It’s shaping up to be a cold, dark holiday season for Nadya Suleman and her brood of 14. The media-dubbed Octomom is once again facing dire financial straits — this time severe enough to leave Suleman and her children homeless.
Suleman famously became a mother of 14 when she gave birth to the world’s first surviving set of octuplets in 2008. She’s been crippled by debt ever since.
Suleman’s La Habra, California home was foreclosed on in 2012. She was later evicted from a home in Palmdale, California for falling behind in her $2,950 rent.
Since their last move, Octomom and her kids are living in a five-bedroom house in Orange County, but that arrangement could soon be coming to an end. The property is a former halfway house for recovering alcoholics. Tim Chapman, owner of a rehab center where Nadya did a stint for addiction to Xanax last year, recently sold the house where he let her live rent-free. And it may almost be Christmas, but let’s just say Nadya’s new landlady, Lana El-Jor, isn’t really in the festive, giving mood.
“I have had problems refinancing the building myself because of her. That’s one of the reasons why we have to ask her to leave. The bank refused to support the loan. She is said to have left her houses abused and everything and it worried the bank.”
The legal woes may not by over for Nadya. In June, the Los Angeles County Department of Welfare Fraud Prevention and Investigation took steps to seize Suleman’s bank records and other financial documents after receiving a tip that she had collected welfare, despite allegedly grossing more than $200,000 last year.
If convicted, Suleman could face up to three years in prison.
