article imageNadya Suleman, the 'Octomom' goes on Welfare

By Nicole Byerly     Apr 1, 2012 in Entertainment
After the 2009 birth of her octuplets, Octomom claimed that she would never be supported by the system. As financial problems continue, the infamous Nadya Suleman and her fourteen children are now being supported by California State Welfare.
Nadya Suleman receives nearly $2,000 a month for food courtesy of California tax payers. After birthing eight children in 2009, Suleman now states that she has financial issues.
Her fourteen children; Elijah, Amerah, Joshua, Aiden, 3-year old octuplets Noah, Maliyah, Isaiah, Nariyah, Jonah, Josiah, Jeremiah, and Makai, and twins Caleb and Calyssa were all removed from their private school as a cost-savings option.
Since 2009, Suleman has been on the verge of home foreclosure, which would ultimately leave her and her 14 children homeless. Last week a report from the Los Angeles Times stated that Suleman was facing eviction from her home in La Habra, California, which could be delayed until April.
Suleman does not have a full time job, as she reports it is difficult to work when caring for fourteen children. As an alternative to working, Suleman recently posed nude in the British magazine “Closer” and was paid $8,000 which she reports spending on bills.
In an interview with Anderson Cooper, when asked about posing nude, Suleman responded, "I have to do what I have to do to take care of my family, and I'm not ashamed at all ... I've never sacrificed my morals and values."
She is currently training to be a fitness instructor, where she plans to teach classes during the time her children sleep as a way to earn an income and provide for her children.
