Remember that Teen Mom 2 reunion special with Dr. Drew when Adam Lind accused Chelsea Houska of cheating on him with his best friend when she was pregnant with Aubree, and even sleeping with his brother, and it didn't look like she denied it? You know, the one in which he claims she ruined his life?
Apparently that's not exactly true. A source that knows the situation is setting the record straight on what exactly went down with Adam and Chelsea during their rocky relationship and if Chelsea cheated on Adam or not.
On the show, Adam said, "Chelsea, you did horrible things to me ... the things you've done is a reflection of what I've done to you. When she was pregnant with Aubree, she slept with one of my best friends that I went to high school with. While she was pregnant with my child. That has scarred me for life ... Chelsea, you've slept with my brother."
Chelsea's reply wasn't exactly a denial. The reality star said, "This is all before you ..." Before he WHAT, Chels?? Inquiring minds want to know. She did take to Twitter soon after the show aired to point out that not many people would look like angels if their sex lives were plastered all over national TV, but still, the question remains -- did Chelsea cheat on Adam?
The answer is probably a complicated no. The source told RadarOnline.com, "Chelsea didn’t cheat on Adam with his friend ... Adam left Chelsea, and she started dating a mutual friend who was a really nice guy. She wasn’t sleeping around or trying to hurt Adam like he claims. It’s pathetic he has to bring up things that happened five years ago to try to prove a point."
The person also pointed out that it's Adam and not Chelsea who has trouble owning up to his mistakes. He almost killed a couple senior citizens in a February car crash, but "even though the car accident was clearly his fault, he blames the elderly couple he hit ... he is the type of person who thinks everything he does is someone else’s fault."
So why won't Chelsea just come out and address it? She probably doesn't see the point. When you're with a blamer -- someone for whom nothing is ever their fault -- it's impossible to reason or argue with them. Literally impossible, like nailing Jello to the wall. No matter what Chelsea says or does, Adam will find some way to make it not his fault. Basically, she could walk on water and he'd say it was because she couldn't swim (to paraphrase Margaret Thatcher), so what's the point in arguing over the semantics of how close the friend she hooked up with was with Adam or exactly when it happened?
Chelsea is a smart girl to just let it go and move on with her life. The same source said, "Chelsea just avoids talking to Adam whenever possible" and that she "learned her lessons and grew up in order to be a good role model to Aubree. But Adam hasn't."
Sometimes it's all you can do.
Do you think Chelsea is wisely avoiding the issue, or should she clear it up herself?
