portion of revenue made from deals. 

Envy worked as a “consultant to negotiate appearance, endorsement, licensing, royalty and television agreements and related contracts” from 2015 through 2019. 

The court papers claim Chelsea and Cole “failed to pay any of the contractually required fees.”


In May, 2021, fans slammed Chelsea for keeping a “bowl of antlers” on the floor in her house, despite having four kids running around.

The former reality star and her family had recently moved into a new South Dakota farmhouse, and many of her followers have blasted it as “ugly.”

Teen Mom 2 fans on Reddit labeled the decoration a “safety hazard” and slammed Chelsea for including it in her new farmhouse.

One user wrote: “I just personally wouldn’t have it out with young kids, and it’s ugly.”

A second explained: “It's not a big deal until a toddler trips and falls face first into a bowl of antlers. That is a sentence I never thought I'd say or type.”

Another, referencing Chelsea’s youngest child Walker, noted: “This is dangerous especially with a little little one who will be moving around and doesn’t understand not to touch that.”


The ex TV star has been repeatedly slammed over the years for having had "too much Botox" and "heavy fake lashes" as her fanbase has begged her to attempt to go natural. 

One fan said: "God! Her eyelashes are the wrong shape for her eyes! It drives me crazy every time I see it."

Another added: "Okay! Why are her eyes droopy? And why does she have wrinkles on her nose? She’s not even 30."

A third mentioned: "Please quit with your face girl. You're going to ruin yourself."

One critic added: "I really want those heavy fake lashes to go out of style. I'm sick of everyone having droopy lids."

A commentator chimed in: "I hate she messed with her face… she was so naturally pretty!"


In September, fans complained that Chelsea was selling "ratty" sweatshirts with holes in them from her upcoming clothing line.

That follows last year, when a pregnant Chelsea was taken to school for promoting "cheap quality clothing."

The former TV personality took to her Instagram Stories to show off various outfits from her collection on the Laurie Bellas line.

However, fans noticed something while Chelsea posed in the $42 leopard print sherpa jacket – there was a hole in the pricey jacket.

The original Reddit user wrote: "Another try on haul by Chelsea… more overly priced clothing made cheap."

Others chimed in as well as one said: "Why is there a hole? It looks cozy to sit in at home if there were no holes in it." 


But it's not just her wardrobe choices getting negative attention.

Fans called out a "ridiculously overpriced" cattle skull for $79 in her home decor line.

Alongside a photo of the mom of four holding the skull, a description reads: "It’s official: I’m OBSESSED with my new patterned bull head. It’s the perfect hanging or tabletop decoration to make your space feel rustic, artsy, and unique.

"Hang it on your family room wall or place it on your office bookshelf. It's anywhere you want to bring those farmhouse chic vibes that I’m obsessed with. I’m hoping it will share a little piece of my South Dakota farm home energy with yours."

Fans were quick to take to Reddit to react, as one person harshly wrote: "Aubeee says this is the most ridiculous overpriced garbage EVER!!!!"

Another said: "I live in the desert, we have cattle skulls everywhere. I'll bedazzle one for $10, no need to spend $79.

"Holy hell that's ridiculous she thinks people will pay this."
