Jump To Octomom's Stats
The million dollar porn offer that Nadya Suleman turned down in 2009 doesn't look so bad now. Now known simply as Octomom, Suleman has hit some hard times and it doesn't seem to be going over well with her neighbors. Octomom recently filed for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy protection. It seems that although she was rich before now she is broke.
Media attention has slowly diminished since her 2009 pregnancy that spanned eight new babies – bringing her brood up to 14. Critics and advocates of in-vitro fertilization pandered the air waves for months with their assessment of her motives and the potential problems. Well, it appears that the problems have arrived.
Octomom originally swore up and down that she would be able to provide a comfortable living for all her offspring. Suleman laughed off suggestions that her 14 children would ever need the support or help of the state of California. But as media play dried up and freebies diminished, the mother of that clan fell behind in mortgage payments and her money woes began. Her financial straits pushed her to a point where she appeared semi-nude in a British publication for $8,000. In addition, she has begun to seek the help of California's welfare by accepting food stamp assistance.
The huge change in her mindset has put off some in her LaHabra neighborhood. Her van was recently vandalized and according to Suleman, she has received a number of death threats. This fall from grace has spurred another round of media attention. Suleman has now come forward and said that she may have made a mistake adding eight additional mouths to feed when she already had six children. The single mother now focuses on becoming a fitness instructor.
