Nadya Suleman, dubbed the ‘Octomom’ in 2009 after giving birth to octuplets who were conceived through IVF treatments had a recent run-in with the law. Suleman, a single mom, already had six children at the time she gave birth to her octuplets. Suleman, who now resides in La Habra, California with her 14 children has been very public about the financial demands of raising such a large family by herself. Recently Suleman was on the Today Show revealing that her family was now on food stamps, a situation Suleman vowed in 2009 never to be in.
Now we’ve learned that that Octomom was paid a visit by Child Protective Services yesterday after a tip was given to police by Suleman’s hair stylist. Apparently her stylist went to the police station and expressed concerns over the living conditions in which Suleman’s children are living. According to TMZ, the stylist allegedly told CPS that all 14 children shared one toilet because only one toilet in the house is operational. The stylist also told law enforcement that Suleman locks her children in their rooms all the time in order to go about her business during the day and that the kids appeared malnourished. She accused Suleman of allowing the children to defecate in the backyard and claimed the children were unkempt. Photos given to TMZ show small children using portable potties outside.
Social Services visited Suleman’s home and reportedly spent two hours there. According to TMZ, they found the children to be in good health and decided against removing the children from the home.
TMZ is also reporting today that Suleman, who is now on welfare, supposedly paid $520 for two haircuts and a Brazilian blow-dry.
