Adam Lind reveals how much he was paid for Teen Mom 2


Adam Lind, who shares daughter Aubree with Teen Mom 2 star Chelsea Houska, continued to accuse MTV of pushing a false narrative that he’s not a good dad in a recent post via social media. While doing so, he defended his reasons for leaving the show while revealing the substantial amount of money he walked away from by making that decision.

Adam shared a pic of himself and his daughters walking his dogs and someone commented, “I sincerely hope that MTV shows moments like this instead of bashing you and bad mouthing you all the time. I’ve seen so many precious pictures with you and your girls on here and you never get the credit you deserve. You are a wonderful father and those girls love you to pieces.”

When a lil girl wants to paint your nails… you better sit your butt down and let her ?❤?

The South Dakota daddy, who was wanted by authorities earlier this year for failure to pay child support and who previously revealed Chelsea Houska’s alleged TM2 salary, came to his own defense in his response:

They wont… which is why I ended the show… won’t give them what they want anymore… idc how much $$ they offer… season stacked up to be 285,000$ a year….. told em keep your f***ing money I don’t want the s**t anymore … I wasn’t raised that way I’d rather have a 9-5 and a mortgage struggling with bills… ppl say I’m crazy for turning it down… well I say they are crazy for wanting that kind of attention trust me… it’s not worth it

Adam later wrote, “See they won’t tell you how much everyone makes from the show… and I’m not spose to say… but frankly I don’t give a s**t lol…. and you think 285kish is alot…. s**t… the women get hellava lot more than that !”

Do you think Adam’s crazy for turning down all that money?

    I don’t blame him for leaving. Money isn’t worth your privacy and sanity.

    • Barbinop

      He’s always shown in a bad light. Can’t blame him for walking away. He may not be the best dad in the world but he does love his girls. Chelsea’s dad constantly slamming him and putting him down when it wasn’t that long ago that his precious daughter was madly in love with him. Money’s not everything. Good luck Adam

        “That long ago”

        It’s been 6-7 years since Chelsea liked Adam. He’s been a POS to her ever since.

        • NJJuls

          It been a LOT less then 6-7 years since Chelsea loved Adam. She was in love with him & seeing him on the side up until 2-3 years ago.

        • barbinop

          With daddy big bucks smack dab in the middle of everything Adam never stood a chance.

  • Mary D

    Yes, I think he’s crazy for leaving the show…if it’s true..

    • Harper

      Oh but he probably makes a ton of money instructing people on how to be gym rats.

  • Wtf

    If he actually leaves, I don’t think he’s crazy. He’s threatened this before though, so we’ll see.

  • Emmy

    Im not sure anymore. He acts crazy but shows sense. When he is telling the thuth about his reasons to quit, he would be the only cast member with a back bone.
    However, his bad image was mostly formed by himself, not MTV’s editing. You need to give them something to edit or have your ex talk about before they can make you look bad.

    • LoLo

      He won’t leave as long as they are willing to pay. The show didn’t make him lose custody or have to have chaperones with visitation. He did that to himself.

  • DoogieHowser

    Meh he should stay. It isn’t like he has to film that much and quitting the show isn’t going to magically fix that image. He minus as well get the money since he is still going to look bad in the eyes of a bunch of strangers anyways. It’s all on Google and YouTube ready to watch already for prospective spouses and employers anyways.

  • sysmjp

    His fiancé will probably dump him soon which is a good thing for her.

  • LoLo

    Posting a few pics of your kids does not mean you are with your kids all the time. Yes, there are good & bad edits but the camera can’t make you say things you didn’t say. The judges didn’t award him more time for a reason. BTW, I love how he tries to hide his balding head with a mohawk.

    • CatesZebraHoodie

      That douche hawk just accentuates his balding!

    • Elle

      Thank you! Exactly what I was ? thinking

  • Robin

    As I recall, he texted Chelsea right after she had Aubrey and called his newborn baby daughter a big mistake! Adam Lind is a deadbeat dad that only wants to be a parent when it’s convenient for him! So typical for a dude like him to want to blame MTV for his bad image. Did MTV tie him up and keep him from showing up at the Daddy/Daughter dance? Did they hide his phone so he couldn’t call Aubrey on her birthday? The dude is a king-size douche with muscles 3 times larger than his pea-sized brain! Oh, and I doubt MTV pays the likes of him $285,000 for the tiny role he plays in that show. If they do, they have more money than sense!

    • Harper

      Yeah don’t forget that he also pointed out that she was ugly with all her stretch marks. He was a rusty dumpster from the start.

      • savannah

        I believe his words were “fat stretch marked b*tch” anyone who has it in them to say such ugly things to a woman should have no part in raising them. This guy needs to stop blaming everyone else and step up as a real Dad. Not an Instagram photo Dad.

    • FYO

      I don’t doubt he got paid $285k per season. Remember, to film his kid they needed his signature too, not just Chelsea’s. He seems like the type of person who would capitalize on that be it for his kid, himself, or both.

  • Harper

    It’s no secret that he has been a huge douchebag from day 1. I’m only shocked that he still has enough hair to form that big macho looking mohawk.


    I’m just saying, if he makes that much money, why is he behind on child support?! You would think he could manage to pay it. That would be a start for correcting the “bad image”. He just likes to pretend he cares.

    • savannah

      Exaaaactly. And why doesn’t he show up to court dates regarding his daughter.

  • theStevieJBus

    Adam was a bad dad in the beginning but over the past couple years he seems to be attempting to change but Chelsey, Randy and TPTB at TM OG still want to portray him in a bad light.

  • YourMom

    I love how he pretends to not care & say $285k isn’t alot. Easy to say that now when yoy’re not stressing about money. Let’s talk to him in 5-10 years. He’ll be working his fingers to the bone, barely scraping by, living on welfare, driving a pos raggity ass car. Yeah, money means nothin’. Pfffft!

    • savannah

      He cant manage to pay child support now on that income… Good luck getting another penny from him

  • Ali.P

    Does anyone else think the tattoo on his arm look a bit like a skull and a pe*is? Lol

  • Karla Runkel

    He’s So full of shit. He claims he was offered $285,000 but can’t pay $900 child support? Why doesn’t he just sign his rights away like he said he wanted to do to begin with. He’s a pos. Chelsea is an amazing mom.
