TEEN Mom 2 star Chelsea Houska’s husband Cole DeBoer is in the clear in his $2,500 lawsuit, as the stars continue to battle their $3 million court war.
Culligan Water, a company that sells water filters and dispensers, sued Cole 32, claiming they had not received payments from him since October 2, 2020.
The company claimed Chelsea's husband rented two products from them – an Iron Soft and PE Carbon – for $40 a month.
The Sun can exclusively reveal the company dismissed the case on February 18.
The clerk for the South Dakota courthouse could not confirm if the case was dropped because Cole paid off the amount, though it is likely.
As The Sun previously reported, the February 8, 2021 filing alleged: “On 11/18/20, we sent him a postcard asking him to call the office. On 12/10/20 and 1/5/21 we sent him letters saying he needed to pay the balance or contact us with arrangements.”
The company claimed he “did not respond.”
They attempted to reach him over the phone on January 26, 2021, but he did not respond and they were unable to leave a message because his inbox was full.
The papers continued: “We are filing for the past due balance plus cost of the rental units still in his possession.”
The company requested $2,557.30.
The complaint came nearly a year after Chelsea, 29, and Cole were sued for “withholding 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 in April 2020.
Envy claimed in the lawsuit, which YouTube channel Without a Crystal Ball first broke, 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.”
Chelsea and Cole were required to pay Envy 35 percent of all fees or royalties for domestic deals and 40 percent for foreign deals.
The court papers claimed Chelsea and Cole “breached their contracts by directing certain Brands to directly pay Houska, DeBoer, one of the other Shared Clients, and/or other persons or entities to avoid paying Envy Licensing Fees.”
The MTV stars also “both failed to perform, without any cause or reason, many of their responsibilities to the Brands.
"This included, but is not limited to Bombay Hair Wand, Carseat Canopy, Daniel Wellington, Diff, Fab Fit Fun, Highway3, Kitsch, Kitsch Hats, Loving Tan, One Memory Lane, Perfekt Beauty, Profile Sanford, Sintillia, Sparkling Organics Sipp, Sugar Bear Hair, Teami Blends, and Timeless Organics.”
Allegedly failing to meet the contractual obligations caused them to “forfeit certain fees upon which Envy was entitled to receive.”
The court papers continued to claim Chelsea and Cole made “millions of dollars” due to Envy's efforts.
The company is suing the defendants for $3 million.
Chelsea, Cole and the other defendants hit back against the lawsuit by filing a counterclaim in May 2020, alleging Envy actually withheld $150,000 from them.
Chelsea and Cole denied the allegations and claimed they “do not owe any payments to Envy" and that the company “wrongfully withheld payments due to Chelsea.”
The reality stars claimed Envy has “actually harmed the professional careers of Defendants Chelsea and Cole by withholding considerable payments from them and acting in an unprofessional manner, including but not limited to, arguing with and acting disrespectfully toward Chelsea and Cole, potential and then-existing licensing contacts, and other professional contacts of Chelsea and Cole.”
The Defendants also claimed Envy "intentionally omitted numerous deals and/or revenues from the Account Statements for the sole purpose of depriving Chelsea, Cole, and TWGG from receiving funds rightfully due and owing to them.”
Chelsea claimed they owe her $154,074.62 from deals with Loving Tan, Profile, Diff Eyewear and more.
They are asking for the lawsuit to be dismissed and to receive “monetary damages on their Counterclaims.”
Envy denied the claims against them in their response.
The Sun also reported the Teen Mom 2 alum requested the fact discovery deadline that includes her deposition, where she will provide her testimony, be postponed from February to April 2021 because of her then pregnancy with daughter Walker, who she welcomed on January 25.
The case remains ongoing.
Chelsea left Teen Mom 2 in 2020 to “focus on the next chapter in life will focus on developing our brand and taking things to the next level with new endeavors and expanding family businesses.”
The parents of Aubree, 11, Watson, 3, and Layne, 2, built their massive $418,000 dream farmhouse in South Dakota.
In January, the Teen Mom 2 star launched home decor line Aubree Says, named after her oldest child.
The company came under fire by fans for its “overpriced” items.
