In court papers exclusively obtained by The Sun, lawyers for both parties requested a judge postpone the deadline for discovery, which is evidence, from April 2 to July 2 because of “circumstances beyond their control.”
The reason mentioned in court papers is that the Teen Mom 2 star is “unavailable to be deposed and to participate fully in discovery as a result of her recent delivery of a child.”
Despite Chelsea’s unavailability, the parties “continue to work with certain third parties to complete their productions.”
The parties have “exchanged voluminous document production” and are “scheduling and proceeding with certain other depositions” while Chelsea is “unavailable.”
The parties are also requesting the court delay witness dispositions from April 2 to July 2 and other deadlines.
A judge approved the request.
The Sun previously reported Chelsea requested the fact discovery deadline that includes her deposition, where she will provide her testimony, be postponed from February to April 2021.
The January 2021 filing read: “The parties will be unable to complete discovery by the present deadline due to circumstances beyond their control because Defendant Chelsea Houska is unavailable to be deposed until March, at the earliest, as a result of her pregnancy, which is presently in its ninth month.”

A judge on the case approved the request.
Chelsea gave birth to the couple’s fourth child, daughter Walker June, on January 25.
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 obtained by The Sun 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 $3M.
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.”
The court papers claimed: “Envy 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, who is mom to Aubree, 11, Watson, 4, Layne, 2, and Walker, 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 previously reported Cole was sued for $2,557.30 in January.
Culligan Water, a company that sells water filters and dispensers, claimed Cole rented two products from them – an Iron Soft and PE Carbon – for $40 a month.

The company claimed they have not received payments from Chelsea’s husband since October 2, 2020 despite multiple attempts to reach him.
The company sued for past due balance plus cost of the rental units still in his possession.
The company dismissed the case on February 18.
