Nadya Suleman aka Octomom, notorious womb incubator and mother of 14, is back on the government dole after a failed attempt at a career in pornography.
Suleman had a rough year last year, after losing her California home to foreclosure, addressing allegations of abuse from her former nannies and hairdresser while also entering into a 30-day drug rehab program, Suleman is now faced once again with serious financial troubles.
According to the NY Daily News, Suleman attempted to get off welfare five months ago but found herself on it after failing to secure steady work.
Suleman is best known for her efforts to conceive multiple children through IVF as a single mother. In 2009, Suleman gave birth to octuplets, after already having six children to care for. Suleman’s inability to support her children and allegations from former nannies and hairstylists over concerns about the children’s well being and living environment have kept the 37-year-old in the news.
Suleman, who filed for bankruptcy last May, will be collecting a reported $2800 a month in government assistance as well as Medicaid health benefits. A portion of that benefit will come in the form of food stamps.
The average IVF treatment, according to About.com, costs about $15,000.
